Overview

No one likes dealing with acne, but it can be even more frustrating if your acne is so bad that it leaves scars. Procedures to remove acne scars can be costly and even then, they might not remove the scars. However, you can cover up your acne scars with makeup. This can make it easier for you to go out into the world and regain self-confidence.

Step 1

Start with a clean skin surface by washing your face with a gentle cleanser. Pat your skin dry with a towel.

Step 2

Apply oil-free moisturizer to your skin to create a smooth surface on which to apply your makeup. Having dry skin will cause your make up to cake and catch in flaky skin pieces and settle into your scars. This is unattractive and ineffective at hiding your scars.

Step 3

Apply a full coverage foundation to your whole face. Use clean fingertips or a makeup sponge to evenly apply the foundation all over your face. Be extra careful in blending the foundation around the jaw, neckline and hairline.

Step 4

Dab on concealer (either liquid or in a stick form) onto your most troublesome scars. Red, brown or just generally discolored areas from your acne scars can be covered up with a concealer. Use your fingertip or a concealer brush to pack on the makeup onto the scar. Then, blend it into your foundation.

Step 5

Use a powder to set your foundation so that it won't run and you won't have a breakthrough of oil within a few hours. Pat on pressed powder using a rolling motion with the sponge. Your skin will have a flawless matte finish and your acne scars will be much more difficult to see.
