GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Just in time for Mother's Day, some special grandmas are getting makeovers so they can look like "glam-mas". 

The makeovers happened at Senior Action in Greenville where more than a dozen women signed up to get pampered by a makeup artist and fashion stylist.

Organized by SYNERGY HomeCare, the pampering is meant to make these moms and grandmas look good and feel good.

Mark Sayegh of SYNERGY HomeCare says, “The most important job in the world is being a mom. Unfortunately, we don’t recognize it every day, all year all the time.  We certainly can take some this week with Mothers Day to recognize and say thanks to moms.”

At age 75, Mimi Bachtel says she doesn’t wear makeup every day anymore but she’s got plenty of events coming up and she works temp jobs every now and then so she wants to look her best.

She says, “I do have two weddings and a graduation coming up. Of course as a grandma, you want to look good so I thought maybe they have some tips and tricks they can teach me.”

Batchel and the other participants were thrilled with their makeover results.

Bachtel says, “When you know you look good it inspires confidence. You walk differently and you carry yourself differently. It’s just nice to walk into a room or into an event knowing you truly look good. That means a lot to women of all ages.”

SYNERGY HomeCare is sponsoring another Mother's Day makeover at Pendleton Manor in Greenville on Friday.
