* Breakdown of the Month: FREE MAKEOVERS!
What would you do for the chance to get a beauty, fashion, fitness and nutrition makeover? Since the start of Makeover Momma, I’ve received so many emails from stressed out, tired and overworked moms, begging me for makeover advice. Some of the women can’t seem to shake those last post-partum pounds, while others are dealing with irritated complexions or an outdated hair style. This is what gave me the inspiration for a unique, one-of-a-kind experience this summer that I can’t wait to share!

The Goods: The Experts Behind Your Makeover Experience
* The Complexion Makeover: L’oreal Paris
You don’t need another reason to love L’oreal Paris (at least I know I don’t), but they’re still giving you a new one. They’re spoiling all three Makeover Mommas with amazing makeup products from their fresh summer line. If you want clear looking skin this year but are never sure which shade to choose, the folks at L’oreal will personally recommend the right color for your skin tone (and send all the goodies you need to get clear, smooth looking skin). It’s the next best thing to having someone photoshop your complexion every day, except in this case it’s easy to use, it’s perfectly suited to your face and takes mere minutes to apply. You’ll never look back on your old foundation (trust me!)
No one understands stressed out, busy, budgeted moms more than Avon. They have affordable products, multi-tasking alternatives and easy-to-use-options that make my heart go “pitter patter”. But despite my perpetual Avon crush, you will fall madly in love with Jillian Dempsey’s top selling items (even if you’re already in love with her adorable husband). They are perfect for creating that sexy, bold smoky eye that you’ve always wanted, but have never been able to perfect (no sleepless nights with a toddler needed!) I’ve always been amazed at the power of a perfectly perfected, expertly administered smoky eye: your face will pop and you’ll wonder why you never took the time to do this before.
* The Skin Makeover: Brazillian Peel
The brand new Brazillian Peel is the #1 seller on shelves at Sephora, and you’re going to be trying it ahead of the pack. Don’t be scared by the word “peel”: this is the first professional-level glycolic-acid peel attainable at home, but it doesn’t have scary side effects or “red as a lobster” results. Instead, you’ll get instantly smoother, softer and more streamlined skin (just like you would if going to a fancy spa). It will help gently remove dead skin cells, visible wrinkles or pesky age spots, by gradually chipping away at years of damage. Valued at $78, you’ll use the treatment once per week over the next 4 weeks…. it’s like a good night’s sleep in a box!
* The Tan Makeover: Beautisol Summer Glow Beautikit
I recently gave myself my own summer glow makeover by finally trying out self tanner after years of only “dabbling”. I was amazed at how easy the new formulas can be and how realistic the shades have become. Thankfully, Beautisol is one of the best self tanners on the market, because it was created by the Self Tanning Queen herself Sinead Norenius. Sinead tried every single self tanner on the market for years, until she finally figured out the key elements to the perfect formula (and thus Beautisol was born!) By using the simply Summer Glow Beautikit, you can get an all over “back from the beach” look, without streaky, smelly and silly results. It gives you an instantly bronzed look (so you can see where you’re applying), doesn’t turn orange, and is even packed with anti-aging ingredients… does it get more perfect?
* The Body Makeover: Bliss Fat Girl Slim Treatment Kit
As if the name isn’t enough reason to completely adore this kitschy product line, the results will have you sold in no time. This cellulite reduction treatment from Bliss is perfect for those troublesome areas you can’t seem to fight off with diet and exercise. The kit is packed with revolutionary, cult-hit products that are like squeezing a weekend health retreat into your bathroom. Featuring FatGirlSlim (a caffeine-packed cream that reduces cellulite), FatGirlScrub (to slough off bumpy skin), FatGirlSleep (for a slimming pre-bed treatment), and FatGirlSlimulator (a one-of-a-kind massage tool designed to boost circulation and eliminate lumps and bumps). Bikini here you come!
* The Hair Makeover: Dove Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner
What’s a makeover worth if you have dry, frizzy, damaged hair in the end? (Hint: not at a lot). Luckily, the fabulous Dove (who has positive female advertisements and healthy product options) are topping themselves again by treating the Makeover Momma winners to their new, creamy conditioner. Designed specifically to heal and repair over-processed locks, even beauty professionals and product “shnoras” are fans of this brand new treatment. Women see a noticeable difference with only a few minutes in the shower (personally, I prefer applying conditioner from root to tip, and leaving in for at least 5 minutes while I shaving so it has ample time to absorb). You can also use this conditioner as a daily serum (applying a dime size amount to frayed ends) or as a protective ointment before heat styling. Silky, soft hair… here you come!
* The Color Makeover: Kelly Van Gogh Master Blend
How much would you pay to have a celebrity stylist and hair coloring expert give you a personal consultation? That’s exactly what super star Kelly Van Gogh is doing for our final three winners. She’ll study your current color, give you personal suggestions for how to improve your look at home, and send you the exact hair color you need to get salon results (without the price tag!) Her dyes are specifically made to give you gorgeous styles without the worry. Whether highlights that can be “frozen”Â at the perfect shade you need or all-over-color that couldn’t be easier to apply… you’ll feel gorgeous in no time!
* The Fitness Makeover: Acacia Fitness DVD’s
Just because you’re getting a makeover doesn’t mean you’re any less of a mom. Finding time to workout at a gym or meet with a personal trainer is nearly impossible with your crazy schedule, so get results at home (and be able to keep them up) with 4 hand-picked DVD’s from Acacia. Each DVD has been chosen to give you a wide range of amazing results: for fat loss, for lengthening, for toning and to cut stress levels (which contributes to extra fat around our bellies). Squeeze in workouts at home, lose weight and feel amazing… can you beat that?
* The Accessory Makeover: Stella & Dot
I adore my friend Elise and her amazing collection of Stella & Dot jewelery. Recently I forced myself to wear a beautiful piece of jewelry every single day for a month (even if it was just the same pair of big, bold earrings), and realized what a difference it really makes in personal style. Simply adding a gorgeous, feminine item to your everyday ensembles can instantly take your look from “simply dressed” to “super stylish”. The best part about Stella & Dot jewelry, however, is that it looks expensive, luxe and chic…. but doesn’t have the overpriced tag to match. Now you can look perfectly put together at all times, without breaking the bank. Fabulous!
