Title:Read My Lips
Genre: To be determined
People might assume that women "put on their face", so to speak, for just about everything they do. By face, I mean make-up. Cosmetics have always been a major role for women everywhere, and they won't be going anywhere anytime soon. Its constantly adapted to fit the times, but yet it seems people feel that women use cosmetics simply for the image of them.
I would argue that if cosmetic productions can adapt to fit the times, than why can't perception of why cosmetics are used also change. Women use make-up for a variety of reasons. Some work in professions where it is a necessity for them to look their best, some use it still, to enhance their image, some just to make themselves feel important, and some just out of habit.
I complied research for this into a survey for my own cosmetics line Read my Lips Cosmetics incorporate,. I wanted to hear from my consumers more than what shades of color they wanted in a product. I wanted to compile a background as to why my consumers used my product over other products, if they would continue to use my product, why they used cosmetics in general, and if they used a certain style or shade of color for certain moods.
For an example, I always wore red lipstick to board meetings. Why red? Because I hate Red Lipstick, I think it shows my pores more than say pink, and i'm also not particularly keen on board meetings. So I associated two things i dislike into working together to put me in a bad mood. So every board meeting equals my wearing red lipstick.
I conducted the survey to launch my new product line, developed to provide women with satisfaction that they look good, no matter what they have to endure through the day. Of course no amount of marketing could make everybody believe this, but it is with good intentions that the line was made. Its a start to ending the red lipstick in board meetings, daring women to break their own norms as well.
