Before you start selling makeup you should know that some websites or apps ask you to leave your makeup unopened, although in others not as long as it is not used in excess.

The state of the makeup must be detailed to be legal with the client.

For all these reasons I give you this general advice for when you make sale of used makeup by Internet:

- Have patience while selling until the time comes to be bought.

- Store your makeup in a place without humidity and keep it correctly until you buy it.

- Take care of the wrappings and packaging when you bring the product to avoid breakage.

- Describes the state of the product in a complete way including until its expiration date.

- Never sell expired makeup.

- Never leave the sales platform when you make a payment or give your personal data even if the customer asks for it.

- Sell on as many platforms as possible to increase your opportunities.

- Take good pictures.

Webs and Apps Where to sell used makeup

So in addition to the specific pages to sell used makeup we will only see those more generalist sale of second-hand fashion and in each of the options you can see where in the world you can use that APP or web sale of used products:

  • Vinted

    If you want to sell used makeup in Spain, Luxembourg, France, Belgium, United Kingdom or United States, Vinted is your app. The best option to sell used makeup on the Internet because it has no sales commissions and shipping costs are economic and paid by the buyer.

    The downside of selling at Vinted is that because of hygiene requirements you cannot sell makeup that has been used, if not bought and unused. This is the only requirement of the app.

    In case you live in the United States or Canada Poshmark is ideal as it is the most famous second hand fashion application. It is also a place to sell used makeup. In this app we have a $2.95 commission for sales under $15 and 20% when the product is priced over $15.

  • Beautiers

    Hidden in the darkest corners of the Internet we find Beautiers a website for selling used makeup in Spain.

    As Beautiers explains it is a marketplace where we can upload our own ad with our makeup for sale, and have our gallery of free products ready for you to buy from us. It has a section of Bloggers and Youtubers so you can quickly find your references selling their makeup.

    It was created by Marta Frutos, Professional Makeup Artist and YouTuber. This website is the method by which you can pay us with Visa, Paypal, American Express or Mastercard. And they will pay us by Paypal. We are going to go with the bad news, although if we sell enough the same is not so bad.

    The commission that the platform gets for each of your sales is 12% of the amount of the product! The shipping is done by the seller, so if you use the post office the shipping can be around 3 or 4 euros. On the other hand, the shipping costs can never be inflated and can be much higher than the price of the product.

  • Beautify

    Now we have to analyze your community to sell and buy makeup between individuals within Spain. Where to create your store profile is free. Like the previous platform you just have to add your ad with your used makeup.

    Customers pay the shipping costs that are predefined by the platform and you must select them. They work with the shipping company Correos. Each product added by the buyer will increase the shipping cost.

    When you have sent the order by mail you must add the tracking number to the platform.

    We are happy because this web has no sales commission.

  • Glambot

    This website only works for United States, although they open the possibility for other countries to be included in the sale by contacting.

    Glambot is not an advertising website but a company to which you send your makeup and they sell it for you.

    The brands of makeup that you can sell are limited to a list that you can find on the web. The makeup case must be in perfect or very good condition.

    The earnings per product are between 50 cents and two euros approximately. On their website you have a profit estimator.
