Maskcara is what I am chatting about today! I wanted to take some time and give you some answers on what it is like to be a Maskcara makeup artist. I will answer some questions here and you can get more details in the video that I will post below. Feel free to share that video with anyone that you feel might be interested or needs some questions answered.
How much does it cost to sign up? There are three options. The basic kit is $199, the Pro $399 and then there is a $9.99 monthly fee for your replicated website.
Here is a major perk of being a Maskcara artist. No Inventory!!!! That is right. I said it. No inventory. Corporate ships everything and handles the returns. It is just a huge relief knowing that you don’t have hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of product that is just sitting there waiting to be sold. Not having to have inventory takes the risk out of it.
How do parties work? Parties can be open for a really long time. In previous businesses that I have been with whenever there was a party situation some customers became frustrated because their order was on hold because the hostess was still trying to collect orders. Not with Maskcara. As soon as a customer pays for their order it is processes and shipped. A customer does NOT have to wait for the hostess to close out their party.
Also Maskcara encourages artists to keep parties open in their own name. It is an easy way to earn credit for product and discounts on items.
What are the commissions and minimums like? You earn 20% on all of your orders and can earn up to 40% based off of volume and your down line sales. You do not need to sell a minimum amount to be “active.” If you decided to build a team and want to earn commissions from your down line there are amounts that you need to hit but they are extremely reasonable and not hard to achieve.
Is there any education or training provided? I am part of the best team with an amazing up line. One of my close up lines happens to be the top in the company. Why does this matter? Because she is super amazing and goes above and beyond to provide free training and content so that we can all succeed. You can put a price on knowledge and experience.
Cara. Cara is the creator of Maskcara. She is beautiful inside and out. She is very much an active part of the artists and their lives. She does a facebook live video every week where she interacts with us and asks for suggestions and gives us information on what is to come. I have never been part of a company where you actually felt close and connected to the person at the top. Maskcara is truly special.
Is the product difficult to sell? The product truly sells itself. And in the event that it doen’t (haha) there is a 30 day money back return policy should something need to be returned or exchanged for a different product.
How long has the company been around? This company is at the ground level! The pre launch phase started in January 2017 and the official launch was August 2017. At the time of this post there are around 2500-3000 artists in the United States. I am number artist number 1768 which means I was the 768th artist to sign up. There is such a huge potential for growth. The Canadian market should be opening soon and so there is that much more potential.
How often are you paid? Maskcara artists are paid every Friday and then once a month they will receive another payment for any bonuses or down line commissions that they have received.
Why did I sign up? I admit I was a little nervous to sign up because I felt that I was not a “beauty” person. I was intimidated by beautiful people who seemed to be all put together. Then I tried the makeup and I realized how easy it was for me to apply. If I could do it anyone could do it. If I could feel this amazing and have new confidence then I knew that I needed to share that feeling and opportunity with others. The Maskcara Artists are some of the most awesome women I have met. I have made so many new friends. I have learned so much and stretched myself in ways I didn’t think possible. I have laughed hard.
There were a lot of reasons for me to say no to this idea but I’m glad I said yes and I have not regretted it or looked back.
If you have questions that I have not addressed in this post or video please contact me. I would love to have you on this Maskcara journey with me.
