Girls who attended the event received a free makeover. They were also able to leave with arms full of freebies including free makeup bags containing up to $100 of free Mary Kay makeup.
24Seven Inc. reached out to a select number of Auburn University female students to serve as brand ambassadors for Mary Kay and Seventeen Magazine for the event. The brand ambassadors helped to have girls stop by the booth and receive free samples.
Many girls could enjoy taking a break between classes and have their makeup professionally done.
Carson McDavid and Ellie Inman were two of the many students who attended the Mary Kay event Oct. 2.
“My favorite part of the event was getting all of the free stuff,” Inman said. “I got a ton of makeup, and I cannot wait to try it out.”
Students had the opportunity to receive a free makeover from one of Mary Kay’s own makeup artists. They were able to test out Mary Kay face makeup, eye makeup as well as different lip colors.
“There were many different selections of colors to choose from that would match your skin tone perfectly,” McDavid said.
Girls in attendance were able to become on-camera supermodels for the day.
“After we got our makeovers they had a photo booth for us, and they had a lot of cool props that we could use.” Inman said. “Me and my friends took a lot of goofy photos using the props.”
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the Mary Kay foundation is taking charge and putting forth an effort to end domestic violence. Their “Don’t Look Away” campaign’s goal is to educate people on how to notice signs of an abusive relationship and knowing what to do to next.
Their “Text For Help” service gives girls the confidence to speak up.
The event had a free-standing wall put up in Auburn’s student center for girls to pledge their promise to text if they ever found themselves caught in what they think could be an abusive relationship.
Events such as Mary Kay’s “Fall Into Your Beauty” give students the opportunity to get more involved and meet important people.
“Overall it was a great event, and I cannot wait to participate in another one like it soon,” McDavid said.
