One simple step to make a good first impression online is to have a professional headshot that makes you look good and feel confident!  On Sunday, July 13, 2014, several women including Colleen G McCauley from Earth to Business Marketing took the opportunity to get a new photograph and be pampered as contestants of the Face of Pink Ink (FOPI) contest.

Face of Pink Ink FlyerFor a limited time, the FOPI contest team treated women of ages 16 to 99 years to make-up by Pink Ink, hairdo by Wright Hair & Co., outfit from Jockey Person to Person, and mini-photoshoot with Angelic Images Photography. Contestants also received a bag full of goodies and a digital Facebook photo from Angelic Images Photography.

After August 24, 2014, the FOPI team selected and posted the two best images (headshot and full body) for each contestant to Facebook albums by age category (16–33 Yrs, 34-45 Yrs, and 46+ Yrs), and their definition of beauty. Albums will be located on the Facebook pages of The Face of Pink InkPink Ink, 100Things2Do, WIBusiness, 3 Ring Video, Park Lane Jewellery with Tammy, Jockey P2P with CarolynJockey P2P with Mary-AnnAngelic Images Photography and Wright Hair & Co for voting starting August 30, 2014 and ending on September 12, 2014.  This means YOU have up to TEN votes per contestant by visiting all 10 Facebook pages!

One winner from each age category is chosen by the final judging panel on Sunday, September 14, 2014 to become a Pink Ink spokeswoman in 2014-2015.

Beauty is one’s experience of another person’s character and intentions. Natural beauty is one’s interpretation of physical attractiveness of any being or object. As beauty is subjective to the one’s personal perception i.e. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I believe beauty is specific to my own experience of what I look at and how it makes me feel. ~ Colleen

On October 17th at the Ladies Night Out – Red Carpet Affair, all three winners will be presented as Pink Ink’s 2014-2015 spokesmodels. This semi-formal/formal charitable fundraiser will support Single Women in Motherhood (SWIM) and give women a night to remember.  For more details, go to http://london.themompreneur.com/ladies-night-out-in-support-of-s-w-i-m/.
