Did you know that one in four women will be affected by domestic violence at one point in her life? To help stop the unfortunately prevalent cycle of violence, Mary Kay is proving that lipstick can transform lives with the 2011 Beauty That Counts™ initiative. As part of this endeavor, three brand-new Limited-Edition shades of Mary Kay® Beauty That Counts™ Creme Lipstick – named Give Joy, Give Dreams and Give Hope – will make a beautiful difference.

Available from September 16th, 2011 through December 15th, Mary Kay will donate $1 from each sale of Limited-Edition Beauty That Counts™ Mary Kay® Creme Lipsticks to The Mary Kay Foundation in its efforts to end domestic violence.

Makeup Tips Fit for a Princess‏


With a true “happily ever after” soon upon us, the world eagerly awaits what look a 21st century princess will don on her big day. If Kate Middleton’s classic poise is any indication of her fairytale wedding appearance, she is sure to look nothing short of picture perfect. Celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff gives her beauty predictions and tips for how the leading lady can enhance her flawless features for the grand event. A glamorous and classic look will be the perfect accessory for Kate’s subtle charm, because after all, a princess deserves to feel (and look!) like royalty.

· For her wedding ceremony, Ashunta recommends that Kate:
o Highlight her natural beauty with a look that glows from the outside in:
0 Mary Kay TimeWise Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation provides a radiant backdrop for her gorgeous look

o Play up her flawless bone structure by sculpting her cheekbones with the perfect bronzer. A hint of peach blush on the apples of her cheeks will create a slight contour to her oval face:
0 Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush provides a healthy and natural glow

o Dress her lips with a subtle and soft shade to emulate her timeless beauty:
0 Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Sweet Nectar adds light sheen and color to lips for a classic look

o Adorn eyes with neutral colors and accent with wispy lashes:
o Mary Kay Mineral Eye Colors in Cinnabar, Silky Caramel and Crystalline will emphasize her earth tone eyes
0 Finish off with Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara in Black to make eyes pop

· To celebrate wedded bliss, Ashunta recommends giving Kate’s look a burst of color for a more regal reception look:
o A bright lip is a fun way to spice things up:
0 Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Hibiscus provides a pop of magenta for a look fit for a princess
o A soft smokey eye could transform Kate’s look from demure to allure:
0 Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Iris could add a hint of plum to bring a little something into Kate’s ceremony eye look
