Atlanta Prom Makeup Fundraiser - $50 Hair & Makeup - Proceeds Go To Charity!

Hi Guys,

I'm excited to announce a really great opportunity.  I'm not only co-founder of the Atlanta Makeup Meetup group but I'm also a part of the executive board of the Non-Profit Generacion Latina, Inc or GLINC. This is an organization devoted to empowering Latino Youth in Georgia through out-of the box education during after school sessions, field trips and community service projects.

The prom for Campbell high school is on May 3rd. 100% of the proceeds for the Prom Makeup will benefit GLINC in order to help us fund the programming, food for students, field trips, etc. Currently, the Executive Board runs the organization solely by donations and out of pocket expenses.
I will be there along with Makeup Artists from my Meetup Group providing Makeup Services for High School students and anyone interested in getting makeup done no matter what the occasion!

We've partnered with the Paul Mitchell School in Atlanta to offer an amazing package:

$50 for Hair and Makeup, what a steal! 

The event will take place at Paul Mitchell School, 887 West Marietta St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318(404) 888-0070

In order to book services, please pay a $15 deposit to via PayPal - this is preferred so we can make sure we have another artist volunteers.  The remaining balance will be paid at the time of service on May 3rd in CASH.  Appointments will be from 2pm-5pm.  Please also email with questions or to schedule your appointments.

Please spread the word to anyone in Atlanta who may want makeup and hair services on Saturday for Prom or any occasion!

My CoverFX Find Your Shade - Sephora Event!

Hi Bellas,  

I have some really exciting news!  I am hosting my first event with CoverFX as one of their 2014 Brand Ambassadors.  I wanted to personally invite you to attend the CoverFX Find Your Shade Event this coming Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014 from 5:30pm-7:30pm at Lenox Mall.  

I’m super excited to be a brand ambassador for CoverFX and it’s really a dream come true to host an event at a beauty mecca like Sephora.  I’d love for you all to attend, cover the event, get shade matched and walk away with full sized product and discount codes.   If you can also please share this on your social media networks/blogs, that would be absolutely fantastic!  It’s open to the public and completely free!  

CoverFX is flying in their Chief Innovation Officer and founding member of MAC Cosmetics Vic Casale to speak about the amazing ingredients behind this product.  There will also be CoverFX artists there to help match your perfect shade and finish – the first 30 to get shade matched will receive a free gift!  I personally recommend the CoverFX Sunlight Illuminator - my fav!

Please see attached flyer for details and to share with your friends and fellow makeup junkies - did I mention it's a free event! 

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at 

You can RSVP on Facebook

Hope to see you there!

Very Natural Maid of Honor Makeup

Hi Bellas,
