Let’s beauty together

“I have to say that every time I tell someone about the Brave Beauty class I well up! It was one of the most inspirational mornings I have experienced. I’ve seen some of the women since that class and they are still raving about their experience…they loved being in the Sephora store and for a while they could take their mind off of their cancer. I am just in awe.”

“One of our clients who attended a Class for Confidence also participated in a hiring event at our office two weeks later. She shared with her Case Manager how she did her makeup just the way she was taught during the Sephora class. She felt confident and ready to participate in the job interviews, and was hired on the spot later that day by one of our employment partners! It appears that your Classes for Confidence had the exact impact we all hoped they would.”

“The clients who attended the class left VERY happy and were grateful to have the opportunity to learn with us. Many of the women said it was the first time they had felt beautiful in a long time. Our staff felt very empowered and touched by the impact. These classes re-affirm WHY we do what we do and that makeup can help make people feel great about themselves.”

“Thank you to all the ladies at Sephora! I commend these ladies for giving us this class. I'm a Marine Veteran and I greatly with all my heart appreciate all the ladies and your sincere approach to showing us tricks of the beauty trade.”
