Hi, I'm Daniela Rowson. I'm a makeup artist, and I'm going to show you how to hide acne scars. So, the products that we will need are a face primer, concealer, and a concealer brush. So, when hiding acne scars, you want to make sure that the skin is really even. So, a skin primer will actually help the texture of that area that you need covered. You just need a tiny bit, and with the same concealer brush, you're going to dab it right on the area you want covered. And, this will help the texture, and it'll be smoother. That way, when you put on the concealer, it'll look more natural. So, this won't fully hide the scar, but it will definitely help it look more natural. And, the next step we'll be using the concealer. So, you want to just get a tiny pump, the same concealer brush, and just dab it lightly on the area. Start patting it. When covering scars, you want to do this patting motion so that the product sticks on there, and it doesn't blend off. And, use a concealer that's about your skin shape. So, if your scars are indented into your skin, you can also use a line filler, and that'll help you fill in that area so it looks more smooth on your skin. My name is Daniela Rowson, and thanks for watching.
