Define your real women audience.

Makeup is a business that serves women, but that doesn't mean your business is for all women, You must have a well targeted and define market. Know your customers, who they are, what they want, where they are and what they earn.  For instance, you can target working class women between the age of 30 - 45 or older folks above 50 who are looking for makeup artists that will help look younger and ageless.  Also, you can even serve hungry folks that are want to learn makeup and build a career in the beauty industry.  Where are these audience? most of them hang out on Facebook, spend more time chatting with friends and colleague.

Establish your own community of target audience.

One easy strategy to get started faster is to create an online community where your real target audience goes to, to find answers to their makeup questions. For instance, you can create your own Facebook fan page which shouldn't take you more than five (5) minutes, and use a brand name to describe it.  Names like Br MakeUp, Sleek Makeup, Prerite Make Up etc, are easy to remember, catchy and brandable. On your community, share uncommon makeup tips your targeted market will find useful and relevant. The easiest way to fast track your makeup community membership growth is to boost your post with $5 which will likely reach 2500 - 3000 women folks ( that are within your targeted market) on Facebook.
