Today we are going to talk about Fergie. Fergie’s real name is Stacy Ann Ferguson and she is a well-known pop singer-songwriter famous for her solo album The Dutchess. Fergie also fronts the band Black Eyed Peas.
Fergie has lovely green/blue eyes but her makeup and hair are usually not done in a way to give emphasis on her best features. She also have a problem of looking much older than her actual age (born in March 1975, she is 34 at the time of writing). She attributes this to drug abuse during her younger days. Drug use can be attributed to her poor skin quality — premature wrinkles, etc. — however fashion magazine editors are notoriously known for their heavy hand at touching up skin blemishes and other imperfections using photo editing software such as Photoshop.
This is a Fergie’s photo from a magazine photo shoot. She still looks matured.
So why does Fergie still look old despite the professional touch up?
The answer to this lies in the eyes. Or more accurately, her eyebrows. She has a very highly arched, thin brows that doesn’t complement her beautiful eyes. In fact, this style of brows have the tendency to make one look like a drag queen, which is one of the unfortunate titles she has been associated with.
To remedy this, she needs to wear her eyebrows lower and darker. Why?
Take a look at a young child’s face. Their eyebrows are not arched and are positioned lower down the forehead, closer to the eyes. This is one of the tricks to create a suggestion of youth.
Thicker eyebrows would give her sultry eyes the right framing they need.
In this makeover, Fergie is given darker, less arched brows, a little bit more mascara to make her eyes pop and darker hair to complement her brows and also draw our eyes to her best feature. In keeping with the youthful theme, her lips are kept matte, using a lighter lip color.
The result: Younger, brunette Fergie after our digital makeover.
No other changes were made to her skin, structure of face, color of eyes etc. but the result is amazingly different. She looks 10 years younger and the emphasis to her best feature is restored – her amazingly sexy eyes.
