Oh my gosh, oh my goodness gracious! This might be one of the coolest sites I've ever stumbled upon. I'm a piggyback Real Simple reader. What does that mean? A close friend of mine here in Austin swaps her Real Simple's for either my Glamour or Women's Health. It's a great way to save money when buying a subscription and it's something I've been doing for years with close girlfriends. So back to today's story...
This site is amazing. Upload a pic and just start your own personal makeover magic! Here's just a brief list of some of the changes you're able to make via Real Simple's Beauty Makeover:
- hair style
- hair color
- lip color
- eye color
- blush or bronzer
- mascara color
I mean truly, the list goes on and on. I had so much fun playing with different makeover scenarios that I just had to share some with you! I spent the time uploading an image an adjusting it, via Real Simple's easy to follow directions. I've taken a snapshot of that screen below just to give you an idea. The closer you get to really outlining your features, the more realistic the virtual makeover will seem. And yeppers, those are actually my own lips below.
If you're in the market for a new summer 'do or are gearing up for that perfect fall cut, I really suggest you check out this site first. Without further ado, let's see RWD in all her makeover glory below...
Here's RWD toying with some blonde hair color. I've always wondered what it would feel like being a striking blonde lady. Truthfully, I don't know if it's for me, plus I've never died my hair (virgin hair is so much more affordable...maybe one day!) I loved the top two images with bangs but RWD Hubby gave them a vote of 'so-so.' I love my honest man. He said he liked the bottom right which reminds me of Lauren Conrad and is most like my own hair. I guess that's a good thing! Moving along...
My second favorite feature of this splendid makeover site is that you can toy with makeup ideas. You can see on the left photo that I'm rocking some everyday makeup. In the right image, I have everything from contacts to blush to bronzer to purple eye shadow...but surprisingly enough, it kinda just 'works!'
Lastly, here's are the hubby's top two hair style choices! Is anyone else out there as surprised as I am? Oh my gosh, first of all, hubby is a big Angelina Jolie fan (looks, not life) so the left option came as no surprise. The right option...the short bob, about knocked me off my office chair. I kept saying, 'Really? No, really?' He just laughed and laughed! It's totally Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction, right? Also, check out the makeup job on the left photo. I'm loving the green eyes and green shadow. The kicker? Real Simple supplies you with a direct link to purchase any of the products you use in the makeover...cha-ching!
Well, hopefully you have as much fun with this site as I did. I literally just spent the last hour playing with different hair styles and makeup colors and am sad to say it's time to get back to work. Let me know how your makeovers go because I'm sure we can all attest to the fact that a free makeover is a great makeover! Cheers and enjoy!
