In this job you would help customers choose the right beauty products. You would also help customers make the most of their appearance.
To do this job you should have an outgoing personality and friendly manner. You should have clear spoken communication skills. You also need excellent customer service skills.
Most beauty consultants work in department stores, but they are often employed directly by a cosmetics company and sell only that company’s products. Some work from home as self-employed beauty consultants and sell directly to customers, usually by demonstrating and selling products on a ‘party plan’ basis.
You do not need any specific qualifications to become a beauty consultant; however a related qualification will be help. You should have a smart appearance and a high standard of personal hygiene. Experience in retail, sales or customer service would be an advantage.
