    Before you apply any of the makeup products to cover up tan lines, put the sunblock on. The sunblock will avoid further skin damage from ultraviolet radiations even if you go out in the open.

    Using a small makeup brush, apply a layer of makeup concealer to the tan lines. Tan lines would be easy to cover up if you apply a thick concealer layer. Make sure that the colour of the concealer matches the colour of your tan lines.

    Now you need to blend the concealer with the rest of your skin or else it will look out of place. Use powdered bronzer for the job. Apply it over the top of the tan lines using a makeup brush. Use a bronzer which has shimmer added to it because the shimmer will reflect light, effectively making it difficult to notice the tan lines.

    For a finishing touch, use translucent body powder. Dust it over and around the tan lines using a large makeup brush or a powder puff. The powder prevents makeup from rubbing off on your clothes.
