Charity Makeup Auctions from A Girl’s Gotta Spa: Buy Cosmetics and Help a Little Girl!

Meadow Quinn has a disease that required use of a feeding tube since she was 18 months old. Now that she is older (seven), she needs to attend a feeding clinic in order to learn to eat normally. This requires a 4 week stay, costs $ 42,000, and is not covered by insurance! For more, read the full story at A Girl’s Gotta Spa.

This is where you come in. Shannon at A Girl’s Gotta Spa is running auctions full of great cosmetic items to raise money for Meadow’s treatment. The first one is already up and running here, and there will be more. See the above links for details.

Q & A With Chase Aston, International Makeup Artist for The Body Shop

pd_watermelon_born_lippy_balmThe body shop is running a great charitable promotion: Get Lippy, Prevent HIV. Right now, the proceeds from every limited edition Guarana Berry Lip Butter sold goes directly to the Staying Alive Foundation (, funding HIV awareness and prevention for young people around the world.

Oh, and the Body Shops’ Watermelon Lippy (pictured) is one of the most heavenly pot lip butters around!

I really love Body Shop products and so I was quite happy when recently members of the Beauty Blog Network had the opportunity to ask questions of Chase Aston, International Makeup Artist for the Body Shop.

I asked Mr. Aston: What hot new lip colors should we be on the lookout for this Spring?

His answer:

Lips are awash with gloss again this season in the prettiest, pearlized shades. The Body Shop Lip Bloom is a brilliant high gloss and high pearl trend shades in a formulation and two up-to-the-minute shades (Tulip Peach – a soft pink gloss with a hint of golden peach; Soft Rose – a light, pretty and delicate pink gloss)

If you are unfamiliar with Viva Glam, it is M.A.C. Cosmetic’s way of giving back, with limited edition lip colors that send the proceeds to the M.A.C. Aids Fund.

The addition of Fergie brings in a new shade of Viva Glam lipglass that is a nice berry/mauve shade.  For lipgloss that gives back, go pick up a tube!
