Adventure girl gets a makeover
Sixteen years ago, Belinda traded city life for country life and hasn’t looked back. Even the daily three-hour return trip by train into the city for work doesn’t phase her, rising at 5.15am each day - quite the opposite in fact. There’s a real community of regular travelers where some great friendships and romances have formed - it’s where she met hubby!
Belinda and her hubby are keen Off-Road enthusiasts and own a couple of 4WD off-road vehicles that they use in club rallies (see photos below). It’s not unusual for Belinda to be the only woman at the events. Belinda’s the co-driver and it’s a full-on muddy affair and not for the faint-hearted - the rugged terrain often means you’re tipped, flipped and rolled this way and that, sometimes ending upside down in water!!
Yearly overseas travel is a major focus, and already she’s seen and done amazing things including the Grand Canyon, house boating on the Murray River, Las Vegas and Disneyland. Visiting local zoos in each country is always a priority; she’s got a list of zoos she wants to work her way through.
When Belinda lived in the city, she dressed the part - social, work, party - but moving to the country, what you wear is less important; it’s about being practical. But as time has moved on, she hasn’t made the effort and now feels a little stuck. “I want to dress up when I go out, and for work. I’m in a client facing role in a dental practice, meeting and greeting people all the time - for me, it’s important how I look.”
“When I lived in the city, I think I was happier on the outside because of the way I looked, but now, living in the country, surrounded by some of my family, friends and the things I love, I am happier on the inside. I’d like to get more of a balance. I want to feel good in what I wear, even though hubby says he loves me just the way I am.”

Belinda is borderline bottom-heavy (pear/triangle) shape, meaning her hips are slightly wider than her shoulders. She could also be profiled as an hourglass. From what we have seen with Belinda's before photos, and from what she has told us, Belinda has been wearing clothes that are bigger than they need to be, not very flattering at all. She has a great figure and would do well to wear clothes that show it off.
belinda'S COLOUR PALETTE
Belinda has dark hair & eyebrows and brown eyes. Her skin is a soft pale colour but colours up over summer. She suits the Deep palette, and some colours from the Clear palette - bold, strong, crisp colours.
A WORD FROM belinda
"My makeover has given me a refreshed way to look at myself. Thank you Gorgeous Me team!
For most of us it's not going to be a complete makeover all at once, mainly because of cost, but also because we may find it all too overwhelming. Start with something small like your nails, a few new tops, then a good haircut and build from there, but don't give up, it will all come together.
My biggest learning from the makeover experience was that no one can make the effort for 'me', I have to do that myself. I also learnt that good eyebrow shaping can make a big difference to the shape of your face - an instant facelift!
I love the fact that today I got up and 'wanted' to do my hair, I dug out my bangles and necklaces and arranged them in colours, and actually had a hard time trying to think what to wear. It all shows I am now thinking 'YES' I can do this and I will. E is for Effort!
