This post is about my current job as counter manager for YSL, Myer. I've had a lot of questions about it and what the process I went through, so here is the two most asked questions for those who were wondering.
How did you apply?
I actually didn't apply for any position because I was still working at W Cosmetics at that time (July). I had a really rough time there and an friend refereed me in Myer. I do recommend checking on seek or the Myer website though to see what job positions are available.
What was the process?
Shortly after, I was called up the next day or so for an interview. I went in not knowing what brand I wanted to work for nor knowing what positions were open. About two days later I was called again for an interview to meet the Area Manager of YSL. After that interview, I was scheduled for an makeup trial that same following week. My makeup trial was successful and yea…I got it :)
I had a one day training and got to meet other YSL BA's around Queensland. The training was great and we were all given products to create our YSL Signature Looks.
- BABY DOLL KISS & BLUSH #1
Bright pink lips
- Baby Doll Kiss and Blush #8
This is the colour we use for our cheeks. It is a two in one product, a lip and a cheek stain. Simply dab a few dots on the checks and use a foundation brush to blend in.
- COUTURE PALETTE #1
Eyeshadow palette to create our Parisian Eyes
- Touche E'lat #2
This is a limited edition print
- La Laque Couture #10 Fuchsia
Received my YSL Pin
We had an early morning meeting while breakfast was being provided. Quick iPhone selfie before I left to the station
YSL ROAD SHOW
YSL hosted a night were we all had champagne and food, discussing the business and the new launches of products. I am so excited with the new products and can't wait to get my hands on them!
Ysl is launching our newest fragrance, Black Opium Eau de toilette. We all had a chance to smell the fragrance and I think I like it more than the original! This is the ad of the fragrance from the YSL Instagram @yslbeauty
At the end of the night, we all received gifts from YSL! Yayy
We all received...
- A bottle of the original Black Opium fragrance.
- One of the newest lip plumping glossy stain product
- and the Blur primer!
- BLACK OPIUM EAU DE PARFUM SPRAY
This fragrance has notes of black coffee, Jasmine and Vanilla.
- VERNIS À LÈVRES GLOSSY STAIN - PLUMP UP
This lip products contains hyaluronic acid, which gives the most beautiful effect of hydrating & shine to the lips. I always use this product on customers because it gives an instant push up effect. This product only comes in one shade, which is extremely universal to wear on it's own or under/over any lipsticks.
- TOUCHE ÉCLAT BLUR PRIMER
This primer has tiny gold flecks which gives a boost of radiance to the skin. I love how it has an instant blur effects, giving you the perfect smooth canvas.
That's it for now about my adventures as YSL Counter Manager. I will start doing reviews on the new products when they come out :)
