We’re pleased to introduce you to Kayla Nash. The Ramer, Tennessee native is a new Avon Representative and the official winner of our #AvonxProjectRunway Warrior Women Challenge, which invited women from around the country to share the makeup look that made them feel the most confident. Out of 1700 entries, Kayla’s bold eye makeup and soft pink lip look reigned supreme with a whopping 2,267 votes! Her prize: every single one of the 118 products used in the Avon Beauty Lab during Season 16 of Project Runway, plus first dibs on the new highlighter and contour kit available this January. We chatted with Kayla to learn more about what it means to be a “warrior woman”.
Congratulations on winning the Warrior Women Challenge! We want to start off by asking you this: what inspires you to be fearless every day?
"My husband, family, and my mentor, Tina Patton, inspire me to be fearless every day. They encourage me to take a hold of what I want and go after it full force. I try new things and don't quit until I have conquered it and made it mine. There is nothing that I can't accomplish!"
We absolutely loved the look you created. Why did you select this look and how does it make you feel like a warrior woman?
"I love the way Avon's colors blend so well together. The combination of these colors are so beautiful. They make my eyes stand out and bring out all my best features. This look makes me feel strong, beautiful and happy. All the beauty from within is pulled to the surface for everyone to see."
What advice do you have for women looking to break away from their normal routine and become their own boss?
"Just be yourself! Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone; to be the BOSS..... you need to be YOU! You can do anything if you just set your mind to it. Never fear failure; believe in yourself and others will believe in you. And, as my mentor Tina always says, 'Never give up - Rise above - Always find the positive in the negative'."
