I'm talking about a small amount of concealer on his face as he has a spot. It's his first school photo!

dont be rediculous

i have never heard such shit in all my life

Go for it, I was thinking you meant full face, lips and eyes.

Bunch Wed 24-Sep-08 10:48:30

Well I did wonder about mascara cos he has very pale eyelashes.

No. Stick a bit of sudocrem on it instead it will fade it's appearence and clear it up.

Yes your being ridiculus, its only a spot, god you must be vein to be bothered by it

Bunch Wed 24-Sep-08 11:36:22

Ok! Calm down everyone! Doesn't everyone get aggressive!! I was only joking about the mascara but I have already use sudocrem on the spot.

lol. i might, you know. but only a very good quality concealer.

don't bother about concealer, just get it photoshopped on

I would do it. If it is first photo, it will be around for a long time. I had a photo taken at school at about 14yo with a great big bloody spot on my chin. Whenever I look at it I look straight at the spot, it's awful. On my 40th birthday my DP had this photo put on a cake, we had a row, of all the bloody photo's why that one!

Don't some school photographers photoshop them anyway to make them look their best? I'm sure I remember someone posting here about that. You might want to mention it to the photographer if you will be there.
Taking out a spot is easy. I replaced a missing tooth once on a school photo.

Why not, wont hurt him

ComeOVeneer Wed 24-Sep-08 12:51:01

Erm, not sure on this one. However as a child I had my photo taken for a local newspaper, next to a very glamourous Sharon Davies all hair and makeup in a high cut swimsuit. Me in school reg speedo suit with yellow swimming hat and a mahoosive coldsore. It haunts me to this day grin

Our school photographers offer a touch up service. When you get the proof you can mark any imperfections and they will remove them.

GordonTheGopher Wed 24-Sep-08 12:55:28

Yes I would - only because it's for a photo. Just make sure his friends don't find out. How old is he?

Buda Wed 24-Sep-08 13:02:11

They photoshop all the spots out at our school! I know because DS had a bruise on his forehead and a semi-black eye when his photos were done a few years ago and when I brought in the order form I was joking with the school secretary about it and she suggested getting it airbrushed out! So we did. But I still have the 'proof' of what he really looked like that day!

Bunch Wed 24-Sep-08 13:29:51

He's only 4. We've just got back from having it done. I did dab concealer on which took the shin off nicely but I have to say the red lipstick looked great!

Buda Wed 24-Sep-08 13:50:47

Red lipstick!

Surely pink?? For his feminine side? grin

Hope the lippie matched the nailpolish wink

alicet Wed 24-Sep-08 14:13:51

We had some professional pics done recently and ds2 (who is nearly 1, crawling and cruising, and desperate to walk so constantly falling over and bruising himself) had 2 big bruises on his forehead! Have to say I was tempted but didn't in the end.

YANBU though

My son had a mark on his polo top sleeve in his school photo. The photographer wanted £40 to remove it. <faints>

cheesesarnie Wed 24-Sep-08 14:18:23

next step is to cover him in fake tan like dawn from eastenders.i wouldnt want to start going down that road.

persionaly i wouldnt.its only a spot-hes 4.i'll bet he looks cute with or without(just guessing but most 4 year old boys are cute)
