Makeover Masterpiece

Heaven Focht is our first makeover of 2019! She is a wife and a mother to two beautiful children. She works for Stillwater Medical Center in Patient Access Services in the ER department. She enjoys photography in her free time.

Heaven wanted to change her hair because she didn’t like the orange tones in her hair anymore, and she had been blonde for so long. Her hair really needed a good fresh cut as well. Being a mom to two young children, she oftentimes wears her hair in a messy bun. However, she enjoys getting glammed up from time to time.

Heaven had our stylist, Baby, create her makeover. She came in with a grown out ombré look. Her ends were extremely light but starting to turn an undesirable brassy shade. Because Heaven had blonde hair for an extended amount of time, she was ready to try something new. For her root shade, Baby chose a medium to dark cool toned brown. She then melted a lighter cool toned shade throughout her mid-lengths and ends. This provided a seamless blend from root to ends. Baby chose these colors to counteract the yellow while still maintaining a cool result.

Heaven was definitely in need of a haircut. Baby not only trimmed the split ends off, but she also added long layers to remove weight and create volume. For the styling products, Baby mixed Pureology’s Intense Smoothing Cream and Redken’s Instant Deflate to leave Heaven’s hair silky smooth and shiny. She used a BioIonic round/square brush at the root on top to preserve the volume. Loose waves were then added for some fun texture.

For Heaven’s makeup, Add had a great starting point to work from. She began using bareMinerals Light 1 concealer on Heaven’s under eyes and any other darkened area. To set that in place and provide great coverage, Add applied bareMinerals Original foundation in Fairly Light. Medium Invisible Bronze and Light Invisible Glow were used for her contour and highlight shades. Add applied Call My Blush on the apples of Heaven’s cheeks. To help make Heaven’s gorgeous eyes pop, Add kept it simple by only using True Gold on the inner portion of her lid and Sex Kitten on the outer corners. This was followed by Brunette brow powder and Lash Domination mascara. Add chose Hype lip color to complete Heaven’s look.
