    I worked at Bare Escentuals part-time

    Pros

    The makeup and skincare is good for your skin, the discount is great and the company encourages you to move up within.

    Cons

    The company was bought by shiseido and I know they arent animal cruelty free, although a partner- non the less part of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency and professionalism.

    The first interview was just a get to know you. The second is an audition were you apply makeup to someone. The manager was very nice. They haven't called me back since the first interview

    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.
