Hey guys,

I'm currently working on a Rey cosplay and I'm wondering what do you use to conceal your tattoos?

I am heavily tattooed and I know that wouldn't fly on my submission.

I've tried dermablend but their closest color was too yellow for my skin (I am too pink).

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hello! I have never tried concealing tattoos but I do have some suggestions that might help. I am surprised that Dermablend didn't work since many consider it the holy grail of full coverage.

Bottom line is that you are looking for a full coverage, long-lasting makeup that won't rub off on your costume or someone who hugs/brushes against you during a troop. From how I see it you have two options, cosmetic makeup or theatrical makeup. The trend these days with beauty cosmetics is matte and long wearing, so there are lots of new products that do just that! Here is an article that includes several brands that I know are legit, like Benefit and Make Up Forever http://www.totalbeauty.com/content/slideshows/tattoo-concealers-140924

As for theatrical makeup, you could explore the foundation/concealer options by Ben Nye, Graftobian or Mehron.

https://www.mehron.com/tattoo-cover/

I would highly recommend exploring the theatrical makeup side of things first since that stuff is made to last way longer than beauty makeup by default. I would also invest in a good setting spray like Ben Nye's Final Seal to lock everything in place. https://www.amazon.com/Final-Seal-Matte-Makeup-Sealer/dp/B005MZ4A7C

Good Luck, and I hope this helps! It can be hard to look past the most popular brand to other alternatives, so I hope you find a product that fits your needs. Don't be afraid to blend some of these products together for the perfect color match, too!

Thank you SO much for the suggestions! I was actually looking at Mehron concealer, it might actually work.
