MIAMI, April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- JOON, a natural skin care line for tween girls, and Stardoll, the largest online community for girls who love fashion and beauty, have joined forces to search for the next Natural Beauty Star. Searching for an ambassador to represent all JOON girls out there, JOON has tapped into the largest community of tween girls to spread the important, positive message of natural beauty among these young girls. JOON's goal is to encourage and motivate girls to feel empowered, strong, smart and confident in the choices they make when it comes to their skin.
"We selected Stardoll as our marketing partner because of the relationship that girls have developed with the Stardoll brand and the incredible community that Stardoll has developed," says Tameka Linnell, co-founder of JOON. "It is a safe platform for girls to interact with fashion and beauty. We believe strongly that a cross-platform approach is essential in engaging girls with our message about natural beauty. It is the ideal environment to place the JOON brand message in the hands and voices of girls."
In order to be considered for the JOON Natural Beauty Star, girls must tell JOON what being a Natural Beauty means to them. "In this day and age of reality TV, Facebook and all of the other external pressures placed on girls to be perfect, we want to empower girls to broaden the definition of beauty and define it on their terms," says Tameka. "We're very excited to hear what girls across the country have to say. Their voices inspire us to do what we do."
The chosen JOON Natural Beauty Star will experience a natural beauty adventure with a professional photo shoot and a behind the scenes video shoot in the very glamorous New York City. The lucky girl will be able to bring along a friend to join her on this adventure. The winner and her friends will have a dazzling day, complete with a wardrobe stylist, hair and make-up artist, an on location photo shoot and a limo ride around the city.
In order to enter, girls and their parents must log on to http://JOONGirl.com/stardoll-shop and purchase a specially priced JOON Natural Beauty Star package. Upon purchase, they will receive a Stardoll virtual gift and the link to the JOON Natural Beauty Star registration page.
The contest is running now through June 22nd.
