Fake scars are super easy to do. A lot easier than other makeup effects.
Some fake scars take special materials to make.
Others take things you probably have in your pantry.
You may think well, fake scars. Big deal.
But did you know that there are tons of different fake scars?
There are ones that are fresh and ones that’ve been there for years.
Fake scars with remnants of stitches.
Fake scars with a little bit of a shine to them.
Small fake scars, long ones, thick fake scars and thin ones.
I want to learn how to make ones that tell stories.
Will there be blood?
No, not this time. This search was for tutorials where the fake scars weren’t bloody.
I wanted aged scars, not new ones.
I didn’t find many (looks like most people like their fake scars to ooze something).
These are the closest to what I was looking for.
This first video uses Rigid Collodium, like you see in the picture above.
Rigid Collodium is a liquid that is applied to the skin, and as it dries it stretches the skin taut.
BeautifulYouTV shows you how it’s done.
This next tutorial is by Dorte Iversen.
She uses regular old school glue sticks to act as nose putty.
She uses several eye shadows for the coloring.
I like this tutorial because I have all the materials. But even if I didn’t they’re all very inexpensive.
This last tutorial shows us how to make two different scars.
The first is a freshly sewn stitched scar.
The second fake scar is made to look a little older.
