Makeup Tips to Cover Your Tattoo!: Makeup Tips to Cover Your Tattoo! PowerPoint Presentation: Your big day or special event has arrived and for a variety of reasons, you have decided that you want to cover your tattoo. You have seen the tattoo cover-up kits sold online, but do they really work? What about airbrush makeup? What is the best method to cover a tattoo? Questions to keep in mind when selecting the best method to cover your tattoo: PowerPoint Presentation: If someone hugs you, will they come in contact with the covered area? Will your clothing come in contact with the covered area? Tattoo Lightener : Click to add text Tattoo Lightener If you have about seven to ten months and want to lighten your tattoo for the best cover-up, considering using a product like Tattoo Off. Tattoo Off is designed to lighten your tattoo by penetrating your skin and breaking down the ink over time. Camouflage Cosmetics & Tattoo Cover-up Kits : Camouflage Cosmetics & Tattoo Cover-up Kits There are a variety of corrective and camouflage cosmetics on the market (e.g. Tattoo Camo, Smart Cover, Dermablend, Cinema Secrets, Ben Nye to name a few) that are designed to be smudge-resistant, water-proof, and non-greasy. These types of camouflage cosmetics are designed to "cover", "conceal", and are often used to create special effects. Camouflage or corrective cosmetics usually have a creamy texture and may require the use of a setting powder depending upon the brand. PowerPoint Presentation: OK, let's be frank. It's make-up. Yes, there are some brands that I like better than others ( e.g. Tattoo Camo and Cinema Secrets), but bottom line, a cream is being used to cover an area on your skin. Depending upon the oiliness of your skin, perspiration, and humidity, the covered area may smudge or smear. Therefore, if your dress or someone will come in contact with the covered area, I strongly suggest airbrush make-up vs. the use of a camouflage cosmetic to cover your tattoo. Color Matching : Color Matching One of the biggest challenges I hear when selecting cosmetics to cover a tattoo is "how do you find the right color?" I suggest choosing two to three different shades that most closely match your skin tone (light, medium, dark). Use a blend of these shades to create your perfect match. Most of us have unevenness in our skin tone, so you will need a combination of these shades to create a tone that appears realistic. Are cover-up creams easy to use? : Are cover-up creams easy to use? The majority of cream camouflage products offer online video tutorials that will show you how to apply their product. Regardless of the product you choose, always remember to: wax or shave the area to be covered; unless the product instructions tell you to, do not apply a moisturizer prior to make-up application; choose two to three shades that most closely match your skin tone (light, medium, dark); this will enable you to blend the shades to better match your skin tone; use a cosmetic wedge to apply the make-up in thin layers; use a stippling motion, not a stoking motion. Advantages of Airbrush Make-up to Cover a Tattoo : Advantages of Airbrush Make-up to Cover a Tattoo Airbrush foundations are traditionally high in coverage, but thin in texture. Because the makeup is dispensed in micro-fine layers with an airbrush versus a make-up brush or cosmetic sponge, the results appear more natural and sheer. Typically, to achieve optimal tattoo coverage, an alcohol-based or silicone based airbrush make-up is used. PowerPoint Presentation: Recources:!&id=6257394
