Our cover model Dawn Spyker is an artist who sports a great every-day look, but we made her into a cover model who is helping our magazine fly off the stands. Above is how she looks on the cover of the magazine, but her normal look is…

Our makeup artist Denise Cardwell and our hair stylist Tiffany Maynard from Blades Salon and Spa, didn’t have to do much to accentuate Dawn’s best features. Tiffany worked hard at turning Dawn’s beautiful red hair into a big, curly hairstyle. For Dawn’s makeup, Denise used MAC foundation, eyeshadow from Urban Decay and applied eyeshadow to Dawn’s brows to deepen their color. On her lips, Denise used a rich shade from MAC Cosmetics.

We wanted an artsy cover that also said “awards” because of our 2016 Best for You Awards. She wrote the “Best for You” words on her fingers with her artistic touch. Read more about Dawn and her businesses here.
