Celebrity Makeup Artist Jackie Gomez with our editor and interns at the Connelly Center

Makeup artist to the stars Jackie Gomez held a two-hour beauty workshop on Saturday to benefit the Cornelia Connelly Center, an all-girl middle school in the Lower East Side. Beauty enthusiasts, bloggers and graduates of the school gathered to raise money for the Center while learning how to apply makeup for work.

Gift bags were sponsored by Olay, Pantene and CoverGirl while the sparkling wine was donated by September Wines.

All proceeds went to the Connelly Center which gives students from low-income families access to high school and college. To learn more about the school, visit
