This is far from the humble beginnings of the brand that started in a 500 square foot store front in Dallas, Texas, USA, with five beauty products displayed on a single metal shelf and nine Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants.

Now, Mary Kay Inc. has more than 200 products that are sold in 37 countries around the world by 3 million Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants.

To celebrate in the United States, Mary Kay is holding the largest pink Cadillac rally and caravan in company history. More than 100 pink Cadillacs will blanket the Dallas Arts District in front of the AT&T Performing Arts Center before caravanning up the Dallas North Tollway via police escort to the Mary Kay global headquarters. Once there, the pink Cadillacs will spell out a commemorative message in tribute to the company's golden anniversary.
