Here is where you will resort to types of makeup styles for your body.
Cover Your Scars:
Scars are not always easy to fade. For starters, there are tons of things you need to keep in mind when you are trying to cover up scars: You will need some good makeup or base foundation and also a colour correcting palette which will blend it all in.
How to Prep: For best results, start with a bare face and put on foundation as you would. Tanning lotion are great at covering up scars and you can use them on different parts of your body too. You just need to make sure that you are using it in moderation so that your entire look feels like it is in a single colour.

Unlike the traditional makeup that we generally use on our faces, leg makeup or for that matter, body makeup is much thicker. Body makeup is so heavy duty that it is often used to cover up scars and tattoos too.
How to Prep: For this one too, you will have to prep your legs before you start out. Remove anything that may cause a hindrance, including those ingrown hair and stubs. Your legs should be exfoliated and as clean as possible to prevent any kind of obstacles to the makeup.
Faking a Tan:
This is another form of body art wherein you try and remove that paleness from your body and look like a summer goddess! Tanning is one of the most popular types of body makeup and almost everyone loves getting that fake bronze hues in their bodies.
There are professional spray tans which can give you just the look you want. These are a little expensive and you can instead settle down for a normal spray tan too. But for the latter, you need to actually know how to do it; otherwise it may not be that perfect and may come out as blotchy. You can also use bronzers if you are not too sure of self-tanners, but again, you will have to exercise a lot of caution while using them because you certainly don’t want to look blotchy and patchy!
