W Fort Lauderdale hosts the second annual Lipstick Lounge, an evening filled with cocktails, cosmetics, confections and fashions, designed to help kiss breast cancer goodbye. Founded by fun and fabulous breast cancer survivor, Tammy Gail, whose desire is to “pay it forward” and help other young women diagnosed with the disease, the Lipstick Lounge is celebrating its second year with a bigger, more outrageous and more over-the-top experiential night. Guests will preview designs from rising stars from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in a Project Runway-style presentation and enjoy fashions from designers including Mario Pucci Boca and Sole Sensations. The $35 admission fee will treat guests to two signature Xanté cocktails, bites from STEAK 954 and confections like “designer donuts” from Miami’s Mandarin Gourmet Donut Shoppe, truffles from Screw the Diet and cupcakes from Sweeter Days, which will be featured at the Sweet Spot. Bliss Spa will provide complimentary treatments and samples, local makeup artists will do makeovers and there will be cosmetic goodies to try including an eyelash bar. The Lipstick Lounge is part of the Glam-A-THON, which also includes the famous Glam Doll Strut where Florida’s most fabulous divas descend on the Himmarshee District in their glittery, feathery and pink, heels and attire for a 1K walk on October 16. All proceeds from the Glam-A-THON will benefit University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. For more information and tickets visit http://theglamathon.blogspot.com.
