IN THE REAL LIFE
Glossy magazine editor. She prefers clothes that are comfortable and comfortable; her hair is most often worn loose. “I would like to be like a movie star of the last century - their images always impressed me”
The image is inspired by silent film heroines. A long dress with graceful drapery emphasizes all the advantages of the figure and visually stretches the silhouette, and the rich green color perfectly sets off the hair. Scarf beads successfully complete the image.
The glamorous style of the Hollywood diva allows for two bright accents. “In this case, we needed to emphasize the eyes and highlight the lips,” says makeup artist Elena Pocheptsova. - Nastya’s eye makeup was done using the smoky eyes technique, and red lipstick was used for the lips. By the way, all shades of red are acceptable for such an image - from scarlet to burgundy. "
“We decided to get away from the dark color and give the hair a shade of ripe sweet cherry, which instantly emphasized the green color of Anastasia’s eyes,” says stylist Dmitry Magin. “Nastya made an elongated caret so that her curly hair looks neat and beautiful even without styling.” During photography, the hair was twisted around the middle tongs - for the effect of the Hollywood wave. Nastya was pleased with the result: “The stylists helped me learn how to create a gorgeous look with the help of simple tricks.” “NOW I KNOW HOW IT IS EASY AND SIMPLY TO BECOME LIKE A FILM STAR!”
Natalya M. 41 years
Jacket, blouse and pants Marina Rinaldi, beads and earrings Carolee
IN THE REAL LIFE
Government Manager. There are a lot of shapeless clothes in the wardrobe; hair is usually dyed in a bright blonde. “I know that classic style suits me. True, lately she did not pay much attention to clothes - she was complex about her appearance, although she really wanted to change in her soul ... "What prompted you to take part in the project? “Now a lot has changed in my life: I got divorced, changed my job and got a promotion,” Natalya admits. “I’m going to hide, I wanted to change my appearance, I tried to experiment with my hair and style of clothes, but I was not satisfied with the result of changing the image.”
The pastel gamut perfectly refreshes the complexion, and the classic elegant cut of clothes suits the figure of the heroine as well as possible. We note separately: the advantage of the selected set is in the combination of different textures and fabrics: soft tweed (jacket), shiny silk (top) and smooth wool (trousers). The pearl jewelry complements the set - an eternal classic! - will never go out of style. We also focus on shoes. We strongly advise Natalya to wear high heel shoes. The heel immediately changes posture and gait! The main thing is to choose a comfortable shoe. Another recommendation: to abandon baggy, shapeless things in favor of well-tailored clothing. Fabrics should be dense, with a small proportion of elastane (for a better fit), warm colors.
The whole range of beige-brown-gray shades is ideally suited to the new elegant image of Natalia. To emphasize the eyes, the makeup artist used a brown eyeliner, and then blend it. “If you prefer a restrained style, lipstick, like blush, it is better to choose neutral shades,” advises Elena Pocheptsova.
For many years, Natalia was painted in blonde. And partly she was right in her choice. “Blonde suits her very much, so we decided not to change the color dramatically, but only to give the hair a noble ash color,” says Dmitry Magin. Stylists made a haircut for Natalia on the base of the square. Then the hair was dried, pulled and twisted on the tongs to create the desired volume. “Every woman wants professional stylists to work on her image, and even more so - get on the pages of a glossy magazine. My dream came true! - the heroine of the project admitted. - I changed and became exactly the woman who I really am. Thank!"
To summarize the reincarnation In this image, Natalia looks and feels natural. We are sure that the advice of stylists will not be in vain and our heroine will change for the better, because when a person likes himself, others feel it and perceive him in a new way. "A NEW IMAGE FITS ME 100%! "I FEEL MYSELF CONFIDENT, BEAUTIFUL AND DESIRED!"
Mariana M. 37 years
Marella jacket, Haute Hippie blouse, Levi’s jeans, beads and bracelets - property of the stylist
IN THE REAL LIFE
Art director of the magazine. Minimum makeup, casual clothes - Mariana’s casual style. “I finished the experiments with short haircuts at the age of 18. I consider it a luxury to spend more than five minutes on styling: lately I’ve been just picking my hair up, not knowing what else to do with it ”What prompted you to take part in the project? “Probably a midlife crisis. For me, it is expressed in the following: what was previously dreamed of has already been achieved. And new clear goals have not yet been set. Therefore, you try everything new: emotions, projects, music, travel. It’s logical that I wanted a change in appearance. ”
For a modern active girl, a dynamic urban style is suitable. Accents and catchy accessories are allowed. The graphic combination of black and gold looks bright and expressive. A strict jacket over a translucent blouse decorated with bugles is sexy, and Mariana should not be afraid of this. Plus skinny jeans, a high heel - and the image is complete! The best part is that the created image is quite universal: in this form you can go to the cafe and to the party. In the framework of the proposed style, the heroine can come up with many interesting combinations and combinations.
The image of a naughty young girl involves a minimum of makeup, so the main thing in such a make-up is to make the perfect tone and outline the eyes and lips. To make up the lips, the makeup artist used a soft, natural shade of lipstick, which created the effect of natural lips with a clear contour.
For Mariana, a plum color and a bob-haircut were chosen. For many years, our heroine did not dare to cut her hair, but stylists, given the curly texture of the girl’s hair, suggested a radical change in length. “This haircut looks perfect on curly hair,” says Dmitry Magin. For shooting, Mariana specially pulled out hair with irons and ruffled them a little, but a stylish hairstyle will not cause trouble in everyday life. Now, to style her hair, Mariana will need only two things: a hairdryer and a little styling. “I am very comfortable with a new head,” Mariana admits. - Now I spend only 5 minutes on everyday styling, the evening version - I just straighten my hair. The main thing is that with a new hairstyle I can be different! ”
To summarize the reincarnation This image came to Mariana one hundred percent. She really began to look and feel younger. Maintaining a new image is not difficult, in addition, she will be able to show her creativity in her hair and clothes.
“I AM LIKED IMMEDIATELY! FRIENDS AND FAMILIES SAID THAT I LOOK LIKE MUCH YOUNGER AND THIS CANNOT BE JOYFUL! ”
Irina K., 37 years old
Twin-Set dress, beads - property of the stylist
IN THE REAL LIFE
Print Manager. For many years, Irina did not change her style: plain sweaters, trousers and a long braid. "To live away from the city bustle of the carefree life of a young provincial young lady is my unrealizable dream, which I was able to get closer to, thanks to this project."What prompted you to take part in the project? “Colleagues have repeatedly told me:“ Ira, you need to do something with the scythe. ” However, I was comfortable, and I was not ready for the changes. But, having learned about the DO project, she thought: when, if not now? And, you know, I have never regretted my decision. "
A long flowing dress with frills fits perfectly into the romantic image of our heroine. At the beginning of the experiment, Irina admitted: “I am rather a conservative person - I don’t follow the fleeting fashion, but the idea to return to the past, to the images of the 19th century, seemed interesting to me.” Thin silk with a delicate floral pattern sets off the whiteness of her skin. Irina dresses very well, so our advice is that she should wear them more often. In everyday life, a dress can be combined with a knitted cardigan or a soft jacket. But it is better to refuse black color - in favor of lighter shades. Fabrics are best chosen light and natural, such as cotton, silk and velvet.
A romantic image is created using light textures that can give your face a healthy glow. To emphasize the natural beauty and femininity as much as possible, you should focus on the eyelashes (voluminous mascara will do this task perfectly), highlight the lips with neutral lipstick. The final touch is a blush of a soft pink hue.
Irina protects the length and natural color of her hair. Stylists did not resort to radical measures, only a little toned hair. “Due to this, Irina’s hair color has become more saturated and deeper,” comments Dmitry Magin. “I admit, the decision to even shorten my hair a little was not easy. But, looking at herself in the mirror during the process of transformation, she resigned herself to the “loss”. Probably, deep down I even wanted a change. I really like the new look! ” - Irina shares her impressions. Stylists gave the hair a new shape, preserving the length as much as possible, then dried it, wound it on the tongs and loosened it, whipping the curls with hands.
To summarize the reincarnation
The most important result for Irina was the understanding that one should not forget about herself, even for the sake of her beloved husband and children. You can always find time for yourself. Even if she does not wear long silk dresses every day, it is important and necessary to realize her femininity.
“THE TRANSFORMATION turned out to be IMPORTANT TO ME. I UNDERSTANDED THAT I NEED TO SPEND TIME FOR YOURSELF ”
Julia A. 35 years
Max Mara blouse and pants, bracelet - property of the stylist
IN THE REAL LIFE
Sales Director: Julia’s wardrobe is dominated by classic things in soothing colors. Hair wears in a dissolution. “I decided to bring a little adrenaline to my life. "To sit in the chair of a master who can do whatever he wants with your image - it feels like a parachute jump."What prompted you to take part in the project? “I used to lead an active lifestyle: I jumped with a parachute and rode windsurfing ... And in recent years I have lived only at work and at home. The sentence “DO” was perceived as a possible adventure. I wanted to shake myself. I’m glad: I received a positive charge of energy from participation! ”
Laconic silhouette and rich color - the perfect solution. The Pierre Cardin-style trouser set is expressive in itself, therefore it does not require complicated accessories. Plus, it reflects the bold character of the heroine, who is not afraid of experiments. Julia herself is a bright girl, she goes with all the saturated shades - from blue to orange. The stylistics of the 60s gives a special charm and playfulness to the image, besides, according to the heroine, she always liked films with Audrey Hepburn: “A little daring style, new silhouettes that personify youth and independence, I always liked.”
A graphically clear haircut, as a rule, requires a bit of aggressive makeup, but Julia wanted her look to be softer. As a result, the makeup artist performed the arrows, shading them with purple shades, and emphasized her lips with a warm coral shade of lipstick to match the clothes. But it is worth noting: Julia is a girl of the summer type, so she will go and cold shades.
For a long time Julia wears long hair. “After the divorce, I was not up to it: I raised a child and built a career,” our heroine admits. “But now is the time for change!” Stylists took the girl’s words as a call to action and decided to radically change her image. “We made a rather short haircut - a square with an extension to the face,” Dmitry Magin explains. “For the first time in her life, Julia agreed to cut off her bangs, which, as it turned out, are very suitable for her.” A new hairstyle instantly gave the girl a mischievous look. “I feel like dropping a few years. Now I’m definitely starting a new life! ” - sure Julia.
“A NEW IMAGE GIVES ME THE RIGHT TO HOPE THAT THIS SPRING ME IS WAITING FOR MANY INTERESTING MEETINGS!”
