Makeover Video: A Welder Gets An Anti-Tomboy Makeover (VIDEO)

When you spend your days wielding a blowtorch in an art studio (safety mask and all), it might not be a top priority to make sure your hair and makeup are perfectly in place -- but it doesn't mean you don't want to look good. Such is the case with Maria Jordan, a welder fabricator in New York City who's ready to update her beauty look. While she says her job feels "anti-princess," she doesn't really consider herself a tomboy. That said, her beauty routine needs to be appropriate for her line of work.

Makeup artist Rebecca Shaw decided to enhance Maria's existing makeup routine by using brighter tones, as well as introducing multi-tasking products like tinted moisturizer (which adds subtle coverage and hydration) and a creamy rose color that doubles as both blush and lipstick. One of Maria's biggest issues is her fine hair which tends to fall flat mid-way through the day. Rebecca suggested Maria apply a thickening spray to clean hair at night, which means she'll wake up to tousled voluminous hair. Check out Maria's subtle-yet-stunning transformation above.

And this is what happened when Kelly Cutrone surprised ten highs school seniors with prom makeovers.
