It wasn’t until sophomore year of college that I really became interested in the beauty industry. I was interning at Bloglovin’ as a blogger relationship associate so I started reading a lot of beauty blogs and getting more into products. During that time I was also taking my first marketing class in college, Intro to Marketing, with Professor Bonezzi. During the class, we had guest speakers who were in various marketing roles. One of the guest speakers was Lillian Tung, who shared her experiences doing marketing for the beauty industry. Hearing her talk about what her role was like was what first peaked my interest in working in the beauty industry and doing marketing as a career.
I go to a business school where there is a lot of pressure to do finance but hearing about what it was like to do marketing in the beauty industry solidified my choice to pursue a career in marketing. I loved that it felt very entrepreneurial and required a mix of creative and quantitative skills. I owe a lot to Lillian Tung for speaking to my Intro to Marketing class because it led me to where I am today and played a huge role in helping me figure out what I want to do with my life – work in beauty marketing and someday hopefully start my own beauty company.
Lillian Tung left L’Oreal to co-found a beauty company called Fur, a business with rather unconventional products. Fur is the first brand to embrace the conversation around daily pubic hair care. It is the first line of products that cares for pubic hair and skin. I had the opportunity to interview Lillian and test out the products. Read more for the interview! View Post
