Last weekend I got over 40 mosquito bites on my legs. I have a wedding to go to tonight and I need to cover them somehow. They are no longer raised they just look like little bruises. How can I cover them up?

I would wear a long gown... but I do not really think the ones I have are appropriate for summer.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If none of the ladies want to help you out with an answer,,, I have been married forever and either my wife or daughters use to put body lotion on their legs to give them a little shine so they don't look dryand it may blend the bite with your skin.. That use to work.. If you use makeup it just looks dumb... Anyhow, try it and just go and have fun... You could always wear panty hose but yeah I know, not in the summer....

A spot treatment with foundation of matching tone or a tad lighter to blend may work too, if you don't have the time to go and do the Mystic tan or bronzer idea - since they are darker in color than the rest of your legs the lighter may tone them down more and then you can blend it in.

Just an idea - has worked in the past on bruises and bumps I didn't want to show on my legs.

You may want to add a dusting of powder to set it.

Girlie, I would have said wear a see through blouse with no bra and no body would even notice your legs

but maybe thats why you asked the girls for help

First off.....never mind what my thoughtless other half said!


Liquid foundation w/a powdered foundation over it.

I keep spray Benadryl with me all the time. If I get bit, I spray it asap or I end up a big, ole red, itchy mess w/scars. Not a pretty sight.

Anyway, good luck clearing this up.........

and,
just realized
this wedding was last night! Hope all was well!
