So you love mineral makeup and you want to get involved as an independent business owner. This is a great idea for those who already love the products, because it is less about selling items and more about sharing something that you love with other people who doesn’t want to do that? For those who have taken advantage of the business opportunity these cosmetics have presented, there are many different ways of getting your business off of the ground and building a solid clientele base. It is all a matter of doing it, and doing it the right way.

Having a makeup party is by far the most well thought out method of creating business relationships with potential clientele and making oneself comfortable with the idea of being an independent business owner and the products that are offered. Now, the only problem is actually planning and throwing the party. Here are five great steps to success to get you started.

Step 1: Get Out Invitations

Getting out invitations is the first and most important step when it comes to planning a mineral makeup party. Without invitations, nobody will know about your party and nobody will come, point blank period. Word of mouth does not work with things like this. Whether you use pre-made invitations, e-mailed invitations, or make your own creative invitations it is extremely important that they go out! At least a week in advance but no more than two weeks in advance is perfect; otherwise guests forget about it or have made other plans by the time they got the invite. Be sure to give specific instructions as to what time to come, what to bring, and to wear a fresh clean face if possible.

Step 2: Get Yourself Together

After you have sent out the invites, you should immediately start on getting things together. Making notes and lists sometimes works for things like this. How many people are you actually expecting to come? Make sure that you have more than enough refreshments for each, and a small snack or light meal that they can eat in their seats. Give yourself time that day or the night before to prepare the refreshments. Ensure that you have the right materials, the right products, and the right person to do your mineral makeup ‘makeover’ on. If you are using a host other than yourself, get that person prepared as well.

Step 3: Double-Check

You won’t be successful with your party if you are not organized, and double-checking is definitely a great way to get organized. Double check your RSVPs, your product stash, your raffle ticket stash, whether or not your host or your ‘test makeover dummy’ will be coming. Unexpected things are going to happen, but double checking can help you organize enough to where they won’t ruin the fun.

Step 4: Party it Up!

After all of the hard work, you get to have the party. Enjoy time with your friends; play with makeup, place orders, and talk Girl-Talk. All of these things are what makeup parties are about that and building a clientele base. If everything goes smoothly, great! If not, you have something to learn from for your next party. Don’t forget the raffle tickets and the ‘surprise gift!’
