In an age of selfies and constant social media sharing, a growing number of teenagers are undergoing plastic surgery to alter their appearance. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) about 229,000 cosmetic procedures were performed on patients aged 13 to 19 in 2017.  Currently, teenagers account for about four percent of all cosmetic surgery procedures, with the most common procedures among teens being nose reshaping, male breast reduction and ear surgery. Adolescents also account for a small percentage of total nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, such as laser hair removal, skin resurfacing and Botox injections.

“While a rhinoplasty or ear surgery can be performed safely by a board-certified surgeon and are, in many cases, appropriate for an adolescent, other cosmetic procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction or injectables are typically not recommended for minors for several reasons, including lack of research,” said Dallas board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich. “It’s concerning that there has been a surge in the use of injectables in young patients to achieve augmented cheeks and lips when there is no evidence that these procedures are safe for adolescents.” (more…)

Celebrity Makeup Artist Tasha Brown worked with bareMinerals Power of Good Ambassador, actress Letitia Wright, for Monday night’s Emmy Awards.  Brown was inspired by Wright’s gorgeous Pamela Rowland gown, and used peachy and bronze tones to keep her looking ethereal to match her dress.  Tasha added soft, arched brows and golden eyeshadow with a natural skin finish, added glowing shimmery highlights on the cheekbones and eye lids.

Brown primed Wright’s clean skin with bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Defense Radian Protective Veil with SPF and then applied the brand’s Original Loose Powder Foundation with SPF 15 in Golden Dark, using tapping motion through the center of the face for light coverage.  She then used a sheer layer of Barepro Glow Highlighter in Fierce to highlight the tops of Wright’s cheekbones, center of nose and chin for a bit of glow and dimension. To add a flush of color, Brown lightly dusted Gen Nude Powder Blush in That Peach Tho along hairline, temples, and cheeks. 

For Wright’s dreamy eyes, Brown applied the deep bronze tones of the Gen Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Neutral all over the eyelid to better complement the color of her gown.  Then she completed the look with Wright’s beautiful lips, forgoing traditional liner “for a softer edge to the lips,” and applying Gen Nude Buttercream Lip Gloss in Flirt.
