What I love about beauty is that it is timeless and that it can be found in every woman. Last week I was extremely blessed to provide a little TLC for some lovely ladies at the Sue Ginsburg Community Center via the Pelham Parkway NORC program. The Sue Ginsburg Community Center & the Pelham Parkway NORC are great programs that are a valuable resource for the community’s seniors. Seniors can drop in for a hot lunch, check their email, get their blood pressure checked or any one of the other services available, it truly is appreciated. At our Timeless Beauty event, I was lucky enough to meet some seriously timeless beauties!
I gathered up some of my favorite beauty products – including Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation , lovely colored lipsticks, Sally Hansen nail polishes, NYC eyeliners to name a few and headed out the door. I loved talking shop with the ladies, they shared my general enthusiasm for beauty and were eager to swap tips, tricks, and product recommendations! It was a pleasure learning from them as they shared some tips of their own with me – like what products they use to moisturize delicate skin and favorite sun protection lotions.
As part of the event some even had their nails painted while refreshments were served. It was a great time! I genuinely loved being able to show some of the ladies how to highlight their natural beauty – which is what makeup is about – not wearing a mask, but just flaunting what you’ve already got and feeling beautiful. I wanted them to feel pampered and beautiful.
At the end of the event swag bags were provided by The NYC Talon for everyone that had their makeup done (in The NYC Talon colors, of course). The ladies also got to take home the eyeliner and lipstick of their choice.
It was a lovely afternoon, and I want to thank NORC and the Sue Ginsburg Senior Center as well as all the lovely women at the event – I certainly hope that we’ll do it again!
