Christopher Hopkins is an absolute legend. At least when it comes to amazing makeovers. He was able to give a woman the lift she needed using the power of makeup.

About Christopher Hopkins, The Makeover Guy

There's a reason this talented stylist is so good at what he does. Based on his Facebook bio, he has been a makeover pro since the 1990s and it's clear that he has only gotten better with time.

Interestingly enough, Christopher didn't start off as a stylist. He explored the world of music as a singer and a cabaret entertainer. According to CDBaby, he set up his image design company at the age of 26 and over the years, he got more recognized as the makeover guy.

From appearing on TV shows to creating a YouTube account that now has nearly 200.000 subscribers, Christopher has certainly come a long way. And these days, he continues to do his magic on women who desperately need it.

A woman who had been dealing with a horrible tragedy looked to Christopher Hopkins to do what he could to help.

Katherine revealed that she had lost her son about three years prior and she had been coping with grief since then. However, she was ready to get back on her feet and one of the first steps she planned to take was to give her appearance a revamp.

@Marianne:

Looks fabulous. Love the great. You added shape and dimension to the color. But that makeup takes years and makes her face look slimmer too.

One therapist, Christy Beck, explained to QZ that this move can be considered "a form of self-care." She went on to point out that when a person is going through some trauma, feeling like they are doing something for themselves is very important.

In Dr. Vivian Diller's opinion, making these changes can be a person's way of getting back control in other parts of their lives when some areas feel out of control. It's therapeutic and can be a way to improve self-esteem.

Here are some helpful tips.

  • Don't ignore the brows: Keeping them groomed at all times can make a lot of difference.
  • Hair length: Anyone can rock long or short hair depending on what works. So it's okay to switch things up if what you have isn't working for you. For example, a long-haired lady who constantly has to always pull it back and rarely leave it down may consider a trim.
  • Dress for your body: It's crucial to know what looks good for you and go for outfit styles that accentuate that.
