How To Tuesday: Tattoo Coverup

This weekend I got a new tattoo. And this one is in a more viewable place than my other one, and my brother...well he had a few choice things to say:

brother: you don't know what kind of wedding dress you're going to wear one day! It could show!
me: yes, it could. but if I don't want it to, I'll just cover it up.
brother: with what?
me: Jane Iredale makeup covers tattoos.
brother: oh.

So brother, this tutorial is to show you, that it can indeed be done.

But just a little tip: covering tattoos with makeup is not really for daily use. It's really for pictures or one day things, like job interviews or weddings. Because as you can see in the picture above, you can still see it slightly if you look close. But from a regular distance you can't tell at all.

Be ready to be amazed.

What you'll need:

  1. Jane Iredale Disappear
  2. Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Powder 
  3. Jane Iredale spritzer of your choice

Step 1: Disappear

You want to apply it pretty heavily. Really cake it on. Blend it out, then let it dry completely before next step

Step 2: Pressed Powder

Pat the pressed powder on, blending out. Then spritz.

Step 3: Repeat, repeat

It takes a couple of layers to get the desired coverage. I think we did 4 layers on Stephanie's tattoo. Just make sure to let each layer dry completely before moving on to the next one.

no tattoo can be seen!


just in case you needed to see it again.


  1. Glamoflage by hard candy works much better to cover up tattoos!!

  2. Kat Von D's CoverUp Is The Best....Trust Me, I'm Heavily Tattooed, Even Though I Never Cover Mine, I Had To Try It. Just A Dab Was All It Took.

  3. How long will this last? Is it water resistant ?

  4. sally hansen air brushed legs works too! just spray in layers but be patient s each layer dries!

  5. So weird! I have the exact same tattoo just different colors! I've never seen anyone else with the same thing :)

  6. Wow. This was great. I have the ugliest legs ever thanks to veins. I wanted to wear a shorter wedding dress ( just above my knees) I tried this and it covered soooooooo well. Plus I have 13 tattoos, 2 of which are visable. Sometimes it helps to cover when looking for work. Thanks , you killed to of my birds with one stone.
