Instant leg make up

(17 Posts)

My legs are about 84 shades lighter than my arms and face and covered in spider veins and I'm going to my siblings wedding next weekend so I need something to cover them. Do the instant tan in a bottle things like Sally Hansen work? If not, what else can I try to even things out a bit.

Any suggestions are very welcome.

Following this. I rarely uncover my legs for fear of blinding people.

I use Sally Hansen all the time, it's fab.

I use Rimmel Sun Shimmer (cheap compared to most) and use a tan mitt to put on. It's really easy and doesn't come off till next shower.

Sally Hansen is great. More like foundation than tan. I have blue legs and use that for wedding all the time.

Sally Hansen is good.maybe use the cream version as the spray can be messy. It will look great don't worry

SnoopDoggyDogg Sun 07-Aug-16 19:01:28

Yes definitely agree, cream is easier than the spray.

NuggetofPurestGreen Sun 07-Aug-16 19:03:29

Oh I've never tried the cream!

I get the medium as it gives a bit of colour

The cream lasts longer too, seem to get more applications out of it.

If you're legs are really pale, make sure ou test it before the wedding day.

I bought the lightest Sally Hansen, and my legs looked like I had been dipped in a vat of orange paint when I used it.

I like the st tropez in shower tan. Daily for 3 days then every other day for maintenance. I'm sure you could do daily for longer to get a stronger colour.
I find there are no streaks (on for 3 mins in the shower then wash off) and not much fake tan smell either.

Another vote for Sally. looks like nude tights in that it gives a little coverage, but way better. Ideal for work and occasions where you need to feel dressed.

I use the rimmel one too. Has always worked for me and v easy to put on.

I use the Sally Hansen Medium spray using a mitt to apply it.

Great, thanks for all of the replies. I used to use sum shimmer back in my teen years! grin

So Sally Hansen medium is an ok colour. My arms and legs have good UK colour.

Sally hansen cream. I have very white legs and the lighter one is fine on me. Just put a little on and really spread it and the colour mellows out.
