So This Is Why Celebrities' Legs Always Look So Good

If you were lucky enough to witness Bey-chella, then you're probably still thinking about her surprise guest performances, those legendary Balmain costumes, and the historic moment it represented. And, if you're a beauty editor, you might also still be thinking about how she got her legs to look so damn perfect — without a single nick, bump, or spider vein peeking out from her cut-off shorts.

When tanning expert James Read is working with his celebrity clients, like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, he tends to work in layers — very thin layers. He tells E!

Mix your self-tanner with a moisturizer to create an instant glow that's seamless and totally believable.
