We highly encourage you to read our review of three solid resources that can help you with your new business financing in our article, Small Business Financing: How to Obtain the Capital You Need to Start Your Business.

Cosmetic Store Business Business Overview:

If you frequent the department store makeup counter and pride yourself on your makeup application skills, you may be ready for your own cosmetic store business. Imagine working with people all day, making them feel better about themselves by highlighting their natural beauty. Getting to experiment with all the latest products and colors is just one of the perks to this business idea. But first things first. You need to find a location for your store. You should look in areas where women tend to shop. A cluster of boutiques or an outdoor shopping mall would be perfect. Once you find your location, you will need to secure funding. Starting a store from scratch can be a lot of legwork so it might be worthwhile to purchase a franchise business. A franchise will be more expensive up front but it should come with furnishings, a staff and likely some cosmetics stock. A business plan will help you sort out these types of details as well as what types of customers you will cater to, how many product lines you will carry, what your price points will be, etc. You will also need to market your business locally in magazines and on the Internet. Having a slick website will not only increase business by getting customers into your store, but you can also sell your products online. The best part of this business is the freedom it will give you to work only when you want to. Assuming you have a capable staff in place, the business will run itself and you can spend your time marketing and researching the latest cosmetics trends.
