Mom removes her makeup for the first time in public in over 50 years for makeover

6 years ago

This makeover hits close to home for Christopher Hopkins, The Makeover Guy. Christopher had the chance to give his own mother, Joann Hopkins, a hair makeover, because the woman is a makeup pro, having never removed her makeup in over 50 years!

Joann doesn’t even remove her makeup when she goes to bed at night, saying “why would I want to go to bed at night, with the person I love, looking like hell?”, adding that she doesn’t even come down for coffee before touching it up in the morning.

Christopher says: “If you've read my book, Staging Your Comeback, A Complete Beauty Revival For Women Over 45, you know I watched my mother put her face on every morning for years. No one sees her without makeup. She's always said she'd rather answer the door without her clothes than without her makeup. Of course I think she's beautiful with or without, she's just not “who she is” without it. When who you are is expressed by how you look, you're beautiful. She's not the woman without the makeup. Just the way it is.

“Of course we do know the song is tongue and cheek. I’m not exactly sure how this video went viral. I guess she probably didn’t expect that or she’d have never done it! Well, Mom. It might bring some new subscribers and maybe I’ll sell another couple books. So you helped me out.”

The end result makes Joann look like she is young again. Just wow!
