Breaking down the makeover that turned a wrestler into a beauty

Under Eye concealer, makeover on Trish Stratus
face makeover Toronto

I get so frustrated when I see a great magazine makeover and feel like I need CIA security clearance to be given the list of products used to create that image. It’s a mere tease to be told only how to “recreate this look.” That only  tells you some products that are likely to get you somewhere close to the final face. I don’t know about you, but I’m not satisfied unless I get the real shopping list.

A cover-shoot day with the gorgeous Trish Stratus is almost like getting a dose of truth serum. This down-to-earth beauty brings out the honesty in us all. I can’t help but come clean on the real cosmetic heroes behind her glowing look.

  • For skin and under-eye concealer, I used Cinema Secrets Cream Foundation in 303-66A and 302-65A
  • I prepped the lids to hold the shadow with Laura Mercier Eye Basics in both Wheat and Linen.
makeover on cheeks
  • Trish’s cheeks got a subtle flush using The Multiple cream stick by Nars in the colour Orgasm, followed by MAC’s cream colour base in Pearl Frost above on the upper cheek-bones to highlight. The same frost was whisked above the center of the cupid’s bow on the upper lip.
makeover on eyes
  • I prepped the lids to hold the shadow with Laura Mercier Eye Basics in both Wheat and Linen.
  • For skin and under-eye concealer, I used Cinema Secrets Cream Foundation in 303-66A and 302-65A
  • The brow was highlighted underneath with Shroom eyeshadow by MAC Cosmetics.
  • MAC Naked Lunch eyeshadow fills the first 1/3 of the upper lid, followed by Sable eyeshadow on the rest of the lid and into the crease.
  • The lid crease was then intensified with Espresso eyeshadow by MAC.
  • Why stop there when I could still pop a little extra on the outside 1/3 of the lid, using Sketch shadow by MAC.
  • I dabbed a mixture of Naked Lunch and Phloof shadow (both by MAC) in the tear-duct area above and below the eye.
  • Eyes are lined above by Annabelle’s Smoothliner eye pencil in Brownie. Then I used MAC Embark shadow to set the liner. The eyes are then lined below by Annabelle Smoothliner in Bronze, followed by MAC’s Mulch shadow to set it.
  • Eyes got their finish with Cover Girl’s Lashblast Mascara in Very Black, then an accent of lashes only on the outside, cutting a full strip of Ardell’s #110 in half.
makeover on lips

What are probably the most luscious lips on the planet needed only a natural tone to accent, so they were lined with Prestige’s Cameo coloured lip pencil, followed by Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Nude Velvet #125.
