  • i bruise easy too but i dont try cover it up. i normally wear jeans anyways but when i do wear shorts i dont care who sees the bruises. im a clumsy person so what lol. i been told though that self tanner lotions suppose to help if you want to keep applying the stuff and ice right after it happens suppose to minimize bruising. if all else fails you could always use foundation or concealer

  • I'm a redhead with fair skin. I try not to wear shorts in public because I'm always bruised, but I don't do anything to cover them up. Maybe a mineral makeup would work.

  • If you drink OJ, it will heal faster, and the citrus strengthens vein walls and prevents buising.

  • when the bruise is there, and doesnt hurt anymore u can rub the area to break up the old blood to make the bruise go away faster but other than that make-up is most likey ur best bet..
