Wedding Makeup and Hair Ideas for a May Bride

I had the pleasure of doing makeup for a beautiful May bride this past Saturday. The morning was cloudy, damp and chilly but spirits were bright and warm in the salon as the bride and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done. Many of the bridesmaids chose braided hairstyles. There was a mix of up styles and down styles. They looked amazing!

We chose to do makeup was clean and fresh with a gentle smokey eye and a nude pink lip. As always, I want the skin to look flawless and glowy.

The brides hairstyle had a fabulous reto feel about it. She wore a sparkly comb on one side. She would be wearing a veil that she would attach later.

We kept her makeup clean and fresh too. The bride wanted to make her own lashes look longer so she wouldn't have to worry about false lashes. I used waterproof mascara, of course, and Cherry Blooms lash fibers to help extend her lashes a bit. The warm neutral eye shadow helped her blue eyes pop. Gorgeous!

I like to check how the makeup looks with and without a flash.

She has color and stays warm looking with the flash. The makeup look lovely in both photos. I thought of this beautiful in the afternoon as the sun broke through the clouds. The dreary morning turned into a sunny afternoon!

All the best to the bride and groom!

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.

Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
