The end of the year is finally approaching, and with it everything that women do to look and feel beautiful during the holidays. Body makeup has been the subject of past conversations, but she always knows when and how to return.

The controversy about its advantages and disadvantages is not new, but the acceptance speech that now surrounds it is: Is it worth hiding varicose veins, spots or moles with makeup that falls off as soon as it touches the water?

That goes in each one. However, if you want to take advantage of products of this type, here are some tips on how to use them.

Do your skin a favor: exfoliate first.

This is helpful not only for makeup to “stick” more to your skin, but to keep it healthy. Make a homemade mask and apply it on your legs so that, when applying makeup, they are smooth and radiant.

The skin of your legs deserves as much attention like that of your face: it moisturizes.


It happens sometimes that we dedicate all the care to our face and put the rest aside. Remember that the skin is our largest organ, which is why we must moisturize and protect it equally. Apply moisturizer on your legs for a while after exfoliating. This will allow your legs to be ready to receive the makeup pigment without a problem.

Fun time: make up!

It is time to decide how tan you want your legs. Apply the product evenly and without leaving gaps. Regardless of the presentation in which you buy it (powder or spray), make sure to spread it all over the skin, and that there are no lighter tones in some areas. And ready! Hide spots, scars, varicose veins and even cellulite in the blink of an eye.

Extra: Contour your legs to get a more stylized result.

Although this is a technique that requires more preparation – due to the extent of the skin on the legs – it is not impossible for you to do it yourself and at home. Draw a long line with petroleum jelly or a glitter stick and shade other parts of the legs to your liking. This method adapts to any skin tone and will help you show off slimmer legs (even if it’s just a visual effect).
