I find this topic very interesting and would also like to know what it is like working at a makeup counter. I do have a few questions though. Say, if you work at Estee Lauder, do you get a percent off from the makeup for your own personal use. I want to say that is what one lady working at Estee Lauder told me. I would hope so! Also, can you work part-time...say, 8-16hrs a week) and still get the same percentages off? A few more questions: How much is the pay? Does it really depend on how much you sell? Is it that demanding? Do you still get hourly pay plus what you sell and what if you don't sell anything in a day and will that go against you? I've never seen makeup artists behind the counter trying to wave people over to their counter, lol. I do see some counters busier than others, ie: Clinique, Estee Lauder, and MAC. Then, I see people at other counters just sitting there looking bored. I am just wondering if the ones that don't sell as much are pressured by their managers to sell a certain percent. I love makeup and have thought about applying to a make-up counter part-time but I don't want to be pressured by my managers to sell. I want to have fun with the customers and apply, teach, and learn as well. Great topic :-)
Hi everyone. Nice to find a makeup forum. Let's see. A little about myself. I am a 30yr old married female (hey, males can like makeup too, lol). I am a nurse for the mentally challenged. Of course, I love skin care and makeup and here are a few of my favos :-) MAC (eyeshadows and liner) Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Estee Lauder lotions and potions for the face (anti-aging) Mary Kay (anti-aging moisturizer) And I know it's not makeup but just started Latisse 6 weeks ago. I love long lush lashes :-) I would like to learn new makeup tricks (especially eye makeup), money saving tips, and sharing new tips and tricks myself. Would love to hear from everyone :-)
