In the morning she only has time to spend two minutes on her makeup. Her favorite makeup product is powder and she said she hates her nose. Cassie, welcome to Mummy Makeover. Hi Cassie!
Cassie Berwick: Hi Sarah!
Sarah Jagger: Cassie, tell me a little bit about yourself.
Cassie Berwick: I am 26 years old. I've got baby boy Coupe Ben who is two-months-old and I work in ACMIN.
Sarah Jagger: Little Ben -- is he giving you any time to spend on your personal grooming?
Cassie Berwick: Oh! At least two-minutes-a-day! Bless him!
Sarah Jagger: Now your makeup, is there anything that you'd like to take away from today?
Cassie Berwick: Well, I really like the color green but I don't know how to apply it and I am not really, really sure if it suits my skin. So if someone could show me, that'd great!
Sarah Jagger: I'd love to use green on you. And your hair, are you thinking about a different style?
Cassie Berwick: I'd like something different. I need something different. It's been the same for a long time.
Sarah Jagger: Well, let us go and introduce you to Gary. Cassie, meet Gary.
Cassie Berwick: Hi! Nice to meet you.
Gary France: Come in, have a seat.
Cassie Berwick: Thank you!
Sarah Jagger: Now Gary, Cassie is looking for something a little bit different. She has had this style for a while and really wants to try something different. So I'll leave you guys to talk about it.
Gary France: Okay! Alright, hi Cassie, how are you managing your hair at the moment?
Cassie Berwick: Really most of the time, I just get it back in a pony tail.
Gary France: Okay, so you just wake up and do that?
Cassie Berwick: Yeah! And that is it.
Gary France: Go on with your day. That's really lament incident, but I think what it'll be nice as if, as if we can give you a haircut or redesign the shape in someway that you can still do -- have minimum fuss with it but you've got something softer and a little bit more interesting.
Cassie Berwick: Yeah, that'd be ideal.
Gary France: I see you've got some color in your hair at the moment, is this something you've been doing yourself or -
Cassie Berwick: It's a bit of a mixture. Some of these are from the hair dressers and then after I had Ben, I did attempt a couple times to color myself. It didn't exactly go as it's planned.
Gary France: Okay, so I think once we've completed the haircut, we'll then do a little bit of review on your color and I think we could really improve that as well, give you something really nice and rich and shiny mixture. How do you feel about that?
Cassie Berwick: That sounds great.
Gary France: Okay.
Sarah Jagger: So, Cassie has her hair washed before returning for some dramatic surgery on her hair.
Gary France: So, Cassie we're going to just basically start the haircut through the underneath. We're going to reduce this weight from around here but then keep some softness through there and all of this area, we're going to just drop over some soft layers and leave it much longer and softer through the front here.
Sarah Jagger: Cassie's hair has suffered since having her baby boy. But over the next hour, that's going to change. A blow dry and next, time to repair the DIY color.
Gary France: Paolo is a top colorist within Toni & Guy. So we've just cut the hair Paolo but I just feel she needs a bit more color. Any suggestions?
Paolo Barattini: Yeah, well, what we're going to do with Cassie's hair is we're going to play with the color and try to make something quite easy to maintain that just give a little bit of vibe to the haircut. I'm going to try to make it quite rich and we're going to put some depth through the fringe to make it a little bit deeper. We're going to use some reddish-brown through the rest of the hair just to make it mess and glossy.
Gary France: That sounds great, let's get cracking.
Sarah Jagger: Paolo has got a lot of work to do. First, she has to apply the different layers of colors and then it is a long wait under the dryer. Cassie doesn't mind that out-of-this-world headgear, at least she gets to put her feet up.
Wow Cassie, you're completely different. I am noticing a color change and quite a funky cut. Gary, what have you done?
Gary France: Well, if you remember when Cassie came in, she'd just tie all her hair back in a pony tail and so we wanted change that, we wanted to give her something that we can soften out through the underneath. She had a very wispy fringe before. We wanted to give a bit more of a statement to that. So we just cut about a little asymmetry very subtly and left these longer panels here which we did a change of color on and just evened the rest with the color. I think it's beautiful.
Sarah Jagger: I love these little tips of golden through the ends. Cassie, what do you think?
Cassie Berwick: I think it just looks amazing, the cut is fantastic. I love the color and it just looks so shiny.
Sarah Jagger: A happy customer. Great! We've done your hair. Let's go on to your makeup. Cassie, we spoke this morning and you told me that you wanted to know how to use green eye-shadow, why green?
Cassie Berwick: I don't wear a lot of green and I think it suits me and there is a lot of green makeup around, but I just, I don't know how to use it.
Sarah Jagger: There is an easy way to use bold eye-colors and that is to concentrate the color just around the lash line. What I'd like to do first is to even out your skin tone slightly, just get rid of any redness full speed; a compact makeup is nice and easy, and a little bit of powder just to set that.
A translucent powder is best because it's not going to change the color of your makeup or your skin in anyway. I think your eyebrows are pretty good the way they are. I like the color, I like the shape. I am going to set them in place with a clear eyebrow gel. Let's define the top of your eyes using dark-brown eye-pencil, just soften that down. Now sheer minty greens or any kind of pale color like this, when used as a wash over the entire eye, all the way up to the eyebrow, never come out the depth of the color that you see in the palettes. You can wash this as a base all the way up to the brow. I really want to just make this inner corner of the eye a little bit brighter by taking that minty green.
The deeper more emerald green, needs to be applied around the lashes using a small brush. Now I am applying a waterproof mascara and it's really quite jet black. I think it's important to balance a very bright eye color with quite a lush of mascara. The less blush that you can use, the better. What a tiny bit does and I use my hand to tap off any excess. As it brings out the shape of your cheek bones, without being looking too flushed. Okay Cassie, now your brief was simple; you wanted a new hair, a green eye-shadow. This is what you look like this morning, and this is what you look like now. What do you think?
Cassie Berwick: I just look so different, I can't believe it. I love the eyes, I love them. And I can't wait to try it at home.
Sarah Jagger: The eyes suit you, the green eye-shadow suits you. Well, thank you so much for joining us on Mummy Makeover.
