This is my first blog post on my new website. Since it is Throwback Thursday, it is only fitting that I go back to one of my original blog posts on my Avon e-store at: http://www.youravon.com/lpenoro

Avon Makeup Mavens, Part 1

Saturday, March 16, 2013

I should start at the beginning…Avon had a video contest for Representatives; create a video beauty tutorial (face, eyes, lips, nails), no longer than 4 minutes long, upload your finished video & then have your family and friends vote for your tutorial.  Grand Prize was 3 nights in NYC for 4 regional winners, 2 nights in NYC for 60 divisional winners, & a Makeup Maven Pin for 850 District winners.  My tutorial was “Fabulous Fall Nails”, thanks to the efforts of my Production Crew, Director of Photography-Michael Klein, Stylist/Makeup & Sound Assistant, Lynnette Penoro, Set Design & Lighting Assistant, Matthew Penoro. Yes, this was a family collaboration, & you can see my video on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WvN-BOHWHY  Filming took place on my birthday, & my video was uploaded on October 31, 2012 (my 1-year Avon anniversary) which was a little nerve-wracking, because we had lost power due to Superstorm Hurricane Sandy.  Well, they must have been my lucky days, because I was so excited & thrilled to be notified that not only was I the winner for my District #2282, but I was also the winner for Challenger Division, & now in the final selection for the Grand Prize.  I was 1 of 60 divisional winners from across the country & I had won the trip for 2 nights in NYC!! Check in soon to find out what happened next…
