This mom was about to attend her 30th high school reunion, so she was seriously reconsidering a nice makeover and weight loss. And when she signed up to appear on a makeover TV show, the results stunned her and her son.
In 2017, Michelle Moyers, then 48, from Virginia, planned to change her dreary, everyday look and become a little more fashionable.
Michelle had started planning to lose weight in order to attend her upcoming high school reunion. And although it took some effort, she was able to shed 40 pounds (approx. 18 kg).
It was at this juncture that she won tickets to attend the Today Show. In addition, she was also selected to participate in the Ambush Makeover segment of the show, which focused on transforming a person into a stunning version of themselves.
When the day arrived, she went for the show. Michelle, however, had her reservations as to how successful it would be in changing her look. Little did she know that she was in for a surprise.
A professional styling team was waiting for Michelle. They had already decided how they were going to give her a glam look. Included in the team were popular stylists Louis Licari and Jill Martin.
Louis handled Michelle’s hair. In fact, she requested him to cut down her long hair. He obliged and sculpted her hair in a way that would suit her facial structure. And while the stylists were doing their jobs, Michelle had no idea how she was being transformed.
“I saw the transformation as we were doing it, and I said ‘you have no idea how beautiful you are.’ She didn’t have a clue,” said Louis, reported MailOnline.
And when the time came for her to enter the show’s spotlight, she walked onto the set. And her son Daniel, who was kept blindfolded, removed the obstruction from his eyes and looked at his mom.
He was literally stunned and couldn’t hold back the tears. “You look amazing, Mom,” Daniel said. “You look so beautiful!”
Michelle also became emotional after receiving appreciation from her son.
And when she looked at her face in the mirror, she too became teary-eyed. In fact, she had to ask for tissues to ensure that the tears wouldn’t ruin her makeup.
Michelle went back home a happy woman. And given that she has now seen how a little makeup does wonders, she plans to lose more weight and look the best version of herself just in time to attend the high school reunion.
