Create the base for the scar with Collodion Special FX Liquid – this costs around Dhs150 from special stores.
Add an indentation in to the scar, to make it deeper, add more layers of the special effects liquid. Make a faint line where you want the scar with lip liner in pink or red, then layer the Collodion on top.
When you have the desired appearance for your scar, colour over with concealer, fill it in with red lipstick, and lightly powder.
For extra realistic effect, add some small lengths of black thread to imitate stitches.
