10 Ways to Disguise Uglee Feet
Ah, yes...ugly feet give new meaning to the words "it is what it is!" Ten ways to disguise ugly feet can help whether you're looking to dress 'em up, dress 'em down or want to simply focus attention elsewhere. Wearing shoes for ugly feet can help, but there are lots of other techniques:
1. Jewelry: A dangly anklet or a couple of toe rings can do wonders for drawing the eyes to the jewelry and not the foot. If your feet are veiny, opt for a "barefoot jewelry sandal," which basically covers the top of your foot so you can have coverage and still go barefoot.
2. Makeup and Self-Tanner: Whether you want the instant, dramatic coverage of body makeup or specifically opt for makeup for your feet, or even the more subtle and lasting coverage of a self tanner, both work in the way a good foundation does by evening out skin tone and hiding imperfections.
3. Go see a pedicurist!: Believe me, these talented folks that are paid to make your feet pretty have seen it all. Spending on average $25 per week to relieve a major source of your anxiety is a steal. Avoiding the salon because you are afraid that your feet will be the worst they have ever seen is insensible - foot care and pedicures are important! Remember, they want you to be happy with the results too!
4. Mules: No, not the farm animal. Nobody will even wonder why you are wearing these because they are a spring, summer, and fall shoe; easy to slip on with the casualness of flip flops.
5. Fake toenails: Ok. So six of the seven days each week, you keep your feet hidden in full coverage footwear, while people think you're nuts for wearing socks in the midst of a 90 degree July. "Oh, I just hate to go barefoot," doesn't work when on the seventh day Cousin Sara is having her wedding and the only shoes that will look good with your dress are sandals. Two words: fake toenails. Just like the fingernails, glue them on to whatever you've got, file them to a believable length, paint them, and voila!
6. Heels: It's a fact - everybody's legs look better in heels. Maybe you wouldn't be caught dead in flip-flops, but consider reversing how you build your daily outfits....build them around a sandal with a slightly higher heel (1 1/2" or above). Heels draw the eyes up to the legs, which in turn, take the focus off the feet.
7. Moisturizer: Specifically, a moisturizer intended for hands and feet because they tend to be
more intensely moisturizing. They will fill in cracks and "plump" the skin making veins and other imperfections less noticeable. Not to mention corns and calluses...
8. Outdoor "Sporty" sandals: No one will think you are trying to hide your feet in this type of sandal because it shows just enough of your foot to fake some confidence and yet conceals a little bit all over, from front to back. Also, they tend to be lightweight and you can get them wet.
9. Shoe Clips: Sometimes just clipping a big 'ole flower to your sandals or flip flops can quickly hide what you don't want people to see.
10. Confidence: Many times we think all eyes are on our flaws, when the truth is, others are not paying that much attention to us. A beautiful set of toes won't make us any more friends or make the ones we have love us more. Whether you have wide feet, claws, calluses, scars, bunions, or corns, most people are going to spend their time looking at you, not your feet. Eventually, you have to do what you can that is practical and remember how awesome you are!
