Behind the Scenes: Midnight Velvet Feeling Fabulous Contest Makeovers 2013
The Feeling Fabulous Makeovers were, yet again, another huge success. Our winners, Mary Beth and Vickye seemed to thoroughly enjoy the pampering and and fun filled time with us. We started our Chicago weekend with the ladies aboard the luxurious Odyssey. While we dined and danced the ship cruised along the sparkling Windy City skyline. What a wonderful way to set the tone for a very special few days together.
On Sunday we stopped at the photo studio to tape their interviews and proceeded on to the theater where we saw the spectacular Broadway Production of Once. Usually, a standing ovation is a clear indication of how stellar the performance was. It was our luck day! Dinner was enjoyed an Maggiano’s then off to bed for a bright and early call time the next day.
Our first stop on Monday morning was Bird’s Nest salon in Chicago’s trendy Logan Square. Here the ladies were treated to top notch services of new haircuts and color. Once completely coiffed, the winners were whisked away one more time to the photo studio. Here they would get their m. vie Mineral Makeup applications done (by yours truly). This was followed by a wardrobe consultation from Celebrity Fashion Stylist, Marcellas Reynolds. This was a first for us during the makeovers. Marcellas wowed the ladies with amazing choices from the fashion forward Midnight Velvet Fall collection. Once their hair makeup and wardrobe were complete the ladies got to see themselves for the first time on camera. The looks on their faces will say it all when you see them for yourself.
Stay tuned for the final edit of the Feeling Fabulous Makeover Contest video…coming soon to a theater near you! Just kidding:) Please keep an eye on Facebook and the Blog for the amazing before and after results.
