Susan Posnick, makeup artist and founder of beauty and sun protection lines Susan Posnick Cosmetics and Brush On Block, received the international MyAid Award for her fight against cancer and for her commitment to healthy sun protection, made easy with her groundbreaking COLORFLO foundations and Brush On Block® mineral sunscreen. Posnick was honored at the Dancer Against Cancer ball at the Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna.
The nonprofit Dancer Against Cancer was founded in 2006 by Matthias Urrisk-Obertynski and Yvonne Rueff, whose sister lost her life to skin cancer at 33. Their annual ball is a highlight of the Vienna social calendar and is a spectacular night of dancing for the cause, all in support of the Austrian Cancer Aid organization. Previous MyAid Award honorees have included the actors Fran Drescher, Charles Shaughnessy, and Kelly LeBrock. For more information, see danceragainstcancer.com.
Susan Posnick’s vision is always to “make beauty simple,” bringing real-life beauty and sun protection together with her innovative makeup and passionate spirit. Posnick has a passion for sun protection that comes from a very personal place: she was diagnosed with skin cancer in 2000 and, with this diagnosis, recognized a need that went far beyond her. Her dedication to the cause shows in her attention to detail and quality, beginning with the development of her first innovative product, COLORFLO, which offers on-the-go, all-in-one, natural sun protection and healthy foundation coverage. That same dedication continues with each item in her line – products that are as beautiful as they are healthy. In 2012, Posnick developed Brush On Block to expand her reach of sun protection to men and children, as well as women. For more information, see susanposnick.com. and brushonblock.com
