An Image Transformation

On the first episode of The UpDaters, 32 year old Hayley admits to never wearing makeup and always accessorising with giant earrings to create a distraction, “so people don’t look directly at my face”. Looking into Hayley’s makeup bag, Lisa can see that Hayley needs help, especially when it comes to makeup brushes.

It doesn’t take long for Lisa to convince Hayley that makeup can be game-changing when it comes to image. She starts by enhancing Hayley’s best feature, her eyes, and creating a makeup makeover that has Hayley gazing in the mirror at her image transformation with a new confidence that means she even ditches the earrings.
