  • Bobbi Brown hosts a Masterclass for Smart Works volunteers

    Thank you to the fabulous Bobbi Brown make-up team who hosted a Make-Up Masterclass for our wonderful volunteers on Wednesday, proving once again that together we truly are #PrettyPowerful.

    Smart Works volunteers give so much time, energy, compassion and support to our clients every day of the week, and we are thrilled and eternally grateful that our fantastic partners Bobbi Brown so generously help us to say thank you in truly glamorous style. 

    Our volunteers absolutely loved the evening, with each attendee receiving an individual consultation with a super talented Bobbi Brown Make-up artist. As if that were not enough, each of our volunteers were treated to a beautiful Bobbi Brown goodie bag with some treats, an unexpected and greatly appreciated addition to a fantastic evening.

    We simply could not support the number of women we do back into employment and empower them to have a brighter future, without the inspirational friendship and support of the whole Bobbi Brown team. Together, you have helped us support more than 1,000 women within the first six months of this year.

    On behalf of all of us here at Smart Works, thank you.
