Hi, this is Wendy. While Allen was busy working alone without me, I got bored. I needed something to do other than blogging about food. That was how this idea was conceived. I wanted to do a makeover project for women in different stages of their lives. Maybe it was because I went through a period of not feeling very confident about myself a few months ago. Frankly, adding another year to my age was not my idea of a happy birthday. I asked Allen to do a photoshoot for me in which I got myself all glam’ed up and dressed up. I lOVED my photos! Let me just say, they were quite an ego booster.
To begin the project, I was looking for someone in her 30’s. Suki had approached Allen and me for a project of her own a couple of months ago. Since then I had my eyes set on her also for mine. ‘I have always felt insecure about my look and shied away from the camera.’ she said. Hard to believe, I know, because she is a natural beauty. But I also know a lot of women felt the same way. That was what prompted me to do this. And I hope to help more women to come out of their shells.
Suki is a no frill girl. On most days, she doesn’t wear any make up and ties her hair in a pony tail. She is very lucky to look pretty au natural! A little make up on her face and a few curls on her hair, she sparkled with her beautiful smile!
‘I am ecstatic looking at these images.’ She sent me a message via Facebook. ‘I’ve never had pictures like these. I love them!’ she said.
Awwww, we think you look absolutely breathtaking, Suki!
‘I like how the makeover brought out what people love most about me – my smile. And how it accentuated other features. For the first time, I can actually look at these images and see myself as beautiful and what others must see when they look at me. It gives me more confidence and optimism.’ she wrote.
I breathed a sign of relief and my heart was full of joy! I think I’ve accomplished what I set out to achieve. I want women to realize how beautiful they are from the inside so that the confidence shines on the outside. Stand up tall and tell the world ‘I AM BEAUTIFUL!’
