Well, although I don't think it would be right to just give you an already worked out idea, I could try to point you in the right direction. I went to gettyimages.com, and searched for "cosmetics", and lo and behold I got about 3 or 4 ideas just from looking at photographs that are related to cosmetics. Give it a try if you're really stuck for ideas.

I'd recommend browsing through women's magazines. You can check out other cosmetic company's ads and logos for inspiration.

I guess it really all depends in which direction you are looking to go and to who you are trying to sell. Bold and busy for the younger generation. Soft and sophisticated for the "mature".

Use google (both normal google and google images), dictonaries, and photo websites. Try looking at competitors, etc. Or just forget about it for a while and try again later, that works sometimes :).

Another tip for someone who may be reading this:

I always play VISUAL word association games when I'm stuck.


Cosmetics make you think of lipstick, skincare, makeup, beauty, etc.

Then visually think of those things.

Use the new words as an association. Lipstick- lips, rollon, curve of lips,

beauty- flowers, peace, love, etc.

It can go on and on and on... think of ways you can turn the words into graphics. You'll soon get ideas of what kind of logo to make.
