BEFORE THEY WERE
What has the Corrie star changed since our 2007 throwback snap?
‘I’d say that significant weight-loss has given Helen’s face more definition,’ says Mo. ‘She has quite a wide-eyed look, which could be down to small amounts of Botox. Her top lip also looks fuller in the second picture, suggesting a small amount of filler has been injected there.’
We barely recognised this 2008 pic of freshfaced Ariana, without her trademark swishy ponytail, tan and sleek make-up. And that’s not all the 24-year-old has switched up, according to our experts.
‘Ariana has grown into her features as she’s got older and has a more polished look,’ muses cosmetic surgeon Mo. ‘She appears to have had a nose job, which can make the whole face look slimmer.’
‘Ari’s ditched the heavy liner, swapping it for a winged effect that enhances her eyes,’ says our beauty editor, Amber. ‘She’s also positioned her ponytail high up to elongate her face. And, by the looks of it, there’s a LOT of faux hair involved!’ Helen had a nose job in 2013.
As for the magic of make-up, Flanners, 26, has learned a new trick or two…
‘Harsh black liner can have an eyeshrinking effect,’ says Amber. ‘Now, Helen makes her blue eyes pop with copper shadow blended along her socket and lower lashline. She’s also gone heavy on the brightening concealer to lift her cheeks.’
