Now that your face puts the best face forward, you want to show it off with a brilliant makeup job and tan. While you can apply makeup one to two weeks post-facelift surgery, sun exposure isn't recommended. The scarring may be discolored anyway, so you might actually want to apply creams that lighten your scars.
If you're African-American and have beautiful golden color anyway, your scarring may be darker than your normal skin, and topical creams or skin resurfacing after a facelift or mini face lift can help. As with most swelling from surgery, ice and elevation are recommended over cosmetics. Spray tanning isn't. Wait a month, or six just to be safe. Yes, you're beautiful, yes, you're fabulous, and you want to keep it that way. Don't try to improve yourself all at once--savor the changes as they happen.
