Beauty Discounts



Are you tired of spending hundreds of dollars at cosmetic stores? The prices of the high end make-up can get outrageous! $60 for a make-up brush?! I can't see myself justifying spending that much on a make-up brush. Many people may not know this, because I didn't up until recently, but for those of you that are licensed make-up artists (MUA's), there is a long list of cosmetic lines, both high end and drugstore, that will give you discounts if you provide proof that you are licensed. Some cosmetic lines will even accept proof of enrollment if you are a cosmetology student. Of course the licensed MUA's receive a better discount than the students, but something is better than nothing! And I'm always up for a discount.

Typically they'll ask for a photo ID and two items from the list below, but some cosmetic lines can be more detailed and require more information. Some requirements to be approved for these discounts are listed below.

Discount card from other company
A copy of your driver ’s license or state/federal photo ID
Business card
Reference from a makeup gig
Comp Card
Professional Website
Union Card
Tear Sheets
Call Sheet
Agency Information
One time fee or annual fee
Students: Proof of enrollment
