Concealers are the perfect makeup product to hide minor flaws on your skin. And, when you have burn marks or scars, then this concealers will only help you. Thick concealers have higher coverage formula and thus, they can completely conceal the burn marks. If you have shorter burn marks, then use colour correcting concealers like BH Cosmetics 6 Color Concealer and Corrector Palette or Wet n Wild Color Commentary CoverAll Correcting Palette. Light green colour correcting concealer is perfect for most of the Indian skin tones.

So, there is a small trick of how to cover the concealers on your burn marks. You can use either makeup sponge like QVS 20 Makeup Sponges Value Pack or a concealer brush like MAC 195 Concealer Brush. But, you gently need to press it on the scar. You can also use your fingers, but with fingers, you won’t get that level of precision.

4. Foundation

Foundation is the perfect way to conceal your face and give it a refined and radiant touch. Since you are suffering from burn marks, you need to choose a foundation which has higher coverage formula like Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25H Foundation with Comfort Serum or Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation. But, you must remember that you have already used primer and concealers of higher coverage and thick texture. Thus, if you use a foundation of higher coverage, then your entire face might look whitewashed and cakey. Thus, choose the foundation formula as per your burn scar intensity.

5. Powdering

Now, you need to apply a translucent powder like Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation or Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation over the scar, so that the area looks airbrushed and perfectly natural. Make sure that the shade of the powder must complement the concealer, if you have used a colour correcting concealer. This step will ensure that the scar is completely covered and still the face is looking natural and not cakey.

6. Highlight your Best Feature
