I think it is a good idea for the girls. While i don't know exactly how the business works, I presume that Mary Kay consultants work on commission. To have a party for a group of girls that cannot afford the product might not be a great opportunity for the consultant. Maybe if you budget one item per girl into the cost of the party?

I think that is a great idea. Maybe a small gift set of Mary Kay for the girls would be nice. Something small, but useful for them. Or some samples of colors they picked or liked.

For the photo shoot I would do simple. I know my 13 yr old and her friends like to do their own photo shoots with each other.....nothing professional. ..just the girls taking each other's pictures.

Any time one wants to tastefully teach young ladies how to apply make up, I'm all for it! Actually, it's a great idea for that age group. Perhaps, instead of party favours, you allow each girl to purchase an item (provided her parents aren't against makeup)

I am not sure about the photoshoot part of it, but my Aunt had a consultant meet with my cousin and I for one of our birthdays at 15. She taught us to tastefully apply makeup.
She then let us buy a couple of items for ourselves, her treat. It might be hard for many of the girls to afford any of the Mary Kay products, so I am not sure how well that would work.
I know I enjoyed meeting the consultant though and picking out makeup! :)

Thankyou everyone , and yes the Mary Kay consultant did suggest I could offer each person a gift of 15.00 for two items each, but I think that is a lot of money. Maybe one gift for 6.00 would be better. She did say though tgere is no obligation to buy ☺️? I also asked Bodyshop thry do work on comition so they would charge 15 pp for a gift each before they come out.

Thank you trisha, I appreciate what you are saying and I'll beat that in mind before I decide.
