The Beauty Bus Foundation and nail-care company OPI are throwing a
fundraising bash 11:30 a.m. April 25 at The Mark for Events (9320 West
Pico Blvd.) in Los Angeles. The Beauty Drive will feature beauty
treatments, a hair show and auction and will benefit the foundation, a
non-profit that provides free in-home beauty and grooming services to
home-bound, chronically or terminally ill people and their primary
caregivers. The Los Angeles-based foundation works with volunteer
make-up artists and hairstylists to provide services to clients with
cancer, Lou Gehrig’s disease, muscular dystrophy and more. For more
information about the event, or how to volunteer with the organization,
go to www.beautybus.org.
London-based make-up artist Angela Holthuis and photographer Izabela Habur set a challenge for themselves: Habur
asked Holthuis, a fashion pro, to create “a small story with bold looks
within a small time frame, to test out how far we [could] push
ourselves creatively,” Holthuis said.
Make-Up Artist magazine is now accepting student competition
applications for the 2009 Los Angeles International Make-Up Artist
Trade Show. The themes for this year are Gothic and X-Men Mutants. The competition is open to students of a recognized make-up school and
to those who graduated 12 months prior to the competition. Make-Up Artist will only accept competition entries postmarked by May 22, 2009.
If you like Prescriptives products, you’d better stock up while you
can: On Sept. 17, Estée Lauder Companies announced it will stop
production and global wholesale distribution of the brand by Jan. 31,
2010. The brand will still be sold online at www.prescriptives.com
while inventory lasts.
