I get asked a LOT of questions – both about our products and about my business. I love questions! The more the better! I’ve rounded up a bunch of the questions I get asked most often. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, let me know!
Q: How do you apply the fiber mascara?
A: The mascara is really straightforward to apply, but it does take a little practice to get it just right. Everyone has their own little twist on how they apply the mascara to achieve their desired look, but the basics are always the same. Gel, Fibers, Gel.
|Step One: Apply a generous coat of Transplanting Gel to the upper lashes of one eye.|
|Step Two: Before the Transplanting Gel has a chance to dry, immediately apply a light coat of fibers to the ends of your lashes.|
|Step Three: Seal the fibers to your lashes with another coat of the transplanting gel.|
|Step Four: Repeat Steps One-Three on the other eye.|
Q: How do you take off fiber mascara?
A: Just like any other mascara! Use our fantastic Shine Makeup Remover Cloths, your favorite eye makeup remover, or even soap and water!
Q: How much money can I really make in this business?
A: How hard are you willing to work? There are presenters making over a MILLION a year, and there are women making a few hundred a month. It is entirely up to you.
Q: How long long will it take before I can quit my day job?
A: Again, that is entirely up to you and how hard you’re willing to work. This is not a get rich quick scheme. There are no short cuts. There are presenters that went to the top of the company within months, and there are presenters that are happy making just enough to cover their child’s baseball team dues.
Q: Is the makeup really that good?
A: YES! It really is! I’ve never used anything as good as Younique (and I’m a super makeup junkie)! Every time a new product comes out, I’m I got into this business because I was blown away by the product.
Q: What if I order something and it turns out to be the wrong color? What if I just don’t like it?
A: I believe everyone should be able to try out makeup – not just in a store, under weird lighting conditions, but in their everyday life! We guarantee you’ll love our products or you get your money back. It’s really that simple. We call it the LOVE IT GUARANTEE! Try the products in your real life for 14 days and if you aren’t head-over-heels, can’t-live-without-it in love with it, return it for a full refund. Want to see if the mascara really can withstand your hot yoga class? Great! Want to see for yourself how well the liquid to powder foundation covers? Awesome! Want to see if the face wash will help your teenager’s breakouts? Sure thing! You can try it all RISK FREE! It’s makeup buying how it should be.
Q: What is your favorite product aside from the mascara?
A: This is a hard one cos I love everything, but right now I’m crazy for the concealer and the cream eye shadows. Having a kiddo to run after is exhausting and even when I don’t get much sleep, I can hide my dark circles and still look stunning and well rested! And the cream shadow is awesome for doing your makeup quickly and having it last all day!
Q: What is your favorite thing about being a Younique Presenter?
A: I love that for the first time in my life, my work fits around my life, not my life fitting around my career. This “job” is what allows me to stay home with my son. I am not tied to an office or the time constraints of working in the corporate world. I run my business from my laptop, tablet or phone. I post selfies while out at the park in the middle of the day on a Tuesday.
I love helping other women. My cup truly runneth over when a client tells me how her confidence has soared since she was able to hide her adult acne with our foundation. My heart sings when I get an email from a client telling me that she is a breast cancer survivor and her lashes never grew back the same after chemo and this mascara has helped her feel “normal” again. But it’s not just helping clients. I am so proud when one of my teammates reaches a goal or qualifies for one of our incentive trips. I’m over the moon helping ladies surpass their goals and reach their dreams.
I love the sisterhood of our team. Everyone is there to help each other. We are running individual businesses, but we have created a support system that goes way beyond business – we are friends. I am part of a community of women that are focused on bettering themselves and others. I’ve never had a work environment that was so positive and rewarding.
I love the mission of the company – Uplift, Empower, Validate. There is so much back-stabbing and tearing others down between women in the corporate world. It’s like there are only so many seats for women at the head table, and if another woman is there, it means you aren’t. I hate that. This company, this mission, has completely changed my view of my fellow woman. Instead of competing, we’re cheering each other on. Instead of trying to take from another, we lend a hand. There is room for every woman that wants it and is willing to work for it at the head table.
I love that everyone runs their businesses in a way that suits them. Some ladies really love home parties and most of their business is done that way. Personally, my business is done almost 100% online. Because we are international, I’m not limited as to my customer base or who decides to jump aboard this crazy mascara train with me. I have clients and teammates all over the country, as well as in Canada, the UK, Germany, Mexico and as far away as Australia and New Zealand! There is no one way to run your business and Younique allows you incredible flexibility.
Okay, so that was actually 5 things that I love about Younique and you just asked for one so even though I could go on and on, I will stop…for now ;).
Q: Why are Younique products not available in stores?
A: Our founders, brother and sister team Derek Maxfield and Melanie Huscroft, wanted to start a company with the purpose of uplifting, empowering and validating women. They wanted to create a way for a women who needed to buy diapers or put food on the table to be able to make a sale and have the money they earned within 3 hours. To stay true to the mission of the company, Younique will only ever be sold through a Younique presenter or through their website. If the products were sold in stores, this would be in competition with women running their own business selling the products.
