A Birthmark or a Tatoo

What you need: Body cover cream + fine-tip makeup brush + latex sponge.

What to do: Because they’re often darkly pigmented, “birthmarks and tattoos usually require a heavier body-coverage product,” says Sarah Lucero, a celebrity makeup artist for Stila Cosmetics, in Los Angeles. “For speed, you can apply it all over the mark with your finger,” she says. “If any parts require extra coverage, you can go over them again with the brush once the first application dries.” Choose a color that matches the surrounding skin, and blend well with your finger or a latex sponge. (A sponge is sometimes better for thoroughly blending the edges of such thick makeup.)
