Monthly Makeover: New Year, New You
Serethia Crawford after the makeover
Serethia Crawford, 50, said she came to AY “looking for a new me.” As an associate broker in Hot Springs, appearance plays a large part. “A lot about real estate is face recognition,” Crawford said. She is known for her long hair, which was almost waist-length when we began. “My husband and I will celebrate our 30th anniversary this month, and he loves my hair long. The shortest it’s ever been is shoulder-length.” Crawford wanted to maintain her long locks, but update her look for the New Year with a fresh, youthful, easy-to-manage style.
Kristin Babb, stylist at Clay Roots Salon gave Crawford a younger look by adding long layers throughout to enhance body, taking a bit of the length off and creating some face-framing layers for added shape. Babb styled Crawford’s cut with one of her favorite smoothing products — Moroccan Oil — which adds shine and reduces frizz. She blow-dried it with a round brush for lift; flat ironed it to smooth frizz, and then curled the ends to add bounce.
Ericka Rash, makeup artist at Clay Roots Salon, used a variety of bareMinerals products to give Crawford a natural look to enhance her great skin and emphasize her beautiful eyes. She started with the Skin Rev-er Upper, which smoothes skin and prepares it for makeup. Rash then applied Prim Time primer to smooth fine lines; followed by “Summer Bisque” concealer with an SPF 20; Mineral Loose Powder Foundation in medium beige; blush in “Laughter”; and a mixture of various bright eye shadows to highlight the eyes. She finished with a Hydrating Mineral Veil finishing powder to keep the makeup in place, followed by lengthening mascara.
