3 Shopping Trends Happening Right Now


cropped-cropped-brebeauty-makeup-header-139.jpgWe all have that one cool friend who always has the most fashionable clothes, knows the hot new restaurant, and generally just has a sixth sense for the next big thing. At Avon, that person would be Michael Sengstack. As Avon’s director of marketing for fashion and home, Sengstack has his finger on the pulse of what’s new and what’s next. Good thing, too, because that’s actually his job! “My job is to understand what’s happening in the industry and with customers, and then to take that information and help inspire the products we have here at Avon,” he says.

To stay current, Sengstack stays on top of pop culture, visits museums, and engages in constant people-watching. “One of my favorite activities is waking up at 4 a.m. on Black Friday,” he says. “In 15 years, I have not purchased a single thing for myself. Instead, I just watch people shop.”

He also brings his expertise to education, teaching a class on trend-spotting at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, as well as educating Avon Representatives during his bi-weekly YouTube show, Campaign Central. And now, he’s here to lay some knowledge on us! Read on as he shares the three biggest trends happening in the shopping world right now.


TREND #1: Getting Personal

“Right now, consumers have a need to personalize and be more individual and self-expressive, like when people buy bracelets with sayings on them,” says Sengstack. “We share so much of who we are on social media, so people want something that feels authentic to who they are and doesn’t feel the same as everybody else. You’ll find this at Avon with our Cherished Memories and Precious Charmsjewerly collections, which are all about telling your story through your jewelry.”


TREND #2: Less That’s More

“These days, people are wanting less stuff, but what they do want has to be more important or it has to work harder for them,” he says. That could take the form of a really amazing splurge, like this fabulous fur vest, from Avon’s Holiday collection. “At $110, it’s is a higher price point for us, but it is the kind of thing that totally makes your outfit and makes you feel completely confident,” he says. The trend also extends to versatile pieces that give you a lot of bang for your buck. “Velvet is a key trend for fall, and our velvet top can be worn lots of different ways from casual to dressed up, depending on how you accessorize it,” he says.


TREND #3: Home is Where the Heart Is

“People are finding comfort in being at home with their families and close friends,” says Sengstack. “It’s less about going out to a restaurant or bar, and more about cooking dinner and entertaining more.” That means, you might be thinking more about special entertaining pieces for the table like a cheeky cheese board or a festive baking set. “Avon Living, our home entertaining and home décor collection, is about the product that gives you an idea that creates a moment that becomes a memory,” he says. “A copper mug may not be something you NEED, but it might give you the idea to make the fun Moscow Mule cocktail you have seen. Then, that becomes an experience you share and enjoy with family and friends and that mug made it more special and memorable.”

Selling AVON When You Hate Selling

The direct sales business has truly exploded. You can sell leggings and dresses nowadays! The one thing I love about AVON is that everyone knows about it. The amount of actual “selling” needed to succeed isn’t particularly difficult. People are familiar with the products they already love from AVON. The brochures are addictive. Once you start turning the pages, you won’t stop until the end. The key ingredient in succeeding with AVON is building your email database, blogging, and networking. The rest is on autopilot because AVON automatically sends emails to all of your clients.

Why is it so hard to find free make up samples?

I’ll tell you why. It takes time to ship free samples when it’s coming from an independent dealer. Avon beauty reps who don’t have an assistant want to know that you’re interested in buying the best Avon products before they give out free makeup samples.

avon-campaign-20-2015-brochure-onlineWho knew an AVON product could outlast, and outshine any other age rewinding product on the market. I didn’t have a clue until I became an AVON rep and started using it for myself.

I encourage you to check out the reviews of ANEW products on my estore though. The Pick of the MONTH goes to ANEW CLINICAL ADVANCED WRINKLE CORRECTOR  based on the results and reviews I’ve gotten from customers across the country. Although all of the AVON ANEW line of cleansers, hydration creams, and age spot corrector’s are invaluable.

AVON  Scrubs & Masks 

AVON Anew Moisturizers

One of the most important things we can do with our skin is moisturize. The most noted misconception is that oily skin is “bad” skin. On the contrary, naturally oily skin ages slower, gets fewer wrinkles before 50, and is the best youth preserving serum available. Sun bathing dries the skin and removes the natural moisture from it. Drinking alcohol in excess also accelerates skin aging. Naturally, drinking alcohol dehydrates the body. When you don’t replenish the alcohol with water, your hangover is worse and your skin is not only aging faster but losing elasticity quicker as well. Try one of AVON’s moisturizers along with a few glasses of water a day to combat all of the craziness you (we) put our skin through.
