Moriah

Body Type: Tall and lean

Philadelphia is home to Moriah, a 23-year-old who is making history with her second-hand wardrobe and trampy night look. Moriah is 5'8" tall, and most of her clothes are hand-me-downs from her mother, who is only 5' tall. Moriah recently started an adult trivia business, and her wardrobe makes her look more like a prize for one of the games rather than the head of her company. Stacy and Clinton believe she might possibly have the ugliest wardrobe ever. Will they be able to teach her how to take control of her own style?

Fashion Don'ts:

  • Don't buy clothes made out of stretch polyester. It doesn't do a body justice.
  • You don't always have to accept hand-me-downs.
  • Don't assume showing off your body means leaving little to the imagination.

Fashion Do's:

  • Look younger — instead of an older print, do a more appropriate length.
  • Go for modern floral prints that aren't so literal.
  • Do things that are visually interesting, like skirts with piping or feminine details in tops.
  • It's okay to show off your body, but use clothes to accentuate your assets.
  • Darker denim looks dressier.
  • Go with a straight leg to show off a tall, hourglass figure.
  • Think about classic pieces you can build on for years to come, like a black pencil skirt.
  • Skinny jeans usually have stretch so you can go a little tighter and it will conform to your body.

Nick Arrojo's Hair Transformation

Moriah thinks her long hair is sexy and it's part of her identity, but stylist Nick Arrojo explains it doesn't have any shape and "no shape is not sexy." He wants to make her sexier with short hair. After convincing Moriah of his plan, they donate her long hair to Locks of Love. Next, Nick freshens up her color with a warm chocolate brown. For Moriah's cut, Nick uses a razor to cut a long textured bob with sexy bangs. To style, Nick used a flat brush to blow dry her hair smooth, then used a straightening iron to finish.

Carmindy's Makeover

Moriah is already confident, but Carmindy wants to show her how to be sexy while still professional. First, it's time to review Moriah's makeup bag. Carmindy explains there's a bed of bacteria living in old makeup and you won't get the results you're looking for on your skin using expired, dirty makeup.

Carmindy begins Moriah's makeover with a loose translucent powder that contains a yellow tint to neutralize redness. Next, a liquid brow corrector feathered lightly on the eyebrows makes them nice and full. For Moriah's eyes, Carmindy uses black eyeliner on the upper lash line and applies a light shadow to soften the effect. Black mascara is a must. Always start on the lower lashes so you don't mess up the top lash line when you look up. To finish, apply a neutral pink lipstick and a neutral gloss for shine.
