I’ve heard good things about airbrush spray tans that might give you a little coverage. Airbrush makeup might also work, but that would get more expensive.

Are you wearing a short dress?

My sister hates her legs and just uses liquid foundation. I think it is weird but it looks pretty good. I’m sure there are better options but they would all be more expensive.

Couldn’t your photographer just retouch the pics of your legs. I think that would be easier and less troublesome than trying to makeup your legs.

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs has some great coverage, and good staying power (I’d recommend spraying it into your hands, then smoothing it onto your legs for smoother application).  I would also test it out with a thrift-store white skirt first, to make sure it won’t rub off on your dress, but I’ve had excellent experiences with it.

Just retouch your legs in the photos – it’s really easy. Way easier than testing makeup that will almost certainly come off on your gown!

You may want to check into the Kat Von D tattoo cover stuff – I’d imagine it has better staying power than the Sally Hansen Airbrush stuff, which I’ve used and it seemed like it rubbed off easily – NOT good if you’re wearing white!

Other than that I’d suggest doing a LIGHT self tanner a several days before and then the day of use a mixture of baby oil and gold shimmer lotion (not glitter but just the ones that give you a “glow”) – that way your legs are moisturized and they reflect light evenly (which should help hide discoloration).

I also think that if it’s just for a few shots (that guests may not even see) I’d just go the photoshopping route.  Ask your photographer about this specifically and I’m sure it’ll be easy!

if you were wearing a short dress or showing your legs most of the night id say otherwise.
