Lynn Derksen

Senior Advisor Of The Board Of Directors/ Lead Model Makeup & Fashion Consultant /Sponsor & Vendor 

Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics since 2001 after 22 years of administrative employment at Vanguard University of Southern California, I knew I wanted to focus more on empowering and encouraging women.  While I do not consider myself the “sales type” I concluded that Mary Kay Cosmetics had a solid reputation and business plan and was worth the try.  I worked to build my business alongside of my job at Vanguard for about a year and half, then “retired” to work full time teaching skin care and glamour techniques, and mentoring others to become master consultants.
Over the years I have become increasingly passionate about helping to build confidence and self-esteem in women of all ages, because it affects their vocations, relationships and other endeavors in life!

Elora Herring

Model Makeup Artist Sponsor/ Vendor/ Board Member

"Being young should never stop you from making a difference." This is something I have learned to believe in. I have always been a little mature for my age and it is something I'm proud of. I focus my life in doing what I love and using to help others. I am a certified makeup artist, model, and a lipsense/senegence sells consultant. I use my skills to help anyone  feel as beautiful as they truly are. Makeup is not made to cover up ones flaws but to bring out the confidence we all have inside. From boots and mud to glitter and heels we all deserve to feel beautiful. Even if you are somewhere in between, just like me.
