5 Gorgeous Makeovers—for Women Who Really Deserve Them
The Hair and Makeup: Melissa was in sixth grade the last time she colored her hair. "I didn't know what I was doing," she says. This time around, Ken painted on golden highlights for a natural, beachy effect. He trimmed away the wispy, not-exactly-even ends—Melissa cuts her own hair—to add fullness. Melissa usually forgoes makeup and was thrilled to get a tutorial. Because her eyes are deep set, she doesn't need dark eye shadows to create contours. A rich purple liner along her top and bottom lashes helped elongate her eyes, and a lavender cream shadow brightened her lids. A creamy coral blush brought a flush to her naturally luminous skin.
Her Reaction: "To be told—for an entire day—that you're beautiful? What an incredible feeling!"
