We were so inspired when we heard the story of 17-year old cancer survivor Cristy Lara of El Paso, Texas. When reporter Vianey Arana reached out to us and told us about Cristy and her brave battle against cancer, I knew we wanted to get involved.
I spent over 10 years working for the American Cancer Society, so this is a cause that is very dear to my heart. When Vianey explained how much Cristy loves makeup and YouTube beauty gurus (pretty much like most girls her age), I knew we wanted to help this strong young woman feel as glamorous and beautiful as possible.
Thrive Cosmetics – also a #girlboss company – also stepped in and I’m super impressed her mission. She created her company after one of her dear friends _______.
The makeup artist onset did a really masterful job bringing out Cristy’s glow. Like Cristy says herself, she was already beautiful and his artistry just took it to the next level.
