The easiest and most cost-effective way to become a cosmetics distributor is to join a direct sales company as an independent consultant.

Another potential path you could take is to develop, buy and market your own cosmetics through an independent laboratory or wholesaler or by making your own items.

Perhaps the most popular way to become a cosmetics distributor is through direct sales companies. There is a wide range of cosmetic companies that offer opportunities to those who are interested in having their own business. To join one of these companies, you will likely need to purchase a kit that contains a selection of products to use in demos.

After purchasing the kit, you will receive some form of training and initial marketing materials and instructions. You can also get your own website to take online orders. As a direct selling cosmetics distributor, you will often do demonstrations or parties at home with a hostess and her friends and family that she has invited. Once you show each person the products you offer, everyone will have a chance to order the products they like. You will receive a commission on sales.

Another way to become a cosmetics distributor is to get a job directly at a cosmetics company. To do this, you’ll likely need a four-year college degree in retail marketing or something similar. As a direct distributor for a cosmetics company, you will likely try to sell products at department stores and other retailers.

While this is a less common path, you can also become a cosmetics distributor by buying or developing your own products and selling them to retailers or directly to consumers. There are some cosmetic labs that develop new products and then sell them to cosmetics retailers so they can add their own brand and sell them as their own products. You can do this or sell a wide variety of brands from popular existing retailers.

Regardless of which path you choose, you will need to learn basic marketing skills. Even if you are not required to attend school, you should at least read books, attend seminars, and do whatever else you feel will help you learn the fundamentals of sales and marketing. This will help you better sell the products you choose.
