Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:

  • Is the name simple and easy to remember?
  • Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
  • Is the name different from competitors?

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great makeup and beauty business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Beauty Basics

This sounds like a store that deals in mainly basic or beginners beauty needs.

Bossy Beauties

This sounds like a makeup brand for professional women.

Supreme Sparkle

This sounds like an extraordinarily flashy or glamorous makeup outlet.

Beauty Bounty

This sounds like a wholesale makeup store.

#4) Check if it’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great makeup and beauty business names on your list, in case any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if your name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Check Domain Availability

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful Beauty businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Urban Decay Logo

Urban Decay
the husband of company cofounder Sandy Lerner is responsible for this name. the original concept envisioned the term “urban” being used. The phrase Urban Decay was coined and it stuck. A term that originally had negative connotations has now become incredibly popular.

Sephora Logo

Sephora
as far as complicated names go, this one has no competition. Sephora is the result of a combination between Zipporah – the wife of Moses who was an exceptional beauty – and the Greek work for beauty and vanity – sephosis.

Lancome Logo

Lancome
this brand is named after a French castle that the founder visited. Armand Petitjean was also inspired by the yellow flowers blossoming around the chateau. These flowers are today a part of the Lancome logo.

5 Tips for naming your makeup and beauty business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

1. Do a Competitor Analysis

Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:

  • What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
  • Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
  • Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?

2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused makeup and beauty terms like “Glow,” “highlighter” or “contour.” A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a real makeup and beauty business named “ColourPop”.

Literally, this is a real makeup store that deals in mostly lipsticks and eyeshadows, and instead of representing their business, they used something familiar to all these areas of beauty which is a pop of color.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Bossy Beauties, Supreme Sparkle)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Midas Touch: this term refers to an ancient King’s ability to turn everything he touches to gold, and now incorporating this term into makeup signifies an excellent or glamorous makeup)
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable makeup and beauty business names could be:

  • Klassichic
  • Glamified
  • Pearlville Salon

You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.

Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, if the plan was to use Makeup Maven, its unavailability should not make you switch to MaMav. Instead, you should start this process over again and generate a new name.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
