Exploring Life & Business with Evonne Britton of Belleathlete Cosmetics

Today we’d like to introduce you to Evonne Britton.

Hi Evonne, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I am a track and field athlete who is passionate about health and beauty. I found my love for the hurdles when I was in middle school. I knew I was made to hurdle when I won my first race after never practicing and my dad volunteering me to run the hurdles race. Ever since then, I have had the desire to be the best athlete I can be and compete at the highest level. After winning the Texas stare meet in high school, I ran on a full scholarship at Penn State University where I was a junior Olympic medalist and currently hold the 60m indoor hurdle record and am one of the fastest 100 and 400 meter hurdlers. One of my goals as an athlete is to make an Olympic team. Since I was a little girl, I had an interest in beauty, I first learned to braid hair from watching my mom braid my and my sister’s hair. Trying new styles and expressing myself was really cool. I ended up on YouTube looking up new styles and found my love for beauty increasing as I learned about different topics from skincare to makeup. Since covid, I have been focused on graduating with my master’s degree in health administration as well as starting my own cosmetics brand called belleathlete. With my experience as a track and field athlete, I enjoy coaching younger athletes.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
The road hasn’t always been smooth one of my biggest obstacles I have had to overcome was a meniscus surgery I had on my left knee after falling while I was hurdling my sophomore year of college. After that, I was determined to recover and get back in the track which I ended up doing and breaking the school record which I currently hold in the 60mh

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
BelleAthlete is a high-performing unique cosmetics store dedicated to helping everyone look their best and do even better! Our mission is to inspire women to be confident and embrace who they are. As an athlete and a company out cause is to give back and donate To Support Girls and Women in Sports foundation!! I decided to start my own business because I know how busy I am as an athlete but how taking the time to care not only fit my body but my appearance plays a big role in how I feel and how I perform. I want to provide an easier way for everyone to feel this way. We currently offer makeup products from lashes to lipgloss to makeup bags and cosmetic essentials.

We’d love to hear about any fond memories you have from when you were growing up?
I remember traveling to Arizona as a high school athlete and my parents driving me to a track meet where I competed with collegiate athletes and did pretty well. It showed me that I was capable of doing anything I set my mind to and worked hard for.
