You love your tattoo. You spent long, agonizing hours deciding what to get, where to get it, and if you would still be happy with in 10 years. Then you laid down the cash, endured the needle, and have carefully cared for and proudly shown it off.
But even though you are truly happy with your tatt, body art may not be appropriate in every situation. If you need to look tatt-free for your wedding, or to go to a friend’s wedding, just follow these simple tips. Remember to always do a trial run of your preferred method BEFORE the wedding!
Clean the tattooed area and apply a light concealer that is several shades lighter than your natural skin tone. Use a stippling brush or makeup sponge to apply concealer, and dab or blot the concealer onto the skin. Do not rub.
Next, choose a foundation that perfectly matches your skin tone. Spray works best, but liquid or cream will work, too. Spray or use a makeup sponge or stippling brush to apply, using a blotting technique. Use fingers to smooth the top layer and blend the edges.
Use a large powder brush to apply a translucent powder next, then spritz with hairspray to set the coverage and prevent makeup from rubbing off. Allow the entire area to dry before touching or covering with clothing.
