We may be
cynical modern girls, but nonetheless...what's better than a fairy-tale-worthy makeover? Not much, we say...and apparently makeup artist/hairstylist/blogger/awesome human being Sunnie Brook feels the same way.
When one of her readers, Cassandra, reached out to the pro asking if she could give her a makeover in honor of her birthday, Sunnie went all out to make this mother of two feel like a total princess. She provided the hair, makeup, and fashion styling for a two-part transformation: a surfer-chic day look followed by a bohemian-glam evening ensemble.
We love this concept (and the awesome video that captures it, courtesy of director and food blogger Claire Thomas) for many reasons. First, it's always awesome to see women inspiring other women and supporting each other (and what better way to bond with your fellow ladies than with beauty products?), and second, we just love ourselves a good before-and-after!
Although Cassandra is gorgeous with no makeup and unstyled hair, seeing the step-by-step process that Sunnie and her team used to take Cassandra from fresh-faced beauty to L.A. glamazon is super-inspiring. From the simple bronzed eye makeup for day to that AWESOME evening updo (ever wonder how celebs get those pretty woven chignons? Apparently it's as simple as two twists and two knots: easy peasy!), this tutorial is chock-full of tips that are easy to replicate for your next day or evening date. Check out the video for an exact breakdown of how Sunnie gave lucky Cassandra her double makeover.
