“My son is getting married in July and it would be great to get some advice”
It is the season for weddings and we all know how much pressure there is to look good, especially if you’re mother of the groom and know that the pictures from the big day will be around forever! So when a reader got in touch to nominate her sister Annemarie for a No.1 make-over so that she could get some helpful hints and tips before her son’s big day, we were happy to help. Annemarie filled us in on why she was keen to get some advice from the No.1 team...
“I was nominated by my sister for a day of pampering from the No.1 team. My sister felt like I deserved a treat, and I’m so excited I have been asked to come along.
“I’m currently on my own weight loss journey and I feel like learning more about my hair and make-up would give me a much needed boost. My son is getting married in July and it would be great to get some advice on how to look and feel fabulous on the day.
“I’d love to know what beauty products to invest in, it’s hard to know what you should spend money on. When it comes to make-up, I usually get all my advice from my daughter. I actually find myself using her make-up most of the time too. I’m hopeless at applying mascara and would love to try out false lashes – maybe the No.1 team can help me out in that department. “I think wearing make-up can just make you feel a whole lot more confident and special. I certainly feel a bit better when I have it on. The one beauty product I couldn’t live without would have to be lipstick, I never go out without it on.
“I hope the No.1 team can help me feel glamorous, but I do like to keep myself looking natural at the same time. I don’t want to just throw on loads of products and hope for the best, I want to know what suits my skin and what can give me a slight boost without looking like a completely different person.
“As Mother of The Groom in July, I would like to feel confident on the day. When it comes to style, I love Holly Willoughby – she always gets it right. She’ll be my style inspiration for the big day. “
We were keen to show Annemarie some simple tricks. And that she can highlight her best features without feeling caked in makeup, all it takes is a little know-how.
We also wanted to help Annemarie realise alise that she already looks fab. She has great skin, healthy thick hair and lovely bold blue eyes, all that’s needed is a little education on how to style her hair so it lasts all day, makes her eyes pop and enhances her great skin.
