What would you say about your appearance prior to the Makeover?
I dressed too old and ‘frumpy’ for my age. Looked more like my sons grandmother than their mum! Too many mismatched and impulse purchases in my wardrobe. Makeup took around 5minutes. Just slapped on. Hadn’t changed my hairstyle for years.
What was the BEST part of the Makeover?
Seeing how I looked after the makeover. And seeing the wonderful reaction of my family and friends. Being pampered an made to feel so special.
What was the WORST part of the Makeover?
Nothing! I loved the whole experience.
What was the best advice Trinny & Susannah gave you?
Start thinking of putting myself first. Don’t let my family take me for granted.
How has the Makeover changed your life?
My self-confidence has improved out of sight. I absolutely love clothes shopping, it’s an outright pleasure! I know to dress to make the most of my figure and definitely dress a lot better.
