Farmgirl Beauty Secret #120: dark liquid foundation+body lotion=ultra-sexy legs.

Get your gams holiday dress-ready with this simple fix: Mix 1-part dark liquid foundation (regardless of the shade you are- use the darkest shade you can find) and 5-part body lotion. Apply the mixture to the entire length of your legs and smooth out thoroughly.

This concoction evens out skin tone (think: liquid panty hose) and magically adds definition and contour to your legs. It doesn’t turn your skin a gaudy shade of orange like bronzers do. Bonus: it’s fairly transfer-resistant (if you are wearing light colors or are worried about any transfer, opt for a transfer-resistant foundation). The secret is in using only a small amount of foundation. For extra oomph, lightly dust the length of your shins and knees with any shimmery champagne eyeshadow you have on hand.

HI there!

No, it's quite transfer-resistant, but I would still opt for a longwear type foundation and take extra precautions if you're wearing white :)
