I have a medical issue that's caused brown spots on the front and back of my lower leg. It looks like bruising and scars from cigarette burns (best way I can explain it). They took a sample of it and they don't know what it is so there are no medications the doctor can prescribe. It's under the skin and not contageous. In the meantime, I have to live with it.

Summer is coming and I want to wear shorts! Last year, whenever I wore shorts, people would look and stare at my lower leg. It made me very uncomfortable, very self conscious, very embarassed.

I'm looking for leg makeup but I don't know of any good brands. I remember a few years ago Joan Rivers selling something on QVC called "Right to Bare Legs". Has anyone used this? Is it any good? Are there any other brands that I can get at maybe Sephora?

Would it be better to use a specific leg makeup or maybe just a concealer?

Ive never used it, but Sally Hanson makes one, its a spray.

Would a sunless tanning lotion work, or a spray tan like you can get at some beauty salons and health clubs? (I'd be worried that leg makeup would rub off and get messy)

I've used the Sally Hansen stuff before. It's fine, hard to rub off once it has dried, so few worries about that. However, cleaning your shower/tub is a beyotch getting the makeup off that. It's simple to use and doesn't tend to have build-up like self-tanners do.

There are several brands, they all seem to rub off a little to some degree. Yesterday I couldn't find the one I often use, coverblend, so I just ended up using my old cover girl colorstay makeup in a pinch, worked out fairly well, not as great coverage, but didn't rub off. You can find let make up on amazon. Used to be I could get the two brands I most liked, dermablend and coverblend, on ebay really inexpensively, now they're selling for as much as five times what I was paying a few years ago, but they give good coverage. It's even more difficult to find have a my complexion.

See the amazon page for the dermablend and joan rivers brand, some ratings included with descriptions. They don't really have the coverblend one I used to order, seems that's not available much of anywhere anymore.

Amazon.com: leg makeup: Beauty

Good luck, I know how discouraging it can be going bare legged, marks that started showing up on my legs have gotten more noticable in the past couple of years, very unsightly, but sometimes I don't care and just bare all, but not when I'm wearing a cute outfit.

Does it cover spider and vericose veins?
I'm talking about dermablend and coverblend.
Also,do they cover cellulite?

That's what I use it for, never thought about using it to shade out cellulite, but that's an interesting idea. I imagine it might lessen the appearance to some degree. I'm waiting on a newer brand to come in the mail that has more choices for darker complexions, but if I find my misplaced coverblend, I will see how it works on the appearance of my very minon cellulite.
