    If it's a scab you won't really be able to cover it up until the scab falls off! x

    Best thing to do is leave it alone and give it time to heal. Generally, putting makeup on it only makes it worse and inflammed, but I know how annoying it is. I used to get bad spots but couldn't help but cover them in makeup. I guess you just need to get yourself some good foundation (I like the bourjous one, or max factor, clinique etc) and cover them as good as you can with that, then put powder on top (rimmel). It's the best way I can think of covering them. But still, it's always best left to the air to heal.

    wash and moisturise your face every night
    don't pick at them
    tea tree oil (and I've heard toothpaste ?) dries them out
    use concealer and / or foundation to cover them up

    I don't even bother. Just colour it in with a felt tip.

    If it's scabbed up, then you ought to leave it to heal.

    You buy a pistol.

    Put the tip of it to your nose and shoot it off

    THEN

    People are too worried about the fact you're missing half a nose to care that you have a small scab

    Be careful with tea tree oil; it's easy to over do it, and if you do your skin goes red and sore. I've said it before, but thoroughly wash with carbolic soap and hot water until your skin squeaks, and then rinse with very cold water. Spots'll be gone within a day or two.

    I had a scab under my chin after New Year's. It went off really quickly after I bough a fresh face mask called The Sacred Truth and a moisturiser called Skin Drink from Lush, both very nourishing and moisturising.

    There's a particular type of concealer thats excellent. I think it may be a Max Factor one, but i'm not 100%. It specialises in covering tattoos etc. However, it isss expensive plus very thick, so can imagine it would take it longer to heal if you used it.

    Just leave it until it heals I'd say.

    first you need to put foundation on it, then the concealer. After this, if you have some pressed powder and a small make-up brush, dab some of this onto it and it will help to blend in the concealer and make it look more natural.

    Foundation, then concealer, then mineral foundation, then powder.

    Sounds a lot I know, but it always works, I swear. Its the mineral foundation thats really good at covering spots, I think its better than concealer. I use a cheap one from Collection 2000, its really good though.
