Your answer to the final question is unique, I have never heard that as a reason for buying a product. Maybe some people are attracted by the same thing, just don't realise it.

That is interesting. What job do you have that requires you to wear cosmetics.

My job requires me to meet clients all the time so it's important to look at least presentable. It's no good to show a pale face to my clients.

How did you get into being a make-up artist, it has always sounded like such a cool job and I would love to do it through Uni or something, but I feel as though I would need loads of training and it would be something I would have to do as a career. Is that true?

Im 22 and i use make-up cosmetics.I use products of famouse brand with acceptable price and suitable functions. I don't spend a lot on this. I care the quality and feeling the packages gave me. Referring to the last question,I don't care this alot ciz any materials used by products are said to be good.I will judge just by my sense and feeling to tell is that true or false.
@Elixiress (3882)
2 Jun 08
Okay, what would you classify as an acceptable price as that can vary from person to person as it is subjective.

I wear Mineral Girlz makeup, it's the best in my opinion. It lasts forever, so I don't replace it often. Maybe once every two months or so. I can use just a little bit and it goes a long way without looking garrish or strange. And, it's all natural. As for promotional material and packaging, probably designs in black and pink catch my eyes more than anything. I don't know why I love that color combination, but I just do. It has sold me more products than anything else.
@Elixiress (3882)
2 Jun 08
I have never heard of that brand, I might look into it as I am trying to find cheaper make-up that is still good quality. As it is mineral make-up it will probably be about the same price as what I am using now.

I'll help you out! 1) I'm 29 2) Yes I do 3) Yes 4) Liquid make up, blush, eye liner, eye shadow, concealer, lip stick and mascara. Amongst others 5) About 15 to 20 US dollars 6) I'm not sure, if I find a product that works, I'll stick with it but if a product sticks out, I might try it. 7) Coupons, sale prices, maybe added amounts in the package or a bonus in the package might get me to try something new. I hope this helps. Your trully, Tianna

1) 18 2) Yes 3) N/A 4) Avon 5) $0-10, depending on what new products are in the Avon book 6 and 7) I never thought about it. To me, the packaging and promotional material doesn't matter. I only buy a product if I have tried it before or something similar and like it.

1) How old are you? I'm 23 and will be 24 next month 2) Do you use make-up cosmetics? Yes, I do. 3) If no, are you interested in using cosmetics in the future? Continue of you answered yes to either of the above questions. I think I will be using cosmetics as long as I have money to buy them. 4) What cosmetics products do you use? Usually concealer and pressed powder. Sometimes I use lip balm. 5) How much do you spend on cosmetics a month? I rarely buy, what I've bought this month will not be replaced or I will not have a new one until it's empty. I don't experiment much on cosmetics so I don't buy any other brand. 6) What attracts you to new cosmetics with regards to packaging? They have nice colors and skin tone color. Sometimes packaging matters but I'm more into its color, I mean the chemical itself. 7) What attracts you to new cosmetics with regards to promotional material? Again, if it has my skin tone color, no matter what the package or the promotional amount is, I will like it and might buy it.

Okies, I'll help ya out. 1. 21 2. Yes 3. Of course.. 4. Usually Avon lip gloss and eye shadow. I like Jordana lipsticks. 5. Approximately 10USD 6. Umm, really never thought of it. 7. Well Avon promotes through their campaign books, and the pictures are visually appealing. So it sorta tempts you to buy. The thing is, I get it cheaper at cosmetics store than ordering from the book anyway.
