Who is Dior Brooks Cosmetics?
Dior Brooks Cosmetics recruits Models to do a photo shoot with them, yet what they are really recruiting for is for the Models to sell their products to their friends and online. Here are some videos.

Dior Brooks Cosmetics is a "cosmetics" company out of Atlanta, Georgia, even though the Georgia Secretary of State's business register has no such company registered.
A mother writes an attorney about Dior Brooks Cosmetics and asks if it is legit.
While I can't say categorically, this company is a scam, I would delete this email and have nothing further to do with them. I looked at the company website. It claims to be in Atlanta, Georgia. The site is unfinished and the product line consists of only 6 items. The site is basic, and the literacy level is low: e.g. "It's Brooks cosmetics carry all the exciting new lip colors from bold to a more natural look." The Georgia Secretary of State's business register has no such company as Dior Brooks Cosmetics doing business in Georgia. They should be there for tax purposes. The registration information for the website shows that the domain name was only registered on May 27, 2017. So the site is a little over 7 months old. It also shows that it was only registered for one year, the least amount of time one can reserve a domain name for. This company has not set itself up for the long haul to protect its brand, and that's the sign of a likely scam. In less than 5 months it is slated to disappear. The rule of thumb is to avoid anything unsolicited that comes your way on the web and which is too good to be true. This random solicitation is phishing for your daughter's personal information by claiming that she will profit from a transaction with a start-up business with no track history. She'll wind up having to give them her credit card information, to make the purchase, and sensitive information about herself, including her picture, and all of this to some stranger from a company she's never heard of that is making the same pitch to thousands of people every day via email. Avoid!
