Grandad’s legs emergency? Woken up to hot weather but not quiet ready to show off the winter pins?
There is a bottled solution called Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup. And it works! A friend of the OWL wore it to a wedding at the weekend and is delighted to report that the product does what is says on the tin. It comes in seven shades, and totally covers veins, bruises, birthmarks and scars. It actually looks as if your legs have been painted – but in a good way!
The manufacturer states the the product has up to 12 hours of staying power, but our tester wore it for 18 hours and it lasted perfectly despite very hot weather and lots of dancing.
Tip. Make sure to remove the product before going to bed.
It took quite a lot of cleanser and a long shower to remove the makeup, but it was worth the effort, as otherwise our tester would have had to wear tights, not a nice prospect in this hot weather.
