  Anna Avrett, 51, an architect and mother of three teenagers, is a three-time winner of the Family Y’s Team Lean weight loss competition, losing a total of 60 pounds.


With her weight-loss success in mind, the Family Y contacted us to see if we could give Avrett a Dillard’s Mommy Makeover.

Avrett spent a few hours trying on clothes that would complement her size four figure, including a good number of dresses. She also was able to find the perfect swim suit for the summer. Her favorite look was a tailored Tahari navy polka dot dress combined with pops of red from accessories.

Her next stop was with Leslie Fletcher in the Dillard’s salon. Fletcher colored Avrett’s hair using Aveda’s Full Spectrum deep color line and shampooed and conditioned her hair using Aveda’s Color Conserve line. She trimmed the ends of Avrett’s hair, which will help it naturally turn under at the ends and then used Smooth Infusion products and a flat iron for a sleek, glossy look.

Traci Bodner, Dillard’s Clarins counter manager, got Avrett’s face ready for her “after” shot using the following steps:

• Cleaner: Clarins Cleansing Milk applied using the Clairsonic cleansing machine, which can remove up to six times more makeup than other cleansing methods.

• Toner: Clarins Toning Lotion made with chamomile.

• Moisturizer: Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream. (Bodner says the best time to moisturize is while the skin is still slightly damp from toner.) Bodner used a peanut M&M-sized amount of the cream and warmed it in her hands to activate the ingredients. She then pressed the cream into the skin, rather than rubbing it in.

• Eye treatment: Clarins Advanced Extra Firming Eye Contour Serum. She used a pea-sized amount for both eyes and followed the same warming procedure used with the moisturizer. She then applied the serum starting with the brow bone and then directly underneath the lower lashes.

• Booster: Clarins Beauty Flash Balm which tightens and brightens.

• Spot treatment: Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate. Bodner used this on the lines between Avrett’s eyes and around her mouth.

• Foundation: Skin Illusion Foundation, which is derived from mineral extracts and adds a little luminescence to the skin.

• Concealer: Instant Smooth Light Reflecting Concealer, which covers gray or green tones and under-eye circles.

• Eye base: Instant Light Eye Perfecting base. This product creates a pretty canvas for eye shadow and evens out the color of the lid.

• Eye makeup: The “Earth” palette for eyes. Grayish-navy eyeliner to play up Avrett’s blue eyes. Wonder Perfect mascara in black. Brow powder to fill in brows.
