Mark cosmetics representatives took over the Hughes Trigg commons Wednesday to demonstrate their products and recruit new representatives for the growing cosmetics brand.

Music pumped through the commons and girls gathered around several tables that were covered in cosmetics, accessories, clothes, and skin care products.

Students came for free makeovers and learned more about how they could earn money by selling the products.

Sophomore Heather Gram came for a free makeover and ended up signing up to sell the product.

“It’s an easy way to make money,” Gram said. “Plus I get a really great discount.”

During the two hour event hosted by the program council, Mark offered a special for students who signed up to sell the cosmetics. For a one time fee of twenty dollars, students received eighty dollars worth of products and a necklace designed by Mark spokesperson and star of MTV’s The Hills, Lauren Conrad.

“SMU is one of thirty universities involved in the program, and the products are currently sold in the school book store,” SMU Program Council president Brittani Arrington said.

The Mark line is a branch of Avon cosmetics. In addition to cosmetics, they also sell clothing, skin care products, fragrances, and accessories.

Students that sign up to sell the products get a 40 percent discount on all merchandise and receive 40 percent commission on everything they sell and are not required to meet a quota. In addition, they also receive a free online e-boutique that they can link to their Facebook accounts.

“Some students earn about one hundred dollars per week with little effort,” said Mark regional manager Nicole Goulet. “Tonight two students are having a party at their sorority house and the girls could easily earn a thousand dollars.”

“I started participating in the program because it’s a great discount and a great product,” said Arrington. “Plus, I make money and don’t really have to do anything.”
