FASHION FRIDAY: Iconic Woman Christmas Makeover WINNER!

January 11 2014 – April Clark

Last December, I did a contest for Christmas.  I asked that people nominate someone or themselves to be the receipient of a MAKEOVER.  Maybe makeover isn't the right way to describe what I wanted to do, rather I wanted to bless someone with hair, makeup, styling, nails... the works!  We received entries that boasted on deserving women and the winner is Cliffee Brinkley Young, from Raleigh, NC, wife, professional and mother of three. 
She writes:

Hello there. I am in my opinion an Iconic woman. I have had the pleasure of having 3kids that I adore. Since then I have been assisting women and children at looking their best as a stylist. Somewhere I lost a little pizazz and need help. Please select me for the fashion makeover. Besides it would make a great birthday gift. 12/17! 


Congratulations Cliffee!  



We started by presenting Cliffee with her gifts! She received Iconic Cosmetics brush set, Iconic Luxury Nail Colour Lacquer, accessories, and a dress!


First, we did the makeup application by April.  We wanted to go subtle glam for her makeup application.  Her eyes and lips were a iridescent shimmer like her dress!





Cliffee has beautiful locks.  Gerri Vereen of #gerristylesmyhair gave her a cute up-do.  Gerri twisted her hair to make a beautiful coil pattern.


You can book your appointment with Gerri by calling 919-371-8218 or emailing her at  Gerri is located is 1604 N. Market Street Suite 108 in Raleigh, NC.




Next, it was spa manicure by Crystal Clark of NAIL YEAH! Crystal painted her nails in Iconic Luxury Nail Colour, Raspberry Beret. NAIL YEAH! is located at 5300 Six Forks Road in Raleigh, NC to book call 919-438-3274





The accessories were from Imago Dei Boutique.  To add to the glam of the dress, Tiffany, owner of Imago Dei Boutique, suggested we do thin  bangles, and these cascading gem earrings.  We added a versitale clutch with diamond-like detailing.  Check out their online store for fab finds like these!









Special thank you to Pamper Me Pretty Boutique for gifting Cliffee with this beautiful dress.  The dress is from their Queen Collection.  It is a sequin dolman sleeve dress in gold.  The dress comes in xs-xl and 1x-2x.  To order contact





Look at that smile! All she could talk about was going home to surprise her husband! This is definitely a date-night look for Valentine's Day. Have fun!







Cliffee and April, CEO of Iconic Lifestyle


Yes, Cliffee you are an ICONIC WOMAN! Not because of your new look but because of your heart.  Thank you for allowing us to be a blessing to you! Enjoy your new look and gifts.  Up next, her complementary closet renovation!  We love what we do!
