What are the chances of getting hired at a M.A.C. Cosmetics counter?
I had a friend who went from Sephora’s Beauty to the Mac Counter. Having an artistic background is great so you know about color schemes and things like that, but they look for experience as well. I suggest you make a portfolio and keep applying!! Im sure they will have you do a face test if you get the interview. Also, while your applying for the job, you should get another job at a makeup counter as practice and experience! That should help out too. From what I heard its very hard getting a job based upon an artistic background only. You sound like a great candidate, but go get a practice job and keep going forward! You dont need to know MAC products to get the job! Who knows every product?! You should be familiar with the basics and have some knowledge of the company. They will periodically put you through training and all types of classes to keep you updated. Besides, you learn as you start and thats where you get the most experience, which is hands on.
