Sylvia was nominated for a make- over by her daughter Karen, who is an existing client of ours at itsmycolour. She felt that her mum needed a much deserved treat and was a great opportunity to have a girly day together. Sylvia came along mainly excited with a little bit of trepidation as to what to expect. She turned up wearing black and white which we soon ascertained through having her colours done was too cool for her natural colouring as she is a lovely warm Autumn. Therefore, at her very best in the falling leaf colours, perfect for this time of year.
Nikita our hair stylist soon got to work and put some funky reds and auburn through her hair, a quick trim and then blow dried to a more modern/edgy style.
Gaynor our make-up artist used the itsmycolour mineral make up range to apply tinted primer, foundation, blusher for the face. Her eyes were defined with shadow and eye liner, and finally a red lipstick to complete the new look.* Then back to The Studio for new clothes in her new colours! By this point Sylvia is having a brilliant time, (her smile could light up a room by the way!) and very quickly got into the zone in front of the camera – she is a complete natural and posing like a pro!! So what a difference a day can make in how you look and feel! It is really hard to believe that this lady is 77 years old! She proves to anyone that age is no barrier, it can just give you the con dence to try something new and embrace the opportunities that you have! There will certainly be no fading into the background for this lovely lady! So if you are in need of a re-vamp, a re- boot or just a new lease of life, embrace colour and let the world smile with you! I know that Sylvia is, she may be 77 but she has a lovely new boyfriend called Brian – YOU GO GIRL!!!!
