Natural Bridal Makeup

Makeup by Jill Suzanne

"A bride's appearance on her wedding day should be the single most spectacular visual component of the entire celebration!"
-Autumn 1986 issue Bridal Guide Magazine
I love this quote from Bridal Guide Magazine. I love it because a completely agree! Everyone waits excitedly for that first glimpse of the bride as she appears at the back of the aisle.

She should take your breath away with her whole bridal look... the dress, the veil, the hair, the makeup, the jewelry. Every detail is important to create a bride's perfect bridal vision that will live forever in memories, videos and photographs.

Many brides say they don't wear a lot of makeup and they want to look like themselves on their wedding so they shy away from having professional makeup done on their wedding day.

Professional makeup is a must for brides! I always use a light hand on brides who desire to look natural on their wedding day. I can minimize flaws, accentuate your good features and make your skin glow. You will look more gorgeous but still natural in your pictures.

Plus, the makeup will feel light, not heavy or oily. I take the utmost care with those who have sensitive skin. I use gentle moisturizers, toners, primers and foundations to keep the skin calm and irritation free.

Here is one of my brides who doesn't wear a lot of makeup. She looks fresh and natural in her makeup in soft, warm shades of peach and brown.

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.
