Does anyone know of any good body foundations that will cover imperfections such as blemishes and pigmentation on the body? Thanks.

Mac have a Face & Body foundation which is great for blemishes. I use it in summer instead of fake tan, it makes me look like I have perfect legs (which is far from reality)

Thanks julia Mac sounds promising.

I second the mac one. Perhaps there are also some imperceptible tights that people know of? If it is broken veins then they are simple to treat, I'm thinking of having it done.

Thanks pseu it's just general blemishes and pigmentation and a strecth mark or two, that I would like to cover.

Sally Hansen tan is amazing. It says it's just for your legs but it's fine to use everywhere. I'd be lost without the stuff.

Oh and it is really good at covering blemishes and evening out skin tone.

I used the Sally Hansen tan on my legs in the summer and was v impressed. Good to know you can use it on body too. My friend tried Mac and let me have a little try of hers and I could see it would give you quite a lot of coverage as well as colour. I couldn't afford it though and had to go for the Sally H which I felt did it's job.

I've got both (MAC as part of camoflague makeup for my arm), and the Sally Hansen stays in place better, but looks more fake iyswim

Thanks ladies, I think mac might be the one I go for, which one is better for strecth marks?
