I am a cosmetic chemist and a beauty consultant who have worked in retail at the counter- note, I no longer said “behind the counter” as you are supposed to be IN FRONT of the counter recruiting clients by showing them what’s new at all times. I love being at the counter as you get the first hand knowledge of what consumers want and the best market intelligence in addition to generous gratis and discounts.
Below is a summary of the frequently asked questions from consumers as well as my tips in working with the beauty consultants at the counter. Hope it’s enlightening for you :-).
Working in beauty is a lot of fun. Being a beauty consultant is the front line of communication for the beauty companies. I had the honor and fun working for several name brands at many different levels. I live and breath in beauty. If you have more questions about beauty, feel free to comment and reach out.
Until next time, Ginger
