Makeup: Makeup artist Sue Pike, who worked with each of these women, added smoky drama to Doyle's eyes, then offset the look with a neutral lip color. "Heavily made-up eyes, lips, and cheeks age you," Pike explains. "Pick one feature to emphasize, and stick with it." Another anti-aging Pike-ism: Choose a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturizer. Heavy cover-up can cake and highlight lines, making you look older. Hair: "Just because you have short hair, that doesn't mean it can't have texture and movement," says celebrity stylist George Ortiz, who did the panelists' hair. On Doyle, he created mini waves with a tiny flat iron. "It's the same technique as curling a ribbon with scissors," says Ortiz. Then he added a dime-size amount of balm for shine. What to avoid: the dread helmet head. "Stiff, dull, dry hair can pile on the years," he warns.

Lynn Bunis
Age: 54 Height: 5' 5" Pounds lost in 7 weeks: 14 Total pounds lost: 30 Her challenge: A declining metabolism. "I steadily gained weight over the past three decades; I just wasn't happy with where things were going," says Bunis, a private-school administrator.

Makeup: When it comes to hair and makeup, "I'm hopeless!" she confesses. "Basically, all I use is moisturizer." But even a novice can master a few easy tricks, says Pike, who brightened up Bunis's face with a lip stain in a get-noticed berry shade. "Stain stays put better than lipstick does — but swipe on a balm first, so it won't dry out your lips," Pike says. Then, for extra insurance that the color won't bleed into fine lines (a common problem with age), use a tiny brush to trace and blend some nude-colored loose powder around the edges of your mouth. "It creates a buffer to keep the color in place," Pike explains. Hair: "Bunis had a good cut for her face, but her hair needed more body. It was a little bit 'soccer mom,' " Ortiz says. To give Bunis's hair oomph, he used medium Velcro rollers on her crown and a curling iron on the ends of her strands to flip them away from her face. The final look: piece-y and touchable.

Maria Arap
Age: 38 Height: 5' 4" Pounds lost in 7 weeks: 10.5 Total pounds lost: 25 Her challenge: A history of yo-yo dieting. "I tried everything, from cleanses to acupuncture," says Arap, a legal assistant who partly attributes her extra pounds to sitting at a desk all day. "I've always gained everything back."

Makeup: "My go-to is concealer, to cover my black undereye bags," says Arap. The trick: Choose a concealer that's neither too creamy nor too dry. "Both consistencies settle into lines," explains Pike. She used an eyelash curler and taupe eye shadow to help make Arap's hazel eyes pop. Hair: Arap's cut gives her natural curls bounce so they don't overwhelm her face. And when blown out straighter, as here, the layers accentuate her eyes and cheekbones for a more youthful look, says Ortiz. He also used Velcro rollers to create fullness.

Melissa Berman
Age: 46 Height: 5' 4" Pounds lost in 7 weeks: 19 Her challenge: A sweet tooth. "Before I started the 7YY program, I used every excuse in the book to eat sweets ('Oh, it's raining!' 'It's Friday!'). I was having dessert after breakfast, after lunch, and after dinner!" confesses Berman, a stay-at-home mom of two boys, 9 and 11. "But you can't treat every day like it's a special occasion."

Makeup: Berman's eyebrows already had strong arches, which helped her eyes look bigger and brighter. For an extra lift, Pike stroked her brows upward with an eyebrow brush. She then used a creamy brown pencil eyeliner (more age-friendly than black or heavy liquid liner) and set it by brushing matching eye shadow on top. Hair: "Instead of drinking soda, I'm drinking more water — and, of course, eating healthier — and my hair looks fuller and shinier as a result," says Berman of the fringe benefits of her diet changes. Ortiz agreed that her hair was in good condition and "the perfect length for her face." But Berman has fine locks, so after towel-drying them, Ortiz applied a root lift at her crown and hairline — and at the nape of her neck, which "keeps hair from sticking to the back of the head," he explains. Then he blew it dry.

Malaika Adero
Age: 56 Height: 5' 3" Pounds lost in 7 weeks: 8 Total pounds lost: 10 Her challenge: Carb overload. Being active was never a problem for Adero, a book editor who has been dancing since she was 16. "I started with modern, ballet, and African-based dance, and now I do mainly Afro-Cubanand African — for at least 4 1/2 hours a week." Yet she was finding it harder and harder to keep her weight down: "It's so easy to slip — a croissant here, a muffin there, cupcakes at an office party…."

Makeup: "Her skin is amazing," says Pike, who used a light touch, starting with a radiance-enhancing primer to fill in tiny lines and give Adero's skin a glow. She followed that with plum eye shadow and brick lipstick. "Color brightens the face," says Pike. "Choices that aren't too bold keep the look soft and approachable." Hair: Adero's curls "were flattened out and messy, but those same curls can easily have a lot of body and fullness," says Ortiz. To shape up her hair, he misted it with a shine spray and wrapped any visible curls around the barrel of a tiny curling iron. "It helps tame and smooth wiry grays so they don't stick out," says Ortiz. "It also gives a polished-looking finish."
