Beauty Advisor Job Description

A beauty advisor is someone who uses their knowledge of skincare practices and products to help customers look their best. They usually work in a sales role for a corporation. But a beauty advisor can also work for individual clients.

A beauty advisor begins their work by asking clients to explain their skincare needs and goals. Then, they will use their specialized knowledge to recommend specific cosmetics and skincare items that will help the customer achieve their goals.

Most beauty advisors have sales goals that they try to meet. In order to do so, they need to be skilled at connecting with customers and developing relationships that result in repeat sales. Employees in this role may also demonstrate how to use specific products to clients by giving them makeovers.
