EMF 2011: Ambush Makeover

An unsuspecting EMF-goer gets a celeb makeover.
The EMF 2011 festival-goers are definitely super-cute on their own, but who couldn’t use a makeover? We turned 30-year-old, Miami-based nurse Melissa Samuels over to our celeb glam squad, makeup artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis and hairstylist/salon owner Maisha Teacher for a superstar hair and makeup upgrade!

Melissa was on her way to the concerts, so Gomez-Duplessis gave her an ultra-glam red carpet look: ruby-red lips, smokey eyes and Old Hollywood brows. “I call this look ‘glam-xurious,” said Gomez-Duplessis. “And Melissa has the gorgeous skin to carry it!”

Teacher wanted to give Melissa’s hair a fun, youthful look, so she wound small sections around a curling iron and then pinned it underneath, creating a faux-bob. “I’ve never had short hair before,” said Samuels, “so now I know what it would look like. I think its amazing!” So do we.
