    That made me chuckle. You're not the first to do that!!!

    A lot of these makeovers going around at the mo judging from the threads in the 'I won' forum. Hate these "no obligation to buy" photo places. They charge an absolute fortune if you do want the photos. :mad:

    My step daughter and her friend went to one. They live in London already though so it was easier for them. They got a make over and some photos taken but when they said they couldnt afford the photos they said they had to take the make up off before they left.

    I used to work as a make up artist in London too and came across companies like these many a time. The make up artists arn't qualified beauticians or anything and they really don't have a clue what they are doing and IMO the photos arn't very good either.

    I just got a call from these guys, he wanted me to give my card details over the phone for £80 as a deposit :rolleyes: , told him to sling his hook... kept calling me "darling", and arguing with me... :o I hung up on him.

    Plus seeing as I live in Belfast, I had no idea how I was going to get over to London to do it!!!! :confused:
