Her face is cropped for client privacy and anonymity.
I taught her how to dress to suit her changing body shape from hormone treatment, and how less is always more in the style stakes.
I showed how to cover any residual beard shadow with makeup tricks which would be easy for her to do on a day to day basis-without resorting to heavy coverage camouflage.
I also reshaped her eyebrows which made an enormous difference to feminising the face.

This was the makeover I did in July, for my lovely Style of Wight magazine “win a makeover” Winner Isobelle.
She and I worked together over 3 months on a diet/healthy eating regime. We looked through her wardrobe at which styles and colours worked best for her body shape and colouring, and selected those items which should go to charity as they weren’t going to be worn again. We discussed makeup, makeup brands, makeup tips and how to enhance her lips and eyebrows with clever makeup application.
During that time, I consulted with the brilliant hairdresser JoJo at Freshwater on what we wanted to achieve with a new more flattering haircut and colour for Isobelle’s face shape and skin tones.
The dress I selected for Isobelle to wear was from a selection of evening dresses to hire from Posh Frocks in Sandown, Isle of Wight. I chose this black and white evening dress for Isobelle to wear, as the wide, off the shoulder, light coloured neckline created a slimming illusion, balancing her body shape.
The large selection of dresses to buy or hire in Posh Frocks in sizes 8-24 were great value for when you need something for that special occasion. Especially when you are a curvy lady and its often difficult to find that perfect dress to buy.
Isobelle had lost 3 stone by the time of the photoshoot, and looked wonderful,
But my lifestyle and style makeovers aren’t simply for a day.
They are a life change plan to take forward, so I hope that all the hints and tips that I offered Isobelle will stay with her for the future.
