Pretty good? Uh-uh. These cosmetics are pretty great, say Real Simple’s beauty editors, who chose them from among hundreds of makeup items.
What you need: Green color-correcting fluid + thick concealer + translucent powder.
What to do: If the scar is red, choose a green color-correcting fluid to offset the redness. Top that with a thick concealer that matches the skin surrounding the scar to hide any remaining green tones. If the scar is not red, skip straight to the thick concealer. For effective coverage, tap (don’t rub) either product onto the scar with your finger. Set with loose or pressed translucent powder.
