Reader Make-over

No. 1 Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

Ev­ery is­sue one lucky reader gets a spe­cial day of pam­per­ing from No.1’ s Make-over Team.

Is there any­thing bet­ter in life than a re­ally good friend who’s there for you through thick and thin? We think not! And one per­son who agrees is our reader, El­iz­a­beth, who got in touch with us to nom­i­nate her best friend Jen for a make-over. She wrote to us say­ing, “I can’t be­gin to ex­press ex­actly how spe­cial a per­son Jen is. She plays com­pli­ments down and of­ten says ‘I try my best’, but she’s 1000 times bet­ter than that! “I re­signed from a job, fol­low­ing a threat of bul­ly­ing and when the fi­nan­cial strain and pos­si­bil­ity of los­ing my home de­vel­oped – Jen stepped in. Three years on things are fan­tas­tic! I think she de­serves this treat of a spe­cial pam­per day now be­cause this year she turns 30 and I want to do ev­ery­thing I can to make it a year to re­mem­ber.” So, we in­vited Jen along for a pam­per day at No.1 HQ and she told us, “To say I was shocked that my friend, El­iz­a­beth, had ar­ranged this make-over would be a bit of an un­der­state­ment!” Although she was de­lighted, she was also very ner­vous, “I am not com­fort­able with get­ting my pic­ture taken nor­mally, but I was put at ease by hav­ing my best friend

“I can’t be­gin to ex­press how spe­cial a per­son Jen is. When I nearly lost my home, she stepped in. She de­serves this.”

here with me on the day.” Our make-over took place just be­fore Jen turned 30 and we wanted to help her nail the ef­fort­lessly glam, yet laid-back sum­mer vibe, that looks amaz­ing but can be a lit­tle tricky to achieve. All you need is a good help­ing of bronzer, a bold eye colour, lash­ings of lip­gloss and some hair teas­ing paired with a big bright smile and you’ve got it! Af­ter her make-over day, Jen told us, “I loved my make-up so much, but be­cause I’d been ner­vous, I felt re­lieved the pic­ture part was over! But thanks for choos­ing me, it’s such a nice keep­sake to re­mind me of the last few weeks of my 20’s.”
