Watch 52-Year-Old Transform Into New Person With Makeup
Marilyn Caylor 1/12/2018
Women have been using makeup to transform their looks for centuries. The Egyptians used kohl eyeliner, the Chinese applied rice powder to their face, and Romans tended to favor expensive red ochre for their cheeks. Living in modern times means that we don't have to worry about creating our makeup from scratch, but we still have to master the art of applying it.
There's no end to the number of fresh-faced young ladies on YouTube who are eager to show us their daily makeup routines, but their tricks don't always work for mature women. Thankfully we have Monique Parent to show us how she uses the power of makeup to transform her pretty but plain looks into a gorgeous goddess.
Monique's personality is always so upbeat, and you can't help but want to follow along as she cheerfully exclaims, "Let's get started, shall we!" First she applies moisturizer, which is something that all dry skin deeply craves.
But, her next step is something that mature women usually aren't brave enough to do - she starts brushing purple streaks into her grey hair. It sounds like a nightmare for anyone over 25, but wait until you see the incredible results!
After tucking her hair into a bun, Monique applies the usual makeup that we're all familiar with - foundation, concealer, powder, and blush.
She adds a bright purple pop of color to her eyelids, which match her equally bold hair! You may have heard that the eyes are the windows to your soul, and Monique really knows how to make her soul shine through loud and clear.
Her perfectly polished eyebrows, purple lipstick, and smokey eyeliner add even more depth to her incredible makeover. But, Monique hasn't barely even touched upon her stunning transformation!
After she unpins her hair, Monique gets to work on turning those purple streaks into a visually stunning masterpiece. You might think that bright colors and purple hair are things that mature ladies should steer clear of, but this lady proves that age isn't a barrier when it comes to being playful with your appearance.
After all her hard work, Monique literally looks at least 20 years younger! It just goes to show that the power of makeup can do wonderful things for women of all ages - all it takes is a fabulous attitude!
