How to Cover a Tattoo Using Foundation | Special FX Makeup

This our last step of covering the tattoo. I have with me a beauty blender sponge which
is one of the most amazing miracles in the makeup industry. And I have created a skin tone foundation
that matches hers. It’s important when picking out a foundation
for a tattoo cover that it’s also thick and creamy. The creamier the better. You don’t want liquid makeup. You want something that’s very creamy and
thick. So I’m going to take this sponge. You can use any sponge but I happen to love
the beauty blender. I’m going to stipple a little bit of makeup
on there. So it looks like that and then I’m just going
to start dabbing it over the tattoo concealed area. And this looks like I’m beating her up but
it actually feels really good. Doesn’t it? And then I’m going to take the other side
of the brush and pull the foundation out into her skin. And then we’re going to powder. Moving my brush with powder, taping it out
then powdering the area. Tattoos are actually quite difficult to cover
especially close-up. You can usually do a good job of faking it
from far away. Unless of course you have an airbrush machine,
air compressor and an air gun. You can do some pretty great things with that. And that is how you cover a tattoo.

    I believe that the nearly unnoticable silhouette of the tattoo is because the extra layers powder between corrector, concealer and foundation
