You Asked How To Cover Up A Scar

The scars make us unique after all and we don’t necessarily think that they should be covered up always. However, we also feel the need to have the most possible flawless skin, as perfectionists. So, we went to the experts for help when one of you asked how exactly to go about concealing a scar.
According to Jessie Powers, media educator and ‘Makeup for Ever’ pro, you can use any makeup on a scar that you would normally use on your face, once your skin is healed. If you’re worried, just be sure to patch-test first. Powers says that first makes sure the scar is oil free and don’t put moisturizer on it, when you’re prepping your face to put makeup on. After that, apply your concealer. Powers suggests using a powder in between the layers if you apply more than one layer of concealer.
Powers gave us an awesome tip for use of technique. She says to apply concealer in a target shape and as the center of the target, put some of the product on the scar itself. Then gradually using less product as you move away from the center point while blending additional product around the scar. To do the blending, Powers uses both a brush and a sponge and to press the products into the skin, she used a stippling motion. She says that the sponge helps her blend and lock the concealer in place while the brush helps her apply product without removing it with her fingertips.
Powers recommends using a powder and a puff to set it. She says to lock everything in place on the skin, push the powder into the concealer. And to add one last layer of insurance, you could also use a makeup setting spray at the very end of the covering process.
Once it’s all set, double check to make sure that the concealer is well-blended into the surrounding skin and if you feel that with makeup, you’ve accidently made the scar more noticeable. Powers advises that to create a uniform-looking texture and finish over the scar and surrounding skin, always plan on covering an area much larger than the actual scar. To create a more realistic-looking blend, she also suggests adding a light coverage foundation over the full area.
