Best way to touch up scraped bumper?

Well my front bumper from the lowest line to wear it starts curving under the car, had a dinner date last night with a nice yellow curb. It left some scrapes and yellow paint streaks on the bumper :( What's the best way of going about fixing it the best possible looks wise, short of replacing the whole bumper? The car is Polar White. I'm guessing some fine sandpaper while being applied very easily could take off some of the yellow paint streaks.

I'd start by rubbing with some mineral spirits. I got some splashed yellow traffic paint from my wife driving over a not-yet-dry painted stripe on a road off of the fenders of my minivan off that way.

Use McGuires scratch remover. It comes in a wide black tube. Go easy and the yellow line should rub off and the scrape will be minimized to it's greatest extent. You may end up with no damage.

along with that if you have any deep scratches then a high quality touch up ball point style pen to fill in, then lightly sand and apply light coating of clear.
