Step 1 – Check the area

What you need to do first is make sure that the tattooed area is hair-free. If your tattoo is located on a place with visible hair, you should consider shaving the area, in order to make the concealing more effective.

Step 2 – Moisturize

Moisturizing is a vital step in further concealment of the tattoo. This Youtuber uses a simple face moisturizer, but you can use any other moisturizer.

Step 3 – Create a base

By applying a thin layer of liquid foundation, you can easily create the base needed to conceal your tattoo. Don’t be surprised if the tattoo isn’t fully covered after this step. The foundation just serves as a primer.

Step 4 – Apply eye shadow

As funny as it seems, this step involves using an eye shadow that matches your skin color. If you have a more orange skin tone, use an orange shadow. If your skin is a little bit more rosy, use a pink shadow. Apply eye shadow onto the tattooed area, by using a makeup sponge.

Step 5 – Coat the area of your tattoo

Once you’ve finished step 4, use hairspray to coat the area. You shouldn’t avoid this step, because you need to help the eye shadow stay put, and prepare the tattoo for the following step.

Step 8 – Repetition

By repeating steps 4-6, the tattooed area is further concealed. What you need to do next is blend the outside edges, but this time, use your finger, rather than a makeup sponge.

Step 11 – Almost done!

Finally, the last step is to use powder foundation in order to seal in the concealer. By using a large brush, dust on the powder foundation on the ink.
