Bobbi Brown raises £500,000 for Smart Works   

Bobbi Brown is an amazing supporter of Smart Works, like us they believe that when a woman feels confident she can achieve anything, including being successful at a job interview.

They have long supported our work through their annual Pretty Powerful campaign, plus monthly Artist in Residence days where Bobbi Brown PRO Artists come into our centres to give clients makeup tips and advice on how to create their interview and work makeup style. Every moment they’ve spent with our clients and every penny they’ve raised has helped to transform lives.

This year, the partnership hit a special milestone with half a million pounds raised through Pretty Powerful product sales and generous donations from customers.

Our Chair and Co-founder, Juliet Hughes-Hallet said:

“Bobbi Brown is the absolute example of what a corporate partnership with a charity can be. They have believed in the Smart Works mission to help women into employment and put themselves firmly, year on year, behind us and our cause. One day a month, across our eight centres in the UK, Bobbi Brown makeup artists will be there treating our clients to a makeup lesson. We all look forward to the visits and seeing our ladies grow in confidence before our eyes – and then go on to get the job.

Bobbi Brown also supports us through limited edition Pretty Powerful products, different and more fabulous every year. This year the total amount raised by Bobbi Brown for Smart Works has hit half a million pounds. That money has enabled hundreds of our clients to change the trajectory of their difficult lives by gaining employment. 

To all at Bobbi Brown, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Even with the current restrictions the team at Bobbi Brown has not stopped looking for ways to support our clients; in the last three months, they’ve hosted numerous virtual events for clients past and present.

It is this passion for what we do that makes our partnership with Bobbi Brown so special, they have enabled us to help many women over the last seven years.
