use opposite eyeshadow- green to cover red- yellow to cover purple etc. I hit my calf on our evil coffee table before prom in high school and i covered it like that.

Liquid concealers tend to work better than creams; liquids are more malleable and don’t clump.

Most bruises will be bluish-red in the beginning.  To cover these, with your fingers, dab a yellow-based concealer around the bruise. Blend outward, allowing some of the concealer to go beyond the afflicted area. When blending is finished, the area should have a flat, natural appearance. When the bruise is covered, let it set. Next dab concealer that matches your skin tone over the area and let it set.

For brownish-yellow bruises (ones that have been there a while), a light green-based concealer works best.

I think you can by concealers like that too (vistagirls suggestion with eyeshadow) Since eyeshadow tends to be shiny, even the matte ones. I would look for a concealer in the opposite color (opposite on color wheel) that would probably be your best bet. The tanner should help also.

I’d look around at Sephora to find a concealor made to cover tattoos.

depends on the color of the bruise, just think complimentary colors. If it’s BLUE/PURPLE/Greenish color, Orange/Yellow/Reds would be the first color to lay on, and then a color that matches your skin type.

creams are heavier=more coverage. i’d recommend sticking with cream concealers.  good luck!!

It’s kinda pricey, but Benefit’s Erase Paste works amazingly well.  I pretty much bruise if someone looks at me funny,so it’s a lifesaver. My trusty little pot of the stuff effectively covered up a good sized (5×5) tattoo of one of my coworkers at a recent holiday party that she didn’t realize was not so informal.  A little bit goes a very long way.
