work at home for moms

Make Money with Makeup: Part 1

It’s another week and you’re still at work. Days like today make me think of ways I can make money from the comfort of my own home. Who likes getting up and going into work so early every day? Not me.

Don’t we all dream of working from home? Whether it’s our main focus or a business we build on the side, doing business outside of the four walls of the office has a certain allure to it.

There are tons of work-at-home opportunities available. The hard part is deciding which one to invest in.

If you like makeup and beauty products, Younique might be just the business for you.

I had the opportunity recently to talk with Dee, a Younique presenter.

She’s just like you and me – trying to balance her career with being a mom to three great kids. She always thought there was more to life – like there was something missing. Dee found everything she’d been looking for and more when she started with Younique.

In this two-part series, you’ll learn what Younique is and the opportunities that it offers to invest in yourself. Next week you’ll discover how easy it is to get started and how to make it work for you!

How to make money with makeup and have fun makeover parties.

What is Younique and why were you drawn to it?

Dee: “Younique is a direct sales company that sells almost exclusively through social media and online networking. I was skeptical at first. I’ve always struggled with sensitivity to makeup and beauty products in general.

“A good friend of mine suggested I give Younique products a try and life has never been the same. I’d suffered for years with breakouts and itching caused by other cosmetic lines – even with the type made for sensitive skin!

“One night, after a long day (and night!), I went straight to bed without washing my face – yes, I was that tired! – knowing I’d wake up with breakouts the next morning. To my surprise, my skin was just as clear as ever! Even better, my makeup still looked good enough that with just a small touch up, I was able to get out of the house and on with my day.

“Generally, I don’t recommend wearing makeup for two days in a row. But I got more compliments wearing two day old Younique than I ever have before.

“After that, I was hooked.

“I signed up to be a presenter the very next day.”

Is this a good opportunity for busy women?

Dee: “I’m a single mom of three growing kids who works full-time as a nurse. Plus, I’m a cheer mom for my daughter’s squad and active in my church.

“I am busy. Just like you!

“The best thing about Younique is that you are in complete control of your schedule. You get to pick times to work on your business that work for you.

“Here are the top five things I love about Younique:

  1. It fits your schedule
  2. Marketing is done primarily online
  3. The flexibility of being able to do one-on-one demonstrations
  4. Absolutely no autoship!
  5. Amazing products – they really do sell themselves”

Are there benefits to being a Younique Presenter?

Dee: “Yes!

“Signing up to be a presenter is a great way to supplement your income and get your own makeup for free.

“But more than that, the greatest benefit for me is that I have the opportunity to watch women feel beautiful. As women, we are given an unrealistic expectation of how we “should” look. And when we fall short, we’re left feeling like we just don’t measure up.

“Younique brings out your natural beauty. My clients light up with confidence after a few minutes of a one-on-one makeover – they can’t believe it’s really them! It’s almost like they didn’t know they were beautiful before!

“One client, in particular, struggled with acne her whole life and when she tried the concealer and foundation for the first time, her excitement went through the roof! Her skin cleared up and her confidence soared as a result.

“There aren’t many chances in life where you can truly make a difference. And Younique gives that to me, and I love it.”

Do you love the products?

Dee: “Absolutely. 100%.

“I’ve used other natural cosmetics in the past but never been satisfied. The coloring was dull and they lacked staying power. I felt like I was constantly reapplying!

“Younique is all-day makeup. My skin feels great, never caked-on. And my skin even looks healthier since switching from department store brands!

“But don’t just take my word for it. There’s a 14-day “love it” guarantee so you can see for yourself.”

That’s it for part one.

Stay tuned next week for part two where you’ll learn how easy it is to get started, make money and grow your business!
