Instructions

  1. 1

    Apply an aloe vera gel or lotion to the area three to four times a day until the area has healed. This healing aid comes from the aloe vera plant and has been used to treat minor burns and other non-serious wounds, according to the Mayo Clinic . Helping the area to heal will make the visible burn less conspicuous as time passes.

  2. 2

    Apply a thin layer of liquid foundation make-up to the area. You might want to use a type of foundation that is formulated for sensitive skin in order to reduce the likelihood of irritation. Dab the foundation on gently with a soft make-up sponge.

  3. 3

    Apply neutral eye shadow colours and a soft eyeliner and mascara colour rather than jet black. Using neutral colours on the eyes will draw less attention to the area.

  4. 4

    Apply a bolder lipstick colour and use a tone of blush that is appropriate for your skin tone. Enhancing other areas of the face, such as the lips, will draw attention away from the eyes.

Tips and warnings

  • If you feel any irritation after applying a product to the burnt area, wash the product off immediately with cool water. If the area doesn't seem to be healing after a few days or the burn is obviously severe from the beginning, see a physician.
