Hide Your Tattoos

While your ink is totally cool, you still might want to cover it up before Great Aunt Edna's 95th birthday soiree. Use an eye shadow the color of your skin's undertone on top of your tattoo before applying foundation for a surprisingly smooth complexion. We're not going to lie — this process can be pretty time consuming and would be best for little pieces of art. First, apply a primer to the area; after, smooth a light coat of foundation on top to help lighten the tattoo's appearance. Protect this step with a coat of hair spray (seriously!). Once that's dried, use a patting motion to heavily apply your shadow on the tattoo. Add another coat of hair spray, and then layer full-coverage foundation on top. Set with more hair spray, and attend your family party without fear of snide comments.
