The Makeover: Sun-Kissed Chestnut
The Fix: To reduce the redness, Tammy gave Donna an allover mocha base color. "The depth of the warm shade will make her skin more radiant and her eye color more intense," she said. She wove sun-kissed highlights around Donna's face to keep the color from looking flat. As Donna admired her new look, Tammy doled out some take-home advice: "From now on, use a styling product that offers UV protection, and for days in the sun, protect the color under a hat."
Makeup Prescription: Donna's new hair color is so vibrant, she should avoid a lot of additional color in her makeup. "Anything too bright could look garish," cautioned Rebecca Restrepo, who did the makeup on these pages. She focused on Donna's eyes with a bronzy amber shadow (Guerlain Ombre Eclat Duo & Liner in L'heure Brune) and dabbed corals on her cheeks (Max Factor ColorGenius mineral blush in Peaches) and lips (M.A.C. Slimshine Lipstick in Missy).
