There’s no business like show business

What You Can Expect

Customers: Varies, but around 10-20 new customers can be expected
Sales: Medium orders
Costs:  Your makeup to use on the actors and your time
You’ve no doubt heard of other consultants giving makeovers to their customers. This follows on from that thought and instead of giving makeovers to one, you’ll be giving it to many at once (well, sort of). What I’m talking about is to volunteer your ‘services’ to do the make-up at the local school play or the local amateur society. This works even best if you can round up a few other oriflame consultants to help you.

How to do this: When you know of a play coming up in your area either at your local amateur society or school just ring the director/teacher in charge and ask if there is anyone doing the makeup for the production and if not that you’d love to help out. Most of the times they will say that they don’t have anyone doing it and are eager for you to do it for ‘free’ for them. Try and find out how many people you will need to do the makeup for so you can determine how many other Oriflame /friends to bring along to help. As a guide you should be able to do about 4 or 5 people every half an hour depending on what their makeup needs are.

The best makeup to use for theatre production is the cream or mousse makeup types of foundation, blush and eye shadows. There is no need to buy any special makeup; Oriflame’s range is perfectly suitable for stage productions. (The exception to this is if specialized makeup is needed for certain characters eg tinman in Wizard of Oz, then the theatre production/school should supply this makeup)

Some extra tips:
 Don’t bother matching foundation to skin tone exactly. Just choose a few shades darker than their normal skin tone so it gives a ‘healthy’ look on stage as the bright lights tend to wash out people if they have too pale a face makeup.
•    Use extra blush. They aren’t going on a date, they are in a play.

•     Black eyeliner is great for when you need to draw on ‘whisker’s or to colour in a ‘nose’ to portray animals for children’s productions.

•    You can’t notice natural eye shadow colours on stage so feel free to use lots of colour.
By now you are probably saying that this all sounds like fun and all, but how am I going to get any customers or make any money? Well there are two main ways of doing this:
1. Program Advertising
Ask that your name, details and phone number be included on all the programs. Something like
MAKEUP PROVIDED BY Annette Cook, Independent Oriflame Consultant (555) 5555 2345
The director/teacher in charge won’t have a problem with adding something like this to the program. If you want something bigger or flashier you might have to negotiate or pay advertising, that’s really up to you.
As a bonus, parents or friends of those in the play usually keep the programs for keepsakes, so your details will be with them for a long time.
2. Sweepstakes/Drawing
Providing a raffle/sweepstakes to everyone that attends the play is also a good idea and a great place to get customers.

Using a similar concept to the sweepstakes mentioned in the post for hair salons, everyone that buys a ticket to the show will go in the draw to win a basket full of Oriflame goodies and/or a free makeover or facial. Have the basket on display in the ticket area if possible and use the suggested sweepstakes tickets from the previous post.
