Variety is the spice of life and the world would be boring if everyone looked the same. This is why it’s amazing that there are people in our world who aren’t afraid to be different. Many people like to sport an alternative appearance and proudly sport bold hair colors, piercings and tattoos.
If you like the alternative look, then you’re probably not ashamed to stand out in a crowd. However, there might be some moments in your life where you need to tone down your look. Perhaps you’re visiting relatives who are more traditional or attending a religious wedding. Whatever the case may be, here are some tips on how to tone down your alternative look for a special event.
Cover Your Tattoos
There are two ways to cover tattoos. The first is the obvious method, which is to wear clothes that completely cover your any inked areas. However, if it’s the middle of summer and the weather is scorching, this might not be an option. Tattoos can be covered by applying multiple layers of concealer and then sealing it all in with a layer of translucent powder. There are many video tutorials online that show you how to effectively cover your tattoos using makeup.
Take Out Your Piercings
One of the best ways to tone down your look is by removing your piercings. However, there’s a risk that the holes could close if you remove your jewelry for too long. This is why invisible jewelry, such as retainer nose rings, can be so useful. Invisible jewelry is made of clear plastic. The idea is to look like you’re wearing no jewelry whatsoever while still keeping your piercings open. It’s a good idea to keep a retainer nose ring handy whenever you want to hide your piercing.
It’s great to stand out in a crowd, but once in a while you might need to blend in. Follow these tips whenever you need to fake a more conservative appearance.
