I brought all my senior project paperwork as well as an outline of what I wanted to do. Cindy (facilitator) came prepared with Mary K brochures and helpful ideas as to what my final outcome should be. We decided that skin care would be the area we worked in for this project. Our plan is to get three volunteers and supply them with three different types of facial cleansing products. Each will be given the responsibility of recording a photo of their progress every week and I will take the before and after final pictures. Then they will receive a Mary Kay makeover to show their progress.

Commentary: Cindy (facilitator) thought it would be good for me to partake in "Glamour Night" just to get a feel for what I would be saying to my volunteers and she allowed me to bring two friends along with me. At this event she spent a little extra time going over each step to giving a makeover so that I could learn the process. After going through with the whole night and receiving make overs for both myself and my friends, I sat down with Cindy to discuss our next meeting and to ask any questions I had.

Commentary: My mom and I searched for three ladies, all of different ages, to be my volunteers for this project. We found two women that were more than happy to help out and, because we were short another woman, my mom decided to help me out and be the third volunteer. We then called Cindy (facilitator) and spoke to her about how to order my first Mary Kay kit as a new consultant. After ordering the kit we went out and bought supplies to give to the volunteers so that they were provided with everything they would need.

Each volunteer had a different product so each instructions were different. I then took a "before" shot of each volunteer. We left the two women with a journal to record daily what kind of environment they were in and what foods they might have eaten that day because all this depends on what kind of skin you have. We also left a camera so that they could record weekly their progress. We left this up to them because they live too far away for us to drive there every week so instead we decided to make monthly visits.2/05/12 Activity: I was surprised to see Met with volunteers again as our the progress that3:00PM monthly visit to check up on their these products had(1 hr) progress and to get another picture of made on their faces. them. Commentary: When we got there, I took another progress photo of each volunteer and downloaded all the pictures they had taken weekly and put them on my computer so I could get started on my presentation.

Commentary: Because of their tight schedule with work we had to rush the process of the makeover so I was not able to take as much time as I would have liked, but we still got it done and in the end the volunteers looked great. One problem we ran into today was Caitlin (volunteer) had a break out from the Mary Kay mask that she used the nightbefore. Of course these kinds of things are uncontrollable but we still managed to make her look good!
