WARNING! 12 Things You Should Know Before Joining Mary Kay

Mary Kay makeup brush and cosmetics

Before pursuing a career in the Mary Kay industry, there are a couple of things—about twelve of them—that you need to know!


We promise you’ll like what you’re about to hear!

#1 The Mary Kay Way

Mary Kay Ash founded her company on the principle of faith first, family second, and career third.

Mary Kay Ash adamantly believed in this golden principle, and for almost 50 years now it has been followed throughout her company.

Pretty amazing, right? Over 50 years following the same guiding voice! 

#2 Safety is Always First Priority

When it comes to makeup and skincare, Mary Kay has always been top of the line—mostly because of the tireless safety testing the company performs.

Mary Kay does an average of about 300,000 tests on products every year to ensure safety.

Be prepared when you work with Mary Kay to work with the best makeup line out there.

#3 Your Earnings as an Independent Beauty Consultant

The first thing most people think about when starting a new career is their personal success.

Luckily for you, your possibilities are endless with Mary Kay.

What you put into your career is what you’ll get out of it when it comes to this company.

What other company can tell you that you have the ability to make as much money as you want to?

#4 Mary Kay is Global

Mary Kay’s ethics and quality of products have allowed it to be sold in over 35 countries worldwide.

In almost all the Americas and even into Asia, Mary Kay has left a pink footprint all over the map.

#5 The Group You’re Joining

Prepare to be welcomed into the Mary Kay family.

And with over 3.5 million Independent Beauty Consultants, 39,000 Directors, and 600 NSDs, it’s a rather larger family.

But all the same, you’ll always be surrounded by women who support you and your accomplishments.

#6 The Work Ethic You Need

Nothing in life comes easy.

As Mary Kay Ash once said, “God feeds the birds, but he doesn’t throw it into their nest.”

When you join Mary Kay, it will be fun and exciting, but remember you do have to work for it.

Put in a little bit of effort and you’ll be amazed at where success will take you—maybe even in a pink Cadillac.

#7 It’s Not Just About the Makeup

Sure, Mary Kay is known for its premium makeup lines, but the company is much more than that.

Mary Kay founded the MK Ash Charitable Foundation, donating money to help fight women’s cancer, as well as launching campaigns against domestic violence.

When you become a part of Mary Kay, you become part of a larger network of people all working towards something greater.

Take this, for example, the Mary Kay company logged about 500,000 volunteer hours during their Global Month of Service.

#8 Your Unit will be Like a Family

When you join Mary Kay, you usually do so under the guidance of a Director—a person who once started where you were.

Your Unit will be your family, your biggest supporters, and your source of encouragement. Depend on them!

#9 Pink Cars Rule

The pink Cadillac is synonymous with the Mary Kay company.

Everyone who joins wants to one day drive in a nice, shiny pink Cadillac. And you can!

What other company out there gives you a pink car that’s completely paid off for a whole year?

#10 The Popularity of the Bee

If you did any research on Mary Kay, you would know that the bumblebee is a pretty integral part of the company.

And before you start working as an independent beauty consultant, you should know why.

Mary Kay Ash once said that “Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know it, so it goes on flying anyways.”

Just like the bee, you too can do the impossible as long as you believe you can. 

#11 UnitWise
