How to Cover a Tattoo
When it comes to covering a tattoo, using more product doesn’t mean better results. You’re much better off choosing the right products and using them carefully.
Start off by using an orange or red colour-corrector to neutralise the green and blue undertones in a tattoo. If you have fair skin, stick to orange shades. If you have a deep skin tone, we recommend a red.

Once you’ve colour-corrected, find your base makeup to cover tattoos. These foundations and concealers are highly pigmented and long-lasting. They blend seamlessly into your skin to cover marks without looking cakey or unnatural.
Apply your foundation and then set it in place with either a powder or a setting spray to hold the look.
