For the second year, Santana Row brings together pampering and primping for a good cause. Beauty Bash is an evening of fashion fun and beauty tips with makeup, hair and fashion experts, retailers and salons. It’s an evening celebrating style to raise funds for Career Closet, a non-profit organization based in Silicon Valley that gives disadvantaged women advice, confidence and appropriate work attire, much of it donated to the clothing boutiques it operates in San Jose and Foster City.

The public is invited to shop, nibble and enjoy cocktails while talking to style experts and fashion bloggers who will be stationed at more than a dozen stops.  Guests can try the latest hair and make-up trends from professionals and receive personalized consultations from the experts, a mini-magazine of tips from them and a gift bag. Are you dreaming of becoming a fashion model and/or be on the cover of a magazine? Well here’s your chance ~ GEV Magazine in partnership with The Candy Factory Studio will also be setting up a makeshift mini glam studio in the middle of Santana Row Park so make sure to stop by to strike a pose! We’ll publish the best foodie-fashion-forward shoppers in our May issue. And since selfies are the hottest thing on social media right now, post your photos from that evening and tag them with #lifeontherow #beautybash and you’ll win a special gift from us as well.
Tickets are $20, or $15 with the donation of a gently used accessory (jewelry, bags, scarves) and available at Guests receive a “passport” for in-store events, a wine glass (wine will be poured in the stores) and a swag bag of goodies.
