Tomo I have a doctors appt and a meeting at my boys school with their teacher. I want to cover up these ugly freaking bite marks they look so trashy I it's been almost a week and they are still visible. I have a bruise on the side of my eye my SO was throwing me the remote and it hit in the face on accident so I want to cover that up.

His sister said to use toothpaste to rub the bruise out but I don't know how well that will work plus I dont want toothpaste anywhere near my eye.

I did try to cover it with makeup today and you can see a dark spot where the bruise is at

Since it already happened, you can only use makeup.
However, if you rub an area that you think will leave a bruise, rub that area for a few minutes following a possible bruise injury. (This is for smaller type, low impact bruises) Worked every time for me.

Don't worry about it then. Are you afraid the doctor might say something?

Why are you hiding abuse?  Why are you putting up with it?
