Press Release: Reveal NYC to #CelebrateBeauty and Uplift Women Survivors of Domestic Violence at 9th Annual Makeover Event

New York, N.Y., March 12, 2015 – Reveal NYC will celebrate beauty and uplift women who have suffered from domestic violence by collaborating with beauty and fashion professionals and corporations for its 9th annual makeover event on March 14. Throughout the day, women from five NYC-based safe houses and shelters will participate in makeover sessions and glamour shots. This year, Reveal NYC will be serving 55 women during the makeover event. About 125 volunteers from all ends of the career spectrum will be serving these women throughout the day. During the event, the women will be pampered, receiving fashion advice by professional stylists, hair and makeup artists. Through partner contributions, they will also receive designer clothing, jewelry and beauty products from organizations, including Maybelline New York, Garnier Fructis, BCBG Max Azria Group, Inc. and Mary Kay. Following their makeovers, the women will participate in a photo shoot.

“Every year, it has been inspiring to see these survivors transform from the inside out from the time they walk through the door to leaving at the end of the day,” said Lana Stevens, president of Reveal NYC. “We hope that by honoring the beauty and dignity of the women, we can help equip them with confidence - and most importantly, love.”

In order to protect the confidentiality of each participant, the event will be closed to the general public.

In addition to the annual Makeover Event, Reveal NYC hosts monthly workshops focused on educating women in shelters on personal health, exercise, job interview presentation and relationship communication.

Reveal NYC is excited to be partnering with global brands Maybelline New York, Garnier Fructis, BCBG Max Azria Group, Inc., Mary Kay and Maiyet, as well as local New York business such as Manhattan Mini Storage, Irving Farm and Taylor’s Closet, among many other generous supporters.
