Makeup Bag Makeover

Hi Everyone! Check out this post by Mackenzie Image Consulting.

Ramblings of a client consultation – Success over Mother’s Day

We at MIC don’t usually toot our own horn, but when we received an email from Alesya, of Alesya Bags, we couldn’t resist sharing! We rarely get a chance to showcase client consults due to confidentiality reasons so we’re fortunate to have permission to share this client experience:

Alesya purchased a special Mother’s Day package, including a color analysisstyle assessment and makeup makeover, to surprise her Mom who was visiting. Her mom is now retired and not having to wear suits on a daily basis, which let’s face it, would throw any woman off when it comes to getting dressed. Changes in life bring changes in our wardrobe and style. It is something that has to be addressed, or you end up feeling overwhelmed. Alesya’s mom still wanted to look nice and put together, but wasn’t sure how to accomplish this with her new casual lifestyle.

We started by discussing her love of fashion, specific “looks” she was inspired by, as well as outfits she would never wear, all prompted by our style exercises and profiles. We went through MIC’s Pinterest style boards and defined the style she was now – Sporty – and the style she wanted to be – Elegant. After getting a solid grasp of her lifestyle and style goals, we moved on to the color consultation where we discovered the ideal colors and textures she should be wearing. She now has a small custom color kit to keep in her purse to refer to when she shops. We also went suggested ideas for accentuating her small waist and hourglass figure. After the consult, Alesya’s mom received an email with her coloring details, body type, style goals, store suggestions, tips, and examples. This way she had a feedback report of our consult and a starting point for developing her style.

Alesya sat with us during the consult and was kind enough to give us some great feedback:

  • “The follow up email from Megan is almost as valuable as the actual consultation!”
  • “Her whole life, my mom thought she had a triangle shaped body. Megan quickly informed her that she has a hourglass figure. Revelation!”
  • “The personalized color analysis was fantastic. Most surprising? The she looked better in shiny white than matte!”
  • “The Pinterest boards were SO helpful. It really made both me and my mom see she was dressing sporty while she wanted to dress elegantly. It also helped us see the difference between the two looks and what she was missing to transition from one look to the other.”

After my Color & Style Assessment, Kristin Pavo, owner of Finger Paint Makeup preformed a fabulous makeup consult.  Kristin went through all of her existing makeup, evaluating and discussing each product. She then gave product and several color suggestions. She put together three different looks for Alesya’s mom – giving variety without overwhelming her with too many options.

Alesya’s thoughts on Kristin’s consult:

  • “Kristin is, without question, the best make-up person we had ever met with. Her knowledge and love for the subject is second to none. She is a FIND!”
  • “The very next morning we got an email from Kristin with all her follow up suggestions. Amazing. My mom has already purchased several (if not all) of the items on her shopping list.”
  • “Every morning, my mom takes about 2 hours to get ready. I thought it was because of her perfectionist/high maintenance nature. It’s not! My mom really loves make-up – she said it brings out the artist in her. I had no idea. Kristin taught me something new about my own mother! Unbelievable.”

To Sum Up:

  • “Besides a new grandchild, it’s no exaggeration to say Megan and Kristin were the highlight of the year for my mom. And as the gift giver, I was thrilled to make her happy! Best Mother’s Day gift ever.”

We love helping our clients’ look and feel better about themselves, along with making their lives easier. The client feedback we receive is essential for us to maintain the value of our consultations. Thank you, Alesya, for kindly sharing your experience!
