It's great to give back

Every year I participate in at least 3 charity functions providing makeup or hair services. It's my way of showing appreciation for the gifts I've been given. This year I had the opportunity to work with the WNBA Chicago Sky charity fashion show, The Danny Clark Foundation for Cirque de Lumiere fundraiser and their teen camp (makeup demonstrations). Each charity had causes that were very dear to my heart. Here is a recap of my latest charity event.

I had the pleasure of helping out at the Trenz Salon "100 free makeovers" event for cancer survivors and women living in shelters. I began my day doing full makeup makeovers to anyone who wanted it. After a few hours of makeup it was time to get on to some hair. There were so many ladies who still needed their hair styled. I was happy to help out. I cannot express how much fun I had from all the smiles that were given and jokes that were cracked.

The ladies being serviced were so happy to get a "day of beauty" and reminded me of why I started doing makeup. After all my companies motto is "Every woman has an inner bombshell, we help bring her to the forefront". Each lady was so appreciative of the experience and so was I.

There were so many great stylist who all donated their time. This event was such a blessing for all involved.
