So I just wasted about an hour tooling around on this makeover site I came across through a sponsor link in a daily e-mail blast. Since I lost track of time on it, I decided you might enjoy doing the same so I thought I would share. It is called Daily Makeover and it allows you to upload your own photo (or choose from the gallery of face models) and then try on all different kinds of hair styles, hair colors, makeup and even frickin' jewelry - as if I have this box full of jewels to choose from!
But regardless, I was able to see that the cute Taylor Swift shorty cut she's rockin' these days is NOT the look for me. I need some longer tresses to frame what may or may not be a heart shaped face - I haven't quite figured that out yet. It basically verified that my hairdresser has created a nice cut and color for me which was reassuring. It would come in handy the next time I have some fancy party or event to attend so I could try out up-do's and some bling in advance.
I don't really wear make-up since no one ever taught me how to apply it. But Carmindy - she of TLC's What Not To Wear - has her own blog on this site and I'm sure if anyone can provide teachable tips, she can. (I love that show - another major time suck for me if they are running a weekend marathon!)
There are all kinds of articles, celebrity look analysis, product reviews, makeover tips and beauty news to read in addition to the ever popular makeover simulator. Some stuff is free, some stuff requires a membership. When I signed up for my 7 day free trial it showed rates of $30 for a year's membership - there were shorter terms available too. Since daily beauty isn't all that important to me, I doubt I will sign up. But the test run let me try on some new looks without the stress.
So if you are considering a change or want to test out a new look for a holiday party, go register for your free week trial and experiment to your heart's content. It sure beats wearing that "not what you intended" cut & color at a holiday party.
