You got bruises, scars, freckles and veins coming out of your legs and stops you from wearing miniskirts, shorts and bikinis? Well you have to thank leg makeup because it allows you again to go out in public with your legs off.
Makeup is not only applied on the face but also on legs. Its purpose is the same with face makeup. Its texture is thicker than the traditional concealer and foundation we put on our face. It hides scars, tattoos, veins, bruises, birthmarks and even your age, and the most important one; it will make your legs look smooth, flawless and perfect. It is made to be applied on different body areas, arms, stomach, back and the legs. With leg makeup, it ceased your longs pants outfit throughout the year, you don’t have to hide your legs with everyone, and you’ll have the confidence to walk in public showing your beautiful and perfect legs.
How to do the leg makeup?Just like putting makeup on face, it has to be smooth. Moisturizer is to face as shaver is to legs. Your legs must be smooth as possible before starting the makeup process. So, shave, exfoliate and moisturize your legs. You must consider this tip: if you have scars, veins and raised impurities, it is recommended to apply primer that is in a gel or cram form to help out even the imperfections. Next, apply the body makeup. It works the same with face foundation. But, when you apply it, don’t be tempted to use your fingertips when blending it. Fingertips have natural oils which makes it harder for the makeup to blend well. Instead, use sponge when blending the makeup in your skin. Preferably, use the latex type and have that natural leg makeup finish. If you’re not satisfied with the coverage of the body makeup, you may put on concealer.
Remember to use brush when blending. It’s much better if the amount of concealer would be the same with the size that you want to cover up. The last thing you would do is to finish your work with a dusting of powder on your leg. It may sound a bit odd but it works the best. Finishing any makeup work with a dusting of powder helps makeup to stay longer on skin and helps it from smudging and staining your clothes. Helpful tip: let your makeup dry completely and totally before putting on your clothes. It saves your makeup from being ruined.
Tips for keeps
You’ll be needing makeup brushes when you do your leg makeup. These brushes must be used in blending. DON’T USE FINGERTIPS.
Use smaller brushes to cover small scars while bigger brush hides larger scar.
A translucent type of powder is suggested to use as finishing.
Hygiene. Hygiene. Hygiene. Keep your tools clean all the time. Wash it every after use.
Almost all body makeup is in cream form, however, you can also find airbrush body makeup that you can easily apply.
When choosing powder, make sure that it matches your foundation and skin tone. Darker shade must also be used but don’t go any darker than your arms.
I hope this five simple steps can help you gain back confidence to go out in public wearing shorts, skirts and bikinis and show off your beautiful and perfect legs that everyone envy.
