Working with an Independent Mary Kay Beauty Consultant like Stephanie Walden can save time and get the best quality products at a fraction of the cost for those trying to find the right beauty and skin care regime. But she doesn't expect anyone to take her word for it.
"Test before you invest and try before you buy," Walden often says to her potential customers. "I would hate to think that any of our wonderful product would end up in a woman's graveyard of unused cosmetics lying around in her drawers for years. If you aren't 100 percent satisfied with your Mary Kay Products, let me know, and I'll happily refund you, no questions asked."
Rarely does that happen because everyone gets to try the product first, according to Walden. "Most everyone loves our products; they're so rich and light. We're just as good as a fine department store, but the difference is it's affordable, and you have a personal consultant that knows your name, skin type, and facial habits. Mary Kay offers fine department store-quality products at a price affordable to everyone. I have products for all genders and age brackets, from preteen to seniors, male or female, including those who are in transition. I help everyone!"
With Mary Kay, there is also the added bonus of having a personal beauty consultant.
"The benefit of having a personal beauty consultant is building that one-on-one face-to-face relationship where I know your likes and dislikes. I can help you avoid the department store hodgepodge where someone will sell you something that doesn't actually suit you and will end up in your makeup graveyard in your vanity. Everything is face to face and customized. On top of that, we are professionally trained at what we do."
Walden offers consultations out her newly renovated home store in Grayson. She strives to give clients the royal treatment as they test various products from her trove of facial care products, masks, lotions, and potions. Clients interested in Mary Kay's skincare line or glamor line of eyeshadow pallets and lip sets and more can receive a full-face makeover.
"My Mary Kay life is really about taking a stand to support women, first and foremost. A lot of people think we're just about the glitz and the glamor, but we're really more than that."
Established in 1963, the Mary Kay corporation seeks to empower women and families around the world, and for Stephanie Walden, that boils down to relationship-building.
"It's more than skincare and glamor. Investing in a Mary Kay consultant is supporting a small business. I give back to my community by making donations to senior care centers, and we raise money for breast cancer. We also adopt a grandparent at Christmas time. We are always looking to build new relationships and give back to the community."
Walden invites Gwinnett locals and those in neighboring counties to enter to win a free workshop for four or more by texting the word "FREEGC" to her cell: (770)235-6036.
"Come over, and we'll play with the products. Bring your girlfriends, and we'll have a party!" Walden said.
