When you have children, you might fall into the trap of believing that they will be close by forever. You build your whole life around the kids and forget to take into account that they’ll be adults one day and they’ll be leaving you to pursue their own dreams.
Sometimes parents just neglect their relationship as a couple and focus too much on the children, ending up being two strangers when the kids eventually leave home.
For Michelle and her husband, things didn’t go that bad, but they had certainly focused on their children over the past years.
That is, until they left home to build their own lives, careers, and families.
At that moment, empty nesters Michelle and her husband realized that it was about time that they did something for themselves.
57-year-old Michelle looked older than she really was. She liked a natural approach on makeup, so much so that it didn’t show at all. Feeling that she had spent much of her life taking care of others, she thought that it was time she did something for herself.
And that’s when she decided to apply for a makeover with the MakeoverGuy, Christopher Hopkins.
As you can see in the video below, when Michelle arrived at the studio she looked like a middle-aged woman. Her skin was pretty dull, her hair was nothing special and in desperate need of a change. Her clothes were boring and, in general, there was nothing fresh about her.
However, she knew that Christopher could help her change her style, and, possibly, her whole life after that.
As the MakeoverGuy explains in the description of the video, this year the show is focusing more on the stories behind makeovers. They are trying to help these women find themselves and, through this process, discover the most suitable style for each one of them.
Michelle, like the rest of the women who participated in the new season, spent three days with the team, trying to get in touch with her inner self.
“The selected women spent three days with us and took the journey of personal discovery and transformation,” reads the description of the video.
Hopkins, in his Facebook page, shared details about his experience with Michelle. As he explains, at first they did her makeup according to her instructions, but he wasn’t satisfied.
“She wanted to look ‘unpretentious, approachable, and fresh.’ So, we did minimal makeup. When finished, I said, ‘NOW, let’s do it how I want to do it.'”
And they did. Using more makeup- actually, more of everything- the MakeoverGuy team brought out the inner beauty of Michelle and made her shine through her new clothes and hairstyle.
“Making a woman naturally STUNNING takes much more time, more makeup, applied in the right ways. The result is a jaw-dropping ‘after,'” Hopkins explains.
Indeed, Michelle’s “after” was a revelation. With short hair and flawless makeup, she ended up looking about a decade younger than she really is.
At the end of the video, she looked really happy and comfortable in her new, fresh self.
The video below is only a trailer of the episode that is coming up soon. Head over to see how stunning Michelle looked after the makeover and make sure you don’t miss the longer version that will be airing in the near future.
