I know some of you are just Goddesses with makeup so I'm wondering if you could give me any advice,
I LOVE the Deadly Dams capris and want them in both black and leopard but due to an unfortunate accident with my horse and a barbed wire fence four years ago my lower left calf has 3 lines of scars about four inches long, they have faded a lot and are almost my skin color now but I actually needed stitches and never got them so they are pretty wide (about 3/4's of an inch at the widest), so are pretty noticeable,
does anyone know of any makeup tricks I could use to cover the scars so I don't stand out like a sore thumb in capris? Or should I go for the cigarette pants and just wear them with boots at all times?
I have pale skin about one shade from being as pale as you can get, silver tone, if you have any makeup/product recommendations I might be able to use?
<3 thanks ladies!
I'm a fan of Kat Von D tattoo concealer if you want to cover something, as it isn't all globby like Dermablend. And Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs has nice coverage, though it is sheer. But at the risk of exposing my hippie leanings, its very empowering to think of scars as being beautiful and giving us each individual dimension!
That sounded bossy, I just meant that you're beautiful, scars or no scars :)
thank you :), I'll have to try the tattoo concealer, it sounds perfect actually,
I have no problems wearing things to show scars ( wear short dresses all the time) but I gave my last pair of capris (which I loved) away because they end right where the scars start so it draws a LOT of attention to them and people were always asking me if I'd been attacked by a dog or something :/
also, as scars go, these are more silvery now (really old scars) ,
Im going to look into the options, thanks ladies!
Miss PaperDoll, I have the other problem, mine are not raised, they're inset
I have a 6 in scar on my left knee. I had my knee replaced. Yep, with metal. So technically, I'm becoming a Terminator. ;) Honey, my advice, Don't give a FUCK! I don't. If people want to look at my scar fine, that's cool. Whatever. And if they want to ask, well then I tell them I was bitten by a shark, (I wasn't) And give them a story. They are a part of who you are, wear 'em with honor.
I agree, my scars are part of me, I just want to know because I want to look 'pretty' in them every now and then without having to talk about scars...
P.S. tattoo concealer seems to be working great!!!
