​2. Best W​aterproof Tattoo Coverup Makeup

M.A.C Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer

Worried about slipping and sliding? Fear not because M.A.C’s Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer is totally water-proof, making it ideal for resisting sweat and tears that often accompany the wedding day.

The silica in this concealer’s formulation will help absorb excess oils in your skin, ensuring that the coverage for your tattoo will stay put. If you have a very dark tattoo, you might want to consider layering this concealer with some M.A.C Studio Finish Skin Corrector in Pure Orange, to help cancel out any black and blue ink.

​3. Covering up Larger Tattoos

Covering up a large tattoo can be a mammoth task if you’re not using the right makeup. Dermablend’s Leg and Body Cover comes to the rescue with a formula that is highly pigmented and suitable for long-wear. This foundation is easy to apply and has the ability to keep you and your tattoo protected against the sun since it contains a dash of SPF.

​4. Best Tattoo Cover Up for Sensitive Skin 

Cover FX Cream Concealer

You know all too well how hard it can be to find the perfect foundation for your sensitive skin. Cover FX is a Canadian brand (eh!), which has become famous due to the fact that their formulations contain none of the “inflammatory five” - ​fragrances, gluten, parabens, mineral oils, and talc.

It’s a perfect solution for covering your tattoo if you have sensitive skin, and the fact that it comes available in a wide range of shades that all provide full coverage makes the deal even sweeter.


​5. Tattoo Coverup for Oily Skin

Who better to trust with covering up tattoos than a tattoo artist herself?

Kat Von D’s Lock-It Concealer is smear-proof and oil free, making it a good choice for brides-to-be that have oily skin, but still want to cover up their tattoos. There were mixed reviews on Amazon, with some customers loving the product while others wished it was a bit thicker.

If you need more coverage (for those extra dark tattoos) then simply apply one layer, allow it to dry, and build up the coverage as needed by applying more layers.

We love Benefit’s Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer because it has a creamy texture and delivers a smooth, natural finish. It’s great for covering up tattoos on your wrist (which is where creasing can be a problem at times).

To ensure you’re applying the product correctly, be sure to warm it up against the back of your hand!
