Prom Makeup 2018: Pretty Primrose Pink Makeup for Glasses Wearers

pink primrose
It's prom time and we've had quite a few beauties come in the salon for hair and makeup! Wearing glasses is an "in" thing now so many women are choosing to wear their glasses to the prom. 

A recent prom client wanted a natural makeup that would help her eyes stand out behind her dark framed glasses. She would be wearing a black dress to the prom. I thought extra attention to her lashes and makeup in shades of primrose pink would be perfect for her fair complexion.

I started by applying light peach concealer to the under eye area and an ivory foundation with both a foundation brush and sponge. Her eyes were lined with black pencil liner on the top lashes and dark brown on the lower lashes, then gently smudged with dark brown shadow. 

I used one of my favorite eye shadow palettes, the Too Faced Natural Love Eye Shadow Collection. The soft pink shadows look like they were made for her!

For her lashes, I applied black mascara and added lash fibers to make her lashes extra long. Lash fibers do amazing things for lashes! I used Cherry Blooms Lash Fibers. I like them because they are black. Some fibers are white.

A soft pink slightly shimmery blush and highlighting powder accented her cheeks. Her lips were lined with a blush pink lip liner and topped with pink champagne gloss. Gorgeous with or without her glasses!



She wore her long hair down and curled with a bit loosely pulled back.

I have a few tips to help you with your eye makeup so your eyes don't get lost behind your glasses.
Eye Makeup Tips for Wearing Glasses

Eye Shadow 
Start with a little color. Neutral shadows have been the rage for the past couple years but I find a bit of eye shadow with color can add a brightness and help eyes pop behind glasses. Eye shadow with a soft shimmer adds light and brightness to the eyes. Avoid heavily frosted eye shadows. Keep the shadow on the eyelids and a little in the crease. Don't take colored shadow up to the brow bone. Stick to a cream shade of shadow to highlight the brow bone.

Define with Eye Liner
Line your eyes with a dark brown, plum, charcoal, black or even navy blue liner. Make the line on the top thick and the line on the bottom thin. 

Accentuate Your Lashes
Curl your lashes. Curling makes the lashes look longer and gives your eyes a lift.

Add two coats of black mascara on top lashes. Use a lengthen formula to make them look a little longer. Add one light coat to the bottom lashes. The dark mascara make the whites of your eyes look brighter and intensifies your eye color. 

Groom Your Brows
Don't forget about your brows. Clean up stray hairs for a clean look. Give the brows a fuller bolder look by filling them in with a brow powder.

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.

Dermatofibromas

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. 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

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 good...surgery. 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
