3 Real-Women Beauty Makeovers
Her hair: Holcombe cut Carol’s hair into a piecey, short style to give her face a lifted appearance. (Longer hair had dragged it down.) He added jagged bangs that skim her brows to put the focus on her eyes. Then he worked styling putty (try Redken 05 Rugged Texturizer; $17, redken.com for salons) into the ends for a cool, tousled effect.
Her makeup: To give Carol a more vibrant look, Silver first added color to her complexion with a peach cream blush (try Shiseido Peach Flush; $33, shiseido.com). Then she tapped a line-smoothing primer onto Carol’s lids and topped it with a gold shadow for a touch of shimmer, which brightened her whole face. Finally, Silver smudged a gray pencil (try Lancôme Fumée; $25.50, lancome-usa.com) along Carol’s top and bottom lashes and followed with mascara and rosy beige lip gloss. “I didn’t look this young when I was younger!” says Carol.
