If a cosmetic brand hires me to demonstrate using their products for a short video and pays me for this promotional content that will then be used in their campaigns, is this lawful? If I demonstrate their products on a model instead of myself is it permissible?

It will be permissible as long as you are not required to expose your ʿawrah, nor promote products that are deemed to be ḥarām in the Sharīʿah. Similar would be the case if you were to use a model instead of yourself.
