This year, Hrush (StyledbyHrush) and I decided to do a Mother’s Day Makeover Giveaway at my studio in Sherman Oaks, Lilit’s Makeup Studio. We would chose 2 Mothers’ that we believed best deserved and needed these makeovers. We posted info about the giveaway in May and asked people to email us as to why they, or someone they know, should win the makeover. Now, we knew this would be hard…but we didn’t realize how hard. We got over 100 emails from daughters, sons, co-workers, granddaughters, you name it! Reading these emails was a very emotional experience for Hrush & I. But the hardest part would be having to pick only 2. We chose 2, because we knew there was no way we could pick 1! But let me tell you…we cut it down to 10 and we were stuck! You realize what a hard battle everyone is fighting and you just want to help everyone. But unfortunately, our time would not allow us. So first, we want to say THANK YOU for everyone who submitted into the giveaway and taking your time to share your stories with us. We hope to continue this tradition, so there will always be next year! With days of reading, debating and eliminating, we finally chose our top 2 winners. Amelia Serrano and Elizabeth Prudencio both shared their heartfelt stories about their mothers. We decided to keep their stories private. We understand that everyone is fighting their own battle; but given the current circumstances, these 2 ladies were in desperate need for a lift in life. Giving them something to smile about, even if it’s for a short period of time. Both these ladies came in very shy and quiet, but at the end of their makeover, they couldn’t stop smiling! God bless Amelia and Elizabeth for being such amazing daughters. We coordinated both their makeovers to be on a special day where their daughters would take them out to a nice evening. Once again, thank you all for sharing your stories with us, we truly appreciate it and wish the best of luck to all the moms who have given up so much to do what they do. We love you. We have made a short video clip that we would love to share. Please search YouTube for “Lilit’s Makeup Studio”. Much Love, Hrush & Lilit. *Please like and subscribe to our studio channel "Lilit's Makeup Studio" for updates on what goes on here at the studio* Thank you!
