    Retail Makeup Artist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (London, England) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Three interviews can me tedious however it was straight forward. I applied and my video interview was not perfect I believed they asked my 5 questions, I made sure I was smiling and gave of friendliness. I imagined the attitude they wanted their employees to have and tried to mimic that. I showed enthusiasm and talked about my passion for makeup.
    the second interview I did makeup on my guest they gave me a brief of read lips and a fresh face. don't be nervous and do your best. be confident in your skills and make sure you are talking to your guest. ask them their skin type. do you have any problems with their skin. breakdown everything you are doing. there is no need for perfection just be friendly and do the makeup within the time Frame also use the pic plus spray. and be hygienic. try and sell each product as well highlighting their benefits
