Hiding Scars - July 26th 2009, 05:37 AM

My grandparents are having their 50th Anniversary this summer and they've invited my mom and I along.Only problem is it's really formal and the dress they bought for me doesn't cover my arms.I was thinking long gloves but they'll seem out of place,and bangles don't cover my arm far enough.Unfortunatly concealer doesn't really work(though I am planning on using it anyways) and I've tried looking for Dermablend and tattoo make-up cover up but haven't been able to find it.Anyone have any ideas?

You wonder why I never smile anymore,but with broken homes come broken smiles.

Has the acidic rain burned a hole so deep,that we don't care what's beneath our feet?

I'm a freak and my best friend is a pirate-ninja-dinosaur,what a unique friendship!

My heart is so numb,that I can't feel it breaking

If you can find any of those cute like long covers that matches your dress, it should be fine. You know, like the formal sweater type things..I don't really know if you know what I'm talking about...

The anniversary sounds like fun Have you thought about maybe getting a little cardigan or shrug to go over the dress? I think shrugs usually look good with a dress and they will cover your arms.

Hey there,

I think that wearing a cardigan would probably be the best idea for hiding these scars on your arms. If the make up you've already tried doesn't really work, you could also try other make-up. Mineral powders are usually recommended. As for cover up make-up, you can usually purchase it in deparment stores or at a chemist/pharmacy. You could also consider going to a doctor and asking for a referral to someone who specialises in camouflage make up.
There's also a huge list of cover-up tips in [this article] that may be able to give you some more ideas.
I'm going to close this thread now as basically all of the cover up options are in the link I've provided you.

Take care, I hope you manage to have a good time at your grandparents anniversary
