1. A Salesperson
When shopping for beauty products in a brick-and-mortar beauty stores people have a lot of questions and doubts but still they would rather avoid asking a salesperson. Though most of the salespeople are usually well-trained and their job is to help consumers when they want to get some information. Salespeople are obligated to know what product (foundation, powder, blush, lipstick, etc.) can be applied to the particular face skin complexion and type of skin. In the case, when asking the salesperson is still intimidating for you, bring a friend to help you to buy an appropriate beauty product who may also help to determine the type of your skin and its complexion or seek for the advice in cosmetician. Also, when shopping online ask your friend for an advice because there are many pitfalls in online shopping concerning shipping, sales, etc.
