Beauty Industry Demographic & Talent Trends/Statistics 2014, 2015, 2016: The Flat Agers, 60 Plus - Cosmetic Executive Women

Where is the beauty industry headed? What are the next big consumer demographic trends? How can industry professionals prepare themselves for the jobs of the future?

The answers to those questions and others were answered by experts from The Future Laboratory, a leader in trend forecasting, consumer insights and brand innovation and The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), one of the world’s leading management-consulting firms, at Cosmetic Executive Women’s May 1 event, Future Focus: Game Changing Insights on Trends & Talent. In 2007, BCG partnered with CEW to investigate trends of a work/life balance among women in the beauty industry. This year, BCG once again has collaborated with CEW to answer a new set of questions.

Beauty Industry Demographic & Talent Trends/Statistics 2014, 2015, 2016: The Flat Agers, 60 Plus - Cosmetic Executive Women Actress Jessica Lange will be the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty. She is 64!

It used to be that beauty marketers focused on targeting women 18-49 years old. In reality, that demographic has grown. The 60+ demographic, also known as the Flat Agers, is growing. And instead of concentrating on their age, beauty marketers should be focusing on the Flat Agers‘ mindset.

In an impressive survery, it was found that women over the age of 65 are using social media — that’s a whopping 43%! The Flat Agers are growing fast and actually have more in common with Millenials than Generation Xers or Yers. Although one might think the relation Flat Agers may have with Millenials coincide with the concept of looking younger. Flat Agers actually are embracing their age. They don’t want to look 20 years younger. They want to look good for their age, improving their looks by “touching up” instead of taking drastic measures. The key to the next big trends in beauty all has to do with being social and engaging with consumers constantly online.

“At this first-of-its-kind event, we are bringing together these two recognized leaders in trend forecasting, to share proprietary new information that will impact the future of the beauty industry,” said Carlotta Jacobson, President of CEW. “We want to equip our members with business-driving insights on what’s next for beauty.”

During the session, Lucie Greene, Editor at LS:N Global, the trends network at The Future Laboratory, uncovered important shifts in consumer attitudes and the next key demographic segment that will impact the beauty industry. Cathrin Bowtell, Learning & Development Manager, NYM, and Sarah Willersdorf, Principal, at BCG shared the findings of a survey fielded exclusively for CEW among the top cosmetic companies and their employees, revealing the skill sets and talent that will be required for future beauty innovation. Executives and survey respondents pin-pointed 5 key industry challenges as well as the implications on talent:

Universal Focus: Need to successfully recruit and integrate talent from outside the beauty industry.

Retail Environment: Make it more complex with a knowledgeable team of experts with a grasp on the local and multicultural market; operational skills at an all-time high, especially on the junior level.

Digital: Need to aggressively recruit and win digital talent by competing with other industries. Social media knowledge is a core skill.

Increased Competition & Pricing Pressure: More specialist roles ex. retail, and more integrators. An analytical/quantitative skill set is now essential to lead function.

Consumer Diversification: International talent critical, though difficult to successfully integrate ethnic diversity and understanding of cross-ethnicity trends.

Beauty Industry Trends/Statistics 2014: Cosmetics Executive Women Insider Series - MAC Cosmetics: The Path To Success

One word: M•A•C . And that’s all you need to say to get cosmetic fans’ hearts pumping. I was more than grateful to have been able to attend the CEW Beauty Insider Series M•A•C Cosmetics: The Path To Success event a few days back.

Personally, M•A•C is the brand that really got me interested in makeup (as I am sure it was for plenty of other makeup lovers). My mom and I used to drive 40 miles to our nearest Saks to get our fix. And now, I was sitting behind M•A•C Cosmetics John Demsey (CEO) and James Gager (Creative Director), a kind of surreal moment.

So, who doesn’t want to get an inside look at the mecca makeup brand? How did global powerhouse M•A•C Cosmetics achieve its status as one of the most cutting-edge artistry brands in the world?

Beauty Industry Trends/Statistics 2014: Cosmetics Executive Women Insider Series - MAC Cosmetics: The Path To Success

Karen Buglisi Weiler, Global Brand President of M•A•C Cosmetics, discussed the DNA of M•A•C, stating that the secret to the brand’s success is its interpersonal connections with makeup artists and consumers. Her best days aren’t spent sitting behind a desk, but engaging with the MUAs. And whoever “cracks” the social landscape code will ultimately “win” the beauty consumer. M•A•C to this day still works closely with past executives, having created this strong family unite of talented business and creative minds alike.

Karen Buglisi Weiler, who has been in her current role for the past four years and with the brand for over 16 years (always rocking her sky-scraping stilettos), discussed what makes M•A•C CosmeticsM•A•C,” including the brand’s personnel philosophy, business and marketing strategies and retail insights that have grown M•A•C into a nearly two billion dollar brand, in a conversation with Jenny Fine, Editor, WWD Beauty Inc. Here are some of the impressive statistics and points discussed throughout the evening:

M•A•C produces close to 50 new innovations a year. That’s almost 1 per week!

There are over 17K M•A•C MUAs that the brand relies on for training each other and the consumer.

M•A•C prides themselves on charitable and relevant collaborations (like VIVA GLAM and Rihanna) to keep the brand fresh.

Lipstick Ruby Woo is one of the world’s leading perfect shades of red lipstick. It used to be that the MUAs would take off the red lipstick when leaving the stores, but now it is so mainstream they wear it personally, too.

We are just obsessed with the latest in beauty! And who better than to give us a sneak-peek at some of the most exciting cosmetic trends and innovative beauty products coming up this year than CEW.

CEW 20th Annual Insider’s Choice Beauty Awards With Product Demo – Which Of The Best Makeup, Skincare, Hair Products Of 2013 Will Win At The May 2014 Event

As CEW prepares for its annual Beauty Awards (May 16th) and diligently vets each product, they were happy to share what they’ve uncovered. In preparation for this year’s 2014 CEW Finalist announcement (this Friday, April 4th), here’s the inside scoop on this year’s leading beauty innovations:

· Get Masked!: Masks and peels saw a 66% sales jump in prestige outlets in 2013 and helped meet consumers’ need for immediate results.

·  Size Matters: The mass market was inundated with volume-driven mascaras in 2013, showing that thicker lashes are this years’ must-have.

· Anti-Aging Hair Care: Fighting the signs of aging moved from skin into hair care with creams, serums and even a color made with anti-aging formulas.

· Buzz Words: Gentle, Oil-Based, etc. This year exfoliation is taking a back seat to facial cleansers that treat skin gently. Oils, gentle gels and hydrating cleansers were the stars in 2013.

· Art Inspired Eyes: Beauty companies took an artistic cue by using tints, washes and pigments in their eye formulas in 2013.

· All About CC: CC Creams upped the ante in the alphabet soup of skincare with new tints, sticks and sprays.

· Color Returns to Lipcolor: Glosses and shines were overpowered by deep lip hues with rich, buildable staying power.

· Professional Lines: Products from industry experts are on an upswing, fueled by consumers seeking credibility from their beauty formulas. “Professionals” range from brands by doctors to items by beauty veterans.
