View Full Version : covering up birth marks
Okay I have a dark brown 3 inch long 1.5 inch wide birth mark on my right upper knee. And I was kinda wondering if anybody would know how to cover up a birth mark like that? Because the costume that I'm working on currently requires me to show that part of my leg. Because people who usually see my birthmark think that I got into some kind of accident are something. Any advice would be greatly appreciated :) .

There's a kind of makeup called Dermablend that's designed specifically to cover tattoos and birthmarks and stuff like that. It's available at theatrical and makeup supply stores, and I think some department stores might also carry it.

Yup, you usually find it near the Lancome counter in dept. stores.

I know how you feel- I've got a purple keloid scar on my knee that I need to hide whenever I wear skirts.... it's so annoying when people are like "omg - what happened?" :p
