These Incredible Beauty Makeovers Will Blow Your Mind
Amazing before and after shots prove that skin can be transformed and in the most dramatic of ways
Who doesn’t love a makeover? Nobody that’s who. There’s just something so magical about seeing someone transform themselves in a way that makes them look and more importantly feel more beautiful than before.
Here at The Beauty Insider, we could look at makeovers for days. Once we’re finished exclaiming in wonder at the incredible changes we see, we always have questions. That is – how did this makeover happen? We can’t answer that in all cases – but we can provide the secret behind this phenomenal collection of Before And After images.
Check them out and see if there’s a beauty tip, trick or technique that might inspire you to kick start your very own makeover. If it helps you to love what you see in the mirror each morning, then heck, we’re with you all the way. Let’s go.
Chelsea Handler is a fan of pro-fractional laser. And who can blame her. The woman has achieved some pretty incredible results with this high-tech method. If you’re not across this type of laser it works by penetrating the skin in teeny tiny areas as opposed to more traditional lasers, which treat the entire face. They’re effective but considerably more uncomfortable and the down-time after treatment can be lengthy.
Pro-fractional laser though involves no such problems. It simply penetrates deep into the skin at various pre-programmed locations. This initiates the body’s wound healing response and voila – the clock is turned back and it’s hello makeover. It has the capacity to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, promotes collagen (the stuff that makes skin look full and plump) and evens tone. Just ask Chelsea!
Bridget Vogel is all about Retin-A. She shared her dramatic makeover pics to Pinterest. In the image on the left you can see Bridget is dealing with pimples, blackheads and breakouts, particularly around her chin and nose. On the right – after eight months of daily Retin-A – Bridget’s skin is smooth, fresh and clear as glass.
Retin-A, also known as Tretinoin, works by causing the skin’s outer layer to grow more quickly and be replaced with new skin cells, which helps to reduce the formation of blackheads, whiteheads, and other acne lesions. It’s also a dermatologist favourite for treating the signs of ageing, along with a whole host of other skincare concerns, including pigmentation. Talk to a skincare specialist if you think it could be the product you need.
This handsome rogue used the dermatologist-created skincare range Rodan + Fields. He opted for the Soothe collection of the range, which clearly did exactly what it’s designed to do – that is calm and soothe inflamed, reactive, sensitised skin. He used the products for just four months and hello – the results are epic. This is one impressive makeover.
Soothe is a four-step program that includes a gentle cleanser, a sensitive skin treatment, a rich, replenishing cream and a calming lotion with SPF to keep you safe in the sun.
Of course, it’s not always about skin. You can revamp your entire look by altering the shape, colour and even texture of your brows and in a very big way. A neat, richly-coloured brow will not only make your eyes look bigger and more sexy, it can alter the appearance of your entire face, making cheekbones seem higher and jaws more fine. Seriously. It can.
For that type of effect though you’ll need to see a well-respected pro who is at the top of their game. The above brows were handled by brow queen Amy Jean Linnehan of Amy Jean Brow Agency.
Whoah! Boosting your lip volume is a quick and easy to give yourself a whole new look and yet – it can be 100 per cent subtle. You can have a minimal amount of filler injected and nobody will ever be the wiser – what they will notice is that you look more youthful, fresh and yes, okay, we’ll say it, sexy.
Dermal Fillers are injected into the lips in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. Local anaesthetic cream or dental blocks may be administered for increased comfort. It’s not fun but it’s fast and the results are phenomenal. Again, ensure you see someone who specialises in this area, has solid qualifications, is well respected in the field and (this is an important one), is known for providing a natural look.
