Get Legs Like a Supermodel!

We can all imagine the long, too-perfect- to be- real looking legs on the famous models. Well, turns out it’s not just their genes that make them look so good. Here are some tricks of the trade to get your gams looking gorgeous!

1. Contour With Self Tanner- Use a self tanner that’s a shade or two deeper than your natural skin tone to just your inner thighs. This will create the illusion of a thinner, more toned look just like dark clothes would, because skin with a slight tan can also minimize your size. I like to use Jergens daily glow every other day, and when I want to appear more tan, I use Victoria’s Secret Bronze lotion.

2. Camflouage Imperfections- After you’re finished with the self-tan, lightly spray your legs with a bronzer to help give the glow appearance, as well as getting rid of unsightly bruises and veins. Sally Hansen makes a great spray on bronzer specifically for legs.

3. Achieve Some Shine- Dust a shimmer powder down the legs. Silver or pale pink shimmer looks prettiest on paler skin, and a champagne or gold version is the most flattering on olive and darker skin tones. I like this one by Victorias Secret!

With these easy tips, you’ll be ready to rock the runway in no time! 🙂

    perhaps advising girls to spray-tan their inner thighs might not be the best idea, considering the amount of leg that would have to be shown in order to accomplish the full effect.

    For those of you who are saying this isn’t something you want to do– you don’t need to do it. This is advice for if you WANT to have nicer legs, not if you don’t want to. Everyone has their own insecurities, and if this makes you feel better about yourself, go for it. If you don’t want to, you don’t need to complain about Nicole giving the rest of us tips. Thanks for the great tips Nicole. (:

    I was hoping it would be a workout or something:/ not that I ant people to feel like they should loose weight, but it’s not bad to want to actually tone your legs instead of putting on lotions. (I hate lotions)

    Feel free to disagree with me, but I don’t really think that that girls should be encouraged to aspire to look like Victoria Secret models. I tend to be very conservative, but I personally would not like to be thought about the way that “men” think about the models. I realize that this is just my opinion, but maybe you could spread some light on this subject.

      I see what you’re saying but in my opinion not every thing Victoria Secret has in their line of products is something men look at in a sexual way. Nicole isn’t promoting their lingerie or other things of that nature. It’s just a lotion. When you really think about it, what men are attracted to isn’t how tan a model’s legs are but what those women are wearing. So I guess what I’m trying to say is that I don’t have a problem with wearing a victoria secret product like their lotion or perfume on a day-to-day basis because I wouldn’t be doing anything to draw attention to myself in an uneccasary way.

        Actually, it’s not the clothes tht attract guys. Yes, they can enhance the way your body looks like so it’s more attractive but it IS the legs and tan themselves that attract them.

      I agree, so what if my legs have imperfections, that’s the way God made me. I shouldn’t be going out of my way to make men lust after me and my perfect legs.
