Go Mineral

You may use mineral based coverup makeup on your eyes. Avoid any of the skin entry points.

Make up after DST

I would avoid using makeup until the incisions are water tight. The incisions with the DST are very small but to be safe wait 1 week

Concealing bruise with makeup prior to one week after asian blepharoplasty

You definitely want to wait to avoid tatooing your incision and to prevent infection with applying make up to a raw incision. Just be patient it will heal fast but consult your doctor first before doing this.

There is a risk that pigments from your concealer or makeup can get into your incision and remain under the skin causing a tattoo effect. You should wait a few days.
