Solve the worries of looking old with a young-looking hairstyle and complexion makeup!
Mikako Watanabe (60 years old), who is worried about looking old, is going to challenge the makeover this time. She aims to look “minus 5 years old” with haircuts and makeup.
On the day of the shoot, I decided to ask her to come with her usual natural makeup, and compare the before and after to see how much the hairstyle and makeup would change.
Person who challenges the makeover: Mikako Watanabe (60 years old)
” I saw an article about the before and after makeover and wanted to change myself, so I applied. I’m worried about the volume down at the top of my hair. I want to make a makeover and look as bright and young as possible. , I would like you to teach me how to make myself look younger, which can easily hide nasolabial folds, sagging, dark circles, etc.” (Mr. Watanabe)
Haircut: Takafumi Ishikawa
“The theme of this cut is a compact and simple short. Let’s make the neckline short and compact, and create a youthful hairstyle with volume on the top and back of the head.” (Mr. Ishikawa)
Makeup: Miho Suzuki
“Even if you just improve the color of your skin with makeup, it will give you a youthful impression. Now that we spend a lot of time wearing masks, the impression of the eyes is also important. I will introduce eye makeup that makes you look energetic.” (Mr. Suzuki) )
Casual with a long one-piece outfit using a vest
Once the theme of the makeover has been decided on youthful hairstyle and makeup, we will select the clothes for the photo shoot.
Mr. Watanabe says, “I don’t wear casual clothes very often,” but that’s a big makeover!
With the advice of stylist Mr. Kutaki, I decided to try coordinating a cute long dress with colorful dots and a knitted vest.
*This time as well, a set of haircuts and “beauty experience (nails, makeup, hair styling, photography)” will be held at the “Egao Beauty Salon”, a hair salon specializing in seniors.
*There are multiple images. If you are browsing on Yahoo, please check by sliding with “>” above the image.
Makeover Point 1: Compact Simple Short
After shampooing, the makeover starts with a haircut.
Watanabe’s hair problem is volume down at the top. However, this time, Mr. Ishikawa dares to cut from his neckline. Why on earth…?
“Certainly, volume at the top is an important point for a youthful hairstyle. If the top is cut too long, it will cause the whole hair to become flat when it grows out.On the other hand, if the top is too short, it will be difficult to create a roundness at the back of the head.”
According to Mr. Ishikawa, the key to determining the overall balance of short hair is not the length of the top hair, but the neckline.
“If you tighten the neckline so that it fits around the neck, the visual effect will make the back of the head look rounder. You can create a beautiful hairstyle from any direction, whether it’s from the side or from the side.It’s like sculpture or architecture to start from the base and gradually shave off the unnecessary parts.”
It seems that there is a technique to make the hairstyle look nice even in the cut of the neckline.
“If you cut the neckline in a straight line, it tends to look heavy, so leave a little space between the hair and cut it softly. It’s also important not to make the neckline too short, as some people tend to put it away.”
Although the name is simple, it is a compact simple short based on solid theory.
As Mr. Ishikawa declared, “A youthful hairstyle with a short and compact neckline and volume on the top and back of the head” seems to be able to transform into a wonderful look!
Makeover point 2: Cut the sides “up front”
Along with the volume of the top and crown, choosing a silhouette that suits your age is also a shortcut to a youthful hairstyle.
The front-hanging short haircut, which is cut longer from the back to the side, has the effect of making the face smaller and gives a mature impression, so it is a popular hairstyle for women of all ages.
However, according to Ms. Ishikawa, women in their 50s and 60s prefer a slightly higher front than a lower front.
“Especially for people with a long face, if the hair around the face is long, the vertical image will be emphasized. It makes the top look more voluminous, giving you a more youthful hairstyle.”
Makeover point 3: Weight your bangs and look youthful!
In order to see the overall balance, I cut the bangs after drying the hair with a hairdryer.
“Hair becomes more difficult to grow as we age. Each strand of hair becomes thinner, so thin bangs at the ends can make you look older. When cutting the bangs, cutting them too big will make them too light, so the key is to use the scissors vertically to cut them finely.”
After adjusting the length of the sides and top while looking at the overall balance, the compact simple short is complete!
Mr. Watanabe also smiled at the finish. Looking at it, Mr. Ishikawa said with a big smile, “Once you decide on your hairstyle, you feel better!”
Makeover point 4: Add luster with base makeup
Next is makeup.
I usually use professional make-up tools in the store for a makeover, but this time the theme is “you can do it yourself”.
So, this time, I decided to have Ms. Suzuki try to make a makeover using makeup tools that are commercially available on the mail order site .
“Since your skin is dry, first moisturize with a gel milk that contains serum ingredients to add luster to your skin,” says Suzuki.
On top of that, apply a skin-colored lotion that can be used as a foundation over the entire face to cover sagging and wrinkles.
For aging skin that tends to dry out, we recommend an emulsion type that contains moisturizing ingredients. Even people who are not good at foundation can use it easily.
“Furthermore, in places where shadows tend to appear, such as the mouth and eyes, apply a control color to fill in the difference in tone. , the overall impression of the face becomes brighter.”
Finally, finish with a powder foundation. One thing to keep in mind with base makeup is not to apply it too thickly.
“Be careful not to apply too much on the sides of your cheeks and the T-zone, where makeup tends to come off easily. The area around your eyes is particularly prone to dryness, so just apply the remaining amount to the puff.”
Makeover point 5: Palette & lip color up
Just like gloss, the point of youthful-looking makeup is to improve the complexion of the skin!
A makeup palette that includes blush, eyeshadow, and eyebrows is convenient because you can mix colors and use them in a variety of ways.
“The recommended eyeshadows for adult women are brown, gold, beige, and other colors that blend well with the skin. However, using only brown can make your skin look dull. , eyes look brighter
On the other hand, I apply cheeks so boldly that I wonder if I’m overdoing it.
“Stick blush that looks like a lipstick is recommended because it helps to maintain a natural complexion. Use a peach color that blends well with aging skin.In addition, use orange powder blush on the part that swells when you smile. Apply “smiling blush” to brighten up your complexion!To create a youthful impression, it is important to use blush skillfully to create a healthy face.”
If you choose a bright color that makes your lips look more complex, you will get a youthful impression.
Especially now with the corona wreck, we recommend a complexion lip that is hard to stick to the mask. The matte lipstick that fits softly on the lips is hard to remove and has moisturizing power, so it is perfect for mask makeup.
“For women in their 50s and 60s who tend to have dull skin, we recommend pinks that give an elegant and subdued impression, or oranges that make your complexion look good. I will use
Makeover point 6: Make your eyes look younger by improving your eyesight
Youthful look makeup, the last point is eye makeup.
“The eye area is an important factor that gives a youthful impression. If the eyebrows are long, the visual effect tends to make the eye look lowered. First, cut the growing eyebrows, then apply mascara, eyeliner, and eyebrow. Let’s improve your eyesight with these three items!”
Similar to eye color, eyeliner and mascara are basically natural brown.
“If you try to draw a straight eyeliner line, the hurdle will be high, so the point is to add a line that fills in the gap between the eyelashes. If you draw it, you can draw it well. Eyebrows can look ambiguous if you use only powder, so let’s add hair to the ends of the eyebrows.”
The makeup is now complete! Even with the same natural makeup, you can see that there is a big difference in the impression of the eyes before and after comparing the photos.
Makeover point 7: Asymmetrical nail and hand care
This time as well, I asked her to proceed with nail care at the same time as hair and makeup. Shape your nails, take care of your cuticles, and then apply your manicure.
Mr. Watanabe says he doesn’t usually paint his nails. “Should I take care of my cuticles regularly?” I asked manicurist Marie Hashimoto.
“Excessive cuticles prevent the penetration of moisture into the nails, which can cause them to become dry. Dry nails can lead to problems such as split nails, vertical lines, and hangnails. If you remove the cuticles, you can grow strong and beautiful nails, and it will also make your nails look beautiful,” says Hashimoto.
In this way, you can freely ask questions and consult about things you didn’t know about hair, makeup, nails, and other concerns unique to older women.
And while I was having a good time chatting with the staff, my nails were completed in no time (quickly)!
“Since the theme of the makeover is a youthful image, I chose asymmetrical asymmetrical nails that have a cute pop impression. The left hand is a fall color of Bordeaux, and the right hand is an orange nail with glitter. When doing it at home, if you’re right-handed, I think it’s easier to do it with a design nail on your left hand.”
After the nails are dry, apply a whitening sunscreen ( hand protector ) as a finishing touch. “Invisible gloves” firmly cover stains and wrinkles, making your skin transparent.
“In order to make your skin look youthful, this extra step after nail polish is surprisingly important! Hands are often visible, so it’s easy to feel your age, but compared to the face, I get the impression that many people don’t take care of it. After doing laundry, use hand cream to moisturize, and when you go out, use sunscreen to cover your skin.”
Haircut, make-up, nail, and all menus are now complete. The makeover is complete!
Minus 5 years old! Compare before and after images
Waiting for Mr. Watanabe, who changed into a long dress and knitted vest, was the staff’s cheers of “Wow, nice!” and “Cute!”.
Mr. Watanabe, who was worried about looking old, challenged “look minus 5 years old” with haircut and makeup this time. How rejuvenated were you?
Let’s compare before and after photos!
front (from the front)
The front is a compact and simple short with a narrowed neckline that makes your face and neck look neat. It has become a youthful hairstyle with volume on the top and back of the head.
After the makeover, cheek and lip make-up and eye make-up will make your face look bright and energetic.
side (from the side)
By cutting the sides upward, the hair that covered the face disappeared, giving a bright impression. The back of the head is more rounded and the hair looks more voluminous.
Comparing before and after, you can clearly see that even in profile, the complexion has improved with “smiling cheeks” and gorgeous lips.
back (from behind)
The amount of hair in the back was actually reduced by cutting it, but when I look at the photo, it looks more voluminous after the makeover, which is strange.
You can see that the neckline was loose before the makeover, but after the makeover, the neckline is tightened so that it fits the neck line perfectly.
Thanks to the gradation cut made by piling up the weight from the neckline, the front, side, and back, you can see it from any angle, and it is finished with a youthful hairstyle!
Enjoy the feeling of a model! Succeeded in rejuvenating minus 10 years old…!?
At the end, enjoy a photo shoot like a model. We asked Mr. Watanabe, who is rejuvenated and has a bright smile, about his impression of the makeover.
The theme this time was “Youthful looking hair and make-up minus 5 years old”.
“Emotionally, I would like to say that I am minus 10 years old! I was surprised to hear from Mr. Ishikawa that the length of the neckline is more important than the front and the top.I am very happy to have a bright and youthful hairstyle as I wanted. ”
Do you think you can master the young-looking make-up that Suzuki-san taught you?
“It may be difficult to recreate a professional make-up just by looking at it once, but after seeing it done with a commercially available product, it turned out beautiful enough, so I thought I would like to try it myself.”
“I thought the idea of having different colors for the left and right nails was novel and interesting. It was a refreshing day in terms of acquiring knowledge.”
How was the photo shoot after the makeover?
“I was nervous at first because I don’t usually get the chance to dress up like this and have my photo taken, but it was fun to experience the feeling of being a model. If you think ‘I want to change myself’ like I did, please try a makeover !”
