For many people, Christopher Hopkins, A.K.A. the Makeover Guy, is a well-known, household name— Joann Hopkins, however? Well, not so much.
Christopher Hopkins, self-proclaimed entrepreneur, author, and media personality, was heavily influenced by his mother Joann while growing up.
Joann had always been a diva at heart and dreamed of living like a star.
Unfortunately, due to limitations, she was forced to work a variety of jobs to help support Christopher and make ends meet. Model, photographer assistant, personal shopper— whatever Joann was doing, she always did it with style.

While Joann is an expert when it comes to fashion, being hired to do silhouette analyses at Christopher’s salon, she admits to partaking in beauty habits that aren’t…. very good. In a former video uploaded by The Makeover Guy, she admits that she never removes her makeup except to apply a fresh look.
“I go through surgery with my makeup on,” she told the camera. “I don’t take my makeup off at night. Why do I want to go to bed with the person I love looking like Hell?”

Despite Joann’s commitment to beauty, dermatologists say this is an extremely bad habit. Dr. Eric Schweiger told The Huffington Post that sleeping in makeup increases one’s exposure to free radicals which then breaks down healthy collagen and result in fine lines and premature aging. Over time, it can also lead to uncomfortable skin conditions like bacterial acne. Despite these risks, Joann must not be a mere mortal like the rest of us. Her skin has remained impeccable.
Throughout the video, you see Joann applying makeup like her younger self.
She says people think she’s too old for makeup now— but that doesn’t bother her one bit.
After decades of practice, her makeup skills are impressive. She expertly applies foundation, eye shadow, and cat-eye eyeliner. By the time she’s done, she looks like a different person. In the caption, The Makeover Guy writes:
“This is what I watched every day growing up and it still fascinates me. You can tell where I get my inspiration. I will always see her as she appears after.”

Since being uploaded last month, Christopher’s video has been viewed two million times.
People admire Joann’s passion for makeup and her desire to not let herself go.
“I love it! It’s so nice to see a woman keep going and not give up on how she looks! And she does look fantastic!”
“Amazing! Never become complacent with how you look. Looking good gives us confidence and shows others that we take pride in ourselves and makes us feel better.”
“The first few seconds in… and I’m already in looooove with this woman!!!”
