It wasn’t until I moved to Los Angeles that I realized many women west of the Hudson did not wear stockings with their pencil skirts and pumps. I used to wear them all through high school and during the years I worked as a temp in Wall Street because it was considered “professional” to do so.
The beauty of hosiery is that it polishes up your look and does a great job at making your legs appear flawless. Come to think of it, I actually miss their magical effect! It perfectly hid those little veins and imperfections ( I bruise easily). My mother, another hosiery fan, introduced me to an alternative, MAC Face and Body Foundation. She suggested I dab and blend here and there where I need it. The difference was pretty amazing. The makeup blended in perfectly while covering anything that resembled the color blue on my legs. I’ve also used it to cover stretch marks and to give my legs a smooth, flawless appearance.
If you’d like to show off your legs but have a few imperfections, here are 10 makeup options for flawless looking legs.
