Nofar Avigdor Is The Refinery29/SmashBox It Girl!

After countless entries were whittled down to just 10 crowd favorites, our expert judges have finally named Nofar Avigdor the Refinery29/Smashbox It Girl! The Jerusalem-born, NYC-bred beauty will be whisked away to L.A., where she’ll receive a makeover by Pro Lead Artist Lori Taylor and star in one of Smashbox’s award-winning videos. Jealous yet? Avigdor wont be leaving empty-handed—she’ll get a chance to raid the Smashbox beauty closet for up to $500 worth of products. “I always wanted to be a role-model to young ladies and for those who ever doubted themselves,” the tomboy-turned-It Girl says. “There is nothing better than to experience the happiness of accomplishment and share it with the world.” Avigdor—a student, model, and busy career-girl working in sales (phew!)—is more than just a pretty face; the 22-year-old speaks Hebrew, English, Spanish, and is now studying Chinese. “Coming from Israel, where [you often feel] in danger for your life and the ones you love, I never gave up on believing and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel,” Avigdor says. For this doe-eyed brunette, the chance to be a Smashbox It Girl is a “dream come true.” Congrats, girl!
