3 Real-Women Beauty Makeovers
Her hair: Ben Stewart, the color director of the Cutler/Redken Salon, in New York City, used demipermanent color to make Beth’s natural shade look richer (and cover grays). He then wove in subtle highlights that brightened her skin. Next, Holcombe snipped Beth’s one-length strands into a shorter, surprisingly lower-maintenance style with volumizing layers. “It looks great blown straight or air-dried wavy,” he says.
Her makeup: Silver’s goal: to help Beth appear well rested. She applied illuminating concealer to under-eye shadows and a shimmery champagne blush to Beth’s cheeks (try Lancôme Miel Glacé; $30, lancome-usa.com). Then, to make Beth’s blue eyes look wide awake, she dabbed the lids with copper shadow, lined them with brown pencil, and applied black mascara. Last, Silver added peachy pink lipstick (try Clinique Butter Shine in Adore U; $15, clinique.com). “Re-creating the look in the morning takes no time, so I can catch a few more z’s. Win-win!” says Beth.
