Makeover - Annah - May 2013

Makeover - Annah - May 2013
Let's meet the gorgeous Annah...

 

Age:  40

Dress size:  14-16

Height:  170cm (5'7) 

 

 

A 10

Untitled -1990

 

Okay, you win Annah!  Who'd want to take you on.  Annah recently lost a front tooth fooling around with the team without her protect gear on!  Ouch.

 

Annah lives in t-shirts, jeans and trackpants - they're comfortable and work well with her job as an after-school caregiver. 

 

 

BODY shape

 

Annah's shoulders and bust are wider and bigger than her bottom half.  She has a flat bottom and great legs and looked fab in straight and fitted pants (see below).  Annah needs to balance up the appearance of the shoulders and the hips without making either look too big. 

 

Top Half Bigger - No Text

 

 

Colours

 

Annah suits the Clear colour palette - she has dark hair and eyebrows with blue eyes.  That means she suits bright, bold colours.  Her skin has a blue undertone so she also suits colours within the Cool and Deep palettes, but Clear is her dominant palette.  It can be difficult finding clothes within your palette, it depends so much on what's available in a particular season, and of course the style and fit to suit.  Sometimes we have to make compromises.

Just before the makeover

Annah wears her hair up most of the time for ease.

 

 

Transformation time

 

Annah naturally has lovely soft, shiny hair.  Krissy, from Kristina Raffaele, suggested bringing some hair down onto Annah's face with a soft, side sweeping fringe and layering her hair to give it more body and movement.  She also suggested adding highlights to enrich the hair and give it a more textured look.

Gorgeous Me would like to thank Krissy and her wonderful team at Kristina Raffaele for the amazing makeover - hair styling and makeup.  You give our models the royal treatment - nothing new we understand, that's how all of your clients get looked after!

Annah didn't feel comfortable with this outfit when she was trying it on.  It took a bit of persuasion and the addition of a long cardi to get her feeling better about it but in the end the outfit won her over, she's going back to the store to buy it!

We showed Annah that you don't have to limit yourself to jeans and trackpants to feel comfortable.  Ponti pants and leggings are very comfortable and Annah has said she can see herself converting.

What did Annah learn from the makeover?

 

"I learnt that I see myself completely different to how others see me. I need to listen to others more and trust what they are saying about me.

 

I should just "play" when trying clothes on. Try some stuff that I would never wear, dress up and have some fun.

 

I also learnt that I have a terrible opinion about myself and I need to really work on that. No one is gong to love me if I don't love myself. Beauty does start on the inside and I need to start changing that internal voice!

 

We must be gentle, loving and kind to ourselves! Nurture the inner YOU and don't be afraid to shine!"
