How To Coverup Tattoos for Your Wedding
Q: My wedding is coming up and my wedding dress dips down and shows my black and grey tattoo. I would like to cover it up for the day but not ruin my wedding dress. Any ideas on what products work the best?
Q: I’m a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding and she asked if I could cover up my tattoos. Any ideas on what I can use?
If that seems like too much work, here’s a few products that may be worth you looking into:
Kat Von D is known for her tattoo skills, TV persona and her awesome makeup. Fans of her products swear by them. Some recommend using the Lock It concealer and powder with this foundation for coverage and staying power. Available at major beauty stores like Sephora or online.
According to this products description, it’s a heavy duty, highly pigmented, blendable concealer that provides the ultimate coverage. Create a flawless surface by covering birth marks, freckles, dark circles and even tattoos! Available in many shades, available in stores and online.
Dermablend is known for it’s coverage. Available in creams, sticks, concealers, powders … if you perfer a specific consistency, they make it. It’s no more expensive than other high end foundations and boasts 16 hour wear.
I happen to love It Cosmetics and this concealer. Don’t only use it under eyes. It covers my wrist tattoo, when combined with the It Celebration foundation. It’s also waterproof so its a win-win. Available online and in major cosmetics stores.
A light pink pencil that counteracts the dark blue and black ink of tattoos for serious concealing power. Available in Sephora, major cosmetics chains and online.
Makeup Forever gets rave reviews from many people, even Kim Kardashian. It’s designed to cover major imperfections like scars, hyperpigmentation, major discoloration, burns, and tattoos. Customer reviews say it doesn’t move, it’s waterproof and sticks like glue. Sounds great to cover tattoos, but I’m not sure I want to use something that sticks like glue under my eyes.
Bottom line: From my own experience in covering my tattoos, you robably will need several steps to get full coverage, but your results may vary. You may find one product covers all in one step, where as other products may take multiple steps and different products to get the desired effect. It also depends on your tattoo and skin. So many variables!
