Silicon primer and Acne Scar makeup

Hi all,

I dont believe we have to be ugly in this age and time

even if we have scars on our face.

Its just take a bit more afford to look good.

TCA cross is slowly filling in my scars but I feel it need

at least 2 years for my scar to heal to at least 70-80 %

I am so sick of waiting for my scar to improve slowly.

I just want to look good while tca cross improve my scaring.

Call me vain! Who isn't? :P

Just need to know anyone is good with hiding their deep scar with

makeup ?

I have read that a good silicon primer will somehow fill in

the scar a bit.

So it seems that the primer prepare the skin by smoothing

it out first and act as a buffer between the skin and the makeup.

Then foundation is apply over it for a more natural look..

I am looking at silicon primer from Smashbox and dermablend cover creme.

Mineral makeup, silicon primer, cover creme....

Any makeup tips!!! Please share with the noobs like me.

Thank you.

Hi Mary,

Thanks for the tip.

I saw that Smashbox has a new product - Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light

that is water-based not oil-based.

Has anyone tried it before?

Do it provide as good a coverage as the original Smashbox primer?

Anyway, here is my research on makeups brands on the internet that

help hide blemishes like acne scar:

1) Dermablend - makeup to hide scar

2) Covermark - makeup to hide scar (the oldest brand I from what I have read)

3) CoverBlend - makeup to hide scar

4) Clinique - makeup for acne

5) Relvon - Revlon colorstay foundation

6) Estee Lauder - Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup

7) Aubrey Nicole - Natural mineral makeup / has gel primer too.

8) Joppa Mineral - Natural mineral makeup

9) Jane Iredale - Natural mineral makeup

10) Smashbox - best primer in the market now

11) Philosophy - the Present (a layer of clear makeup to smooth skin)

12) Monistat anti-chafing gel-powder (Cheap and good makeup primer)

Anyone has experience with the above brands stated.

Please share.

I am confuse as there are those who rave about mineral makeup

and they say it look the most natural - like not wearing makeup.

Is this true? Please enlighten me.

There are so many brands. I am seeing lots of stars in my head now.

Which brand / product combo works for people with moderate scars like me???

It is not true that mineral oil is comedogenic:

Always read your ingredient list and make sure there isn't something that causes you problems.

This is what I use:

Clinique Continuous Coverage with a very light hand. It hides discoloration better than anything else I have ever tried, especially if blotted and then reapplied.

I have two icepick scars on the side of my nose. I don't suggest that anyone else do this but what I do is take a very sharp toothpick and dab the inside of them with nail polish (Orly's Nails for Males which is a matte finish nail polish) and then relatively quickly dab it with a light powder. I use Lancome.

In general I like a dewy finish overall. I think matte finishes look dry and old.

Hope this helps someone!

Hi Anna,

Is it advisable to put nail polish on the skin just to fill it up.

Isn't it toxic?

I think you should try a gel primer to fill the hole instead.

I have read the Philosophy : the present is can fill the hole like a layer of glue.

Anyway. I have bought the below product from the internet:

1) Smashbox primer

2) Dermablend cover creme

3) Philosophy : The Present

4) Aubrey Nicole : Gel primer

Once, I receive them, I will post my experiment results with these product.

Wish me luck.

athumbysg,

Of course I agree that you wouldn't want to use it all over your face, but this is just two little dots. I figure you would get a lot more on yourself by just doing your nails and getting some on your cuticles. I will take a look at the primer though. Always looking for more products! :dance:

Please let us know your results!

Thanks!

Anna
