Your created scar wax will adhere to the clean surface the quickest and the easiest. Also, make sure that you’re not overly sensitive or prone to allergies before you begin this process.

Step 2: With the help of a knife or a small spatula, you should scoop out the wax you have, or create your own unique mixture! All you got to do is use two tablespoons of cornflour, and one tablespoon of vaseline. Mix this up with a spoon, or a spatula. Use a clean pot or a plastic dish where you will mash the products.

Step 3: Roll your created mixture into small balls. You might end up with a sticky residue, which is why you should add more Vaseline to its outer layers. This way, the product will be easier to move around and manipulate.

Step 2: Keep on spreading the scar wax till you are satisfied with its shape, length, as well as size. Once you’re satisfied it is time to color this piece with your foundation shade and make it look as realistic as possible!

Step 3: It is time to use fake blood on top of your masterpiece. Paint the outsides with a dark red, and slowly move onto a lighter shade. Also, add a bit of dark brown for depth!

Step 4: Use a makeup sponge or a brush to blend in the product, and to get that ideal and smooth transition. At this point, also use banana powder to set your created wound in place, and to ensure that it lasts throughout the night.

PS: To make the wound look even scarier, you can stick a couple of pin needles and give it an illusion of damaged skin, it will look spooky for sure!

How to make Scar wax without Vaseline?

In case you don’t have vaseline or petroleum jelly at home (which are quite rare to begin with) you can also create this scar wax without these two ingredients! Make sure that you have:

  • Vegetable oil (or sunflower oil)
  • Flour
  • Plastic cup or dish
  • Spoons

Step 1: Use three tablespoons of flour. Add two teaspoons of vegetable oil into the mixture.

Step 2: Start mixing the mixture with your spoon immediately since it is important for the oil to bind along with your flour before it soaks it up completely. You will want to avoid dry textures.

Step 3: Mix it for 1-2 minutes, and pour the product into your preferred container so it can harden and get solid.

PS: Another practical tip that you will like and also appreciate is to use lash glue! Why and how? A lash glue has a similar texture to liquid latex and is also easy to move around and maneuver. Just by applying it on top of your skin and letting it dry down for a couple of minutes, you will be able to create a realistic fake wound on top of your skin!
