I was looking for a maxi dress, but I found, instead, a dress that's not quite maxi.

However, I have this vein that runs down the front of my leg, where a part of it will be visible in this dress.

Have any of you used leg make up for something like this?

If so, what product did you try?

I really don't want to put it on my whole leg, just want to cover up that ugly vein.
Also, can I sleep in it, or will it come off on the sheets if I don't take a shower as soon as I get back to the cabin?

Some "leg makeup" is pretty stable...others might need some setting powder applied.

I'm going to tell you that NO ONE will be looking at your vein, or judging you on it! Get a bit of sun, or do a "self tan" thing...and you will be fine. I guarantee that nobody will notice your leg....folks on vacation are pretty much focused ONLY on themselves....despite the "people watching" thing that seems so popular.....folks may watch, but they do NOT notice.

Please don't worry about that!

Look for Sally Hansen leg make up at the drug store. Different shades are available. I use it to mask the occasional bruise, veins, and I even use it on my decolletage at times to even out skin tone from redness and visible sun damage.

Thank you! I have read some reviews that are very positive for this product.

The Sally Hanson is great & cheap! Hoola at Ulta is also great & comes with its own applicator

I also have a vein that I don't like on my leg and I found that Sally Hansen's product doesn't work well at all for me - but everyone is different.

Self tanning (or real tanning) doesn't conceal mine much.

I use DermaBlend. It works beautifully for me, doesn't rub off on clothing or bedding. I purchased mine at Nordstrom (years ago...my original purchase is still going strong, I just don't need much I guess!). Anyhow, they now carrry DermaBlend at a lot of other stores, including Ulta. It is helpful to purchase at a store where you can test (or even get a sample, which is even better).

I realize that probably nobody notices the vein on my leg, and I wouldn't care if they "judged" me - or not. LOL I don't like how it looks and I like to cover it. It's really just as simple as that - for me at least. To each their own...

I agree with you.
I don't like looking at it and I want to cover it.

I vouch for Sally as well..comes at least in a light and a medium type shade . I used it for a winter wedding where I didn't want to wear hose..worked great.

Dermacol. Absolutely amazing for veins, age spots, anything darker than your skin tone.

Watch youtube videos on the colors and how to apply.

Love it!

While I haven’t used it on my legs, I’ve faithfully used the Kat Von D makeup that is demonstrated in the above video, and I’m confident that would work for you! I get mine at Sephora.
