Makeover Time!

I love my sister more than anything in the world. We are similar on my many levels. We have the same sense of humor, the same love for our family and friends, the same drive and desire, the same love of sports and working out. We’re the “same” in many aspects.

But we’re also very different. Our biggest difference may be the fact that I would shop any day, any where – just give me a time and a place! I have always loved new clothes and new makeup and new accessories and new beauty products. Jane, not so much. Jane loves to wear comfortable clothes; a fleece jacket and track pants are her “go-to” clothing. She always looks good and always looks comfortable. But… well, I wanted to make her over! I wanted to give her a new hair cut, have her put on a little makeup and give her a comfortable outfit – but ditch the fleece jacket and track pants.

I don’t know how I was able to accomplish this — but she AGREED TO LET ME! So I called in some reinforcements — two of our best friends from childhood (and also sisters), Leah and Amy. Leah is a master hair/makeup professional. Amy let us completely take control of her kitchen as we did our first MAKEOVER on Jane! A Girls’ Makeover Night!

Jane is donating her cut hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

    OMG Jane! You are obviously very beautiful without makeup and in your before look, just a bit “outdated” just like I was with my 16yrs of 80’s hair……the after has you looking hip, fresh, and vibrant! Absolutely beautiful Jane and I hope that with this makeover, you find a new self confidence as I did with my mine. I found that I was always hiding behind my hair and when we cut it, I was unable to flick it forward in front of my face….meaning I was out there and you know what? I loved it! I hope you love yours cause you’re rockin’ it woman!

    Jane, your “after” is absolutely beautiful – LOVE the hair! But what struck me the most is how PRETTY your skin looked “before” – with no makeup! It looked great! You must take really good care of it! That’s natural beauty right there!
