Hello Friends and welcome to another video, this week I’m gonna be getting a so called “perfect” makeover based on my features Aka my skin tone, hair color, eye color ,and face and body shape. Growing up I always used to see these articles in teen magazines with titles like how to dress for your body type or What haircut flatters your face shape or which lipstick goes with your skin’s undertones and though I would often read them I never really applied them to my style choices opting instead for then long hair frosted eyeshadow and late 2000s miniskirts and Henle shirts And now what I would call my comfortable vampire aesthetic now, obviously I don’t a hundred percent buy into the idea that you have to wear certain things Just based on people’s advice on what goes well with your features But I thought it would be interesting to try and get a head-to-toe makeover based off of these commonly held Conceptions to see one how different it is from what I usually do and two if there’s anything I can incorporate To flatter me-self more that I also actually like so with a combination of some research and some help from a couple of experts hairstylist and youtuber Brad mondo and style guru Stacy London I’m gonna be getting a new hairdo a new outfit and a new face of makeup all designed to flatter me Well, specifically my body and also my face. To New York City we go. So first up is hair So I’m here in New York City with Brad Mondo Brad: Hi! who is a hair stylist and a Youtuber you may know him from such hits as hair dresser reacts to America’s Next Top Model Makeovers ‘who’s better me or her?’ but he’s also done a couple of videos About like the best haircuts for your face shape and the best hair color for your skin tone So I figured he’d be the perfect expert to help me on my journey. Yes. I’m so excited to your hair This is gonna be amazing and we’re gonna make it perfect for your skin tone for that face shape, honey That doesn’t mean we’re gonna have to say goodbye to the gray hair. But you know, we had like a good month Uh-huh. I had like a good like five or six weeks with his hair and I’m feeling good. It’s unreal. Yeah, it has been real We’re gonna say goodbye today So first up was the cut, which I wanted to get to suit my face shape got to pull this hair off your face We’re gonna accentuate her good parts and diminish the bad parts There’s no bad parts, but the sideburns is what he means. From what I can tell there are six basic face shapes You can have combinations or variations of them. But these are the six that people usually start from they are oval oblong round Heart-shaped square and diamond to me you definitely have more of a heart-shaped face because your chin kind of goes inwards to a point And then it kind of gets wider on the top so the ideal face shape is an oval for a female because it’s Symmetrical all way around with the same width at the forehead and at the chin given the fact that I have a heart-shaped face The idea behind a perfect haircut would be to give the illusion that I’m actually an oval What I want to do is take your hair up to around the collarbone. Ooh we ran out a little bit of layering around her face just to kind of accentuate the jaw more keep all the weight kind of heavy down here to bring attention down here and then keep the side part the way it is. Perfect So before the cutting began, we had to get my hair wet which was a bit more of a challenge than we anticipated. First we had a sink malfunction I don’t think it work. Oh and then when we found a usable sink, can you fit back there? Girl, it was a pretty tight squeeze for Brad’s thighs. I Don’t that’s gonna get high. It’s like okay. Oh, it’s waking me up. Oh, yeah Oh, that’s what I like to feel we go. And then we were ready to commence the cut. I love chopping off hair It’s so satisfying almost awesome. You had it short. So the last time I cut my hair was December of 2016. Sh*t. Know that you’ve done a bunch of America’s Next Top Model like makeover reactions but I love when they like cut it off and like hand it to the girl and she’s like: Nahahahahah like hysterically crying. ‘Cassandra why you crying?’ HI love my hair. I’m not sure that my cut was ANTM level dramatic, but we were actually getting rid of a fair amount of hair Ooh yes it looks so good I’m gonna shave it up for this so that would be a surprise But listen if it suits my face shape, I guess we must we didn’t actually end up doing any shaving that day But we did end up getting to that long bob length He had described so we just finished cutting for the most part We’re gonna blow dry it and then I’m gonna do a little bit more refining. I’m very excited about the length I feel like a lot lighter the ends have been living for a while. Like the ends are- They’ve been living. They’ve been dying. Yeah. They’ve been dying Okay, so what’s next bronze the color now the best part the most fun part which we based around my skin’s Undertones, which are the colors that come from underneath your skin to affect its overall hue These are mostly interpreted as being either warm toned aka yellow, peach or golden or cool toned aka blue, pink or red but there are also a couple of combination wildcard undertones like neutral and olive and honestly I’ve never been able to figure out what exactly my undertones are I know that in your video where you were like talking about how to figure out your skin tone You said to like look at the veins on your arm. Yeah, what’s that about? So usually blue is cool and greener veins is warmer tones So looking at my wrists my veins do seem kind of blue which would mean that I have cool undertones But I also see a little bit of green in There or like at least teal so we decided to rely more on my face than on my wrists I mean, I definitely see paint in your skin, but I also see warmth So what I’m gonna say is that your skin is neutral but more on the cool side Basically, that means you can pretty much pull off any hair color. Oh, no So Brad decided that we should just warm me up a little bit with some lighter brown highlights, you know Just that really pretty sunkissed natural looking color. That’ll make you look really healthy and glowing. I’m down for that We’re still gonna keep her in the brown family not too too light, but it’s nothing to be different than what you have now He started off by bleaching the spots where we wanted the highlights to go ‘we’re paintin girl.’ We’re just doing some Bob Ross. We had to deal with my natural dark hair as well as the old gray dye So overall the bleach was definitely the most time consuming step. Tyler:”How would you cut my hair?” “No, no, I like what you have going on. Like I like no I” (panics) Saf: Well, just because if you guys see what Tyler looks like at this very moment So returning to my hair journey, hello, we finally finished applying the bleach oh You are getting blonde and your hair lifted just like perfectly. so all we had left to do was to rinse I never thought I’d be a blonde and yet here we are and add Some Brown back in. Brad: we’re definitely gonna tone her, make it a lot darker than it is. So it looks natural still. These are the oh my god Wow But unfortunately, we were running out of time because the YouTube space closes like right at 9 p.m We’re the time crunch girl speeds scalp massage. I’m a fan. Can you just like take a moment to appreciate my stance right now? I’m completely horizontal in like an only moderately sexual way Brad:makeover video cut sexual Saf: It’s more like gone ob/gyn prenatal stance aside. We were getting close to the birth of my new hairdo I’m very excited. It’s gonna be a change. That’s what life’s about right change Evolution a personal journey yet towards death and with that done we had to go Thank you YouTube for letting us film here, but we’re about to get kicked out So we’re gonna head to Tyler’s sister’s apartment nearby to finish off the job. I promised Brad. We’re not trying to abduct you Alright, we’re here and Bradish is putting a second toner I mean just a darken it up just a little bit more and then we’re gonna go in for the finishing cut we once again ran into some trouble trying to actually wash my hair which Staying true to form required some contorting and also some ab exercises My core’s woking. then it was time for some final snips and layers a quick blow-dry a few curls and an LED panel To just make for a little bit more of a dramatic reveal. Brad: I can’t see with these glasses on (Laughing) But it’s fashion. And then it was finally time for me to see my perfect hair Wow It’s definitely very different from what we started with, but I really like it I love the length the length is everything and I like these little pieces. Oh, it looks really good No, I just I just look I’m hello So in the end the layered long bob that we ended up with brings more weight to around my chin and it has a little bit of a Side-swept bang to take away from my forehead and the lighter brown highlights have both warm and cool tones to vibe with my neutral complexion All right, so you would say this definitely fulfills the requirement of a hair makeover that’s suited to my features Honey one hundo Posent. Thank you so much for having change. You killed it. Thank you. Thank you That was we both killed it a week high five for a strong makeover So that took care of our perfect haircut, but next up we needed to find our perfect outfit So I’m here with style guru Stacy London. Who’s gonna help me figure this out. Stacy:Well, we’re gonna try we’re gonna try so basically I’m looking for the “Perfect outfit” that will flatter my physical attributes the best, you know Sort of like take into account my body shape and my skin tone and like my complexion coloring that type of stuff Yeah
So Stacy who’s been a stylist for many years and was one of the hosts of the TV show what not to wear is Definitely aware of these types of feature driven clothing rules But her actual personal guidelines for style are more open-ended every item of clothing Every piece of makeup every way you cut your hair which looks great By the way, thank you has to do one of two things. That’s the criteria it has to be have a use value for you and your closet and it should bring you joy at least one but Ideally both I don’t know if you can read my mind necklace, but it does say being perfect It does it’s quite nice, but for the purposes of this video I do just want to be like a set of features kind of like a glorified mannequin Okay, so let’s start with the first thing. How do you dress now? I would call my current style comfortable vampire Like I said, that is when I have not heard Yeah So right off the bat Stacy let me know that she thought my complexion was suited to more color than I usually go for Stacy: you have incredibly beautiful skin tone You have big eyes in this this color of your hair All of this lends itself to color and one thing that people used to do This is like so 80s is to tell you like what season you are based on your color Saf: I was hoping you’d bring this up because I have never been able to figure it out Stacy: that’s because people aren’t seasons. seasons are seasons right? Saf: There are a lot of old school metaphors that are used when categorizing one’s features There are the seasons for complexions which Stacy mentioned as well as fruits and vegetables used when referring to your body shape Whenever I try to use these metaphors I feel like I’m always stuck between autumn and winter for coloring because I have dark hair, but pale skin And I usually guess pear for body shape since I have small boobs, but a decent sized badonk, okay? I know you don’t want to do these things Yes, would you tell me what season and what fruit I would be that someone else would say, okay? Stacy: I would guess that somebody would say that you’re an autumn, okay Saf: Which generally implies that I have warmer skewing coloring with dark hair and brown eyes Stacy: And because I can’t see your body shape yet. I can’t tell you what fruit you would be. You’re also not a utensil So I’m never gonna call you a spoon or a fork or knife. Saf: I don’t know. What is which one is that? Stacy: Listen, I I’m an old dog. I’ve heard every trick so in order to truly figure out which fruit or I guess utensil I am we’ve got to take this sweatshirt off and put you in something else and take a look at the shape of your Body, all right. So I have my tank top on. Stacy: you actually have my tank top on. That’s true Ah, it’s her tank top. Stacy: So here’s the thing. I’m looking at your body and it’s pretty straight up and down, right? So I’m not gonna call you a knife. I’m not gonna call you I don’t even know what’s a straight up-and-down fruit a rhubarb, a celery? That’s not a fruit But still it’s um, in the edible area Well, you don’t curve down at the bottom, so I wouldn’t call you a banana either Saf: So from the front Stacey concluded that I was more of a knife, but once I turned to the side She got a better view of the rump.
Stacy: you’ve got a great high ass. (Oh, thank you.) Okay, so we want to fly I mean these jeans also just get a look at this. This is what happens when you’re young. There’s no puckering here This is this be I miss these days. I gotta be honest with you now I’m looking at that and I would say oh, okay Maybe you’re a little bit more than you carry your weight on your bottom half but what I would definitely say Is that your weight is not on your top hat? No, right it’s not there, but the I mean But that’s not to say you don’t have good boobs because you do One of the things that you have in your favor as Dora licks your feet is that you have nice broad shoulders so what you may not have in terms of chest size is still very complimentary in terms of balancing your bottom half with your tops But I don’t see a defined waist and that’s the one thing that I would say would most Determine the way that I would look at your body Right is that we need to create a waistline for you to have what we call a classic female form Which is hourglass, now That doesn’t mean you have to have it but generally speaking That’s the way clothing is cut for women so much like my haircut was meant to oval eyes my heart-shaped face stacy recommended that we find cuts that changed my rhubarb shape into more of an Hourglass shaped fruit or vegetable like a deformed tomato or something or what about a bok choy It’s kind of got like a bootie and then like some hair on top, that’s me So I went off to find myself some waist defining garments This is the part of what not to wear where I get to shop by myself Except Stacy doesn’t come and help me at the end You could text her though. Stacy: So now that we’ve established your shape We kind of know what we want to be looking for The easiest most Universal way to create a waist is to find something like an easy dress like a fit-and-flare dress Saf: This is kind of interesting. It definitely has like a little waist cinching action All right I’m gonna try this on I think this is like the right type of garment that Stacy was Recommending but I feel like the fit is just not perfect. Like the waistline is almost too high The sleeves are a little tight, but I think with color and I we’re on the right track in terms of color recommendations Overall Stacy mostly agreed with Brad and that she thought my skin was pretty neutral Stacy: You don’t have a lot of yellow undertone in your skin You don’t have a lot of blue undertone in your skin easily I can see you in dark purple in Burgundy in dark green. This is interesting There’s some shine. There’s some olive green or muted green There is a stitch at the waist I think now I don’t think this one fits me quite right either first off My bra is just like out and second off. It doesn’t really flair on the bottom It clings more which is not ideal. But I do kind of like the color and the beads it actually ended up being pretty tough to find a fit-and-flare dress that fit all of our specs so besides Fit-and-flare dresses Stacy had also mentioned that we could do like a wide-legged pant when you do a really skinny jean As opposed to something a little bit wider you wind up creating the visual effects that we see this More than we see your whole leg. Right? We want something that creates a longer line So we went on the hunt or wide-legged pant. Listen, I haven’t found it yet, but I smell it. Ryan: You’re like a really good shopping shark. “Oh,That’s good.” as a final note Stacy wanted to emphasize that things would look different with my new hair especially color wise Stacy: It’s not that your coloring dictates what colors you can wear but you are going to find that you pop more in certain neutrals and pop more in certain colors Based on the fact that you have a new hair color. Saf: This is true. I have not explored anything really I’ve only really come to your house with this new hair color. So well you came to the right place So after exploring a few stores, I found something pant like that I thought fit all of the guidelines All right So this isn’t a dress, but it does have a waist cincher Mechanism and it has these pant legs that are the same width all the way down and it’s green It’s a little bit of a pattern so I’m gonna try it on and see if it could be the one Alright, so this is my green stripe jumpsuit I don’t think I was expecting to like the stripes but I think I do and I do like this sort of like Muted but not too dark green color It is not a dress and it’s not really a fit-and-flare But the top is definitely fitted and then the pant legs are like straight down and not tapered at the ends So it’s hitting a lot of good stuff. I’m gonna text a pic of this to Stacy and see what she thinks alright
So it looks like Stacy likes this Jumpsuit, and she says wider leg and vertical line print makes you look like a tall glass of water Love the focus on the waist So let’s get this guy and then get some accessories to finish it off Stacy also recommended that we pick up some gold jewelry To go with my she wouldn’t call it autumn, but autumn complexion and she also suggested some flat or wedge sandals, so with the outfit purchased it was time for the final touch of our perfect makeover the makeup so for the makeup portion we decided to use the information we had gathered from Stacy and Brad and combine it with some research to Customize a look around my features. I read a lot of articles for this you guys I’m prepared So I think like the first feature we’ll be focusing on is the eyes So I’m gonna do my eyebrows really quick and then we can talk about how we are gonna flatter my eyes with eye shadow So there are two elements to consider here one is my eye shape and the other is my eye Color after looking at a bunch of photos. I’ve concluded that I have mildly Protruding eyes. I deduced this by looking at all of the possible. I shaped listed and then eliminating the other ones but they also harp on the fact that Protruding eyes have a lot of lid space which I do and the tips to flatter that type of eye shape are Basically, just like you can put a lot of stuff on your eyelid so I could have like a very large amount of eyeliner I can do some dark eye shadow I could do a smoky eye I could just really layer it on thick because I think the idea of doing your eye shadow According to your eye shape is to correct, whatever shape you have into more of like a neutral almond eye Besides that I have dark brown eyes and there are a few different eyes shadow colors that compliment brown eyes It seems like either you can go with like bold Shocks of color like cobalt blue or purple or you can do something a little gold ear like gold Copper and green so because the jumpsuit that we have is green I think I’m gonna stay in the like gold with a bit of greenish gold family and hopefully that’ll flatter my eyes and My outfit alright, so since the instructions were basically go ham. I shall go ham I can’t tell if I feel more complimented, but I’m definitely feeling more dramatic I’m also gonna be using this green color from the Pirates of the Caribbean Palette which we bought for a video and never made. All right. So this is a couple of eyeshadow colors on there, but Considering that I have protruding eyes. I shall go in for one more darker color. They said go ham I’ll give them a roast. This is a luau over here, hahaha So I’m gonna blend this out really quick and then just slap on some foundation and concealer And then we’ll move on to the blush and lipstick which is very contingent on my skin’s undertones. So we’ll talk about Those so once again both Stacy and Brad when looking at my skin said that I had overall neutral undertones but when I went to get a third opinion at Sephora by You know getting color I queued by their little face scanner They seemed to think I was neutral but slightly warm the color that they initially scanned was 2 y o7 Meaning like 2 tones of yellow away from medium, but after some swatching and testing we ended up settling on 1 y o7 So we tried a more neutral tone I think this looks better one of the tricky things about having a neutral skin tone. Is that with these makeup advice Articles a lot of them will just tell you you can wear whatever you want But I think in the spirit of having a slightly lighter hair and Stacy recommending me gold jewelry. I’m gonna continue down that Neutral but slightly warm path, so I’m gonna bring in some peachy blush It seems like peachy blushes are both like somewhat universally flattering But also if you have like warmer tones, you should kind of like stick with warm stuff is what I’m reading Alright, so as we can see I put a lot of that on I’m going to Just blend this out a little bit more so I can sort of diffuse it and then we’ll move on to the lips Following the trajectory of the color IQ and the blush we decided to continue down the slightly warm path Usually for warm undertones. They recommend orange based lipsticks like terra cottas or Corals or peaches. So I went for this brick color. Hello there to finish off the look I added some pretty thick eyeliner and a dash of dark green eyeshadow on the outer corner lower lash line alright So I think that is my full face of makeup based on my features all in all I’m pretty into this look I think that overall it’s not like crazy far off from what I do normally But I think that there are a couple of things that are different Mainly the amount of eye shadow that’s on my eyes and also like any sort of like lower lash situation So now that my makeup is done I think it’s time to put all three of the pieces of my perfect makeover together and see what I look like So this is my final Head-to-toe, perfect makeover Ryan: no longer a rhubarb. Saf: Now, I am a… Two radishes on top of each other?? Ryan: There you go Ryan: There you go Saf: this look definitely includes some elements that I do currently wear But there are also some things that are more new to me in particular The color palette from top to bottom is much warmer than I usually go I think in general this is more of just like a summer Sofia. Look I used to be a comfortable vampire now I’m a cinched garden gnome the shapes however I feel like I’ve at least dabbled in before I’ve had my hair this length before and despite the amount of like long sleeves Sweatshirts. I wear I’m not against cinching my waist Listen, I’ll give Stacy that this is like a nice human body shape But sometimes I like to dress up like a bat so maybe we’ll do half the time hourglass and you know the other half of the time just Flying squirrel in terms of what things from this makeover? I’ll incorporate going forward I’m not sure if I’ll really stick with the warmer color palette but I could definitely see myself keeping my hair short putting on some more eyeshadow when I get the chance and also Embracing wide legged pants, you look very comfortable. I am very comfortable Regardless of body shape that’s one thing about wide leg pants. I feel a little bit more like pajamas than skinny pants You’re so damn lucky You wear gym shorts every day What so all in all in terms of this being my perfect makeover? I do think that it complements my physical features and gets them a bit closer to being Ideal and it was a fun experiment overall There’s obviously the question of why these ideals or rules even exist and I think to touch on it briefly They’re related to instinctual preferences based on perceived fertility Geometry and also just like societal constructs, but I think that’s all a bit much to unpack in this video so for now I think we can just take them at face value and see them as more of a jumping off point for style or color Recommendations and not the end-all be-all of what you should wear or even what not to wear right Stacy Thank you guys so much for watching and a big thank you to Brad and Stacy for participating in this video Also, if you guys want to see more of this makeover process, yes It was a wild one head over to Brad’s channel because he’s taking some of this footage and making a new video out of it We got a lot of what a girl.
