Local firm to provide products for MTV awards show

A Columbus cosmetics company has announced it will be providing products for the gift bags to be given to stars at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards.

Dawn Andrews, President and CEO of garb2ART Cosmetics, says she began the company in early 2013. Andrews says the company is based on clean cosmetics and recycling. She says that garb2ART has kept over seven tons of material out of U.S. landfills since the company launched.

This year’s MTV Movie Awards Ceremony will be live on April 10. Andrews says that she will be attending a private party with celebrities and national media in Beverly Hills prior to the event. She says that she’ll be taking another local person with her to showcase her products, and the city she calls home.
