LEONIE, 33: FINANCIAL ASSISTANTSoft Skin Tone
We used chestnut highlights in flashes of red to give light and life. Leonie’s hair was cropped into a very short, choppy bob, leaving a little wispiness on the hairline to soften her features. Leonie had been using a foundation that was far too dark for her skin tone, resulting in a muddy look to her complexion. By using a much lighter shade, we made her look younger and fresher. The purples, violets and grapes suited her skin tone. She looked ten years younger and her natural, bubbly personality emerged.
“When I arrived at work the next morning it took me two hours to get from the front door to my own office – a successful makeover indeed! – Leonie”
