MEREDITH BEAUTY CENTER OF EXCELLENCE EDITORS TO SUPPORT
LOOK GOOD FEEL BETTER BEAUTY EDITORS DAY® AT SAKS FIFTH AVENUE
New York, NY, August 9, 2012— Meredith Corporation, the nation’s leading media and marketing company for women, will be providing top beauty editors from many of its well-known brands including More, Ladies’ Home Journal, Fitness, Every Day with Rachael Ray, and Better Homes and Gardens, for the first annual Look Good Feel Better Beauty Editors Day at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City on August 16th.
Leading beauty editors from Meredith along with beauty editors from across the magazine industry will provide consumers the opportunity to visit with their favorite beauty editor at the counter of a leading beauty brand for a 20-minute one-on-one consultation, in exchange for a $30 donation to the Look Good Feel Better program. The consultations will cover a range of topics: from current trends in skincare, fashion and makeup, to inspiration and insider secrets, to specific beauty advice and product demonstrations. Each beauty brand will provide participants with a mini-makeover and an exclusive gift.
The Look Good Feel Better program offers free workshops and support to people with cancer to provide lessons on cosmetics, skin and nail care, wigs, turbans, accessories and wardrobe styling to help mitigate the appearance-related side effects of their treatment. Since the program began 23 years ago, it has served more than 800,000 people with cancer in the U.S. and more than 1.2 million people with cancer around the world.
