One thing we're excited about with our elite selection of niche vendors participating in The Pink Event 2012 is that they're not all the same—or even selling products or services. This is the case with the Prince George's County Department of Social Services, Foster Care and Adoption. The agency instead is hoping to bring some much-needed attention to the county's need for foster and adoptive parents.  

We sat down with agency representative Lisa Robertson to talk about what Prince George’s County hopes to achieve with Pink Event attendees:

Tiffany Moody Brings Makeovers to The Pink Event™ 2012

Makeup artist Tiffany Moody loves helping women look their best—and she’ll help ladies understand how to achieve this during a mini-inspirational session at The Pink Event (March 3), a one-day, women-focused expo held at the Holiday Inn in Laurel, Md.  

Moody—a makeup artist for The Pearl Spa in Fulton, Md.—is one of six local experts speaking at The Pink Event’s full line-up of women-focused sessions, covering topics from image makeovers to understanding domestic violence.  

One makeup myth Moody says she’s ready to challenge is the rule that certain skin tones have limited color palettes. “I think a lot of women are afraid of colors. But that’s mainly because they don’t know how to apply their makeup tools,” says Moody, who applies makeup to celebrity clients like Radio One owner Cathy Hughes.
