Other ways to make money with makeup

Myshowcase is a great way to make money with makeup, but there are other ways to make money if you don’t want to commit.

For example, if you have a blog or a website, you could make money by joining an affiliate site and linking to makeup products from your articles and posts (although your readers won’t appreciate it if you bombard them with links, so choose your products carefully.)

You could also make videos and become a vlogger (that’s video blogger for those not in the know), reviewing makeup products. It’s not easy to cut it as a vlogger but once you start building a bit of traffic you’ll be able to monetise your videos and you might be able to bag some freebies from companies who want you to review their products.

Oh, and speaking of freebies, we recommend you keep an eye on Toluna as they often have beauty goods which they offer as test products. Simply sign-up for free and you’ll be able to get some makeup goodies to test when Toluna offer them.
