We are all different, but we are united by one thing — a desire to look perfect. Oksana Trunova, a makeup artist and the mastermind behind the Blind Makeover project, and Olga Tarasova, a hairdresser, know how to transform people’s looks. This is why women from everywhere in Russia turn to them for help. The results of the makeovers are stunning.

At Enlighten, we were stunned by the results, and we want to show you a few interesting examples. The stylists shared some of their work with us, and a short back story about each participant.

This is Ekaterina. We first met 4 years ago. Ekaterina won a contest we had for a makeover and a photo shoot. She had been watching our project for years and finally dared to take part in it.

Alena had been growing out her hair for many years, and was afraid that we would cut her hair short. But we support well-groomed, long hair. Alena is not very tall, and her long hair made her look even shorter. Many women try to grow long hair for the sake of femininity and refinement. However, hair that grows longer than our shoulder blades doesn’t suit every girl, sometimes it even emphasizes her imperfections.
