Makeup Brands That Offer Pro Discounts for Makeup Artists
For those of you who have taken your obsession with makeup to the next level and made it your profession, you know that it’s not a cheap industry to work in. Between foundation products that you need in multiple skin tones (and could cost you about $50 each), lip palettes, eye palettes, concealer palettes, you name it and you probably need it in your kit.
Of course you actually want to be making money rather than just spending your fee on more makeup for your kit, and that’s why some of our favorite brands have gone ahead and offered a “pro” discount to makeup artists. Many of the brands have different requirements all of which you can find in the links provided ranging from beauty student discounts to those who are seasoned professionals. I have supplied you with an very extensive list of companies and links, however you will have to do your homework and find out the requirements. Take the time to apply for as many discounts as you can.
FYI Beauty Supply Stores such as Frends, Namies, Nigels, Paint and Powder Store and Camera Ready Cosmetics carry products including major skin care lines that do not have a pro discount program and offer a 10% to 40% discounts.
