No.1 Reader Make-over

“I hope a make-over will give me the con­fi­dence boost that I re­ally need right now...”

No. 1 Magazine - - CONTENTS -

A few weeks ago we fea­tured Cathie’s friend Anne in the No.1 make-over. These amaz­ing ladies met at a Glas­gow be­reave­ment sup­port group when each sadly lost a loved one.

“My hus­band passed away last year af­ter a bat­tle with can­cer, and I’ve felt a bit lost since then. Our be­reave­ment group are cur­rently plan­ning a hol­i­day and I hope a No.1 make-over will give me a much needed con­fi­dence boost for go­ing away.

“I found it very dif­fi­cult to find mo­ti­va­tion af­ter my hus­band died. I re­ally had to push my­self. I still feel that I’m not back to the per­son I was be­fore, but I hope a No.1 make-over could be an­other step for­ward.

“When my friend Anne asked if I would like to take part, I jumped at the chance. I feel I’m in a rut, in need of a chal­lenge and would like to learn more when it comes to beauty. I don’t wear make-up very often and I would like the con­fi­dence to start wear­ing it again. I used to wear it all the time when I was younger, but I don’t bother now.

“I’m hop­ing to learn how to use dif­fer­ent prod­ucts. Since my hair is be­gin­ning to go grey, so are my eye­brows and I’d like to learn how to draw them in cor­rectly. I’m usu­ally too ner­vous to try things be­cause I’m wor­ried about what it’ll look like if I get it wrong.

“My beauty rou­tine is pretty sim­ple. I start off ev­ery morn­ing with a splash of wa­ter and then some mois­turiser. I’ve been do­ing this same rou­tine for the past 50 years!

“The thing I am most self-con­scious about is my lips. Ap­ply­ing lip­stick can be a prob­lem for me be­cause I have small, thin lips. I’m wor­ried about look­ing like a clown if the colour is too vi­brant. It would be great to learn some tips on how to make them ap­pear fuller.

“When it comes to my hair, I’m much more ad­ven­tur­ous. I de­cided to go for a red flash in my hair be­cause I wanted to do some­thing dif­fer­ent. I wanted to make it stand out. I tend to go to the hair­dressers ev­ery six weeks, and de­cided one day to just go for it!

“How­ever, my hair is very thick and can be a bit un­ruly and coarse at times! I’m hop­ing to learn how to tame it but in a way that’s man­age­able for day-to-day styling!
