I use a palette called extreme make up by The Dermacolour specialists. Its only £25 or so and its a palette of super thick concealers..16 different shades, goes on beautifully and would sit in your scar well, then you can blend it in and powder )

Hey hun
I have scars across my stomach from an accident a while ago. Ive never had them covered as its easy to pose coering them... On your face though must be difficult! I cant give you advice on how to cover?blend it i'm afraid but I can highly recommend Jesse!
Sorry I've not been more helpful but I'm sure she can be :-)

To shadow what others have said though, embrace it! Its a part of you as are mine and although I hate all the questions that come with it, I dont mind having them in the shot if the tog doesnt mind

Good luck!

Hiya,

If the scar is indented no make up not even Vichy or Dermablend will hide that, however you can get a product called Dermaflage which is a silicone based product that you use to fill the indented area, it's not terribly expensive and does work very well.

I do a significant amount of work for Katie Piper and her foundation helping people with this type of issue so am very aware of the products available on the market, if memory serves there are some videos on youtube for this product that shows it's uses.

If you require further assistance then please email me.

Estee Lauder Maximum Cover is also excellent at hiding scars and it photographs beautifully. Xxx

You might try and work out exactly what lighting arrangement shows it up and make a point of warning the photographer that it will happen if they are doing something similar so it isn't a surprise. It might be that with some lighting arrangements it is simple to PShop it out...others less so.

Ive used estee lauder maximum cover and wasnt a fan-i have very pale skin and even the lightest shade is orangey on my skin!
Extreme makeup have some great products though and do products that fill indents and then colour over
Ive used them on some deep scars on my arm
I used this set and it was very good
