Hi! My name is Elizabeth Isbell, and I have been an Avon representative since February 2016. I want to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself and a little about Avon!
About me: I am a twenty-something grad student, and I’m studying Library and Information Sciences (yes, that’s a real thing). My goal is to become an elementary school librarian because I love working with kids. I’ve been selling Avon for almost a year, and I hope to build up my business even more to support my education. A couple of fast facts about me: my favorite color is blue, I have a dog named Remy, and I’m obsessed with lipstick.
About Avon: Avon is the company for women. The goal of the company is to empower women, which is something I really admire. Avon’s motto is “Beauty for a Purpose,” and the company truly lives out this motto every day; not only by helping representatives achieve their goals, but also through the Avon Foundation’s efforts to eradicate breast cancer AND domestic abuse. Check out the amazing work they’re doing! Avon started out as the perfume side business of a travelling book salesman, and this year the company celebrated the its 130th anniversary! Over a hundred years later, Avon is still empowering women to live their dreams. Most importantly, Avon is NOT just a makeup company! Check out my online store to find out what kinds of products Avon offers (hint: home decor, clothing, and more!).
Apart from all the AMAZING work Avon is doing, let me tell you a few reasons why I love being a representative. First of all, before I became a rep, I did not understand makeup at all. I could tell you what to do with eyeliner and mascara, and I could make my eye shadow look okay for special occasions, but I was totally lost on the finer points of makeup – such as matching foundation to my skin tone. I honestly wore a very light blush as “foundation” for longer than I’d like to admit. But now, as an Avon rep, I have the opportunity to order samples of products before I buy them. And thanks to Avon’s return policy, if I STILL choose the wrong shade of foundation, I can send it right back! Avon made me feel more free to experiment in order to find the right products, because I knew that I would either get it right, or learn from the process… And there was A LOT of learning to be done. But, as Drake so eloquently stated: “Started from the bottom, now we’re here.” I’m here, and I’m ready to share some tips with you! 🙂
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog, and I’ll leave you with my absolute favorite Avon quote: “Give a woman the right lipstick, and she can conquer the world.”
Keep living your own beautiful story.
