I have a few people in my life who use makeup and beauty products and they are pretty loyal to their brand or shade. A particular shade or feel of a certain makeup brand they like that they can’t find with other brands. This helps to build brand loyalty and allow you to target them to get them coming back for the next new product or technique.

What I have listed here are not the only beauty and makeup affiliate programs you could use. There are many of them out there. But these beauty affiliate programs are the most popular makeup companies with the best commissions. Best commissions and popular makeup companies equals more sells and more income for you.

    Hi, 

    Thank you for the useful information in regard to the affiliate programs.  While I don’t deal with makeup, my niche is targeted more toward skin care, mainly for guys.

    I do use the affiliate programs through Rakuten and through CJ; I am a member of the Color Science program because I like their sunscreens (mineral sunscreens, specifically) because they are good quality and can help to prevent UV damage in both men and women, leading to better skin overall and less wrinkles, etc.

    It seems strange that e.l.f. Cosmetics is a well renowned makeup brand all over the globe and I am only hearing it for the first time. I would need to widen my rate of exposure.. Sigma beauty and BH Cosmetics on the other hand have benefitted me. Although I was not able to make much as I had other engagements. Thank you for this post

    Thanks for this review. Since Avon has a variety of products I can promote as an affiliate, I’m already considering promoting skin care products. I will love to promote both the male and female skin care products. I love good skin and I know that when I passionately promote them, I will make good sales. I’m happy I got to know about this.
