The primary focus of this event was circling around the idea of "Giving Back" and opening our doors at Lilit's Makeup Studio to women in the community who have endured unfortunate battles with Breast Cancer. Being a widely known studio, we wanted to use our popularity for a good cause and uplift the lives of numerous women going through such a difficult time. We hosts a "Survivor Makeover" contest which were nominated through their friends or family. We wanted to not only raise awareness but spread positivity throughout the community and show out appreciation for beautiful women fighting such an ugly disease.
Our team was ready to go 8am to glam our special guests with makeup, hair, and eyebrow styling. All the nominees came in with their nominators ready for the fabulous day we had set up for them! Ladybugz, Inc. and Pretty Posh Parties setup a beautiful & delicious station with food and dessert all in pink! Our guests shared some of their stories as we drank champagne and got to know each other. Of course with all the laughs, came some tears, but we hope that it was tears of joy! Kris Kan (photographer) and Eric Fim (videographer) captured it all!
After we completed their makeovers, we headed on over to Vertigo Events Venue where they had set up an amazing luncheon for us. Avant Garden had setup beautiful pink floral arrangements for the table and little bouquets for our guests. Karissa from Thrive Cosmetics and nutritionist Elissa Goodman joined us as guest speakers to help motivate and encourage continuous positivity for us all. For every product purchased through Thrive Cosmetics, they donate one product to a woman battling cancer. Elissa shared her story and her battle with us and educated us about the mind & the body and how it connects to healing.
Our guests ended up sharing their stories and journeys with us and the room was once again filled with emotions. We admire these women so much for being so strong and keeping smile on their faces after all they've been through. It was courageous for them to share such a sensitive thing in their life with complete strangers. But there was some comfort in sharing their stories with women who have gone through the same things! They learned, they are not alone.
Another special thanks to ALL of our sponsors that contributed to the goodie bags are guests got to take home!
