As a model I sometimes have to cover tattoos for gigs. This is a method I’ve found that is fairly easy and covers tattoos well enough so that they don’t need to be photoshopped out.
This method uses the Narrative Cosmetics Flesh Tone Alcohol Activated Palette which features 12 colors including light flesh, fair, beige, warm, hazelnut, chocolate, vein, olive, soft yellow, peach, deep blush, and capillary.
The top row skin tones can be made cooler or warmer using the adjuster colors on the bottom row to get a more exact match.
To use the palette you put about 1-3 drops of the activator liquid into the color pan and mix them together. You can make it more or less pigmented depending on how much activator you add. Adding more layers of sheer color on your skin will give it more realistic and seamless coverage.
However if you want a truly waterproof method you should use only the alcohol activated palette, however this one is easier as it uses concealer you already own as the final matching step. It can be a bit tricky to mix colors to get your exact skin tone match using just the palette.
