Salt Lake City, Utah, March 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BV Rating, an internet rating company, recently reviewed US based companies operating in the gig economies to determine who’s changing the landscape for job-seekers in 2020. The gig economy, which is also known to some as the agile labor market, is experiencing steady growth, with job seekers choosing to forgo traditional office jobs in favor of more flexible work as consultants and freelancers. Others are simply adding to their daily grind with side-gig or temporary work. Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, GoPuff, HomeAdvisor, and others are examples of gig-companies. According to one study that tracked the steady decrease in traditional employment throughout the United States, the gig economy, and gig jobs are attractive to employees due to the flexibility and availability to work from home. 

One such company attracting a lot of attention is Younique. BV Rating dug into what makes this company stand out among so many other opportunities, and found that Younique is a direct-sales cosmetics company, started by brother and sister (team) Derek Maxfield and Melanie Huscroft. From launch, Derek and Melanie decided that their company's mission would be to empower women to achieve the very best versions of themselves. Their company culture is centered on the belief that every woman should feel valued, smart, and empowered through opportunities for personal growth and financial reward. 

Amplifying a woman's real beauty is important to Younique, and is claimed to be a constant measurement during product development.. Since its inception in 2012, Younique has developed new products and updated existing offerings, in order to take inspiration from the latest fashion trends and industry innovations. Younique is the first direct sales company to pioneer the social media-based business model.

The large cosmetics retailer Sephora offers what they call their "clean" makeup products. However, these products are made by other companies and simply curated by the store and company. At Younique, in-house experts and scientists say that they consistently work to achieve only the best results for skin using a mix of ingredients and cutting-edge technology to help women look radiant. 

A more direct competitor to Younique, a direct sales cosmetics company, Mary Kay who’s known for their skin care product line. However, when looking at the company's website, it is immediately apparent that the use of ingredients is not crucial to the company, which is a difference in product quality focus between these two brands. On Younique's product page, each product displays a list of what ingredients are key components in each product, highlighting what they do for each woman's unique skin. Another company you’ve likely heard of in this space, and with a similar model is NuSkin. These companies all offer a wide range of products that women globally love. There are many differences however between the Younique, Mary Kay, and NuSkin products, and Younique’s cosmetics seem to be leading the way in this gig job, cosmetics space.

During these trying times with stock market shifts, and a global pandemic, many individuals have lost employment, and are looking for something different. There will be plenty of people looking to build an income from the comfort of their homes in the coming months. BV Rating states that companies like Younique can help with that. 

Signing up with Younique is a simple process, and it is not expensive when compared with other opportunities; which can be very important to gig-workers. Once you are registered, the company says they will send you all of the tools and information you need to start selling immediately. Then, you can start hosting YOUNIQUE parties from the comfort of your own home. 

You can host a YOUNIQUE Virtual Party from your own home, without the need to ever leave it. To start one, you just need to share a link that Younique provides with anyone you want. When they click that link, then the party is on! 

Creating opportunities for yourself can be hard, especially in challenging environments and in difficult times. Companies like Younique and other female-first companies are creating better situations for women in tough times like this. 

When you sign up as a Presenter with YOUNIQUE, the company sends you your New Presenter Kit full of information, tools, and most importantly, premium cosmetics and skin care products! This gives you the opportunity to learn new skills, and let’s be honest, have a little fun. We all deserve to unwind and treat ourselves during this stressful time a little bit. Go ahead and play! Plus, you’ll look gorgeous
