I am always on the hunt for great natural haircare products. My natural hair journey has been on for a few years now, and the journey so far has been a teacher. I have learnt which products work best for my hair type and how best to apply them. My hair is growing at a terrific rate now and the texture of my hair is also starting to change. It is so beautiful.

Turning Your Love of Beauty Into a Business: 4 Parts To Ponder

*Collaborative post.

If you’ve spent so much time turning your spare room into a home office, you might have thought about how you can capitalise on this. If you have a love for all things beauty and fashion, and you’ve grown frustrated with your current job, or you are worried that the economy is going to result in redundancy for you, you may want to start thinking about what it takes to turn your love of beauty into a business. Also, if you don’t enjoy your job, now is the time to take control of your life. What does it take?

Look at Transferable Skills

Many people look at starting all over again as an opportunity to retrain. While in beauty, you can partake in aesthetics training and get relevant qualifications, you should not underestimate your transferable skills. If you are particularly good at doing your own makeup, is this something that you can transfer into another business venture? Some people need professional makeup artists, such as models or musicians, and when you start to gather some specific looks and styles, this is the best way to bring a portfolio together. It is so important to look at the transferable skills you already have, not just in terms of your love beauty, but also your skills learnt in other areas. 

Start Small, but Manageable

The important thing to remember when you are turning your love of beauty into a business is that you can overreach. It is important to learn that building up the business is about acquiring knowledge in a certain area, while also making sure that you are able to scale up the business in a manageable fashion. This is why it’s a good idea to start your business venture by doing something little, for example, a blog that incorporates affiliate marketing. When we start small, we have complete control over our product, and this is where we learn the most important lessons in running businesses. Because a business is not just about the product or the promotion, but it’s about the customer service. When we start to think about what customers need, we can have a solid grip on what our business should be, what it offers, and how we can promote ourselves.

It’s Who You Know!

Turning your love of beauty into a business is about making sure that you have the right clientele. You can be in a chicken and egg situation: making sure that you know that you’ve got the right customers or being 100% sure of your own image, but you need to be both. When it comes to bolstering your business, one of the most important ways to get yourself out there is to network. In terms of fashion and beauty, there are so many fashion and beauty bloggers out there, but also realising that you can network online, as well as in the real world. It is vital to learn how to network effectively, such as by demonstrating soft skills, but also not being pushy.

When people go to networking events, the truth of the matter is that everybody has a product to push, but this means you’ve got to come across as approachable without being pushy. Focus on building friendships first, and this works to help you find the people that will want to work with you but also it will help you find the people that you actually want to work with. Sometimes, we can scramble for customers and clients, but sometimes if they don’t align with our way of thinking, this can cause more problems than it’s worth.

Do Not Stand in the Way of Yourself

Running any form of business can be about finding the right time to make the leap from normal working life to unknown territory. It is usually ourselves that will stop us from taking a leap of faith. This usually involves doubt or some form of anxiety. And it’s a lot better to keep things as they are but we will never know what we can achieve if we do not make the leap. When the chance comes, we have to take it. And when it comes to doing something that you love and you have a passion for, you have to remember that you are the biggest obstacle. 

Sometimes we think that we’ve got to do sufficient preparation to take the leap, when we have a passion for something, turning this love of beauty and fashion into a business immediately translates to enthusiasm. Sometimes people picture themselves having more freedom, being more creative, and it’s important to pay the bills but it is just as important to turn something you love into a livelihood.

 

 

 

Beauty Muse: Tanya Sam

*Affiliate link.

The Beauty Muse for this month is the stunning Tanya Sam from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I think this beauty muse is just gorgeous. Her skin is flawless and she has some amazing facial features. I loved seeing her on The Real Housewives of Atlanta show. She was fun to watch. It is a shame to hear she wouldn’t be coming on the show again thanks to the drama surrounding Cynthia Bailey’s Bachelorette party and Bolo. Are you a fan of the show? Did you watch that episode?

Beauty Muse – Tanya Sam

Anyways, back to our beauty muse. I love how Tanya Sam wears her makeup. Her makeup is always flawless, never too much, always perfectly applied. Our skin is so beautiful and I believe that is why her makeup is always flawless. A flawless complexion is the best foundation for a perfect makeup.

Tanya Sam shared some beauty secrets with The Lookbook, here are some excerpts from the interview:

“I am obsessed with the Image Skincare [Total Facial] Cleanser because I wear a lot of makeup so I just got to get the junk off. I love that,” she shared.

It is important to spend money on the right cleanser especially you put on a lot of makeup because you need to ensure you get them all wiped off before going to bed. This cleanser sounds like it does a terrific job for Ms Sam.

“I’m a strong proponent of getting a facial and get a good [microdermabrasion], for sure.” In addition to these facial treatments, Tanya also loves Botox. “My sisters and I call it bo-bo,” she quipped.

It is important to get a facial regularly. I love treating my skin to a great home facial. It does wonders for my skin. Microdermabrasion is another great cosmetic treatment and I can see why Tania Sam loves having it done. Botox is not a treatment I have tried or plan on trying but I know it is very popular and many women love having the treatment done.
