Why You Should Get Your Brows Waxed This May

Do you ever feel guilty for your beauty buys and splurges? Well, I have some fab news for you! This month, Benefit Cosmetics is donating EVERY SINGLE PESO they earn from their brow services to Mano Amiga Academy.

Mano Amiga Academy is a school that aims to provide a good education to children from low-income families.

What I found interesting about Mano Amiga was that the organization also aims to help their student’s mothers find stable jobs, so that they can perform better at school. It makes sense, right? The more secure the students feel at home, the better they can perform at school.

So what are you waiting for? Head on over to the nearest Benefit Brow Bar to shape your arches!

(Okay, beauty geek alert for this one!) Anyway, they’re giving away a portion of their November and December 2013 sales to The Philippine Red Cross, too! Plus, VMV employees opted to donate the budget for their holiday celebrations to those affected by Yolanda. In case you didn’t know, we Pinoys love our Christmas parties, so this is a big deal. Kudos, VMV!

Nail&Co, Renegade Folk, and Shoebox Love are doing awesome things, too! Click to find out more. Continue reading
