Before & Afters Makeup

Auntie Val

This is my dear sweet Aunt Val! She recently lost 115 LBS!!!!! So she was well deserving of a fun makeover. I love her gray but we thought it would be fun to try out some dark brown (by way of a wig). CHECK HER OUT!!!!!

P.S. Both photos were taken today!

    Val’s a hot chick no matter what, but the red hair makes her sizzle! She’s an inspiration to all of us.

    I would love to see a makeover with her with her natural hair colour-grey. I personally thinks she looks amazing with grey hair.

    I would also like to see a makeover with her gray hair. I have mostly white/silver hair, with a bunch of still black hair. So, my brows are also the same. Very sparse as I tweezed a great deal when I was younger. Now, I don’t know what to do. Black (the main color of my brows) shadow/pencil looks so fake. Should I just use gray shadow?

    She looks amazing! Do you ever show the techniques you use to make the transformation?

    You should do a tutorial on how to fill in brows for women with gray hair. I’m totally 19, but I keep seeing older women who have embraced their beautiful gray hair, but not so much their gray eyebrows. They fill them in to be WAY too dark. Plus I’m curious and I’m sure one day I’ll be gray…
