Cosmetic Displays

Posted in Cosmetic Display by Arcadia on March 31, 2011

When I worked for Macy’s one of my favorite departments to work in was definitely cosmetics!  I LOVED setting up my cosmetic displays at the end of each week, in preparation for the GWP (gift with purchase) promo for whichever company was holding one; not to mention how incredibly generous the make-up ladies were to me!  They always sent a GWP my way and I used to get invited to the launch parties for the latest perfume or cosmetic item they were promoting.  That is one job perk I truly miss!

I was pleasantly surprised to see in the April issue of Allure, an article on shopping at make-up counters, plus photos with captions on how cosmetic counters are displayed.  I’ve scanned page 195 below:

I would like to send a big shout out to all the ladies (and gents) that work in cosmetic retail.  It looks like such a glammy job to the outsider when in actuality it can be quiet demanding!
