how can I cover up third degree burn on my face ... is there any kind of makeup I can use or anything it's a pinkish color on my jaw line

If you had third degree burns then you need to discuss that with the doctor that's been treating them, because the makeup could irritate that or cause infection.

If the doctor gives the okay, you want to find a concealer compact that has green or blue-green in it. The green will eliminate the pink, like using a pink concealer will cover the blue of under-eye circles. But anything you get, use something hypoallergenic.

Ahh okay. Yes green concealer is very commonly used to cover pink scars. Use a sponge and dab it on lightly, then dab flesh colored concealer on top and then makeup as normal. It may take a little practice. White concealer is also good to have.

LOL neither am I, I rarely use it. The only one I tried is Lancome, it had great coverage, four colors in the palette but I haven't been able to find it again. Just make sure it's solid, not a liquid concealer.

you can use aloe vera gel. you can buy it at pharmacy. but make sure to keep it refrigerated cold. also use cold towels with it. I won' heal up right away but will lower the burning feels.
