The Perfume & Beauty Industry | Small Business
By

The perfume and cosmetics industry is a tough market for small businesses, where 75 percent of the industry’s revenue goes to the top 50 companies, according to Hoovers. But there is room for smaller competitors when you concentrate on your local market and provide exceptional customer service. Pay attention to consumer spending, fashion trends and local demographics to succeed against the giants.

Create Specialty Market

While the big cosmetic manufacturers can supply consumers with a multitude of products in a variety of locations, they often can’t serve the niche markets that prefer customized beauty products and one-of-a-kind scents. As a small business owner, seek out perfume designers and local facial cream producers and give them an avenue to create sales. Whether you own a retail boutique or a salon, provide shelf space for specialty items that can’t be purchased anywhere else. Unique products that provide consumers with the results they

Bare-faced beauty that takes seconds | Beauty
By

I’ve always said “no-makeup makeup” is a total swizz. We’re led to believe that it takes 15 seconds to achieve it when the reality is more like 15 steps. However, on this occasion, this model (Balmain SS21) is actually not wearing very much at all. All you need is a powder foundation – the new ones don’t sit in creases, a brow product that makes even overgrown brows look groomed, and a balm for the lips. For anyone who can’t be bothered with a full-on maquillage, it’s perfect.

How to rock Spring 21 couture beauty looks
By

The recently showcased haute couture Spring 21 collections saw designers embracing a fresh, pared-back approach to beauty. Virginie Viard at Chanel showcased an intimate family wedding affair set in the South of France hence lending her models a gamine, lived-in look with strong brows and soft smokey eyes. It was a country wedding after all. Makeup maven Clint Fernandes observes that this matte summery look can be easily adapted to the Indian skin tone. “It’s matte and not overly dewy so works well in the hot Indian climes,” says he.

On the other hand, Maria Grazia Chiuri at Dior was inspired by the symbols and colours of the Tarot deck. She kept her models’ skin natural and eye makeup minimal while letting her creations do the talking.

Moreover, Fendi couture saw model Bella Hadid sporting an evening ready, contoured cheekbones and artfully wet hair. We got acclaimed makeup expert Clint

Are All-in-One Beauty Products the Future of Your Makeup Regimen? | W Magazine
By

Multiuse beauty products have taken center stage during the pandemic, when a quick swipe of color on the eyelids, cheeks, and lips can make a world of difference during Zoom meetings. But the trend was bubbling far before lockdown began last March. Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Match Stix (which highlight, conceal, and contour), Philosophy’s Instant Miracle Worker (an antiaging treatment that simultaneously blurs fine lines), and others have been around for years. Against the backdrop of Covid-19 and working from home, however, the need for a speedy pick-me-up has gained newfound importance. Enter Merit Beauty, a vegan makeup brand that launched on January 12, which touts itself as providing a complete “five-minute makeup look.” Its lip, cheek, and concealing products are meant to be multifunctional, and the complete line consists of everything you need for a full face of makeup while still retaining a natural look. But how does it work
