I am not gonna lie, on my days off from work I typically find myself wandering into local beauty supply stores and places with makeup counters etc. I find that even though I am in the biz, and even though I know the In's and the Outs, I am still kind of put off by the general tude in the stores. I was thinking yesterday that some cosmetics counters and stores seem to be more intimidating than others. I have found on my journey that some cosmetics lines are just nicer than others. Why is this the case? Why is it that in this economy some of those lines and stores still feel an incessant need to make us feel bad? I guess the way that I kind of see it is that if I am spending my hard earned cash on a blush, you better be happy about it, tell me how to use it and, be nice about it. I was thinking how nice it would be to not be intimidated by cosmetics lines and to feel appreciated. I honestly think that this is one of the reasons that drug store lines do so well. No one will pressure you into purchasing something that you do not need and no one will give you a sly look as you walk in the door.
Here are a few ways to combat the cosmetics line bitchy tude.
