Make-up for sure. I tried doing freelance,made business cards and put a portfolio together, but my town is so small no one is going to pay to have their make-up done :/

Well I'm already a beauty editor so that's a bit of a no brainer on my part! However I have always been fascinated by makeup artistry. It looks like such a fun job. Maybe a second career path somewhere down the road? =)

I'd rather do PR -- product placement, specialty store strategy, celebrity gifting. I'm getting my MBA as we speak and building up my contact database of all the big names.

Since I work in publishing now, you’d think I’d go straight for beauty editor, but no. There’s a bit too much hob-nobbing for me. I’d be an esthetician instead. It’s more one-on-one, and since I’ve struggled with skin issues for years, it could be really rewarding to help people look better through better skincare and self-care.

Beauty or Fashion Editor has always been my dream job since the age of 6...probably won't get there but one can hope/dream :(

Beauty editors have the best job. They get make-up samples and write about what best products.

I am currently a graphic design major in college, so my dream job would be working as a beauty product package designer, or at least creating branding for it. that'd be great to me.
