  1. The best makeover I ever had was courtesy of a wonderful friend who I worked with at Clinique. It had been a terrible day- I had been in tears constantly, having just found out about my parents’ impending divorce. She sat me down at our makeover station, and was so gentle in cleaning off my tear-smeared face. She reapplied my makeup to make me look glowing and natural, and not at all like the puffy-eyed, runny-nosed monster I was. Her kindness that day meant the world to me, and that’s why it was my best makeover.

    I had my makeup done at MAC years ago. They used Chartru paint and blue eyeliner and a coral lip. It was a simple look, but it introduced me to bright makeup (before that, I wore mostly neutral and dark makeup) and made me much more open to trying colors I wouldn’t have otherwise thought would work for me.

    The best makeover I’ve ever had was in my birthday. My friends just found out my makeup things in my room and they tried them on me, like I was a mouse. Finally, I looked totally colorful like I was going on stage haha. Then, we tried them on all of us, it was so fun.

    My favorite and most memorable make over was when I was 16 and I went into a MAC store for the first time. The MUA did my eyeshadow with bright purples and inspired me to go home and practice with my own make up. It was the beginning of my love affair with make up. Oh did I mention my dad almost fainted when he saw me! It still makes me laugh

    The best makeover I ever had was a MAC makeover I had when I was 14. My Mom’s friend had gotten me a gift certificate to MAC and so I called and made an appointment. I’d never worn professional makeup before and I was stunned by the result. It forever cemented my loyalty to Love Nectar Lustreglass, Phone Number Eye Kohl, and MAC itself.

    My first makeover when I was 12 or 13 at Clinique. It was the 90’s and the most memorable piece I came home with was a matte brown lip crayon. I loved that thing. Yuck!

    My first ever makeover was on the day of my Prom(about 3 years ago) at MAC. He made a beautiful combination using Tilt, Phloof, and another color I cant quite remember and with Viva Glam V lipgloss which is still my #1 gloss that I absolutely and matches my lips skintone but makes it better. And that day was the same day that I bought my first MAC products =)

    Funny that you should ask that now bc I’m getting one tomorrow by Urban Decay at Ulta. My favorite makeover was my first one I think around 12yrs old(’70’s) at Merle Norman. I used my bdy money to buy a bunch of their makeup aftwerwards and then ruined it all by carrying it around in my purse. I was so sad. Is Merle Norman even around anymore?

    My favorite makeover I’ve had has been my own! Dyed my hair dark brown, did my makeup a different way, and did a nutmeg treatment looking so much more brighter. :)

  22. The best makeover I ever had was when I dyed my hair fiery red. It really livened up my face and made me “pop” … hahaha. Though I did feel a lot more limited in my makeup choices initially.

    My favorite makeover was actually for my wedding two years ago. My Mother In Law does hair and makeup for a living and she did mine for my wedding. It was a very vintage feeling makeover. I really enjoyed being pampered!

    My favorite makeover was one I did myself last year. I died my hair a darker brown, and started to use mineral makeup. It really made my eyes pop and my complexion is so much better now!

    I found a hairdresser who was giving makeovers to local women on one of our local TV stations. I had gotten three really bad haircuts in a row from three different hairdressers so I was desperate to find a fix. Well, I made an appointment with Melanie and have been going to her for the past year. She does amazing things with hair and makeup. I have never been happier with any stylist. If you look good, you feel good is so true!
