Concealing a tattoo with makeup
Step 1: Get your skin clean and ready. Clean your tattooed skin area with a wipe or some facial wash to get rid of dirt and to make the skin ready to apply makeup.
Step 2: Apply a light concealer over the tattoo: From the tattoo cover up makeup kit, use the liquid or cream concealer that is several shades lighter than your normal skin tone to apply to your skin. Try to blot the concealer on your skin instead of rubbing it. It is more effective and quicker. When your tattoo is covered in an even layer of concealer, let it be there for some minute to dry up. At this stage the tattoo is still visible.
Step 3: The next step is to use foundation to apply over the concealer. Choose the foundation that matches with your skin tone to get better effect. Once the tattoo is fully covered, wait 1 minute for the foundation to dry. Or you can use liquid or cream foundation with the help of a sponge or a brush. At this stage the tattoo is entirely covered in makeup and hidden from view.
Step 4: In order to make the makeup more visually effective, apply translucent powder to the skin with a large powder brush. This make your skin look normal.
Step 5: Apply some hairspray onto the skin and allow it to dry before wearing clothes. This helps to make sure the tattoo cover up makeup stays strong and intact against rubbing onto clothes or sweat.
Step 6: Give your makeup a try. Wear clothes on and pretend you are attending a meeting or an interview, just to see if the tattoo is totally covered or if it is durable enough to last throughout the event.
If you need if you need quick solutions cover the tattoo with clothing for a quick fix. Wrist or neck tattoos you can cover with jewelry.
Moreover if you’re looking for a more permanent solution, you may want to completely remove the tattoo after consulting with a dermatologist. If you’re unhappy with the tattoo that you have, you can cover it up with another tattoo. But keep in mind that the cover-up tattoo will likely have to be larger and darker than the initial tattoo.
