    Default Leg makeup?

    My three kids have done a number on my legs! I recently noticed I have veins behind both of my knees and, frankly, they make me feel old. Anyone try any of the leg cover ups? It seems like there are a lot of positive reviews for (of all things!) Sally Hansen's brand. I tried it tonight but would have called it a self-tanner that washes off. It doesn't really cover anything.

    I have not. But you earned them. Can you think of them that way, so that they no longer bother you?

    Dermablend makes foundation just for legs to cover all sorts of things on legs . MAC Face and Body foundation also works well too and you can thin it out with body lotion too

    I have heard of Derma Blend. Didn't Marla Hanson endorse it for a bit?

    Good luck Bella!
    I have a lot of permanent bruises on my legs, so use arnica (topically & internally), but since I have to wear compression garments all the time I get to hide them that way.
    I've heard a lot of good things about Dermablend, but also on thread veins (not on my legs) I've had electrolysis from my beautician, if that helps? I guess it all depends on how big the veins are?

    I need something like this. My skin scars so easily and I have seemingly permanent scars from minor scrapes, burns, even shaving nicks. Plus my legs are constantly bruised. It's been hot here this summer so I've been wearing lots of shorts and skirts but I hate how my legs look in them. I'm pale too and don't tan very well. I feel like I'm a bit young (21) to constantly be wearing hose but I haven't found anything besides the Sally Hansen spray-on tan stuff, which I'm not a fan of. It smells weird and I hate that there's shimmer in it, I feel like a damn unicorn with my sparkly legs.

    Rusalka - I've had a good reaction to using the arnica (mainly as a cream, applied daily, but later I tried it internally as a homeopathic remedy), you could try that. In any case feed the skin that has been damaged (I recommend rose oil, but you can try olive or similar) so that it can recover; I also took large amounts of Vit C (like for a cold) after surgery & my surgeon commented on how quickly I had recovered both in- & externally (he did a lot of work, bless him!).
    Since then I take it when needed; although I think a couple of posters here have also tried it externally/locally.

    Rusalka, they make a lotion version now that has a matte finish. I admit I used it once before asking this question and didn't think it covered enough. But damn if I'm not changing my mind! The next day it looked amazing. It doesn't even come off in the shower or pool (you have to use soap and a washcloth to take it off). I wore it today with shorter shorts (not my usual 11 inch long bermudas) to a sweaty, hot football game. There wasn't a streak or anything when I got home.

    I know, they're a horror! Just swarming around, watching me sparkle. I'd rather have the vampires following me around.

    That definitely sounds more like what I'm looking for. I'll try to find it!

    They sell it at Target and Walmart here. It's right next to the airbrush variety.

    One of the funniest things I've heard from a friend after the first one -- "Edward sparkles like a chicky peep when he gets in the sun."

    And y'all, I'm not kidding -- if y'all do this, apologies for knocking car decals -- one office I visit has a car in the same spot every time I visit and has an "I drive like a Cullen" cling magnet.

    Now, I'm all for books, but am not gonna get a tag or a cling magnet or anything talking about my love for Stephen King or other fave authors stuck on the car.

    I certainly wouldn't announce my love of the Twilight books to the world, which to me is much more disturbing than the car decal. I'm not a huge can of decals in general, especially the ones with stick figures of all the family members. I think the Darwin fish are clever, I do like those.

    Funny story: I don't remember this woman very well because I was young at the time, but my family lived in an apartment complex where one of the tenants was a notorious bitch. Always complaining about noise, people parking too close to her in the lot, someone had too many plants on their balcony, etc etc. I don't know the details, but suffice to say she was not well liked. So someone put a sticker that said "my other car is a broomstick" on her car, which apparently went unnoticed for a couple of weeks Don't remember if it was ever found out who did it or if there were any repercussions, but my parents giggle about it to this day.
