Welcome to Oh, Make Me Over!, a beauty column in partnership with renowned makeup artist Erick Gerson. Each quarter, we will pick a random winner from a number of entries on Facebook to receive an exclusive makeover by Gerson. This month’s winner was Nicole Spaak, a student at Grand Valley State University. Spaak was nominated by her sister Emily, who said, “Nicole is kind, passionate and hard working. She is always there for you if you need her no matter how busy she is.”

To enter the next makeover contest, visit our Facebook page ( on June 10 for entry details.

The Make Over by Erick Gerson

For Nicole’s, makeover, I wanted to keep it young and fun. She doesn’t usually wear much makeup, so I wanted to create something exciting without looking like she was overly made-up—something comfortable but a little out of the ordinary for her.

For Nicole’s hair, I decided to create a messy Mohawk to keep the hair away from her face and create height.

With the combination of her hair and makeup, I wanted to bring out her inner rockstar!
