At the helm of Wake Up…With MakeUp! is Barbara Strafella, a 20-year beauty-industry veteran who knows how to renew visages with treatments tailored to each individual’s skin ailments. After sleuthing around skin for impurities, the specialist begins a deep cleansing to rid pores of dirt, oil, and whac-a-moles. While skin gorges on the epidermal desserts that arrive inside the custom-formulated mask, the aesthetician’s lithe fingers dance a relaxation-inducing number across T-zones and necks. To top off the visage refurbishment, under-eyes don a potent vitamin C mask for 10 minutes in order to brighten the sensitive skin surrounding peepers and ward off optical scurvy.
Tattoo artist Jasmine T. Morrell has a steady hand and an eye for color. Jasmine produces work that catches the eye with its hues and bold black-and-white lines. Jasmine's designs include retro images that evoke a vintage feel, animated characters that come to life on the skin, and clear text that pops, making it easy for strangers to memorize.
When preparing to work on a new tattoo, Sinjed repeatedly assures his clients that his equipment is sterile and his studio is safe. Those same promises don't extend to his work itself. With his needle, Sinjed turns crossed forearms into city skylines, backs into altars for patron deities, and abdomens into scenes of lions on the savannah. The artist specializes in black and white designs and portraits, which means that clients can finally memorialize a fallen relative or bring to life that dream about Steamboat Willie playing chess with Death.
