"Hello" from Barbara Bastian, years ago, my grandmother once told me, “If you only have a tube of lipstick, put it on and you’ll feel good.” I have always remembered this along with my mother telling me, “Also make sure you clean you face and change your hair style daily.” So looking back on it, it has been ingrained in me to take care of myself. So, once I became of age and saw my first wrinkle and felt my body falling apart, I knew I need to make some changes. On my quest to reinvent myself, I found it hard to get the answers I needed. After being displaced from my favorite profession, I decided to take my passion and make it a career. Then was born…ATLANTA’S MAKEOVER MAMA and Atlanta's Skin Rejuvenation Center .
Atlanta’s Makeover Mama is locally owned and operated by Barbara Bastian. I am a native of Monroe, Georgia and a graduate of Monroe Area High School in Monroe, Georgia. I attended the Cosmetology Esthetics's Program at Athens Area Technical College in Athens Georgia. While in school I obtained Presidents’ List, Synergie Peel Certification and a Certificate of Cosmetic Esthetics's along with my State Licensing from the State of Georgia Board of Cosmetology.
Upon completion of the esthetics program in Athens, I ventured out to work in the Metro Atlanta area where I gained a wealth of experience. I have obtained the following certifications: Syneron (eMatirx), GentleMAX Laser, Brazilian Wax Techniques, Chemical Exfoliation, Advanced Paramedical Training, The Art of Assisting Makeup Artist, Janssen Independent Representative Certificate, and Skin Script Organic Peel Certification.
I enjoy giving back to my community by actively participating in regularly programs such as: Free home Bible Study Programs, Beauty Becomes You and other special needs programs.
I am an active supporter of the Georgia Alliance of Aesthetics Professionals and Empowering Women to Succeed.
I am passionate about good skin care and I feel that the power of touch is lasting and encourages longevity. This passion is what has encouraged me to make my services available to all regardless of age, income, gender or ethnicity.
As the makeover mama, I specialize in aging, problematic skin and ethnic skin care. I truly believe that we all have beautiful skin from head to toe and that we have to protect our skin because it protects us.
As the wife of a super supportive husband and the mother of two handsome young men of whom I am really blessed to have in my life; I believe in putting the family and my spiritual worship first in my life. I enjoy studying the Bible and sharing what I have learned with others, reading self improvement material. Zig Ziglar is one of my favorite motivational speakers. In addition to reading, I enjoy sewing, exercising and just enjoying my friends and family.
Thank you for visiting my website and I know once you meet me and experience one of the services you will also appreciate my passion for helping you understand and improve your skin concerns one treatment at a time.
