By Amanda DenBraber (Polak). Have you ever been at the drugstore looking for makeup within the package, wondering if this color is the right one for you? I know I’ve been there, looking around for someone to help you.
Before I went to Blanche MacDonald, I would always buy the more ‘affordable’ makeup to save money. With much trial and error, it turned out that I ended up with a broad collection of makeup’s that weren’t my color, wrong texture and that I purchased with an impulse. And there was never anyone there to talk about it to.
Especially with foundations, never knowing if it’s the right coloring or not, buying it because you need it. After using it a few times getting an irritation or breakouts from the cheap ingredients in it. My ladies in this situation, you should try out a beauty counter that is trained in finding the most suitable shades, texture and type of makeup for you. We are here to make your shopping atmosphere exciting and fun.
Choosing a brand like, Clinique, Lancôme or Estee Lauder you get a great quality of makeup and that insurance of knowing that you came to the right place. I feel that you’re never too young or too old to get a complimentary makeover when offered to you. That’s our job in the first place!
Now working in the cosmetic industry at a counter, I take the time with each client that has a certain idea or question. Of course buying something a little more expensive can make you feel a little selfish. But with a few good products that can multitask will save you in the long instead of dealing with the cheap trial and errors of buying cheap cosmetics.
Always state what you’re looking for. If application isn’t offered to you, do ask for this so you know if this will be the right fit and look your going for. Never feel pressured to buy from whoever your talking to, they’re not the one purchasing the item so take your time to make a decision. Get your beauty advisor who was helping you to give you her business card if you think you hit it off, get her to right down what she recommends to you or ask for her to put some on hold. This way they get the sale and extra on their paycheck with commission. Have fun with it, when walking buy ask questions to see what’s new on the counter because you never know if that’s what your looking for
