Help These Women Give Thousands of Dollars to Charity

Here at LHJ we’re always in search of women inspiring women. It’s our goal (and sheer delight) to help tell stories of women who are giving back and impacting the world in a positive way. When one of our favorite beauty companies, L’Oreal Paris, reached out to share their Women of Worth program with us we just knew we had to tell you about it. L’Oreal shares our admiration of strong, proactive, intelligent women and every year they celebrate women “who have made a difference through volunteer work in their communities.”

This year’s honorees were all nominated for their incredible work and each woman will receive a $10,000 donation to the charitable cause she holds most dear. But (and here’s where you come in) L’Oreal needs your help to choose one National Woman Of Worth from amongst this year’s honorees to receive an extra $25,000 donation to her cause. Get to know the ladies and their causes below, then go vote in one of three ways:

·       Visit  WomenofWorth.com to cast your vote.

·       Head to the  L’Oréal Paris’ Facebook and “Like” the post and photo about your favorite Woman of Worth.

·       Check out their Twitter feed and re-tweet the tweet about the Woman of Worth you support.

Three Ways To Spring-ify Your Makeup

ss_101152069LastWednesday, Punxsutawney Phil officially reported that spring is on its way! Whether you believe that a groundhog can actually predict a change in the temperature or not, this year’s guess certainly gives us hope that flowers will soon be in bloom. With winter on its way out, it’s fun to start thinking about lightening up your makeup routine with softer colors and sheerer textures.

When it’s cold and snowy, we tend to shy away from bright pink lipcolor. As spring approaches don’t be afraid to push aside that matte lipstick and opt for a pinky gloss instead. I’m obsessed with Lancôme Juicy Tubes Ultra Shiny Lipgloss in Spring Fling, $18. It’s one of those glosses that’s appropriate for all occasions.

Metallics are also very on-trend this spring, but can easily veer into 70’s disco territory when overdone. Keep your look sophisticated with a light wash of color on your lids. Dot L’Oreal Paris HIP Metallic Duo in Gilded, $8, at the inner corners of your eyes for a subtle highlight.

Purple eye shadow is always spring-friendly and easy to wear. Blend a plummy shade with a neutral champagne to ease into the color. Maybelline New York’s ExpertWear Eyeshadow Quad in Lavender Smokes, $6.25, has four pretty shades.
