Support The Troops Hosted by Toni Ranos

New Year Fundraiser Support The TroopsMy good friend Toni Ranos put the word out that she was hosting a Support The Troops fundraiser. However, she was putting a new spin on this fundraiser. A group of us were invited to come and learn some simple easy techniques to give an awesome New Year look! Did she say “simple easy techniques?” Any woman on the go needs that information! She scheduled us in 30 minute time slots so we could get that personal one on one attention. Of course I had to take the first slot because I had a special three year old having a birthday party later that day.

After we finish playing in the make-up for a minimum donation of $10 we could get a head shot by Gary Ranos who just happens to be an awesome photographer. How could I not be game?

1.) I get to play in make-up.

2.) I get a professional head shot.

3.) I get to help support the troops

That’s a total win to me.

Toni had her place all decorated with New Year’s decorations. It was really very nice. Oh and does she have products! I tried all sorts of fun facial cleaners and moisturizers and primers for my skin. Then we played with all these fun colors to make my eyes all smokey and sexy! HELLO.

I got to use all these cool brushes and foundation that’s like bare minerals but without the three different powders. This was an all in one process. Which is good since I’m usually short on time. Rarely do I buy make-up any more. It’s handy to know a make-up consultant because you can always try the colors out to make sure it matches your skin tone. It was really a fun morning! If you are in the League City area you can contact Toni and I’m sure she can answer questions. The lower right is what I ended up looking like but it’s not my head shot. I still don’t have that yet but when I do I’ll be sure to show you what it looks like. The next time you get invited to play in make-up just go for it and have some fun! What do you think? Are you ready for a new you in the New Year?
