Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, Professional Makeup Artist, and today I'm going to give you some tips on scarring and waterproof makeup. Let's start with the waterproof side. So, what we're going to need is essentially our waterproof mascara; for going swimming, that's what we're going to need. So, what we're going to do is just take our spooly into the dry mascara that is waterproof and we are just going to go along our eyelashes. Wiggle it back and forth. Waterproof is slightly hard to work with just because it dries it out. So, wiggling will help give the best effect in preventing clumping. And you can roll it a little bit and although waterproof works on both top and bottom, I suggest just doing the top lashes. Those are the ones we want to enhance the most anyway. After we have our waterproof mascara on, we are going to use our concealer. So, if we have scarring anywhere, the best way to eliminate it is not in texture, we can't cover texture, it's always going to show. But, we can eliminate color. So, if we see any redness or scarring going on amongst the face, we're going to go in with our concealer. Find something that matches and can go over and cover the redness. Sometimes the best is just to try a color and experiment and press into the skin. Now, we want to press because if we swipe, it can cause irritation and oftentimes remove the product we just applied. So, we light taps work. This can be for any kind of accidental scar that happening, that happens or it can go for acne scarring as well. The goal is just to pat and cover. Go over anywhere on the skin, this goes for the face or anywhere else on the body, it doesn't matter. And then if we're connecting the scarring and the waterproof altogether, after we apply our concealer, it's always good to use a setting spray which will help eliminate the sweating and water to come through. "So, just close your eyes." And just give it a few quick spritz and that will help seal your makeup from sweat and water. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just gave you some tips on scarring and waterproof makeup.
