When it rains, it pours. That's what it felt like for 35-year-old Saradee Cole of Versailles, Indiana.

Among other stresses in Cole's life, the flood gates opened when her father past away a few months ago. "The stress of life feels like it has definitely taken its toll. Not only mentally but physically as well," Cole explained. "I would love to look in the mirror and feel good about myself."

Cole said she wanted a new look because she felt like her style was out-dated. "I would love to have a makeover from Mitchell's and be able to feel good again," she said.

She said she read a book after her father passed away and a poignant phrase from it stuck with her: "You are right, nothing will ever be the same again, but there will be a new normal." Cole said, "I feel like a makeover from Mitchell's would start me out on the new normal path I'm looking for."   

Cole started her new path on the right foot by winning this month's "Monthly Makeover"

Cole visited the Kenwood Mitchell's and met with stylist, Jen Schwegman. She updated Cole's color with a few foils and a painting technique called Balayage. "The carmel highlights will add dimension and more movement to her style," says Schwegman.

She cut a little off Cole's length to marry her shorter layers and length together for an updated look. "She has a great face shape, so she can pull off a lot of looks," Schwegman adds. "The bangs were shortened and we now have a future plan to grow her hair out into a shiny, healthy 'do."

Schwegman used Oribe Ulta Rich Shampoo ($26.40) and Conditioner ($26.40) for color preservation and hydration. Then she used a Foundation Mist ($24.25) to even out porosity. Schwegman used Crème for Style ($32) to control Cole's widow peak in bang and for smoothness. Then she used Oribe Maximista ($28.60) at the root for a little hold and lift. Schwegman used a flat brush with the blowdryer and then a flat iron to smooth the ends. She finished the look with Oribe Dry Texture Spray ($43) for hold and instant volume.

Makeup artist Kennedy Hornsby then took the reins. Hornsby says Cole's main concern was making her skin tone even. "She has a bit of hyper-pigmentation on her forehead, so I used Jane Iredale Tinted Moisturizer ($39.60) first and then a Jane Iredale Pressed Powder Foundation ($55) over that," Hornsby explains. "The mineral foundation does not contain any fillers, talc or FD&C dyes, so it's super concentrated, gives full coverage, and lasts all day long."

Next, Hornsby used a Jane Iredale peach and bronze color palette for Cole's eyes ($21), lips ($33) and cheeks ($29.70). "Using shades from the same color family gives a nice, natural, monochromatic look," explains Hornsby.

As Cole sat in the makeup chair staring at the new face in the mirror, she said she was quite pleased with the updated, yet manageable new look staring back at her. She said this was the perfect look for finding a new normal.
