Covering a spot usually necessitates a little more effort than concealing a tiny imperfection. Let’s talk about how to choose concealers to cover scars.

Neutralize the color of concealer

It’s possible that if you use a light-coverage concealer over redness, it will seem pink. If you use a color-correcting concealer, you’ll still need to go over the area with a natural skin-toned product. Otherwise, colourful patches will cover your skin.

Avoid light color concealer for the raised scars.

Avoid light-colored concealers for covering a raised scar. It’s likely that they’re too bright for your eyes. Try to apply  a concealer that matches with your skin tone instead.

Use a correct tone of concealer for each type of scar

If the scar on your face is red, use a yellow or olive-toned concealer; if it’s grey-black, use a richer apricot or terracotta-toned concealer. When concealing indent scars, use a slightly darker concealer than the rest of your skin. If your skin is matured, use a mature skin concealer to hide your imperfections.
