I taped her early morning show 2am and watched it today. She was paired with Helen Keaney. A blush and powder compact was being shown and Trish told Helen to take the brush and show how to put it on, Helen ask Trish if she would want to do this for her, and Trish said I do not and my Hosts know they are to do their own. Helen was very uncomfortable being made to model some of the products and I thought it was throught less of Trish to treat Helen in such a way.
I remember watching Trish with Amy Morrison and demanding that Amy set in the chair so that she could use her as a model and put the products on her. Why use the hosts as your models or even an extention of the models? The host has enough to do in giving information about the products. Amy is a Host that does use the products so she has plenty to say about them, which is always informative.
Sounds like a silly spat…Helen certainly can apply makeup, and Trish, lets just say THIS ISNT ROCKET SCIENCE, WE KNOW HOW TO APPLY BLUSH. LOOK AT THIS!
I think that the host should be able able to apply the blush, powder and makeup. They should be able to do it live on air. This will allow us…the women watching to determine how easy or not it is for women that are not makeup professionals to apply what they are asking us the buy.
Trish is correct…the hosts that are on with her puts on what she ask them to. I have seen it time and time again. This is a part of selling the products…ease of use. Yes, they can have a model there for Helen…and have the model put the make on but, then HSN would not need Helen there. Trish is great at selling her own products…she can pitch her own products better than Helen ever could.
By the way…sometimes Trish ask the models to put products on themselves also.
Helen gets a percentage of every dollar of Trish’s product that is sold during the program…YES, Helen should put on the makeup…that is a part of working for the money that you are paid for presenting the products. Helen was not asked to do Trish a favor…she was ask to do her job.
