In the beginning of March I hosted a Miracle Make Over Giveaway on my Facebook Page, and I was impressed by the 137 entries! If you ask me, every woman (and man for that matter) deserve to be spoiled for a day and see themselves with a new look and a new light. However, there could only be one winner, and Ximena Kriete was the lucky one!
Ximena was very excited and a little nervous. The Miracle Make Over included a hair color, style and make up by Trashy Roots Salon and a photo shoot by Slava Bowman Photography. We chatted in advance to decide on the look Ximena wanted to go for. Being a mom of three and a devoted runner, she said that she rarely wears make up, dresses and heels. Naturally, we went exactly for that.

Leslie and Brittany from Trashy Roots Salon took care of Ximena’s hair and make up. They always do a wonderful job!
After she was all ready I had a surprise waiting for her 🙂 A big thank you to Burger Park Limo for making this happen!
Ximena’s new glamorous look fit her like a glove! (So happy we wear the same size dresses, we raided my wardrobe the day before 😉
We were trying to go for a J Lo look – do you think we got it?
Ximena looked absolutely stunning and endured the cold wind in the name of photography!

After our improvised outdoor shoot we went to my studio downtown and took some more photos.
A little different look for her, but she wears it well.
I loved the sleeves of her dress!
Brittany did a wonderful job with Ximena’s make up!
“The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.”
― Yves Saint-Laurent
At the end of the photo shoot, Ximena let me experiment with my artistic vision.
I love the softness of this…
After we were all done, she was back in her running outfit, pumps in hand. Our make over photo shoot was a lot of fun, and I think Ximena enjoyed her new look for a day. She is one of these people who is beautiful with or without make up, but sometimes it’s nice to see yourself in a different light 😉
