To sell cosmetics, first decide what type of cosmetic products you wish to sell, then determine who the products would benefit, and figure out where you would like to sell them. Whether you choose to make your own cosmetics or sell pre-made ones, quality is crucial to your success.

  1. Decide what type of cosmetic product you wish to sell

    Start by choosing whether you want to make the products yourself or sell products that are already made. If you are making your own products, you must ensure that they are made safely and hygienically. If you choose to sell products that are already made, decide whether you want to sell as a representative of a company or whether you want to buy products wholesale and sell them through an online or physical shop.

  2. Determine your target market

    To determine your target market, consider who is likely to need or want your products. Once you know who would benefit from your products, you are more likely to see successful sales.

  3. Determine where you will sell your cosmetic products

    If your products are made at home, you may decide to open a physical shop to sell them. You can also sell them online through classifieds, your own website or online auction sites. If you sell as a representative of a company, you may also sell your products through a physical shop or online one as well as at home cosmetics parties.
