If you’ve never heard of social media I’d be very confused as to why you’re here and also how you’re here while circumnavigating the internet and haven’t glimpsed any social media websites. Social media is one of the greatest influences in the modern world as we know it today. It’s a place for people come together, talk, share, and form communities. It’s a wonderful age but social media also has another facet that’s developed fantastically over the years alongside the platform as a whole.

The reach of these platforms has had a drastic effect on the makeup industry as a whole. Though not the only place where social media has had its effects makeup is one of the industries where the growth has been most felt. There’s the obvious fact that makeup channels and pages let creators show their makeup and beauty regimes that they personally use. Of course companies are eager to jump on those opportunities to sell you the perfect makeup primer for you. In a lot of cases these popular beauty gurus are approached by makeup companies in order to use their products and advertise their effectiveness in order to of course reach their demographic. There’s also the instances where these creators might decide to try and make their own brand and break into the industry. Or someone from their communities might see the success of the industry and decide that it’s an industry worth entering themselves.

The expansion of the industry fosters an increase in the quality of products that go around the industry as well. The fact that so many people have decided to invest within the makeup industry means that there’s fiercer competition to get your product recognized so it needs to be of amazing quality in order to get that recognition. The proper use of social media, the right product, and the marketing know-how to actually sell your product are the things proving absolutely necessary to keep up in the modern makeup industry.
