If you are looking for some summer sale deals or for a last minute summer cover up, visit Boden’s clearance section here and the above white summer flower skirt here.  Some nice sale things to view.  Print skirt here,    and shorts here.  I think it’s a good time to buy summer clothing, you get a late bargain, and you have planned ahead for next year’s summer wardrobe!

Of course, if you do wear shorts or summer skirts you may need to’ set dress’ your legs too…If you are lucky enough to have perfect pins – good on you! Summer is well and truly here  and I have not had the chance to lie horizontal, get my legs sun kissed, tanned or even get to grips with the numerous fake tans available.

My store cupboard beauty leg regime for pale legs and blemishes goes like this – I usually apply my favourite face foundation, a tinted moisturiser that I have been buying for years from Tesco called Skin Wisdom, and then a light dusting powder.  I also use a product  to conceal blemishes, called Cover Mark, featured above. If you are unsure of the shade, buy a trial mini tester pack from The Garden Pharmacy – an easy to navigate website or if you are near London, pop into their Covent Garden store.

On a fashion shoot, before the days of digital enhancements, a make up artist’s job included ‘dressing’ the models’ legs to hide any blemishes or to give them a  summer glow. I’m no beauty expert, but I would often watch this process – and the way to apply cover up creams, is to have a light touch. You may need to blend more than one shade, or you could end up with a brown stain mark, so use tiny ‘dabbing’ amounts.
