Has Anyone Used These Make-Up Products To Conceal Pitted Acne Scars?

Recommended Posts

Lately, I've been searching Youtube up and down for tutorials on how to conceal pitted acne scars. I've come across three videos that struck with me and am wondering if anyone else has tried the products from them and can tell me how well they concealed your pitted scars:

From video 1: (video by Diamondsandheels14)

  • Makeup Forever HD Micro-Perfecting Primer
  • Shiseido Refining Primer Makeup or Shiseido Pore Smoothing Corrector
  • Dermablend Cover Cream (I especially want to know how well these two Dermablend products work for concealing pitted scars!)
  • Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Foundation
  • Smashbox, MakeupForEver or Dior's Airflash
  • Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless Powder

From video 2: (video by EnKoreMakeup)

  • Smashbox Photo Finish
  • Eve Pearl Magic Salmon Concealer
  • Ben Nye Tattoo Cover
  • translucent powder (your choice of brand)
  • mineralize skin finish (optional)

From video 3: (video by EnKoreMakeup)

  • Skindinavia Stage & Set
  • Skindinavia Cool Flash
  • Skindinavia Dance!
  • Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray
  • Skindinavia No More Shine
  • Per-fekt Skin Perfection Gel
  • FaceAtelier Pro Ultra Foundation

Photo Finish is a wonderful product, but get the Light version if you're acne-prone, and don't wear any primer for more than 5 or 6 hrs at a time.

Translucent powder is a staple cosmetic (stay away from the stuff in the white/gold round box, it's talcum based.)

Sheseido everything is quality, but very overpriced.

If you have any deep scars..Dermaflage. Seriously, stuff is AMAZING. It's a topical filler that gives the illusion of smooth skin, the only downside to it is the scar can't be too wide (anymore than an inch and a half) or it won't move well with facial expressions. I use it on my two deepest scars and it instantly transforms my face.

To be honest, though, I find it really difficult to apply any foundation other than airbrush for moderate-severe scarring. Even if you can get it to look perfect, after a few hours it tends to not look so good...cream based foundation just sinks in too easily even with a primer (my experience anyway). Airbrush makeup is the only thing I can consistently get to look good and last all day and actually look like my own skin.

I've tried Enkore's tips and my skin looked great for about two hours before it started to look cakey and unnatural. Although the salmon concealer really does work well to neutralize the shadow of the scars, it just didn't hold up for me.

I've looked into Dermaflage and apparently it comes in a very small tube and isn't all that useful if you have a handful of scars like me because it'll run out so fast. :/

Have you tried the Ben Nye Tattoo Cover Enkore suggests? It looks awesome in his video but I don't know how I feel about wearing what's basically stage makeup everyday.

If you have a lot of deep scars it probably wouldn't be worth it. I have a lot of scars myself, but only a few of them are very deep and those are those are the ones I use it on.

I haven't tried Ben Nye's Tattoo Cover, but It's relatively inexpensive and has a lot of good reviews so it may be worth trying out. Most tattoo cover cream foundations/concealers are really heavy feeling which is another reason I try to stay away.
