Pink Makeup Looks with Pretty Pink Cosmetics

Who doesn't love a pink makeup look! 

Pink is fresh, pretty and especially nice in the spring for Mother's Day.  I use pink often when doing bridal and prom makeup on my clients because it is soft and romantic plus, there is a pink to suit every skin tone. Cool pink, warm pink, soft pink, bright pink, light pink, dark pink. So many pinks to choose from!

I will share with you some of my favorite pink makeup items that I use to create beautiful pink makeup looks along with my Amazon Affiliate links and other links to help you find them.

Let's start with the eyes, then the cheeks, followed by the lips and finishing with the nails.

Eye Shadows

I use many eye shadow colors, usually 4 to 6, when I paint an eye. Sometimes, I seem to have a hard time finding the shades of pink eye shadow that I'm thinking of in one palette. That means using a variety of eye shadow palettes to find all the shades I'm looking for. Sometimes, I have to mix and layer colors to get the shade I want.

For this pink makeup look I used 4 different pinks and a matte black as a liner.

Bunny Nose, from the Too Faced Natural Love Palette, went on the lid and inner crease. It's a very soft shimmery pink.

New Money, from the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette, went on the outer lid and on the outer crease. I adore the intensity of New Money!

Hot Pants, from an Urban Decay Vice Palette which is no longer available unfortunately, went in the center of the eye lid.

Pink Cheeks, from the Too Faced Natural Love Palette, is a nice pale pink to highlight the brow bone. 

A thin line of Too Faced Decadent, from the Chocolate Gold Palette is a great black liner. 

I finished the look off with black mascara. 

For a softer look, Try Laura Geller Iconic New York Collection Uptown Chic Eye Shadow. It's pretty collection of pink, rose and gold hued shadows for those looking for a more subdued pink eye shadow look.

If you want a really bold bright pink look, try The Sweet Pinks by Juvia's Palette. My sensitive friends, this one is not for you. These highly pigmented colors may irritate the sensitive eye area. I find they can actually stain the eyelids!

 PS Pink and Angelic in the Honeybee Garden Cosmopolitan Palette create a really pretty soft pink shadow look. 

The Makeup Revolution Reloaded Provocative Palette is a lovely collection of 15 pretty shades of pink for under $15!
Most of the time, I use more than one color of blush to give the cheeks dimension. There are some great blushes that are multi colored to create a natural dimensional using just one blush product.

Laura Geller Baked Blush in Pink Buttercream is a beautiful pink that is multi colored to give a natural flush of pink.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio in Pink Passion gives you three pretty pinks to layer and blend.

I have a love affair with lipstick! There are at least a dozen lip colors in my handbag at any given time. Never mind what's in my lipstick makeup bag and what's in my new lipstick storage box!

If you are looking for a bold, bright, cool toned pink lipstick, try Zoya Lucky. It's a comfortable long wearing lipstick.

Lime Crime Wet Cherry Lip Gloss in Juicy Cherry gives you gorgeous glossy iridescent pink color.

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.

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
