Hello
I have a long scar from my nose to my lip. Sometimes the light hits it the wrong way and it looks terrible. I was wondering if you have any tips on how to cover it up. I already use foundation and powder but because Its a deep scar it doesnt really do much.
Help please!
Thank you xxx

Work with photographers who don't hit it with the wrong light!  :-)

Deep scarss are hard to cover up because you have to fill them in somewhat...emrace it as part of you!...just remember to tell people before they book you so atleast you're being honest.

Sorry that wasn't very helpful!

+1

and most photographers can photoshop it out but make sure to state it on your profile that its there so they are aware of this, maybe even put one picture up showing it?

Good Luck

Hiya lovely,

When you apply foundation and powder does the scar go back to normal skin colouring? Is it the texture of your skin that looks bad or the colour? If it's the colour I could probably help you. Feel free to drop me a message

Thanks everyone. Hey Jesse, the colour doesnt stand out at all, its literally just the indent you can see. When im facing the camera you cant see it, its just when im side on you can see it quite clearly. Is there any sort of make up i could use to cover it? Something really thick im guessing

Thank you

try "derma blend" that is a very thick highly pigmented make up designed to cover scars and birthmarks x

Try the Red Cross.

Yes, seriously; they do special camouflage make-up courses for people with serious scarring to help cover it up. Yours does not sound nearly serious enough but they are nice people.

Yeah definitely try derma blend. You can get Vichy - Dermablend in boots, it comes in a stick form or a foundation form. Or maybe next time you do a shoot hire a MUA who can do camouflage make up that wouldn't mind teaching you how to cover it yourself .
