With the approaching holiday season it’s time to party! Why not take opportunity of this fact by offering party makeup consultations. You would be making your clients feel special and you’ll be earning some extra income.
In addition if you’re in direct sales party makeup consultations provide you with another opportunity to demonstrate and sell products. Why not use your skills to make people look good or even teach others how to make themselves look good.
The first thing you need to think about is what you actually need to take with you to hold a successful party makeup consultation. You’ll need the following:
· A Makeup Kit
· Disposal brushes*, cotton pads, cotton buds
· Products for sale
· Hand Cleaner
· Face Cloths and Towels
· Hair Bands and Clips
· Makeup Remover and Skin Care Products
· Table Cloth
· Beauty Apron
· Beauty Coat
· Business Cards
· Small Notepads and pens
*It is better to use disposable items instead of sharing brushes. It gives a sense to the guests that you are very professional and mindful of health and safety. If you do use non disposable brushes during the consultation do not use them on different faces without cleaning them with a proper brush cleaner in between.
With Party season coming up you might want to create gift sets. For example if your clients are going to a party you might want to put a lipstick, blusher, highlighter, powder and mascara for example together in a pretty bag that they can purchase and take with them to the party for touch-ups. Just make sure that you use those items in your consultation to demonstrate how to use them.
You can also take some small notepads and pens for the guests to make notes on what they discover and they might want to jot down any make-up tips you give them or jot down any colours or any products that they used at the consultation. One further item to remember if you’re running a beauty business is to take some business cards to hand out as well.
If you regularly hold party makeup consultations I suggest creating a checklist that you can look at to ensure you don’t forget anything. There’s nothing worse than being at a client’s home and realizing that you’ve left something critical behind.
What’s stopping you? Why not use your skills and creativity to earn extra money this holiday season and at the same time make other people look good and feel special in their party gear too.
