It is hard to underestimate the power of makeup. You must have seen dozens of makeup artists’ amazing works in our articles. But not a single one about an ordinary woman doing her own makeup. This 78-year-old lady, the mother of Christopher Hopkins, better known as The Makeover Guy, showed her daily makeup routine. And the result is equally stunning!

Here's how Christopher captioned the video:

At 78 my mother still puts her full face on every day. This is what I watched every day growing up and it still fascinates me. You can tell where I get my inspiration. I will always see her as she appears after. This is probably one of the more difficult things she has done and no one who has known her would believe she actually did it.

The makeup routine

The woman applies foundation and then powders her face. Of course, lip pencil and gloss.
