Any recommendations to hide a large scar??

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone


I fell down a flight of stairs in mid August and broke my shulder. As a result, I needed surgery and now have a huge (about 6") scar on my upper arm and shoulder. I was planning on wearing a tank top style dress so the scar will show. Did anyone or does anyone have anything they used to cover a scar or tattoos that worked? If so, can you pass on the name of the item.


I really do not want this scar to show.

Thanks so much

I have a similar issue... I have a 3rd degree burn on my chest and my dress is strapless. The best I have found so far is Dermablend (the cover cream vs. leg and body magic is better for scars). It doesn't smudge as easily as some of the other concealing makeups do. I have also tried Covermark, but could not find a good color match for my skin.


To get the best smudge resistance, you have to apply the setting power and let it set for a few minutes before brushing it. I also apply a barrier spray (after the setting powder) made by ColorTration. This helps set the makeup even further. I would recommend you try the makeup before your wedding day to make sure you get the application right. I also tested the makeup a few times and wore a white shirt to make sure I didn't get a lot of smudging.


I've seen several threads on this forum about tatoo cover-ups. Try searching this forum using the word "tattoo" and you should be able to get to those threads. Hope this helps!

Great advice Natasha i will have to try that! I had a horrible bicycle accident the day before labor day and terribly hurt my face. I went to the make up counter at Nordy's and use smash box primer and laura mercier foundation and it works pretty good.


but my point is any good photographer should be able to photoshop it out of photos with a few clicks, and if you get a pic you love and the scar is bothering you just ask your photog to work on it and the should happily help you!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
