So right here i have to apologize because i went out of order (when i did the makeup) so do this step before the previous without the spray (if you did the steps exactly in order don't fret you'll still be fine)

Take a good amount of scar  tissue wax and roll into a worm about and a 1/4 inch wide.

If you whited your face before the wax part just wipe of area to be applied with damp paper towel and dry thoroughly, if not you can ignore this step.

*note: leave about a cm. distance between the scar and the edge of your lips

brush a line of spirit gum on the spot where the slug of wax will be put

immediately following applying the spirit gum put the wax slug on and press to cheek making sure to leave highest point lengthwise of the slug on center line of itself (like an elongated pyramidish) see pics it'll make more sense

blend into skin as shown still mostly keeping the pyramidish shape(i have several different techniques that i used)
*the scar tissue wax is a little sticky that's why i have the comb to help

once blended how you like it DO STEP 6 the base coating so you don't have to go back like i did and unnecessarily retrace your steps and reapply the hairspray to cover the scars and make them blend with my skin completely

you can now remove the duct tape and reveal the seamless finish it left(it's not seamless in the movie but i thought it looks better like this) oh and don't forget you can remove unwanted areas of the hairspray with a damp paper towel or cloth

*tip: remember the scars on ledger are not symmetrical and you can shape them as to how you want them and what you think will look best
