The Top 20 semi-finalists of the "Back to You Makeover" garnered over 250,000 votes. All of the Top 20 received a prize and Margie was the grand prize winner. She and her sister, Judi, were treated to a round trip airfare plus hotel in New York City on September 9th and 10th. Margie spent her first evening in NYC with Bridgette Raes, style expert, shopping for a new wardrobe at Macy's.

Wednesday morning, Margie and her sister, Judi, paid a visit to Dr. Lenora Felderman, a leading NYC dermatologist practicing at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center and Lenox Hill Hospital, where she was treated to skin rejuvenation. Next stop was the Cocoon Salon, where Matthew Shields, who had flown in from Beverly Hills, was waiting for her. Matthew is an accomplished hair stylist at Sally Hershberger whose clients have included Jane Fonda and Meg Ryan. Matthew used Phyto Volume on Margie's hair to give it thickness without stickiness and then Sally Hershberger's Style Primer and Supreme Head Shagg Spray to add style.

After Matthew rushed off to the airport, Raychel Wade, makeup expert and owner of Cheek to Chic in NYC, arrived to give Margie an expert makeup lesson. Raychel used Strobe Cream, which gives the skin a great glow and comes through the foundation. Next she applied Select Moisture cover under her eyes and around her nose to eliminate any dark circles and redness, and touched up the rest of her face with Face and Body foundation and a tiny bit of Blot Powder. All of the MAC products used to create Margie's new look can be found on SmartNow.
