First of all, let me tell you about myself

I am a serial entrepreneur and owner of I personally have several clothing stores, blogs and a makeup store. I am going to share with you my exact strategy on creating successful online cosmetics businesses.

Find your niche

Finding a niche is very important. You don’t want to be just another store selling everything. Instead pick a very specific niche such as Korean cosmetics, Organic cosmetics, Eco deodorants, Eco nail polishes, Palettes.

When you narrow down your niche, you have a high chance of becoming an authority, a go-to store for the needs of that specific group of people.

For example, Deck of Scarlet focuses on all-in-one palettes for a specific look. They are extremely popular among busy women who don’t have time or energy shop for all the makeup you need to replicate famous Youtube celebrities. And of course, quality is superb. So pick your niche wisely. If you don’t know what niche to pick, feel free to get in touch with me at and we will help you to do it.

Get a supplier…or a dropshipper

The success of your store depends on the high quality cosmetics that you are going to sell. You need to have a reliable supplier or a dropshipper. I personally like these guys – – I buy all my cosmetics there and use them as suppliers for my store.

If you can’t afford buying stuff in bulk, you can always look for a dropshipper. Simply google Korean cosmetics dropshipping and you will find a ton of offers. The good thing about dropshipping is that you don’t need to have a stock. And you can literally start your online cosmetics store for free.
