Proven Anti-Aging Methods



Here at UnitWise, we consider every aspect of the beauty consulting world to help you become the best director you can be, especially when it comes to sales and managing your unit. One of the often overlooked aspects of being a director is having healthy skin.

You could be in the beauty consulting business for years! Heck, it could even become a lifelong career, so it’s important to prevent aging. If you look flawless in your beauty products, then more customers will be more tempted to buy, in order to look their best too.

Plus, you aren’t just selling make up, you’re selling skin care products. If your skin has a youthful glow then it proves the success of your products. Keep your skin looking it’s best with the following tips.

Be Sure To Rest

Your skin works as hard as you do, so it will need a break sometimes too! Be sure to unwind every evening. Stress causes your skin to flare up and can cause breakouts, which lead to permanent scarring.

Unwind with a little meditation, or by watching an episode of your favorite guilty pleasure reality TV show. Yes, even the real housewives! We won’t judge, we just want you to relax. Relaxing will lead to better sleep, which is important because damaged skin cells get repaired while you get your beauty rest. Also, skin rehydrates when you sleep and looks firm and colorful as a result.

Quit Smoking

Smoking puts your skin on the fast track to premature aging. It’s common for smokers to look much older than they actually are. Daily smoking leads to drooping, flabby skin, crow's feet, and lines around the mouth, because smoking breaks down the collagen in your skin.

It also restricts blood vessels leading to discoloration, so oxygen can’t get to your skin cells, and slows down the skin repair and healing process. When the skin repairing process is hindered discoloration and scars take longer to heal.

Avoid Sun Burns

The sun may feel like your friend with its bright, cheery attitude and warm rays that reach down to give you a warm hug on a chilly day, but in reality the sun can be your skin’s worst enemy. When ancient greeks avoided the sun to preserve a youthful appearance, they were on to something.

Sunlight causes discoloration, which leads to darker spots on the skin. Damaging UV rays also lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. Plus, the sun dries your skin out, which leads to cracks, and dark bags under the eyes.

When you’re going to be outside for a while, go prepared with a large hat to shade your face. Also, be sure to apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every two hours.

Get Your Diet On Track

Sugar, which can seem irresistible, damages skin at an alarming rate. Sugar attaches itself to collagen and weighs it down, causing skin to sag. Wrinkles can be caused by sugar, because it sucks the moisture out of skin cells, leaving your skin dry and brittle. Sugar also causes break outs and inflames the skin, making it difficult for your body to repair it.

Try swapping your dessert with some fruit or drinking green tea instead of sugary coffee. The antioxidants in fruit and tea prevent aging, while calming and firming skin. Antioxidants also repair sun damage, scars, and make wrinkles less visible.

Vitamin C found in citrus fruits, strawberries, broccoli and more reduces stress and is even believed to prevent sun damage. Vitamin C actually plays a major role in producing collagen, which firms your skin.

Work Those Sales While Looking Your Best

With a few simple lifestyle changes you can take years off of your face, so you’ll have a youthful glow while selling your products. Not only will looking your best help you hook more sales, it will also boost your confidence and you might push for bigger sales as a result.

Also, by using UnitWise, the all in one business management program designed for independent beauty consultants and directors you’ll save time and prevent stress, leaving you with more time to relax and practice good anti-aging habits.

How to Throw a Successful Makeup Party



Stay calm, your first makeup party is coming up, but you got this. Especially if you’re using the UnitWise and MyUnitBuzz to schedule your event and to keep track of RSVPs! Throwing parties is one of the best ways to get new clients as well as repeat customers. Follow the steps below to have a successful party that’s full of sales.

Plan Your Party In Advance

Schedule your party for an evening that won’t have any conflicting events. Avoid cancelling or rescheduling at all costs. People get frustrated when events are moved, and often decide to not show up.

Give your party a relevant theme to make it interesting. For example, facials to brighten your skin for the fourth of July, or makeovers even Cupid can’t resist for Valentine's day.

Make sure your party is during a time when your prospective clients have the most availability. During the day most of your guests have to work, so it's better to schedule events in the evening. Also, if your guests have children consider starting your event a little later to give them time to give their kids dinner and put them to bed.

Invite a small group of people, so you can spend enough time with each client. By answering their questions and showing them which products fit their individual needs they’ll be more likely to buy. Not everyone invited will show up, when inviting a group of 15 people expect 6 to 8 guests to show up.

Make your invitations irresistible. Find a creative template online to give your invitations a unique and memorable look. Add a free sample or coupon to each one before sending them out. The goal is to make your invitations so fun and exciting that ‘no’ isn’t an option!

Be Prepared With The Right Equipment

Keep up with your RSVPs to know how many people to expect. This way you’ll bring the right amount of goodies for everyone.

Set up the room with a table for everyone to sit at together, so your guests will pay attention during your presentation and demonstrations.

Don’t forget to bring a few lamps to brighten up the room. If the area is too dark your party guests won’t be able to see how good they look with your products on.

Most of your guests will arrive with their make up from the day still in tact, so be sure to provide everyone with moist make up wipes so they can quickly clean their faces before their facial or makeover.

Serve orderves and appetizers for your guests to nibble on. Keep the food light and simple so the room will stay engaged instead of weighed down with a meal. If someone wants to bring something, let them! When your guests bring their own comfort food or favorite drink they’ll feel much more relaxed.

Put Your Game Face On

If you’re nervous about throwing your party practice with your friends and family members first. This way you’ll gain experience with applying facials and makeup. Also, your loved ones will provide you with valuable feedback.

Remember to be in the right mindset. Be confident, energetic, and social to fill the room with positive energy. Don’t be monotone or sales oriented, because the party could end up feeling more like a business meeting as a result.

There’s always that one person who says they don’t wear a lot of make up and won’t buy anything. Don’t let them phase you! Show them what they can do quickly with minimal makeup or show them skin care products. As a strong, independent beauty consultant you can handle any challenge!

Makeup parties are social events with a cheery yet relaxed flow. Make your guests feel at home by inviting them to hang out and socialize after their facials. If they feel rushed they’ll be less likely to buy.

Get Your Party Started

Don’t feel nervous about throwing your makeup party, get excited! These events are fun social gatherings as well as a source for direct sales. By using UnitWise and MyUnitBuzz you’ll be able to organize your party, send out invitations, and handle RSVPs. You’ll have everything you need for a successful markup party.

Stop! You're ruining your skin with these bad habits!



By studying the world of beauty consulting, we the heroes at UnitWise have come to a groundbreaking conclusion. We’ve realized that the better your skin looks the more sales you get. You could be in the business for years, so you’ll need your youthful, glowing complexion to last! Save the beauty of skin by quitting the following bad habits.

Stop Neglecting UV Protection

Sometimes the sun can be your worst enemy because it sends harmful UV rays down to Earth that will dry out and age your skin. Harmful UV rays can kill the elasticity in your skin cells, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. They also can cause freckles, discoloration, and skin cancer!

Tanning beds are even worse than the sun! Fight your urges to lay in what effectively are cancer boxes. When exposing yourself to up close UV rays that are 10 to 15 percent stronger than the sun’s you’re voluntarily giving your skin wrinkles and sunspots. Also, most importantly, tanning beds can cause melanoma, the most dangerous and most skin disfiguring type of skin cancer.

When you’re spending at least two hours or more outdoors remember to use a sunscreen with an SPF of 36 or higher, and reapply it every two hours.

If you need a tan, don’t go to the salon. Try a spray tan or natural means of tanning with the use of sunscreen outdoors.

Kick That Poor Diet

Sugar is one of your face’s most evil enemies. Most people get seduced by sugary treats, that make them feel warm inside, while ignoring the bad effects sugar has on their body. Sugar breaks down the elastin and collagen in your skin, causing wrinkles and sagging. Sugar also inflames the skin and leads to breakouts which can leave scars for years. Try swapping out your guilty pleasure treats with fruit to fill your skin with nutrients.

Get hydrated! Seriously, add more water during your daily routine. Coffee and other caffeinated beverages are packed with sugar and can dehydrate you. Without enough water skin become, dry, wrinkly, and flakey! Water makes your skin look full and firm and gives it a natural glow. Infact, water is so great at helping us look our best that it's the skin treatment that celebrities swear by.

Ease Up On Tobacco And Alcohol

Smoking is bad, period! It displaces oxygen in your skin, leaving it brittle and dry. It also slows down your blood flow which causes your skin to look discolored and saggy. The chemicals in cigarettes deplete your body of important nutrients like vitamin C, that plays a major role in repairing your skin. Without enough vitamin C your body can’t stop scars and wrinkles from setting in. Nonsmokers should also be weary of coming into contact with second hand smoke, because it causes the same damage.

Alcohol doesn’t have to be given up completely, just consumed in moderation. Keep in mind that alcohol dries out skin, leading to flakiness and wrinkles. Alcohol also causes the blood vessels in your face to swell, causing redness around your nose and eyes! If the blood vessels around your eyes burst due to the swelling you’ll have long lasting red spots that are really difficult to get rid of!

Take Care Of Your Body

At the end of the day you might be exhausted, with hardly enough energy to lay on the couch. We’ve all been there! However, working out, even as little as taking a brisk 30 minute walk around the neighborhood increases your circulation to make your skin look firm with a radiant glow. Start off small and see what you can do to get your blood pumping during the day.

Get enough sleep! Getting less than 7 to 8 hours a night can leave your skin, saggy, and discolored with dark circles under your eyes. By not getting enough sleep on a regular bases the sagginess of your skin could become permanent. Get your beauty rest to keep your vibrant complexion.

Remove your makeup at night! It may seem tempting just to crawl right into bed, but at least use a moist towelette to clean your face first. Leaving makeup on all night traps dirt, pollution, and dead skin on your face. This will cause your face to become irritated and break out!

Remember, it's important not to squeeze pimples or blemishes, because doing so will spread bacteria into your skin, leading to more pimples.

Be Forever Young

Here at UnitWise we want you to be the best beauty consultant you can be. We take everything into account from your sales pitches to professional appearance to make sure you’ll become the the leader of makeup and skincare product sales. Keep your skin looking firm, young, and beautiful by simply kicking a few bad habits.

Do You Have What it Takes to be a Successful Beauty Consultant?



Are you considering joining the world of beauty consultants by selling your own inventory of makeup and skincare products? If you are, we can see why. A few of us at UnitWise may have our own fantasies of driving off into the sunset in a pink cadillac with the top down, while wearing an official red jacket.

However, becoming a beauty consultant is a serious choice. Be sure to put a lot of research into your decision, then sleep on it. To help your decision process along, we compiled a list of traits found in the nation’s most successful beauty consultants.

A Great Smile

When thinking about a sales pitch a smile may not come to mind, but a friendly smile can make a deal. When meeting potential clients, be sure to flash them a positive, yet friendly smile. Practice your smile a few times in the mirror to get it perfect.

Social Confidence

Successful beauty consultants are go getters. They put on a brave, yet friendly face to host parties and meet new people. NSDs and directors meet multiple prospective clients a day simply by approaching them. Some people are so social that they could talk to a rock for hours, while others avoid approaching strangers at all costs. Where do you fall on the spectrum? Can you strike up a conversation with multiple strangers?

The Ability To Roll With The Punches

No, no...no, no, NO! Did that sentence drive you crazy? We hope not! But on a serious note consultants get told ‘no’ a lot. Can you roll with rejection and keep trying? Never take a no personally, even the best are shot down. The key is to dust yourself off and get back on the horse.

No Hesitating When Asking For Help

Don’t be afraid to ask your NSD or director for help. They want you to succeed and will always have time to answer your questions. Even the top dogs started from the bottom, and they had lots of questions! Remember, as a beauty consultant you’re part of a team!

They Aren’t Sales Oriented

While not being sales oriented seems to contradict selling skin care products, the best results are often found when consultants are open and friendly. Instead of pushing for the sale teach your clients about your products and answer any questions that they have. Take your time and be patient, a client that learns more about your product is more likely to buy.

They’re Excellent At Multitasking

Beauty consultants are extremely busy, but that doesn’t stop them. They efficiently balance meetings, parties, and their inventory without breaking a sweat. Making quick decisions and prioritizing which tasks are most important on a daily basis play major roles in being a successful beauty consultant.

They ALL Cut Loose

Being a beauty consultant can be stressful and time consuming, but along the way you’ll make lifetime friends with local directors and unit members who love what they do. Events and seminars bring consultants together to celebrate their success and boogie down!

So, Is The Beauty Consultant Life For You?

Are you determined and confident? Are you willing to put yourself out there? Do you want to work hard and play harder? If so then it sounds like beauty consultant life could be for you. Just be sure not to forget about us, the heroes at UnitWise when you’re zooming around town in that pink cadillac.

You're A Beauty Consultant, Don't Look Tired



For whatever reasons the sandman works in mysterious ways. Sometimes you have a deep sleep that’s drool on the pillow good, but other times you roll around, frustrated for hours. You may not think anyone will notice if you’re tired, but in reality your skin can give it away!

As a beauty consultant working on the frontlines at parties and events, it’s important to look your best in order to get sales and maintain a professional appearance.

We at UnitWise and MyUnitBuzz can’t promise you a full 8 hours of sleep for perfect, refreshed skin, but we can tell you how to cover up the fact that you’re exhausted.

Let’s Start By Waking Up

Splashing cold water on your face, or turning your shower water to cold may seem like a frightening idea, but the cold water will actually reduce inflammation, tighten your skin, and restore color.

Using a moisturizer with caffeine will perk up your skin, and you can use a primer to give your skin a nice tan glow.

Then Let's Fix Your Hair

Incase you’re too busy traveling to conferences like seminar and can’t wash your hair, we have the secrets for making your hair look clean and lively without showering

First, fight your instincts. When you’re short on time you may just wanna pull your hair back in a ponytail and forget about it. However, when you wear your hair down it will take the attention away from tired, puffy eyes. Also, parting your hair on the opposite side or wearing braids will cover up grease.

Fight hair grease by blow drying your roots or by applying some dry shampoo, that will give your hair a nice scent. Also, baby powder is often used to soak up grease.

Fight frizz with a leave in conditioner to moisturize your hair and to give it a sleek shine.

Last, but not least, add some texture spray to your hair. It will lift flat, tired hair and bring it back to life!

Next, We’ll Get Those Eyes Sparkling

When you’re tired your eyes are a dead giveaway. If you know ahead of time that you won’t be getting much sleep, prep your eyes with a hydrating eye cream to prevent the skin around them from drying out and puffing during the night. Applying eye cream will also help in the morning.

Allergies and sleep deprivation are both culprits that cause red eyes! Clear them up by using daily nasal sprays or allergy pills. To simply get rid of redness apply one or two eyedrops to each eye.

If you do wake up with puffy eyes, stay calm, there are many solutions to instantly de-puff them. The most common solution is to take two cold spoons out of the freezer and place them under your eyes for about 10 minutes, during this process the blood vessels around your eyes will become uninflamed and discoloration will dissipate.

Other common items for depuffing eyes include cool cucumber slices, cold tea bags, frozen bags of peas, and potatoes slices...that’s right, potato slices.

Also, you can get an eye roller and keep it in the fridge. Bust it out when you need to roll eyebags away! Most eye rollers have a soothing mineral gel that get rid of dark circles under the eyes.

You can always cover up dark circles around your eyes with a yellow based foundation. However, when it comes to eye make up and you’re tired, less is more. Avoid the heavy eye shadows and stick to an all natural look.

Curl your eyelashes and add volumizing mascara to make you eyes look more open. As a result you’ll appear bright eyed and bushy tailed!

Bonus Tips!

  • Start your day with a citrus fruit to wake up and get energized. 
  • Wear light pink to coral shades of lipstick to brighten your face. 
  • Wear bright colors to fill the room with energy.
  • Stay hydrated! Water keeps your skin looking firm and full and prevents eye bags and discoloration from forming. 
  • Take a walk when you wake up to get your blood pumping and to return color to your skin.
  • Keep that beautiful smile on. A nice bright smile will spread positive energy to the entire room. 

Get Those Sales

You’re a confident consultant, and you’ll get those sales—especially while looking your best. By being your own makeup artist, no one will know whether you got 3 hours or 8 hours of sleep, because you’ll have a healthy, natural glow at all times.

What are you makeup tricks for looking less tired? Be sure to share them with us!

Essential Items To Waterproof Your Poolside Look




Summer brings many opportunities to hang out by the water. You may get invited to the pool, lake, or beach to soak up some rays, but what happens when you want to get in the water?

Will your beautiful makeup wash away? Will you shy away from the water to keep your makeup looking perfect?

There’s no need to fear getting in the water with Mary Kay’s line of waterproof makeup that will keep your flawless look in tact all day, no matter what activities come your way. 

First, Start with Your Foundation

After putting on some tinted sunscreen, head to the beach to give yourself a natural glow, and to cover any blemishes. You’ll be protected from the sun while looking your best with Mary Kay® Tinted Moisturizer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20.

Then Bring on the Eye Makeup

We’ve all seen someone jump in the pool and come up looking like a sea monster—black eye makeup streaming all down their face.

The thought of bleeding eye makeup might scare you away from wearing it poolside, but dark, smokey eyes are in right now. Don’t leave the mascara and eyeliner behind. Simply use the waterproof formulas!

After you applying your eyeshadow for a hot summer look, add a little Mary Kay® Eye Primer. The primer is a smooth gloss to apply over your eye makeup to make it waterproof and smudge resistant.

Don’t dive in and find yourself with empty, wild brows! Use a waterproof eyebrow filler, then cover your eyebrows with brow gel to keep them looking full and shapely.

Finally, on to the Lips

Having beautiful lips is an important part of the perfect summer look. Keep in mind that while in the sun a more neutral or soft color looks best. Sometimes all you need is a little shine, so check out Mary Kay® Sun Care Lip Protector Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15. It will protect your lips from the sun with a subtle gloss, and it can be used under lipstick and lipgloss.

Also, there are a variety of waterproof lip liners that glide on with a smooth finish for defined lips, even if you find yourself taking a dip in the ocean.

Mary Kay Directors: Here's the Business Tool You Are Missing



We have an important question for Mary Kay NSD’s and directors. How do you stay connected with your unit? Do you have a list of your units contact information written down somewhere? When sending group text messages does adding them one by one take a long time?

That makes sending your unit a simple message seem impossible. Simplify communicating with your Mary Kay unit by with the MyUnitBuzz app.

What is the MyUnitBuzz app?

MyUnitBuzz is an app designed for smartphones and tablets that makes communicating with your Mary Kay unit easier. With this app you can assign all of your unit members to a group and send them texts or photos from events in the blink of an eye. Mary Kay directors can also use this app to send out reminders about upcoming meetings and other important events.

You can even give your unit the power to find answers on their own, by uploading important documents and training materials that they can access at anytime. This is great for when you’re in an important meeting and can’t respond to their questions right away.

I have UnitWise, does MyUnitBuzz cost extra?

Great news! If you’re a UnitWise member with the Director Complete or Consultant Complete plan then you already have access to the app for free! That’s right, completely free!

UnitWise members can instantly get started with MyUnitBuzz because their account will automatically sync with the app as soon as it’s downloaded.

If you aren’t a UnitWise member or you don’t have the Director or Consultant Complete plans you can still download the app for $2.95.

What does Mary Kay get out of this?

While UnitWise and MyUnitBuzz aren’t affiliated with Mary Kay, they are designed to make it easier for NSDs and Directors to manage their units and grow their businesses.
