The most amazing makeovers

Just had to share with you what Beauty Bible has been doing over the past two evenings.  Some of you may know, our chosen charity is Centrepoint, the charity for homeless under-25s - and several times a year, we run a two-evening 'Make A Difference Makeover' programme.
     Step one:  transforming the girls into goddesses (see above) - with A-list help, this time round, from none other than the Lancôme BAFTA Red Carpet team of make-up pros - who'll be whisking their brushes over dozens of famous faces before this Sunday's Awards ceremony - and lovely Adam Reed and his team from Percy & Reed, the super-talented X-Factor hairstylists.
     Step two:  work on helping this amazing young women - many who've had very traumatic events in their lives - to tap into that I-look-fab-so-I-feel-fab confidence in their lives, moving forward.  (Our amazing friend Sharron Lowe - beauty industry 'success coach' - leads those sessions, and created the 'workbook' that the girls take home.)
     We are so happy to tap into our Little Pink Book of so-generous beauty contacts and help in a hands-on way to help boost these young women's self-esteem. And the feedback we've been getting for the past 10 years says:  it does, it really does. So:  huge thanks to everyone on the Make A Difference Makeover committee - Sharron, Michelle Boon, Kirsty Lewis and Sarah Duguid - for all their hard work.  If you'd like to do your bit to help these young women turn their lives around, just click below. (Centrepoint was the first charity Prince William chose to be patron of, and we can't speak highly enough of the work they do.)
     And don't worry:  next week, we'll be back to blogging the fluffy stuff. But today, we're feeling too humbled by being privileged enough to touch these young women's lives.
