With so many of our Mary Kay products (eye shadows, blushes, and so on) available in little individual plastic cases, our customers like to be able to put together their own color looks — and store them that way. They can also carry their colors with them in their purse or handbag — because we have refillable compacts just for that purpose!

Come check out the various ways you can store your cosmetics at home or on the go for a touch-up. Chris Hansen will have these compacts for you to see — as well as our Mary Kay brushes for you to be able to professionally apply your makeup, eye shadow, blush, etc.

What’s a “Travel Roll-Up?” Come to hear the answer!

I’ve been a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant for 16 1/2 years, and I’ve seen how our products have evolved (including how to store them) for the better over this period of time. Mary Kay is always in the forefront of new skin care products, color cosmetics, and so much more. I love being supported by a company who truly strives to be the best for its customers — a company that listens to its customers.

Pain from injuries, chronic pain syndromes, and wear and tear are something we all eventually experience. Most people are well-aware of conventional treatment options for pain, but there are many options out there that are just as effective and often times more effective than conventional means. I will be giving a brief overview of these alternative options.

We all carry many kinds of insurance to protect ourselves and our loved ones against harm. The greatest risk over time is the risk of aging, especially as we live longer. Paying for the cost of care can devastate families financially and also takes a huge toll on the caregivers. Long-term care insurance is the answer—it provides care of your body as you age, it helps to maintain independence in your home or provides care in a facility, it provides protection of your assets, and takes the stressful and demanding caregiving off of loved ones. Help yourself, your partner, and your loved ones and be prepared for your aging with Long-Term Care insurance.

One-on-one piano lessons are a great way to learn how to play the piano. The lesson is all about you and what you need in order to learn. This can be both exciting and challenging. Inevitably you learn more about yourself right alongside learning how to play. Over the years of teaching many students of all ages, I’ll share those intangible gifts students have walked away with long after their lessons are over.
