Anyone know of any good makeup to hide strech marks? Doing a shoot for a friend and she is worried about them, told her they could be airbrushed out...but she isn't liking that idea...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I will write this "TO" whomever would be doing the make-up. you, her, whoever.

Use a thick concealer. I would get one that is geared for concealing acne (it's meant to cover-up redness and smooth out skin surfaces) one that matches her skin tone (make sure it matches the area that you will be covering up..legs are a different tone than a stomach, and both are different than the face)....
If you are really skilled in layering make-up, your best tool would be a GREEN concealer (the green will coverup all red or purple lines), combined with her skin-tone match.

once you use a good concealer to cover up any unwanted color (like reddish streaks or purple-y lines), use a thin layer of normal foundation to smooth out the "bare skin" and makeup covered skin. make sure you smooth it out over the areas evenly. (you dont want an effect like a car that gets spray painted in one spot)

than your 3rd and last step, lightly brush powder over an even larger area...that will make the skin look soft and smooth.

in short...you kind of work your way out. you start by covering the immediate area, then blending the rest. (it's just like photoshop but with a canvas instead of a monitor...think "I would use the blending tool in PS" so blend the real thing.)

I am no official make-up artist. But I have always done my own make-up and I do the make-up for models that are shot by my husband. and I saw that no one else has replied to you...so i figured some advice is better than none.
feel free to PM me if you have any more questions, or need any detailed explanations.
Good luck. I hope this helps. best regards.
p.s.(I could use more votes in the modeling contest...hehe)

I have worked with a couple of MUA that have used air brushed make up to cover problem areas.

The problem I have with concealer is it rubs off, gets on clothes. I have found it is easier and better to fix in post... but it can be a tough sell to the client.

DermaBlend fixes EVERYTHING; tattoos, vitaligo, stretch marks, or whatever else you don't care to have showing. Most reasonable sized theatrical supply places have it, it's also available online in a bunch of places...

I second the DermaBlend, it doesn't rub off as easily as other coverups. Many strippers use it to cover tattoos while working, so it has to stand up to some serious abuse.

I use Dermablend, you can order it online in sample packs or get it a Carsen Piere Scot, or another high end cosmetic store.
It covers anything, and is waterproof, can be used on the face as well.
