PRIIA’s Customers Speak Out!

Surprise galsI just LOVE hearing positive feedback about the products my company, PRIIA Cosmetics, has to offer.  It's especially gratifying when a glowing review comes in from someone who was pretty skeptical about mineral makeup.

As a part of my business model, I offer my products at wholesale.  This means that qualified business owners can partner with PRIIA to sell my branded name products or they have the option to put their name on these goodies (private label).  Recently, a private label customer emailed me to let me know that her mom is now 'hooked' on the makeup and she just had to share the story of how this came to be.  Read on…

"Hi Kelley!

Wanted to share…my mom was recently visiting and tried the makeup.  She is floored and EXTREMELY grateful that you created a line that she has searched for, for 60 years.  She tossed all her other makeup in the trash while she was here and has completely converted to PRIIA! 

It was funny, after I showed her how to apply it (she watched me put on my makeup, completely doubting the stamp and blend process because 'that is just too easy'), then she applied it herself…she hated it initially.  Her first response was, 'See- for you, you don't need the coverage.  It doesn't cover anything. It's too light- I think I need a darker shade.'

I told her, 'Wait mom.  Walk away from the mirror.'  I distracted her with coffee and then brought her back into the bathroom.  I wish I had a picture of her reaction. PRICELESS!  I had to remind her that she had just applied mascara, so no crying!

All she kept saying was, 'Oh my GOSH! Wow, my skin is so pretty. And my dark circles are GONE.'  I have to say, the concealer she was previously using (Dermaquest and MAC), was applied so thick because that was the only way to cover the purple.  It made her eyes so heavy and dark.  It aged her probably 5 years every morning.

She looks beautiful!

She's been home for a week and called me yesterday telling me that she couldn't get over looking in the mirror and seeing this version of herself (the version she 'feels' she is) staring back at her.

Thanks for helping me give my mom the BEST Mother's Day gift EVER!  For that, I am eternally grateful!  I wish I lived within 3,000 miles of her. All of her friends would be buying from me." – C.C., Alaska

WOW!  That was an amazing story about how one of my private label clients introduced PRIIA to the people in her circle of influence.  The trickle down theory is clearly at work here.  I've helped this client to start a successful mineral makeup business and she's helping her clients to look their best!  This is why I LOVE what I do.

If you've got a favorite PRIIA product, share it with the people you know and love.  Sharing is caring. You just never know when you can make someone feel great about themselves!

If you're looking for a mineral makeup brand to partner with, give me shout.  I'd love to help become a mineral makeup rockstar too!

Cheers!

Advanced Mineral Makeup Techniques For The EYES

Welcome to Part 2 of my three part series called "The Fortune is in the Face".  Todays lesson is all about using advanced mineral makeup techniques to enhance your beautiful peepers. Enjoy!

Eyes: 

I believe ANYONE can wear ANY color!  There is no right or wrong per se when choosing colors for the eyes!  It’s more about the shape of the eye and where to apply highlights, midtones and accents.  If you’re very unsure as to which colors to choose, choose neutral colors based on your skin tone or refer back to the color wheel and choose colors that are complimentary to the eye color.

 

Best Types of Eye
Shadow to Use:

Matte or Satin.  Shimmers/Glitters/Frosts should be used sparingly unless creating a dramatic effect or doing teen makeup.  Satin shadows work best for highlighting and accenting.  Matte shadows work well as midtones.

 

Eye Lateral
Position:

Determines how to apply the eye liner.

 

Close-set: The space between
the hairline and the eye is GREATER
than the space between the eyes.  Liner
should be applied half way (pupil) outward to the edge of the eye.

 

Wide-set: The space between
the hairline and the eye is LESS than
the space between the eyes.  Liner should
be applied all the way across the eye from inner corner to outer edge.

 

Eye Shapes: Basic (average), Close-set, Wide-set, Prominent (bulging), Hooded (naturally or from age), Deep-set, Down-turned.

Various eye shapes

For Down-turned or “droopy” eyes:
Similar application to ‘Average Eyes’ except make sure the accent color starts slightly inward from the outside
corner of the eye.

 

Concealing Dark
Circles & Under Eye Puffiness:

Use a salmon-colored (NOT yellow) concealer to conceal dark circles as this will neutralize blue/purple/red
discolorations.  For puffiness, ONLY conceal the shadow the raised/puffy area creates- not the actual ‘puffed’
area.  By concealing only the shadowed area, it helps to make the raised area appear flat and even with the rest of the face.  In need of a great salmon-colored under eye concealer?  Look no further!  Give PRIIA's Mineral Under Eye Concealer a try!  It's the best thing since sliced bread!

Stay tuned for next weeks lesson: LIPS

Cheers!

A New Direction for PRIIA Cosmetics?

When I started PRIIA Cosmetics, it was (and still is) my goal to help wowen by creating and offering a line of healthy, natural and artisan-quality cosmetics to the masses.  I also opened the opportunity for business owners and licensed professionals to start their own mineral makeup businesses by purchasing wholesale and using either the PRIIA branded name or going the route of private label.

Recently, I've been contacted by a few customers who have asked if there were any business opportunities for people who aren't licensed professionals or business owners.  Basically, they wanted to know if there were any PRIIA "consultant" positions available; in otherwords, direct sales.  In my mind, I immediately recoiled.  Why?  Well, in a former life, I was involved with many different companies selling anything from candles, to cosmetics, to cleaning products, etc.  I remembered the feelings of having to force myself to just walk up to strangers at the mall or a "home party", introduce myself and get them to listen to my sales pitch.  I absolutely DREADED that.  My stomach would cringe, my palms would sweat and my mouth would get dry.  However, I needed to make the sale because I needed to make money. So, I mustered up the courage to open my mouth.  Don't get me wrong, it's not that I wasn't successful with these companies; I was.  I made good money, earned some free trips but I always longed for something better.  I didn't want to be out doing "parties" and lugging stuff around in my trunk.  I didn't want to have to buy inventory,  process orders, make deliveries or worry if a "party" would cancel on me.  Worse yet, I didn't want to beg someone to host a party for me. The idea was that I was supposed to be doing a home-based business, yet I was constantly out delivering products, going to meetings, etc.  I wasn't really home much at all.  I longed for a business opportunity that I could truly work from home and around my schedule but I never really found it.

Well, fast forward many years- I'm now a licensed esthetician and have my own salon as well as natural cosmetics business (PRIIA).  I don't work from home per se, but I do call the shots and I'm OK with that.  However, I KNOW that there are women out there who are looking for an opportunity like I was many moons ago.  Maybe some of them just want to make a little extra money each month and maybe some want to quit their jobs and be at home full-time with their children.  I'm considering creating an opportunity with my company, PRIIA Cosmetics, which will offer just that.  If I do, it will NOT be a typical direct sales party plan or any type of multi-level pyramid gig.  There won't be any parties to plan, inventory to buy, orders to process or products to deliver. It will be a true opportunity to work from home at one's own pace and around one's personal schedule. The investment to get started will be either be no investment, a very low investment or a choice of both…I haven't decided yet.  I'm still mulling over the entire scenario.

I have to tell you, I am soooooooo sickened by all of the work-from-home scams that are out there as well.  There are many unscrupulous individuals & companies out there today who are preying upon those who are truly looking for something better in their lives.  All you have to do is google 'work from home' and you'll get a zillion searches to come up; most of which are scams.  But, people are desperate today and it's easy to fall victim to some slick sales page that promises you're going to make $1000+ per day by just clicking a button.  It doesn't work that way ladies- believe me, I know.  The scammers and theives are the only ones making that kind of money because you've opened up your bank accounts to them in the hopes of making a better life for you and your family.  True homebased businesses do require you to WORK.  However, it's my goal to create an opportunity that allows you to work SMARTER not harder.

If you've tried PRIIA, you already know that it's a great product.  Some of you have sent beautiful testimonials after using the line and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sincere and kind words.  Many of you have recommended PRIIA to your family and friends- and again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Word-of-mouth is the best form of advertising I could ever hope for.  I believe now is the time to start rewarding you personally and financially for your referrals and also rewarding those clients who buy PRIIA's products based upon your recommendations.

Here's what I need to know from YOU:  Is there any interest at all from you about the above proposed business opportunity?  I want hear your thoughts, ideas and opinions. What do you think???  Please leave a comment for me.  Thank you!

Cheers!
