Authentic Beauty performed makeup & hair services for breast cancer survivors

Authentic Beauty is passionate about giving back to the community and our artists performed makeup and hair services at the Pink Ribbons Luncheon and Fashion Show in Atlanta,  a one-of-a-kind event on October 5th, benefitting The Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition and The Eric R. Beverly Family Foundation.

Rosie Gillespie, Dhyana Forte, Lilia Cruz, Sarah Powell, Stephanie Simmons, Lisa Horn and Julia Thaiese were on hand to provide professional makeup applications and hair services for 10 breast cancer survivors and the chair of the event at this inspiring fashion show and luncheon honoring survivors.


And it was an extremely inspiring experience for the Authentic Beauty team to be able to take care of these strong, amazing women and watch them proudly walk out on that stage feeling as gorgeous as they looked.


“For those women and girls who are facing the harsh realities of chemotherapy and radiation, looking better can be an important part of healing,” said Alyson Howard-Hoag, CEO and founder of Authentic Beauty.


“Our company prides itself on partnering with nonprofit organizations in need of the transformational benefits of makeup, including Pink Ribbons, CURE Childhood Cancer, Bert’s Big Adventure, and V-Day to name a few.” .
