Make-up transformations

Without doubt, using make-up can transform your looks, and I’ve come across this meme which demonstrates it perfectly:

I’ve written before about how important make-up is for many women, but, if I’m honest, although the transformations in these pictures is breathtaking, I wouldn’t like to wear as much make-up as this on any kind of regular basis – and I wouldn’t have time to create these looks either!

When I apply make-up to myself or to clients, I go for a more natural look that is easy to do by yourself on a daily basis – but that’s not to say it isn’t transformational.  I applied some primer and foundation to a client on Monday to cover the dark shadows under their eyes – and they had to sit forward to look closely in the mirror to see where the shadows had disappeared to.  That’s the kind of pleasure I get working with clients: seeing how much they can change with a little help from me.

Make-up is external, but the change I like to see most is the improved self-image when I also coach clients to overcome their self limiting beliefs where it all feeds into a cycle of improvement.  Their self-esteem rockets and their belief in their own capabilities takes them to places that they had never previously considered.
