How To: Cover a Tattoo

Below are ways to cover a tattoo!

  • Always start with a clean surface, exfoliate with a loofah or even better a scrub like LANARI Skincare’s BEST EVER Sugar Scrub!
  • When you’re trying to build coverage, your hands do not allow easily buildable coverage because they absorb a lot of the product. Use a foundation brush (Makeup Forever 30N HD Brush $39).
  • Start with a thick foundation (depending on the size of what you are trying to cover up), apply in layers until the tattoo is no longer visible. An alternative to foundation is full coverage concealer, the best concealer is Makeup Forever Full Cover, industrial strength and full coverage; it also comes in a array of shades for a correct color match. If your foundation or concealer still is not covering completely, try DermaBlend Cosmetics.
  • Once the tattoo is covered completely, don’t pack powder on. Dust lightly with a translucent setting powder (Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder) to help it stay on your skin and not end up on your clothes.
