The Beginners Guide to Making Money From Home with Makeup

Here you’ll find the beginner’s guide to making money from home with makeup. Where to look, How to start and how much money you can make at the beginning.

As a SAHM (Stay at Home Mom) it is important to me that my kiddos see a confident, happy and hardworking momma. You know, I feel that I have to set an example for them.  that I can not only make money from home but also doing it while spending time with my family.

On 2015 I had hormonal troubles due to Endometriosis. I was depressed, insecure, tired and had gained over 15 lbs in less than 6 months. I had no job and staying at home all day didn’t help. One morning, I came across a quote that said:

“Say nice things about your body, dress it up, and take it out. Give it hot sex, luxurious baths, and massages. Move it, stretch it, nourish it, hydrate it, pay attention to it—The better our bodies feel, the happier and more productive we are.” Jen Sincero

It streaked me, deeply. I was on my Pj’s in bed, where I spend most of my time, sometimes doing homework or sleeping until the kids got home from school and I manage to get up to make dinner and talk to them about their day. Hubby will come home and find me just the same way that he left me in the morning.

I felt embarrassed, ashamed. If you have ever experienced this, you know how hard this can be.

I dragged myself to the shower, that quote really did an echo in my head: “Say nice things about your body, dress it up and take it out…” 

So, I decided that I will dress up and will put a little makeup just to cheer me up. To my surprise, my mascara had dried out. It was like the universe was doing a conspiracy against me. It was good news actually, that mascara didn’t work as I wanted anyways.

For my short eyelashes wouldn’t be nice to finally find a mascara that enhances my eyes?

So I went on my phone and after a little bit of research, I finally found it! They offered a guarantee If you don’t love it get your money back” so, I ordered it online, it arrived a few days later to my home and tried right away!

It was AMAZING! And it felt so good getting compliments for my long lashes.

I discovered that also they have a foundation that leaves your skin flawless and with a porcelain feeling-looking. So I looked for a deal and they had one: $99 dollars for a kit with tons of stuff.

Now, back to work from home. Later, I did purchase the foundation for $35 dollars  and – here’s where gets interesting – three hours later 3, THREE hours later !! I got this email:

Younique Comission - Great Ideas Mom - Work from Home

Say whaaat?? I could Make Money from my own purchases??

 I went and re-read the whole page and it turns out I could get a 20% Commission like REAL MONEY!

Girl, I don’t know about you but I was hooked! So, I decided to do it and I’d do it only for me. I didn’t really have any interest in selling and that was the cool part too, I wasn’t obligated to.

I had made $7 dlls by purchasing my own foundation. How many cosmetics do you buy? Do the math, aren’t you interested in how much money you could’ve been getting back in return from those purchases?

What is Making Money from Home with Makeup?

If you are like me, no too much makeup – don’t know how to do makeup on myself – but I like applying makeup now and then, you’ll find this interesting. (see my progress!)

I always thought that there was nothing you can do to help overcome your insecurities other than reading books, exercise, and happy thoughts. To my surprise, making money from home by doing my own makeup, wasn’t that much but I could see the potential.

I enjoyed taking selfies and post it on Facebook, send it to my hubby and you know, sooner I’d find myself more confident, I like what I saw in the mirror plus a friend post it on Facebook about her frustration to find the right mascara that I send her a before and after of my eyelashes and she decided to make a purchase through my store. Oh! Because you get your own little “store”.

People always think that when you join to do this kind of job, you have to be sellsy and pushy about what you sell. Truth is, it just takes three things:

  1. A Selfie
  2. Determination
  3. Social Media

For me, it means no depression or at least feeling better, no insecurities – I mean my hormones still crazy but I didn’t pay much attention because this is fun! – and extra money!

There are lots of companies that you can join, but in my research, I found all the information crystal clear in the Younique website, no hidden links, no hidden info, as I said: very crystal clear. I love this about any Company!

How to get started with Younique?

To get started with Younique is easy. You go to their website and invest in the kit. $99 dollars for all these goodies.

After this step, you are all set to get 20% Real Money on your account on your future purchases!

Tips for Success in Making Money From Home with Makeup

  • Love yourself. This is important, even if you are scared about the start. It’s ok. Trust in yourself.
  • Forget about what others might think of you. There’s going to be a lot of selfies but it’s all about sharing what you love.
  • Set up your goals.
  • Make a plan. Would you like to do this in the mornings, afternoons, nights, part-time, full time?
  • Let your children know what you are doing and what are your goals
  • Help other women, with makeup or not. This means they could use the makeup products or just the skincare line. Help them with their struggles about those topics. You might find your next best friend there!
  • Build a Community. This could be a Facebook Page, a Facebook Group. You build your community to be around the people you feel comfortable with.
  • Help your audience with tips about life, makeup, children, life, etc. All the things where you have a story to tell, advice or you know the how-to… help them! It’s not about sell-sell-sell. This could be your next career if you want to.
  • Take selfies, lots of them. Don’t fake them, people notice that. Just be you!
  • Have fun!
