Prior to Class Time—Arrive BEFORE the scheduled time
Arrive at her door with one bag. Give her a sincere complement and find out where you will be
setting up. Go to the car for your other bag(s). Be careful not to bring in too much stuff! This
business should be FUN—not a lot of WORK! Set up trays and mirrors. Have your Ultimate Roll-Up Bag on its side with all products set out in front of each pocket. These are
the products you demo from!
While setting up -1st point of the 4 point of the Recruiting Plan: Ask your hostess ―Tell me about your friends who are coming.” – listen for clues.
Hostess makeover (only if this is her 2nd appointment)
Still prior to the scheduled time—take guests, as they arrive, to the class table to
match her foundation while she completes her Customer Profile. Write their color on their profile
& put it on her tray. Set a lip gloss sample next to her tray. Get to know each guest. Find out how
she knows the hostess. As long as there is time, direct her to the kitchen to do Satin Hands & Lips
treatment (hostess assists). If she finishes in time, have her flip through the first 5 pages of the
At the scheduled time for the appointment— ALWAYS honor those on time & NOT
those who are late!

―Welcome, thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to be
here tonight! My name is Tammy Bone, and it is my pleasure to introduce you or
reintroduce you to Mary Kay Cosmetics skin care and glamour line. I hope you’ve
come tonight in need of some fun, because my #1 goal in being here with you tonight
is to help you have some fun, do something different for a Tuesday evening, help you
fall in love with these products and this amazing company just as much as I am! At
Mary Kay we believe that by simply nurturing a woman on the outside, what we really
do is nurture a piece of who she is on the inside and my sincerest desire today is
that each of you leave here feeling better about who you are tonight! I want you
leave here feeling like a million bucks!
Some of you may have come to try Mary Kay products for the very 1st time! Some
of you may have come to help your consultant with her training or to help her reach a
goal she is working on. Some of you may have come because you specifically want to
know more about the Mary Kay opportunity. Some of you came because we promised
you food!!! Whatever your reason, we thank you for being here.
We will have a lot of fun today and I’ll be using our Flip Chart to keep me on track
and for training for our newest consultants here tonight.

How many of you know that Mary Kay is the #1 best-selling brand of skin care and
color cosmetics in America today?
Would it surprise you to know that the Mary Kay Sales Directors are the highest
paid women in America today? According to the Wall Street Journal there are more
women in MK who make over $100,000 per year than any other company in the US,
and I have to be honest with you: I‘m pretty darn excited about that!
We‘ll have plenty of time to talk about that later, but let me just quickly tell you what we‘re going to do tonight.
1. Basic Skin Care – (tonight’s focus) 2. Basic glamour –
3. Sharing some basic information about our company for those of you who are here
tonight to ‗check us out‘
4. And finally, a private consultation with your consultant so she may answer any
questions you may have one on one
This is the first of two appointments you are entitled to with your consultant. I don‘t
know if you‘ve ever tried to get your hair colored and permed on the same day, but
it‘s just WAY too much, and it‘s kind of the same in MK.
Trying to teach you everything I know about SC and glamour is just way too much,
so today we‘re going to focus on skin care, and we‘ll do very basic ―Dash out the
Then at the follow-up appointment you‘ll book with your consultant, she‘ll teach
you everything she knows about full on glamour. Tonight I‘m going to teach you the
basics to get any girl started.
So, let‘s get started! What do you think is the #1 thing that‘s make MK so famous
over the past 44 years? (Not the Caddy – skincare!) Next page
Now, how many of you prefer to try a product before you buy it? Doesn‘t that make
sense to you? Have you ever taken something home from the cosmetic counter in the
department store and it was wrong color; too oily; too dry. How many have a make-
up graveyard at home (nodding your head and raising your hand)? That drawer of buying mistakes? That will never happen because you can try before you buy. I‘m
going to teach you step to step how to use it and then we can get together again in a
week or two to make sure everything you are using is right for you! If we don‘t get
your foundation color right…we can exchange it…Mary Kay is unconditionally
guaranteed. You will never be stuck with something in Mary Kay that you don‘t
THE CUSTOMER PROMISE OATH!! Ok everyone ~ Raise your right hands and
repeat after me ―I promise…that if I fall in love with something tonight…and take it
home…only to discover that it‘s not right for me….I will tell my consultant….so she
can exchange it for something that IS right for me..‖
Today we are focusing primarily on skin care. We are going to be cleansing around
your eyes so, please do not remove your eye make up tonight. We‘ll save that for when we do your personalized color appointment. If I tried to help each of you
tonight we‘d be here until the wee hours of the morning and I don‘t think that‘s what
you had in mind!
Take out your Beauty Book (NOT the Look Book) and write your name on the front. This is your book. You can do anything you want with it, make notes, draw pictures
of me -as long as they are skinny (whatever) and turn to page 6. Now, when it comes
to skin care MOST women would prefer to skip right past it, because it‘s too complicated and it takes too long. PLUS color is the fun part anyway, right? But,
would you all agree with me (nodding and raising your right hand) that taking care of your skin is the most important part of looking younger and feeling better? After
all, your make up will never give you the look you want if you don‘t take care of
your skin. Do you know that most women spend more $ and time on household
cleaning products (like toilet and floor cleaner) than they do skin care? If you think
about it – THAT‘S CRAZY – because you can always buy a new toilet, but you
can‘t buy a new face! How many of you are excited about looking old??? OK, then
First of all, it‘s important to use a premium product, customized for your skin care
needs. What else is not a premium skin care product—4-letter word beginning with ‘s‘. That‘s right...soap. Soap belongs in one place on your body—and that‘s
under your arms!
Secondly, it‘s important to use all the same brand of skin care. Mixing and matching
is like waging chemical warfare on your face. Think of it like this. If you were going
to bake a cake for a very special occasion, would you take out 5 different recipes and
choose one ingredient from each one to put into your cake? If you did, what would
happen? (wait for answers)
You would have absolutely no idea of the end result, right? But that‘s what we do
with our face! We use a cleanser from one brand, a moisturizer from another and a
freshener from yet another. And then we wonder why we are not happy with the
result! I will be following up with you to make sure you LOVE everything you have.
Do you know that should you ever return a product to me, Mary Kay will replace it
and it never comes out of my pocket, so you never have to worry about feeling
guilty for hurting my feelings or my business! Isn‘t that GREAT? OK, lets get serious about your skin. Follow along with me on page 6 of your Beauty book.
There are 5 basic steps to great skin – does anyone know what they are?
(Cleanse, exfoliate, tone, moisturize, protect).
The first one is cleansing. You want to cleanse your skin morning and night, every
So, on that bottle that says 3-1 Cleanser, write ‗morning and night‘. If you FAIL TO CLEANSE, it‘s a CRIME! In the morning it‘s a misdemeanor, but
at night, it‘s a FELONY! And, I have heard that if you don‘t wash your face at night,
your skin ages 14 days. So on that same bottle write 14 days. Now, I have absolutely
no idea if that‘s correct, but it‘s what I‗ve heard, and the truth is, your skin does age
more rapidly when you don‘t wash it before bed. So 14 days will remind you not to
use your pillowcase as a washcloth.
Why don‘t you FEEL your skin really quickly? That way you will know if it feels
any different after we try the products.
Let‘s take a look and most importantly FEEL this collection of products in action.
Scoop up that product in the corner of your tray – apply the cleanser in an upward and outward motion. When you are finished, your consultant is going to give you a
wet cloth to remove it with. And I‘ll explain what‘s happening. The Timewise 3 In
1 Cleanser does three things at one time! Simple huh? Cleanse, exfoliate, and
freshen. We know that it‘s very important to exfoliate regularly. How many of you sit down twice a week for 10-15 minutes with a mask of your face? Why is it that we
do not exfoliate regularly? (they will usually say time) Exactly, so Mary Kay has put the exfoliater right into your cleanser! Hence the name, TIMEWISE (because it
saves you TIME) 3 in 1, because your cleanser, mask and freshener are all in the
cleanser! Cool, huh? And it even comes in a bar for those of you who prefer. After
using it for a week or so, if you think you want or need a different formula cleanser,
you‘ll consultant will be happy to switch it out when we have your check-up and
color appointment. Doesn‘t that feel great? Fresh! Clean!
―Now, Are you ready for instant gratification??? This is Mary Kay‘s latest addition
to achieving the best for your skin. There are 2 steps in the TimeWise
Microdermabrasion Set. This set goes to work immediately to fight fine lines, make
your pores look smaller and revitalize the skin so it looks softer and smoother. Once
you try it, you will wonder how you ever lived without it. Now we‘ll be applying the Microdermbrasion to the right side of the face. Let‘s start with Step 1 Refine:
This step is a super exfoliating cream
That contains the same aluminum oxide crystals the dermotologists use. As you
gently massage your face, these micro fine crystals immediately polish and gently
removes dull and lifeless skin cells. This process energizes and instantly reveals
more radiant, healthy-looking skin. Now remove‖.
―Step 2 Replenish: The second step is a lightweight, nourishing serum with a
wonderful restorative effect. Instantly, skin feels soothed, smoothed and softened
and ready for your next step in your Mary Kay skin care regimen. You‘ll want to
Micro 2 to 3 times a week. ―85% saw improvement in skin texture, 73% saw a
reduction in fine ines, 71% saw smaller-looking pores.
Who doesn‘t want these results‖?
Now...everyone take your mirror out of your tray and hold it up in front of
As you look in the mirror, I want to share with you a little about how your
skin ages. Does anyone know how old you are when the first signs of
aging start to appear on your skin? (Mid-twenties)
And unfortunately for us, it doesn‘t reverse itself from there. So, now that you‘re all depressed, put your mirrors back in the tray and
look at page 7. I have good news for you. It‘s never too late to start taking
care of your skin. Likewise, it‘s never too early. Mary Kay has the answer to the war on aging. It‘s called Day Solution
and Night Solution. (Hold the bottles up from your ultimate bag).
On the white bottle on page 7, write ‗DAY‘ really big. The Day Solution
has an SPF of 25, which protects your skin from damaging UV rays while
botanical extracts support the skin‘s daytime energy needs. And on the clear bottle write ‗NIGHT‘!
The Night Solution supplies a highly effective blend of vitamins—see the
The ingredients, over time, will dramatically reduce the appearance of
fine lines and wrinkles.
Now, go ahead and apply the Day Solution that‘s in your tray to ONLY
THE RIGHT side of your face again to see how it feels.
I call the Day and Night Solution ―support panty hose for your face‖,
because they just lift everything up and suck it back into place!

OK, next you apply your Moisturizer morning and night, so write
‗MORNING & NIGHT‘ on that moisturizer bottle. If you think you need more hydration, we will add it at your follow up
appointment. NOW READ ALL 3 PARAGRAPHS ON MOISTURIZER
Now, where‘s the first place you have noticed signs of aging on your face? The eyes – right! Let‘s treat you to our new Firming Eye Cream.
Ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested. Rich and creamy---this
product improves firmness, brightens the delicate skin of the eye area,
delivers intense hydration, while fighting fine lines and wrinkles. A girl‘s best friend!!!
―Of course, foundation is the final step in any good skin care routine. It
helps protect your skin from the environment as it evens skin tone and
covers flaw for a healthy, glowing look.‖ Think of it this way, if you are driving through town and you see two
houses side by side, both 25 years old. One is painted and one is not.
Which one looks better? Exactly, because the paint protects the wood
from the environment. Think of your foundation the same way.
We have 5 different types of foundation and a color that matches every
woman‘s skin...so there IS one that is right for you! Just dot it on and
Our medium coverage foundation is the best on the market, and that‘s
what you‘re going to try today. You‘ll love how your skin feels when you
You can always use your fingertips, a sponge, or a foundation brush to
apply, but for you today we‘re going to use our fingers. So go ahead and
dab it on and rub it in. Simply dot on and with your finger tips, smooth
outward lightly in sweeping strokes, carefully blending along the jaw line
A bit about our foundation – It has advanced color pigments for a natural look, vitamin A & E, cucumber & lemon extract to even out skin tone, it‘s
oil- free & has transfer resistant properties. When booking your follow
up facial today with your consultant, you can discuss which formula is
best for your personal foundation needs. Notice how your foundation
seems to disappear. That‘s how we know we selected the right shade. We also have multiple formulas of foundation and your consultant
will discuss the right Mary Kay foundation for you at your individual
If you find that it is too light or dark or you need a different undertone,
make a note on the back of your profile card, and we‘ll be happy to
change it during your private consultation. I also think you sometimes
have to wear a foundation for a few days in all different lights to be sure
its right for you. If needed, we can always switch it out at your check-up
Let‘s review our PowerHouse Skin Care Steps. These simple steps we‘ve just
completed are the same steps you‘ll follow at home. In the morning, first apply your
TimeWise 3 in 1 cleanser, your TimeWise Day Solution with Sunscreen SPF 25,
TimeWise Age-Fighting Mosturizer and your TimeWise foundation. At night, apply
TimeWise 3 in 1 Cleanser, TimeWise Night Solution
And TimeWise Age-Fighting Moisturizer. Remember your new Microdermabrasion
2 to 3 times a week.
When you combine all 5 of these products pictured together.
That is our Miracle Set, so write MIRACLE on that picture.
While you are looking at the photos on page 7 of the woman‘s eye before and after
using the Miracle Set for 12 weeks, let me tell you the results you can expect from
these products…read statistics from Beauty book.
So how does your face feel? Doesn‘t it feel soft? That‘s after just one use, so just imagine how good it would feel in a few weeks!
Now, what is the #1 reason women do not take care of their skin? (time) You‘re
right, so I‘m going to show you how fast your skin care routine would be if I weren‘t
here yakking at you. We are going to have a RACE! So, everyone hold up your hand.
I want you to apply products to the area where your wrist and hand meet (the joint)
as fast as you can, in the order I tell you. That means right here (show them the joint
area above where they did Satin hands)
OK, get ready, get set... massage the TW 3-1 Cleanser on and wipe it off. Now, put
on your Day Solution, now your Moisturizer, now your foundation. OK, now put
foundation on the joint of your other wrist and see how differently it goes on and
how it looks. What do you notice? (Someone will say lines)
Notice the difference in the lines? If you see that much difference in one application
of the Miracle Set, what will you see after a few weeks? That‘s why we call it the
Miracle Set. If you want to look younger than everyone else at your Class Reunion –
this is the set for you!
OK now, fluff up your hair a little and you have just completed everything you need
to take great care of your skin and win the war on aging. Doesn‘t your face feel
