It’s Makeover Time!

It’s makeover time again!

Julie and Me!

October 2011 was our first Ambush Pittsburgh Makeover! Julie Marckisotto from Pittsburgh Makeup asked me to join her in a day of pampering for someone who could use a little tlc!  We enjoyed so much surprising MaryBeth at work and doing her makeover.  We got to work doing a little hair and makeup and then a shopping spree! It was so much fun seeing MaryBeth smile and feel more confident and happy because she looked and felt really good!

Check out http://ambushpittsburgh.com for more albums of all of our before and afters.

We’ve tried to do a makeover every few months. We’ve taken a little break and now we’re ready to get our hands on someone new! Please contact us if you know anyone who would enjoy a day of beauty and pampering! http://facebook.com/ambush-pittsburgh.com.

Julie is an amazing makeup artist and she organizes the whole day! She gets nominations from all over. She reads every submission and chooses a person who needs a day of pampering.  MaryBeth, our first makeover, is someone who always is doing things for someone else.  She puts herself last and doesn’t take alot of time to do things to make herself happy.

Julie and I donate our time and services and usually we are able to get some good discounts from clothing stores. Often friends and family of our nominees will donate money for the shopping spree!  Julie has been able to find great photographers who are willing to hang out with us for the day and capture some good moments. We also try to find someone to offer us fashion styling help as well.

We’d love to find other people who’d like to help donate their talents and store discounts with us! Stay tuned for the next before and after makeover stories from Ambush Pittsburgh!
