Commonly found on the legs, spider veins may also develop on the face as a result of valve ruptures within the veins close to the skin. Injury, sun exposure, hormone fluctuations, age, obesity and pregnancy are often the cause of such ruptures, according to Womens Health.gov. If you prefer to forgo cosmetic surgery for a less invasive way to hide the spider veins on your face, consider a makeup concealer specifically designed for the task.

Step 1

Visit a pharmacy or cosmetic counter at a department store. Choose a camouflage cream concealer that matches your skin tone. Camouflage cream concealers, designed for scars, burns, veins and uneven skin tones, are thicker than regular concealers and usually waterproof.

Step 2

Start with a clean slate. Cleanse your face as you normally would. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Wash your hands to help prevent the transfer of dirt and bacteria to the skin of your face.

Step 3

Apply just enough camouflage cream to a cosmetic sponge to cover your spider veins. Lightly rub the sponge over the camouflage cream to accomplish this.

Step 4

Dab your spider veins with the cosmetic sponge, lightly spreading the concealer over your skin. Continue dabbing until the spider veins are no longer visible.

Step 5

Dust your face with a translucent powder using a cosmetic brush or puff. The powder will set the concealer and give your skin an even appearance.

Step 6

Remove the camouflage cream concealer every night before bed. Reapply the concealer each morning before you head outdoors.
