Bridal Makeup: Mother of the Groom

It's wedding season! I had the pleasure of doing some makeup for the mother of the groom on Saturday. As a future Mother of the Bride, I know we mother's want to look beautiful, fresh and young looking on wedding day.

She had the most gorgeous tan glowy skin. She doesn't wear a lot of makeup normally and didn't want to look over done, but wanted to look a little glitzy to compliment to her fabulous muted gold dress. 

My plan was to keep her skin looking dewy, define her brows and eyes, give her eyes a bit of nice metallic shimmer and give her lips a natural but lightly shimmery look. I'll give all the tips and some Amazon Affiliate link to find the best products.

Here she is. I think she looks absolutely beautiful!

Mother of Groom/ Mother of Bride Makeup Tips

A makeup problem with older skin is creasing. The skin needs coverage, but too much foundation and concealer can settle into the natural creases in the skin. 

The other issue is the use of powder. Too much powder can cause a dry caked look on older skin. 

Always apply a good moisturizer before the foundation application.

Luckily for me, this client has beautiful skin that required minimal foundation. I used a wet makeup sponge application to create a sheer layer of foundation to even her skin tone.

I also used under eye concealer that was lightly powdered to help minimize creasing.

For her eye shadow, I used a combination of peach, gold and and charcoal with a greenish tint on her eyelids. A matte taupe in her crease. A matte cream on the brow bone topped with a bit of Becca Liquid Highlighter . Shades of peach tend to create a youthful look.

Fiber lash extensions made her lashes look amazing. Long lashes also create a youthful appearance.

 Brow powder in a medium brown, helped to fill in her brows and define their shape. Full brows are another way to create a youthful appearance.

Bronzer, coral blush and Becca Liquid Highlighter complimented her tan glowy cheeks. Glowy skin make up look younger!

A soft shimmery nude pink lipstick defined her lips with natural color. Avoid bold and dark lip colors for a younger fresh look.

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
