Resorting to long skirts, dresses and pants is surely an option to hide those varicose veins but for how long will you let it dictate your outfit? We’re sure you miss wearing that LBD sitting under a pile of clothes in your wardrobe and the stunning skirt you bought online.
Makeup is the solution to hide every skin problem that you’re not ready to embrace yet. If varicose veins are making you self-conscious we’re here to help.
Things you will need:
Aloe Vera gel, foundation, eyeliner brush, concealer, finishing powder and makeup sponge or beauty blender
Start by applying some soothing aloe vera gel on your legs, it is known to be an effective remedy for varicose veins. If the gel from the plant is a little messy to work with you can try the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel which soothes and hydrates skin without feeling sticky. Massage until it gets absorbed.
Pick a foundation shade that is a closest match to the colour of your skin. Apply evenly all over your legs using makeup sponge or beauty blender. The Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation with SPF 45 spreads easily and offers high coverage.
Take a thin tip eyeliner brush and dip it in concealer that is a shade lighter than your foundation. Apply it over the veins in a thin line and blend the concealer lightly by dabbing with your finger or makeup sponge. Try the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer which comes with a doe foot applicator for easy application.
Lastly to ensure that the makeup lasts longer dab some finishing powder all over your legs. It gives a matte and oil free finish. The Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder locks in your makeup to make your skin look completely flawless.
