Pockmarks on Your Face? How to Conceal Them With Makeup

 

If you have a pockmark -- a concave scar -- on your face from acne or chicken pox, you can conceal it by filling it in with a concealer that's just a shade lighter than your skin tone. Here's how to do it:

  • Using a small makeup brush with a pointed tip, dip the brush into the concealer.
  • Dot the concealer into the pockmark, filling the center of the scar. Be careful not to go outside the scar.
  • Allow the concealer to dry, then dust with a powder.

For raised scars, it's best to use a concealer that matches your skin tone.
