Girls invited to beauty workshop

Experience promotes self-esteem

Young girls are invited to register for this Friday’s Pretty in Pink Makeover Experience, which aims to teach age-appropriate beauty techniques, build confidence and raise funds for the Salvation Army.

The workshop is to be held at The Shops at Morgan Crossing July 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and is powered by a team of women who are professional mentors in makeup artistry, hair styling, fashion styling and photography.

Girls who are enrolled (ages 9-19) will be pampered and educated, receiving personalized makeup consultation and application, as well as hair styling with recommendations to achieve similar results at home.

With the help of a wardrobe stylist, participants will select from a current collection of gowns, dresses and casual wear supplied by Muse Social Fashion House.

Lululemon Athletica Designer Antonia Iamartino is to share her expertise in wardrobe styling, and waxing specialist Jane Brooks will be sculpting eyebrows.

Afterwards, participants will face the camera for their close up.

“Our female photographer helps ease tensions for the photo shoot, making a fun and carefree environment for our girls to embrace the camera,” Pretty in Pink founder Suzanne Smith said in a release. “Pretty in Pink is not a modelling school. The ultimate goal is to build a sense of self-worth and emphasize the girls’ beauty inside and out.”

Smith said the experience is to help young women make a smooth transition from childhood to womanhood.

“We believe that if we give girls the opportunity to see themselves at their very best, we will inspire them to reach for their brightest future.”

Advanced registration is required ($65 includes makeup and hair styling, tutorials, photographer session and an 8×10 photo).

Profits will be donated to the Salvation Army’s human-trafficking program. For more, contact Smith at 778-294-5901 or visit
