The candidates recently received make-up tips at the Lips, Chips and Tips gathering. Jenny Helmer of Mary Kay donated her time and products to help the girls with their make-up. Also during the evening, Cassandra Kreig and Ashton Gusa gave the girls some valuable tips on the upcoming competition while the committee helped guide them with advice and expectations.
