Makeover Magic – The winner of my photo shoot with Abigail K

A few months back I ran a competition along with Abigail K Photography to win a makeover & photo shoot and finally the day has arrived when I can share a few of the photo’s of the winner’s gorgeous shoot!

Lisa Georgiades was the lucky lady so I asked her to share a bit more about the experience here…

“I arrived at Abigail’s studio on Friday morning and was met with smiling faces, coffee and yummy muffins. The oh-so-talented makeup artist, Kristine from Kruz 4 Make-up was there to make me look beautiful and work her makeover magic.

I had decided on three distinct looks for my shoot: Old Hollywood, Fun and Silly, and a somewhat sexy Glamour look.

So, armed with my outfits and my Pinterest boards, Kristine and Abigail got to work re-creating me into a work of art.

I must admit I was a little (ok a LOT) nervous as several hours in front of the camera with the subject being just me, me , ME the whole time was somewhat intimidating. But let me tell you, working with these professionals made it feel as natural as eating chocolate (something I find naturally easy).

A major bonus was being able to wear one of the fabulous Molteno Creations last minute as my chosen dress for the Hollywood look ended up translating as a little drab on camera. To be honest, it made all the difference. I instantly felt like a star of the silver screen.

Abigail was there every step of the way to make me feel comfortable – guiding me in each detail, angle and pose to bring about the best ‘me’.
