Makeup to cover scars—expert tips and full cover products

There’s no rule that says you have to use makeup to cover scars. Facial scarring is commonplace, often as the result of acne or perhaps a skin condition or injury, and nobody should ever feel like they have to hide or disguise their scars unless they actually want to.
