Take the thrill of the Womens World Cup (USA! USA!) and add it to the excitement of the Olympics, the Oscars, and your best night out with the girls, all synergized into one event. The result? The buzz, joy, high, beauty, glow and great fun that will be A Night For Green Beauty.
What is A Night for Green Beauty, you ask? (especially after such an intro!)
Put simply, it’s the top green beauty brands’ founders/formulators AND us green beauty devotees together under one roof. Or, as some refer to it, “The Green Beauty Party of the Year”. You know I love me a good party. The sole purpose isn’t necessarily shopping (although there will be plenty of that if you wish – good luck trying to walk out empty handed!). Rather, it’s the opportunity to meet the fantastically talented, uber intelligent, and forward-thinking women and men behind the green beauty brands. I have to tell you, it is really quite cool to meet the woman who formulates your eye cream. When was the last time Aerin Lauder talked to you in person about her brand’s eye cream and ingredients? Hmmmm….keep dreamin’.
The knowledge, passion, and warmth the green beauty community exudes is extraordinary. I can also guarantee you will share many laughs as you dabble in experiencing all their facial and body care, perfumes, oils, soaps, hair products, and makeup. You will be in sensory bliss. An added feel-good bonus: green beauty brands are known for paying it forward by supporting various social and environmental causes. This year, proceeds from the event will benefit Learning AFAR: No Barriers Youth, a non-profit foundation that realizes the difference ONE person can make in this world. Learning AFAR: No Barriers Youth provides “transformative journeys” for students, educators, wounded veterans, and adults with disabilities, empowering them to find their worth, purpose, and a “No Barriers” mindset. What a fantastic cause – please check out the website.
A little history: the event was founded by Karen King and Victoria Fantauzzi, the dynamic duo behind La Bella Figura. It has traveled from NYC, to LA, and now lands in Chi-town. The deets for this premiere green beauty experience and shopping event are as follows:
WHEN: Thursday August 6th, 6-10pm
