HG4H6514 HG4H6552 HG4H6643 HG4H6631

These are the comments that she made after her makeover journey and after each step in the process:


This is what Joanne said about after her 6 week Makeover Journey:
Wow! What an amazing adventure! I was excited when I found out I won the competition, but also a little apprehensive about what I was about to go through. I could never have expected it to be so much fun! Angela made me feel comfortable and listened to my needs. All the girls did, actually. Angela never pressured me into buying anything- but I loved all the clothes she selected for me and couldn’t resist! I learnt that it wasn’t about buying more, it was buying smarter and knowing the gaps in my wardrobe. Now that I have been shopping on my own, I am actually enjoying it and it’s so much easier by applying the rules for my body shape and colour chart.

The photo shoot was a blast! I was worried about being in front of the camera, but Linda was so great and made me feel comfortable, which shows in the photos. I actually felt like a model, and looked pretty close to it thanks to Angela for the styling, Penny for the great Keratine Hair Straightening and the hair cut, Ere Perez for her Goodie Bag and Rozlyne for the make-up lesson, oh… and for being a perfectionist and ensure everything was in place for the photos.

I can’t thank Angela, Penny, Ere, Rozlyne and Linda enough for all they have done for me. Each of you were so much fun and so good at what you do! I guess the only way to show my appreciation is to look and feel good each day. I am much more confident now, and am always getting comments from family, friends and even strangers. I love the new me!!

For you reading this and thinking about doing it, all I can say is….GO FOR IT!

Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou!!!!


This is what Joanne said about Cronulla Make Up Artist Rozlyne Vidal's Make Up Lesson - Part 4 of Makeover Journey:

"I only ever wore make-up for special occasions, and always applied it using guess work. When Rozlyne told me I would me making up half of my face like a professional (she showed me on the other side), I didn’t believe her. She was a great teacher. I especially loved learning about contouring and highlighting- 2 things I never knew about applying make-up, and yet make such a difference! The great thing was, she used my make-up where possible, and advised what I should buy to fill my gaps. A little more practice, with the help of my notes, and I’ll be able to have a professional look for those special occasions, and a natural look each day. Thanks for such a fun and educational experience Rozlyne. It was a great day!”

This is what Joanne said about Arncliff Hair Stylist Penny Martin's Keratin Hair Treatment - Part 3 of Makeover Journey:

"Penny was fantastic! She took the time to explain the type of style that would suit my face shape and also took into consideration the maintenance of my hair. I said goodbye to my frizzy hair with the use of Global Keratin and said hello to beautiful smooth, straight hair. I can leave the house without putting a brush through my hair, and yet still walk out looking like I’ve been to the hairdressers. It’s the hair I’ve always wanted. Thanks again Penny!”

This is what Joanne said about her Shop In Your Wardrobe Session and Her 3 hour Personal Shopping Experience at Westfield Chatswood with Engadine Fashion Stylist Angela Barbagallo -  Part 2 and 3 of Makeover Journey:

"Angela- you have done wonders to my wardrobe in just 2 hours! It was great going through my clothes with you, and deciding what worked and what did not. I never thought I would have so much fun shopping, let alone be so productive in only 3 hours. I was surprised at how many shops we covered! I now have the knowledge of the styles and colours that suit me, so my future shopping experiences will be enjoyable and more efficient. I love all the clothes and accessories we bought together and have already started wearing them. Today I feel more confident walking down the street, knowing that I look good. Thank you so much. I will be recommending you to friends!

This is what Joanne said about her Style and Colour Portfolio - Part 1 of Makeover Journey:

"Going through my colour and style portfolio with Angela was fun and educational. I learnt about my body shape and what clothes would suit me best, and more importantly…what clothes to avoid. Going through the colours was a real eye opener and I am looking forward to adding these to my current “black & white” wardrobe. This has made me think about my current wardrobe, and how I can improve on this to make sure I am wearing clothes to suit me- both style and colour. I’m looking forward to more efficient shopping where I don’t have to try on half the shop to find the best item for me!"

Joanne's Head to Toe Make Over Journey - Part 5 Make Up Lesson with Make Up Artist Rozlyne Vidal

Yesterday Joanne had her Make Up lesson with Rozlyne Vidal. A lesson is a little more involved than just a makeover. Rozlyne, Make Up Artist, did Joanne's right hand side of her face and Joanne did the left hand side to practice the techniques of blushing, highlighting, contouring, blushing, eyes and lips. A lesson usually takes 2 hours and you bring your make up bag with you so Rozlyne can use what you have and pick out the gaps so you don't end up with a Make up graveyard of products you don't use.

Quick and Easy Make Up Tips by Make Up Artist Rozlyne Vidal www.rozlynevidal.com.au
 

As a special treat, I have asked Rozlyne to share some of her secrets with us. I highly recommend a one-on-one Make Up lesson, which I did last year, and I feel so much confident in applying make up, experimenting with colours, using the right tools etc. All thanks to Rozlyne's enthousiasm!

Rozlyne's Tips 
1. Always use a Primer before you apply your foundation. It will make the foundation last and look more even (Armani primer and MAC Primer are great and Clarins also has a great product to prepare the base of your make up called “Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch”).

2. The best way to test your foundation colour is to apply it to your jawline if you can't see the colour, it is the right one for you. If the colour stands out for being too light or dark it is not the correct shade, keep looking! The inside of the wrist is not necessarily a great match to the skin tone of your face. Always apply your make-up in a well lit room with natural light.
 
3. Use light shimmery colours when you want to make an area bigger or where light hits your face; like the top of your cheekbones (this is called highlighting), the centre of the nose, the cupid's bow of your lips, the centre of your chin and inner corner of your eyes (MAC has a great Pigment that works well called vanilla).
 
4. Use Dark and matte shades when you want to draw less attention to an area (this is called contouring); like the bottom of the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and also the sides of the nose, the temples of your forehead up to the hair line, your neck muscles on either side and for extra cleavage a v-shape in the décolletage  (The secret is to use to an angle brush MAC do a great one it is number no 169).
 
5. Only apply blush to the "apples"  of your face that appear when you have a big smile.
 
6. When it comes to applying eye colours the secret is use a combination of lighter (near inner corner and underneath eye brow) to darker colours towards the edge of the eye. Then Blend, Blend, Blend with a blending brush (MAC no 239) or your fingers to make the edges smooth and the overall look is amazing.
 
7. Apply  a cream or white pencil to the inner part of the lower lid to make your eyes appear larger (newsreaders have been using this trick for years!)
 
8. To prevent lips from bleeding, apply a lip pencil in a colour matching to your lip colour and fill in the whole lip to make your lipstick last. Apply a little gloss for some extra glamour.
 
9. Give your brushes a regular wash with hot water, shampoo and conditioner to clean out all the excess oils. Dry them off with a towel and let them air-dry really well before the next use. You will be amazed how nice and soft they turn out.
 
10. Remember to allow enough time to apply your make-up and practice makes perfect!

Joanne's Head to Toe Make Over Journey - Part 4 Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics Gift Pack

As part of Joanne's Make Over Journey she also received a Gift Pack from Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics worth over $100.

IMGP0947

 
The Gift pack consisted of the following products that are all available on Ere Perez's website or at your nearest retailer.

Natural 3 step make up by Ere Perez

Who is Ere Perez?
I am a make up lover, Mexican born and bred and a proud Aussie for the last seven years. I am a dietician by career and a naturopath.
My family in Mexico has been working in natural therapies for a long time. My grandad is a natural medicine man still. For years he has studied the healing properties of the plants. He was my inspiration to use the benefits of nature on products that are used by women on day to day basis. That is how I started designing a range of natural products that I consider them to be “more than a cosmetic…”


What made you start a Natural Cosmetics line?
I just love natural therapies and designing natural makeup makes it a fun and girly job… Why? Because I love fashion, good looks and a healthy lifestyle and most of all - I love women. I think wearing makeup can be used to speed up confidence in seconds, so girls can easily achieve what they want and instantly feel better about themselves.

What do your clients love about Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics?
They are natural and nourishing, plus they look good and all the hues are very wearable and mistake proof, they are affordable with good quality packaging.

What is your favorite rosehip oil Lipbar?
Love the nude is a must have a great natural colour and very nourishing plus also protects from the sun.
Could you share one of your Cosmetic secrets with us?
I use raw honey all over my face twice a month for 30 min is a great healing mask good for scars, and dry skin.

Joanne's Head to Toe Make Over Journey - Part 3 Keratin Hair Straightening Treatment

Joanne is almost at the end of her Make Over Journey and Part 3 was to have her hair straightened with a Global Keratin treatment by Penny Martin. Penny put the treatment on half of Joanne's hair to give it a natural look (..with success as you can see below on the before and after photos) and it took about 2 hours.

Bookings can be made on 02 9592 4036 or 0411 122 519 or if you would like to know more contact Penny on info@stylistcollective.com.au

The Global Keratin hair treatment is a keratin-based treatment that straightens hair naturally without harsh chemicals. It is a reconditioning treatment that transforms the hair and restores shine. This incredible treatment is designed for people who have curly, frizzy and damaged hair! By infusing keratin deep into the hair cuticle, Global Keratin uses hair’s natural ingredient to achieve radical shine, beautiful smoothness and healthy, manageable style. Everyone can benefit from GK Treatments, even over-processed and chemically damaged hair. In fact, the more damaged the better and the longer the treatment lasts. It deeply reconditions and repairs, making it so much more than just a straightening system.

The immediate result is soft, shiny, healthy & luxurious – and unlike other chemical treatments and relaxers, can be used on coloured or chemically straightened hair.

Before, Straight After the treatment and after 2 days and Joanne's own hair styling at Home

Joanne's Head to Toe Make Over Journey - Part 2 Wardrobe Organisation and Personal Shopping Experience at Westfield Chatswood

Last Thursday I met Joanne, our winner of the Head to Toe Competition, at her lovely home in Roseville to go through her Wardrobe with her Style Portfolio and Colour Swatch and to find where she had made great decisions and where not so great. We came up with with a Gap list of what was missing that included Cardigans, a Top to match a skirt, black pants, shorts, a Maxi Dress, Singlets, belts, accessories and black flats.Compiled

Joanne was already very organised in dividing her wardrobe in casual/work/tops and bottoms. Also her winter things were away from her summer wardrobe to create more space.

Swatch09_2

Mid morning we headed to Westfield Chatswood to look for the items on the Gap list, her Shopping Guide with her best styles and her Soft Summer Colour Swatch in her handbag. 

We started at Myer and covered brands like Esprit, Basque, Cue, Country Road, Review, Sportscraft, Wish, Wayne Cooper.

Shorts we picked up from Country Road were a hit but pants in Cue did not fit, due to Joanne's Triangle body shape she is in between sizes what often happens in with this shape.

Outside Myer we popped into Aldo and found a great pair of pointy flats with a kitten heel that will look great under work pants, dresses, skirts and jeans.

At Glassons we found a great Maxi dress in great pattern as well as great style cardigans that will mix and match. We also found a black belt that had an interesting lock and fitted Joanne perfectly in her waist.

At Forever New we found some great basic singlets and a great cream patent belt that will look great with Joanne's winter dress (another Gap filled)

At Equip we found some great necklaces in a soft pink and green tones.

On the way to Target we popped into a Surf shop as I spotted a great Maxi dress and again this was a hit when she tried it on. Joanne was set for a Stylish Summer look!

In Target we found a great pair of pants that fitted like a glove, some more singlets in great colours as well as a nice necklace.

All in all a successful and fun shopping trip that took 3 hours!

Joanne's Head to Toe Make Over Journey - Part 1 Style and Colour Portfolio

You may remember Joanne Pate being the Winner of our Head to Toe Competition! Joanne 1

We have started her Make Over Journey last week and I wanted to make you apart of this exciting process.

Joanne came to the Style Angel Studio for her Style and Colour Portfolio and after a brief chat I took 17 Body Shape measurements and produced her Style Portfolio with the help of my amazing body shape software.

Joanne is a Triangle Body shape (just think of J.Lo, Halle Berry and Kate Winslet) and her Face Shape is Oblong (like Sarah Jessica Parker)

Together we worked through her best styles and styles to avoid and highlighted her shopping guide with different colours (see pictures below) to make her next shopping trip much easier for Joanne. Joanne will have this Style Portfolio for the rest of her life and really minimise purchases that she regrets later.

Collars

Jacket Styles

Compiled

The second part of the first session was a Colour Analysis. Joanne has beautiful chocolate hair and eyes and a lovely olive skin. Her skin is muted and she is best suited to Cool, Muted and Soft Tones (Soft Summer) like attached below.

IMG_6088   IMG_6090IMG_6089

This is what Joanne said about her Style and Colour Portfolio:

"Going through my colour and style portfolio with Angela was fun and educational. I learnt about my body shape and what clothes would suit me best, and more importantly…what clothes to avoid. Going through the colours was a real eye opener and I am looking forward to adding these to my current “black & white” wardrobe. This has made me think about my current wardrobe, and how I can improve on this to make sure I am wearing clothes to suit me- both style and colour. I’m looking forward to more efficient shopping where I don’t have to try on half the shop to find the best item for me!"

Tanya's 2 Hour Makeover - Before and After Shots

Tanya from Turramurra in NSW won a 2 Hour Personal Shopping Experience as part of the Head to Toe Makeover competition.

Before Photo                            After Photos

Before.jpg After01 After02

Tanya and I met at Chatswood Chase in September and we spent all of our time together in the department store David Jones. I often have people ask me where I take my Clients and David Jones and Myer are both fantastic as they stock great brands and we can find all the pieces in one go including shoes and accessories.

Tanya has a fantastic figure and I measured her shape as a Rectangle Body Shape (like the likes of Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow) and she has an Oblong Face shapes (like Sarah Jessica Parker). Great necklines are important for Tanya to make her look taller.

Tanya's best colours are Soft and Cool colours, as you can see below she looks stunning in Purple and lilac (a real in-colour at the moment). She also bought a GREAT pair of Jeans by Mavi (Amelie is the name of type) and a stunning Saba dress. Her chocolate hair and eyes are also look great with Greens in her colour swatch.

Here is a look at her 60 best colours:

 IMG_6088 After01 IMG_6090

IMG_6089

This is what Tanya had to say about her experience:

"Thanks a million for the two hour styling session. Such a great prize! I’ve been telling all my friends about it. Someone told me years ago that I should wear “autumn” colours, and I took that to mean that I should buy oranges, browns etc (like Autumn leaves!). Anyhow, you set me straight on that, and I now know that my skin tone suits a really wide range of colours (including purple, blue etc). I also learnt what to look for to suit my rectangular body shape, which was so useful. I came away from the session armed with information, and feeling confident about buying clothes and accessories."
