Things You Will Need:
- Body makeup
- Sunless tanning lotion
- Eyeliner makeup brush
- Waterproof concealer
- Makeup sponge
- Airbrush leg sprays
1. Applying Sunless Tanning Lotion:
Take a small amount of sunless tanning lotion and spread it over both the legs with your hands. Keep on rubbing gently until all the lotion has completely mixed with the skin and is absorbed. It will take some time for the lotion to dry. Allow it to set and wash your hands well after the application. While choosing a sunless tanning lotion, make sure that you choose a light to medium tan color that looks almost similar to your skin so that the overall impression does not appear fake.
Wear your dress after the lotion has dried completely, so that it does not stain your dress or create messy patches. You can apply the sunless tanning lotion twice a week to maintain the clear look and hide the varicose veins.
2. Using Body Makeup:
Take a body makeup bottle with the shade similar to the skin of your legs. After the lotion has dried completely, it is time to apply the body makeup on the legs using a makeup sponge or fingers. Apply a light layer of body makeup over the complete portion of the leg with varicose veins. For example, if the veins are visible on the lower leg, spread the body makeup evenly over the lower portion of the leg up to the knee. Make sure that the edges of the makeup are properly blended using a dabbing motion so that they perfectly gel with your skin.
3. Applying Waterproof Concealer:
Now, take a thin eyeliner makeup brush and insert it in the bottle of a waterproof concealer. Make sure that the shade of the concealer is a bit lighter than the body makeup. Cover the varicose veins by applying concealer in a thin line.
4. Blending The Concealer:
Just as the body makeup, it is important to blend the concealer properly into the skin. Use the makeup sponge or your finger to dab the concealer lightly so that it blends well with the skin. Make sure the concealer is blended effectively so that you cannot see the varicose veins at all.
5. Aerosol Leg-Spray For Smaller Veins:
In case you have varicose veins that are not prominent at all, you can skip the makeup part and simply use an aerosol leg-spray to cover them. You will find this product sold under the category of airbrush legs. First, spray it on the area with the varicose veins, and gently make smaller circles with your fingers to blend it into the skin. Let it dry well before getting dressed.
So, the next time you feel like wearing a short skirt or a hot pant, do not hesitate. Simply use the above makeup tips to cover the varicose veins and flaunt your beauty under the bright sun.
