Body Makeup for Perfect Legs in Short Shorts

Short Shorts How to Get Perfect Legs
It's short-shorts season and the hemlines are ittier and bittier than ever for summer 2010. Channel Daisy Duke in summer's tiny denim shorts but not without flaunting perfectly tanned, toned legs. Here's how to get 'em without a single workout. In the meantime, try on makeup in our virtual makeover studio.Make sure your gams are thoroughly exfoliated, clean-shaven and hydrated with a rich and creamy moisturizer that imparts a luminous finish. When applied to dry, dead skin, makeup often takes on a mottled, cakey and unrealistic appearance. Remember that it's extremely important to keep your legs, arms and face in the same color family, and never attempt to create an allover tan with makeup or you run the risk of streaking. Sometimes a little sunshine-in-a-bottle (self-tanner) is all it takes to enhance muscle definition, diminish veins and create definition everywhere--and the color stays put for a few days at a time.

Want to camouflage a tan line on the legs? Reach for a creamy, hydrating foundation and apply it directly to the feet, ankles and other areas that may be lighter than the majority of your legs. The trick to creating an even tone is blending well with a sponge.

Want to camouflage spider veins or shaving cuts? Pick an opaque, cream-based concealer that's almost white to neutralize greenish, bluish or reddish imperfections on the skin. Using a sponge or brush, pat the concealer on the areas you want to cover, then apply a flesh-toned foundation. When applying the foundation, pat lightly using a sponge. Additionally, you can slenderize and lengthen legs by blending a highlighter cream with iridescent shimmer down the front of your shins.

Once you've achieved your ideal coverage, allow the makeup to dry for a few minutes and set with a matching powder to make it smudge-proof (saturate a puff with powder, apply it generously to the skin, and brush off excess with a wide, fluffy brush). Just to be safe, avoid sitting on white fabric couches or rolling in white sheets until you've had the opportunity to thoroughly wash off your body makeup with soap and water. --Stephanie Simons
