How Raven-Symone Covers Dark Pores
Actress Raven-Symone was on CBS' The Talk recently to promote her new ABC sitcom State of Georgia, in which she plays an aspiring actress named Georgia Chamberlain who leaves the south in the hopes of becoming a big star in New York City.
Raven-Symone was asked to comment about an earlier discussion about host Julie Chen and pantyhose. "I have something called strawberry legs...I have really, really dark pores because of the hair," Raven-Symone told the ladies of The Talk. "I wear sheer hose when I'm on the red carpet and when I'm working so I don't have to wear makeup. Otherwise I use Dermablend, which is what exotic dancers use to cover all their marks and stuff, and it gets all over your clothes. So I wear sheer pantyhose."
Since The Talk's Holly Robinson Peete had lamented that there weren't enough pantyhose shades for women of color, Raven-Symone gave them another tip, something her mother used to do to darken her pantyhose when she was younger. "If you need them to be a shade darker," put the pantyhose "into a tub of hot water with tea bags and it dyes them."
"That's too much work, Raven," said Holly. I agree. Read my article for tips on getting rid of dark pores on the legs.
And getting back to strawberries--the color this time--what did look good on Raven-Symone was her bright strawberry-red lipstick. OK, I do have a thing for red lipstick and one of these days I'll get the courage to pare down the amount I have (a shoebox full). I know that's ridiculous. But it's one of the quickest ways to make dull teeth look whiter and the face brighter. For red hot lips, read more about how to wear bright lipstick.
