    I don't think make up is going to cover up the stretch marks.. Tried Vitamin E oil, Bio Oil? I know Bio Oil "fades" the look of them. I tried it but I didn't use it 3x a day like it recommended so I didn't notice a huge difference. I also lost weight so..it kinda well concealed?

    Mederma *might* help.

    Makeup can cover it to a certain extent but since stretch marks aren't flat, you may still see it.
    The only way to effectively get rid of stretch marks: Laser surgery.

    Is this for the beach or something? Could just wear a cute boyshort swimsuit bottom.

    From personal experience, tanning lotion will make the white stretch marks more visible. A salon tan might be able to cover it. That, or just some heavy duty concealer with powder on top. I'm sure judges won't be close enough to see the stretch marks as well as you looking at yourself in the mirror.

    stretch marks are actually more of a permanent thing...you want to get rid of them you got to laser them off...once it's white ...basically scarred fo lyfe....with creams you might want to invest in strivectin...or products for expectant mothers...starting now you should prevent future ones by applying lotion on your body (maybe after a bath/shower) so your skin is more elastic and won't scar as much....you should try a shimmer type of cream...maybe mix a little foundation and lotion where you have it and buff it in lightly (no painting...buffing), let it set and maybe powder a tad and then contour your legs after (highlighting the top of the legs)

    I've tried Bio Oil and honestly, I felt like it did nothing much to my stretch marks. If you have a lot of time before your pageant, try exfoliating then applying cocoa/shea butter afterwards.

    You really can't get rid of stretch marks if they are already white. All you can do to make them less visible for your pageant is try to cover them as well as possible with foundation.  Hopefully the camera man won't be zooming in too much.

    There is a cream I got from TheseStretchmarks.com (I think it was Skinderma) that worked well for me. If the marks are to where you can feel them, shea butter will smooth them out, and if they are dark, then cocoa butter will lighten them. If they are light... I honestly don't know what helps, but that site has tons of information about stretch marks in general. There is an article specifically about stretch marks on the butt too.

    UPDATE:
    Correction... it was Skinception, not skinderma.
