We're fawning over rich berry shades for our fall beauty roundup! Add these picks to your beauty bag today.

Do you feel it? Just a hint of Fall crispness at night. I am super excited about this time of the year because of the explosion of deep rich colors, especially on the makeup scene. So what’s hot for fall beauty? Deep, rich berry hues in wine, burgundy and raspberry are the fabulous choices for this season. These colors irresistibly attract the eye and are fun, glamorous, rich and luxurious.

Channel your inner vamp in the deepest shades and rock a little rock star edge with cat-eyes and dark pouty lips. For a glamorous look, go with smoky eyes and semi-bold lips or simplify your go-to look with a beautiful lip gloss. The options are endless and these luxe colors complement fall wardrobe tones. Here are some of my favorite products in fall’s rich berry palette. Add them to your beauty bag today!

We’re back with another inspiring Goodwill® Success Story! Let’s take a look at Shantrese and her uplifting story about how the Goodwill helped her overcome a past filled with obstacles and tragedy…

Shantrese grew up with a learning disability and ADD, and lost her brother in a tragic shooting. Needless to say, these hardships would continue to affect Shantrese for the rest of her life. She initially found it difficult to create meaningful relationships and find the right path. She sought out help from Goodwill’s Work Services, where she was able to participate in job training and classroom instruction, while also strengthening her social skills. Unfortunately, Shantrese faced more loss and adversity with the passing of her mother and best friend, but with the help of Goodwill’s Supported Employment Program and the Wisconsin Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, she was finally able to find a career that fit her goals. She now excels as a staff member at Planet Fitness. The franchise has seen how hard Shantrese works, which resulted in Planet Fitness forming a partnership with Goodwill to hire more Goodwill Supported Employment candidates!Shantrese Goodwill Success Story copyDon’t forget to bring in your gently used clothing, shoes, and home goods to your nearest Bon-Ton store in exchange for up to 25% off Goodwill Sale coupons!
