I have to say, I’ve never been really big on Dermablend as a tattoo cover. In my experience, it cracks and, worse, it darkens over the course of several hours, leaving whatever tattoo you covered looking like a big bruise just starting to form and leading total strangers to ask me if my boyfriend hits me. But then, I haven’t tried the new tattoo primer, which is specifically for tats. And of course, I’ve never tried it with a team of three makeup artists.
In general, however, for the money my vote goes to Revlon Colorstay base and a solid powder coat after. There was a time when I had to cover my tats regularly for work (funny, considering some of the things I didn’t have to cover for that job), and it did a fine job without leading to too many awkward questions.
