Pro Discounts

Maintaining a well stocked and varied kit to meet any make-up needs can get very expensive.  For this reason many professional brands offer a pro discount program to qualified make-up artists and in some cases beauty students, stylists and actors.  It's also in these brands best interests to vie for those coveted spots in our make-up kit, as we're often the ones that 'sell' the product to our clients, models and actors.  I can't even count how many times I've been asked to jot down the products I've used on people, presumably so they can purchase it for regular use on themselves.

I've compiled a list of brands that offer a professional discount program to make-up artists and industry professionals.  This is a fairly complete list and up to date as of July 2012, but I'll of course keep updating it as programs change and other brands jump on the bandwagon.  The majority of these programs are free but the odd ones have yearly fees (for example, MAC and Dinair), but all do have an application process in which you have to provide professional requirements to be approved.  Each program is different, so click the application links to see if you're eligible.

Happy make-uping, babes!
