Joann Hopkins shows off her makeup routine.

In one of Christopher’s popular YouTube videos, his mother and ‘Wardrobe Lady,’ give us a tutorial of her own. She starts out with absolutely no makeup on and her hair up. She hilariously says to the camera, “I look like I died and I hope I went to heaven.” – MAKEOVERGUY

Joann is funny and unapologetic.

She looks into the camera and says that the person staring back isn’t really her. She isn’t too happy without her makeup on. She says to her son, “don’t you dare put me in a nursing home and let me get like this.”

Never too old to look and feel good.

As Joann gets ready to apply her makeup, she recalls a story about how people would react negatively about her choice to wear makeup. “I remember one lady from our church said, ‘Are you ever going to stop wearing makeup’?” Joann’s son Christopher can be heard in the background saying, “never.”

Joann chooses to sleep with her makeup on.

Joann shares her makeup bedtime routine in the funniest way. “I don’t take my makeup off at night…sorry girls…I just don’t…I don’t want to look like hell with the person I love the most so it’s on until morning and then I take it off and start over.” – Joann Hopkins

Joann starts her transformation.

While she applies her foundation, Joann makes us smile at her comments. “My goodness, my eyelashes are really grey.” ‘Joann has enjoyed a career as a personal shopper, style consultant, eyewear buyer, artist, and interior decorator. She works with her son teaching their “illusion dressing” since 1997.’ – MAKEOVERGUY

Her face is glowing.

Joann’s complexion is looking beautiful and vibrant as she continues her application. She is one strong lady who isn’t afraid of showing a before and after pic.

A ‘cat-eye’ at any age.

“I like the cat-eye…a little bit because my eyes are so small this gives me a little more eye…(it) gives you a little bit of lift and opens my eyes.” – Joann says in the video. She isn’t wrong. After she is finished with her eyeliner, her eyes are bright and more defined. It’s a beautiful contrast between her skin, hair, and eye color.

Joann’s makeup skills are on point.

Followers online gave their respect to Joann and her beauty with or without makeup. One person wrote, “God she did her liner so perfect with shaky hands I can’t do that perfectly even when my hands don’t shake…she’s so perfect.” Another wrote, “Love this. Good for her. I’m a 67-year-old nurse and some young newbie asked why I wore makeup to work; bc one wants to look their best, that’s why.” One more commenter wrote, “She looks so beautiful! Even without makeup, you could see her wonderful bone structure – those cheekbones! You don’t have to let yourself go, just because you get a bit older. Your mom is proof of that fact. Love her!”
