Tips & Tricks: Hide face scars using makeup and enhance beauty
The first thing to note is that the area of the face where the scar or acne appears, there what type of skin you have, either oily or dry. Therefore you should hydrate that part more than usual; apply cream or moisturizer before starting makeup. And after this facial should be your routine.
Note: Every night apply moisturizer to that part before go to bed.
Check that the area of the scar you want to cover, if it’s not clean and dry. Wash it with a mild soap/face wash and pat it gently. Before you make up any scar, it is important to keep it well moisturized as this favors the regeneration of the skin, so apply moisturizer and give a gentle massage with your fingers, also apply primer.
Let’s begin to hide face scars using makeup by applying an appropriate concealer since according to the tone of the scar, must counter it using a red, pink, or yellow concealer. As the scars are commonly red, yellow tone so concealer is always the most preferred.
The next step is to keep a small amount of darker tone foundation on the scar you want to hide; then apply another (less dark) foundation all over your face. Ideally, it is a liquid foundation because it is thicker and has more coverage. In addition, it is also advisable to use little less darker tone than your skin for better results. Apply it all over your face to show off a unique, homogeneous skin tone. Do not rub the foundation on the skin because you could end up removing all makeup. Continue spreading the foundation until the scar is concealed completely. You can use more foundation if need.
Apply compact powder or loose powder with a large brush to remove all gloss, and to continue the work to hide the scars. Press lightly and sprinkle the powder on the area covered and extends slightly outward also to cover the surrounding areas.
Also applies blush, still more so if the scar is in this part of the face appearing gets concealed, as well as giving light and life to face, continue to cover the scar so it can’t be seen with the naked eye.
Always remember don’t overdo it using makeup to hide scars, because if you apply too much makeup on the affected skin all you get is highlighted area.
