    I have been working at Bare Escentuals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The discounts are 50% off all products including the outlet bareminerals stores. Also when new products launch you get them for free

    Cons

    Opportunities are limited but when you work your butt off it will eventually pay off and you will be recognized for it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Bare Escentuals.

    Interview

    Just casual questions getting to know me, asking about my experience in retail along with my experience involving not only make up but specifically their products. Then they informed me about the training process that would be involved. After an in-person interview, I was called in for an "audition" where I was to show my skills with applying make-up to another person using the products and brushes provided.

    21 Beauty Products To Try In 2015

    Call us crazy, but one of our favorite things to do as beauty people is offer up product suggestions. It's for good reason - we spend most of our days up to our ears in bottles and tubes, and our bathrooms are pretty much overflowing with liners and lipsticks a-plenty.
