Courtney used all MCoBeauty makeup, with every single product priced under $30, available at Woolworths, Big W, and online at mcobeauty.com.

One of Courtney's main tips when applying the foundation to Celeste's face is to check from all angles, to make sure you check you've filled in your whole face.

"I think people forget that everybody can see you from all of the angles," she said.

"So even if you can't see them you've really got to get into all of the little spots."


In response Celeste pointed out that she doesn't "really take selfies".

"You don't take selfies? But that's what you do for a living." Courtney asked.

To which Celeste responded: "I just take inappropriate photos of myself."

Earlier this year, Celeste opened up about one of her famous parody photos, revealing that she'll 'never look at the picture she posted to her Instagram page parodying a photo of Kendall Jenner wearing a 'micro thong' again.

On the Fitzy & Wippa show in February, Celeste was asked if there was any photo a celebrity posted where she thought 'I just can’t do this one, it’s just crosses a a line and I can’t come back from that if I do it?'

"Over the years, maybe there have been a few where I’ve gone 'I don’t reckon anyone needs to see that will just stop there'. However the photos that I parody now are getting more full on, like the models, what they post really is getting more full on so I just end up going with it," Celeste replied.

"There are some that I can’t look at. That Kendall Jenner one, I’m happy it got out there and everyone thinks it’s great but I will never look at that again now."

By the end of the makeover Celeste was clearly blown away by her transformation, exclaiming: "Holy s**t"

"School drop off is going to look very different from now on," she added.
