Wigs can looking stunningly natural and flattering. They can also look cheesy and obviously fake. A large factor in the difference between a realistic looking wig and a mop on your head, is the hair part. Wig parts are what give away the secret that you are actually wearing a wig. Camouflage the artificial scalp underneath the wig hair to make it look like your natural scalp. Blending the skin tone of the wig scalp and your hairline makes the wig's hair look like your very own.

Cover your hair with a wig cap and place the wig on your head. Adjust the wig to sit on your head exactly how you want it and secure it with hair clips. Part the hair in your wig to your desired look. Wig parts slightly to the side look more natural than parts in the centre.

Sharpen a white eyeliner pencil to a point. Lightly draw a white line on the parted area of the scalp with the white liner pencil. Make the line thin, and as close to the scalp as possible.

Shake and open the bottle of skin coloured concealer. Dip a thin make-up brush into the make-up -- collecting a small amount of concealer on the tip of the brush. Lightly brush the white liner-covered part with a thin layer of skin coloured concealer.

Wipe the make-up brush off with a paper towel. Dip the clean brush into a small amount of make-up powder that is slightly darker than your skin tone. Brush a thin layer of make-up powder over the part to seal the concealer.

Apply a tiny amount of hair oil to your fingertips. Dab the hair oil on the hair around the part -- combing out any excess make-up or powder that may have got into the hair. Gently comb your wig out.
