BeautyInk and All About Girlfriends Gala™

This year’s All About Girlfriends™ gala, hosted by the Minerva Foundation, is being supported in part by the BeautyInk Gallery. The Minerva Foundation helps BC Women reach their full potential and become leaders in the community by providing leadership development programs and grants for education, causes that the BeautyInk Gallery loves to encourage! The Gallery is therefore donating a Makeup Party package to be auctioned at the gala in support of its programs.

The lucky winner of a BeautyInk Gallery Makeup Party will be able to invite her friends to the gallery to receive some fun makeup education and consultations with Shauna Magrath herself. The information Shauna imparts includes:

-What cosmetics to splurge on

-Beauty industry myths

-How to select makeup and brush and uses

An each attendee receives her own one-on-one makeup consultation with Shauna.

Be sure to attend the All About Girlfriends™ gala to ensure your chance to win this prize, or simply book your own makeup party by contacting us at info@beautyink.ca!

The Grinch, Santa and BeautyInk = Christmas Cheer

In December, 2009 Shauna volunteered two days of her time in a unique way to Vancouver-based organization Loving Spoonful. The volunteer-driven organization delivers free nutritious meals to those living with HIV/AIDS in the greater Vancouver area. Shauna contributed her amazing talents to this organization by transforming performing artist Johnny MacRae into a living incarnation of the Grinch for their donation drive! She spent six hours preparing the Grinch silicone prosthetic and a further four hours each day for two days applying, sculpting and painting Johnny into the famous Dr. Seuss character. She then accompanied Mr. Grinch as her and other volunteers canvassed door-to-door in the West End and Commercial Drive areas, thoroughly surprising local residents! The funds that they raised went towards supporting the causes of this great organization.

Shauna also transformed a young Scottish man into a pink-cheeked, be-speckled Santa Claus for the annual We Care event providing underprivileged children with a Christmas and gift-making  party at the Frog Hollow Community Centre. What a treat for the young kids as they got to meet the most realistic and jolly Old Saint Nic they ever set eyes on! It was the third year Shauna provided her special makeup effects talents to this event and it continues to draw the support of many top companies in our community such as BC Hydro, Capers, Panago Pizza, Opus Art Supplies and McDonald’s.

BeautyInk also donated over $600 worth of beauty products to the Beauty Nights organization for the stockings it would give to women of the downtown Eastside.

A great generator of Christmas cheer, BeautyInk loves to support worthy causes like the ones above!
