Mrs MakeOver

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

My Auntie Jackie is a gem. She does about sixty million jobs, as well as being a wife, mother, stepmother and all round good egg.

Her latest project has been setting up a teashop and it has been a lot more successful than she had thought it would be. Obviously this is a brilliant problem to have, but it's led to a lot of hard work, time away from life's little luxuries and a lorra lorra scone baking.

Last week, whilst she had a window of free time, Baby Glitter and I went over with a humungous box of beauty products and restored her former glamour.

Naturally, I took my camera and snapped away and thought I would share the fun with you lovely Sprinklerinos. Mwahaha, Jackie will be just thrilled at the thought of her 'before' pictures being out there- tehe.


Oh me oh my, just looking at all that makeup gives me palpitations. Nice and normal then.


Isn't she a beaut?

Of course beauty is only skin deep, but when you are run ragged and have a much desired makeover, it really can make you feel great on the inside too.

I've actually been toying for a long while with the idea of taking a course in makeup artistry or something of that nature, do you think I should go for it? Eep!

Toodlepip!

  32. You know what I love most about this? Is that she doesn't look much different in the after picture. In a good way! It shows her natural beauty and just accentuates her features, rather than plastering her in a mask.

    I hope that made sense...I have a cold and heads not really thinking straight. Great job - I love it :)

    I saw go for a course, but make sure its a good one otherwise they'll just be teaching you stuff you already know :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes I definitely think that you should go for it, you've done a great job on your Aunt :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  34. You should totally go for it! So nice of you to give you auntie a little boost with a makeover too xo

  44. I studied make up artistry for two years and I can honestly say, while I did enjoy it, I didn't find it particularly beneficial.
    Clients tend not to care, your portfolio is what gets you the work. The two years would probably have been better spent making industry connections, building my own portfolio and looking for local models/photographers to work with on photo shoots and generally just getting in the practice myself.
    I did have lots of fun and made some great friends but it would have been much cheaper and more convenient to do it from home, the internet wasn't the same back then. There wasn't the same amount of awesome beauty bloggers like yourself to share info with.

  45. Awww how lovely are you?! Your auntie looked gorgeous anyway but that make-up look is lovely! She looks glowing and I bet she felt fab xx

    ReplyDelete
  46. She looks great! You did an amazing job!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Your Auntie is a beautiful lady and sounds like a superstar with all those jobs!
    Defiantly go for the make up course!
    I 'enjoyed' make up as a little hobby, so did a college course! i'm now doing a Degree in make up!! But i would say, it really depends what you want to do, i think alot of the courses aren't just your basic make up (unless you specifically pick a course like that) they can include things like prosthetics and body painting and even wig making! Have a look around and see whats available!
    Are you excited for IMATS?!

  51. Wow Louise! Your Auntie Jackie looks wonderful! You done an amazing job there! You should go for the beauty course, better doing it now than regreting it later on in life.
    P.S: It's Lindsey that emailed you earlier, I set it up. :D

  53. If you do a course I reckon you'll be able to teach THEM a thing or two - your aunty looks fab!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Yes I think think you should, she looks rejuvenated like shes had a week off at a luxury spa resort. I too want to get into make up artistry. The trick is finding the right course that fits into your glittery world. You would make a great make up artist, and from watching your vlogs etc you seem such a lovely, friendly and approachable person! x

  77. I don't know you but YES! You should do a makeup artistry course. I recently made the decision to book myself on to one and can't wait to get started. You obviously love makeup so if its something you think you'd enjoy doing in the future, go for it! :)
