We all know tattoos are awesome, but sometimes you need to cover your tattoos. Weather it be a job interview, your grandma’s 93rd birthday, or a court appearance. Sometimes you just have to cover your tattoos.
We all know that a long sleeve shirt can work wonders but sometimes your tattoos aren’t so easy to cover.
There are many over the counter tattoo concealer creams on the market. These products work surprisingly well to hide your tattoos, but are also rather costly for the top quality ones. A cheaper and more natural looking way to conceal your tattoos is using average cosmetic products.
How To Cover Your Tattoos Using Makeup
Before you start, you’re going to need supplies. Here’s the list.
Small Makeup Brush
Meduim Makeup Brush
Fluffy Bronzer Brush
Any Red Lipstick
Warm Tone Concealer
Cool Tone Concealer
Start by covering the entire tattoo with a thin layers of red lipstick until the tattoo is no longer visible. Let the lipstick dry completely.
Next, you will take your brush and cover the lipstick with your cool tone concealer. You want to completely cover the red lipstick. At this point the tattoo should not be visible. Let the concealer dry completely.
Now you will need to take your warm tone concealer and add a thin layer to the already covered tattoo. Your warm tone concealer should match your skin tone exactly. The closer your warm tone is to your natural skin tone, the less obvious the cover up will be. Let the concealer dry completely.
Finally, take your fluffy bronzer brush and lightly dab translucent powder on top of the concealer. This will take the shine off the cover up and also help to blend it in to your skin. That’s it. At this point your tattoo should be completely covered up.
If you are covering a large tattoo, it helps to work in sections to achieve a more even blend.
This method of covering your tattoo is much cheaper than buying top of the line tattoo cover up cream. It can also produce a much more natural look if you take the time to select your makeup tones properly.
