Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Mac Cosmetics
GOT THE JOB? Yes
Dear Hiring Manager:
I was recently referred by an employee at the MAC counter of the Macy’s located at XXX to apply for the newly opened beauty advisor positions. I have gained an exceptional amount of knowledge and experience of makeup application over the years.
I’m currently a freelance make-up artist for the MAC cosmetics counter at the Macy’s located in XXX. In the past, I assumed a position as a make-up artist for an online clothing store where I applied makeup to their models for photo-shoots and was also the head make-up artist for their fashion show. I also obtained a position as an assistant makeup artist for a notable makeup artistry company for about two years where I was taught to not only apply makeup in a professional manner, but also learned to focus on skin-care as well. I am now looking for a more stable and permanent position at your company because I know for a fact it will aid in my continuing knowledge of the cosmetic world.
I have the ability to meet and succeed sales and quotas due to my past retail experience. I’ve got strong interpersonal, organizational, and communication skills. I am also goal-driven, with ability to multi-task and be a part of a team.
I believe with my past experiences, knowledge and skills I’d make a great candidate for this position.
Please be sure to refer to my enclosed resume for a more detailed explanation of my past work experience.
Thank you for the opportunity. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Dear Mrs. Alexander,
I’m writing this application for the post of makeup artist advertised on Dec 17, 2014 in “The Job Magazine”. I’ve three years of extensive experience as a makeup artist and want to work with a top class team in a beauty salon like yours.
I’m a certified makeup artist and a skilled hair stylist. I’ve worked on bridal makeup, fashion makeup, theatrical makeup, funeral makeup, etc. I’m also skilled for character makeup and special effects makeup, but my specialization is fashion makeup and I was the makeup artist for the “Beauty Calendar 2013”. As per your advertisement, you’re giving advantages to fashion makeup artists. So I think I’m the perfect match for the post you advertised.
I’m also a health and beauty consultant and give advice on cosmetics and makeup.
My mobile no. is (000) 008-0000 and email ID is email@example.com. Please contact me for further details and interview. Thank you for accepting my application.
