Modeling Dilemma:You busted your leg and now are black and blue!

Legs look bad? Do you have a photo shoot? If you have a nasty black and blue on your leg these are some hints into making your skin look fresh again to prepare for a photo shoot:

1. If it is a black and blue don't forget to ice it! It makes the swelling go down.

2. Then lotion your legs as you normally would but don't put too much shine on them because you are not done

3. You should have a few shades of foundation, it is best to have a lighter shade than your own color and then of course your shade. Spray your leg with a Sally Hansen spray that is lighter than your legs. Then do it again and this time with a shade that is a normal color for your legs. By putting the lighter shade on first you will lighten the appearance of the black and blue. And you want your legs to look natural so use your natural spray color after the lighter shade dries. Then you can use a poweder over the spray if you want to touch up. Bronzers can be helpful but don't over do it: Thank god for photoshop!

Other options fix your bruised or blemished legs are:
Sephora Brand SuperStars - Super Sheen Bronzing Mist (Original Price: $18) $12

Or if you don't want to use a foundation spray use Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer.

You can also have very good luck using an airbrush makeup spray.

Also be careful, as a model you have to protect your legs so try not to bang your knee into anything. Be careful with your skin, if you need it to model. If I bang my leg into something or my hip, or arm or hand, I get mad! Not at only the pain, but because my body is what I need to model.
