If you’re a makeup artist, a makeup student or even a creative professional such as a model, fashion stylist, actor or photographer then the great news is that you’re eligible for some great discounts from your favourite makeup brands.
Cosmetic brands can offer anywhere between 20% and 40% discount on products as long as you can prove you’re a jobbing makeup artist or training to become a makeup artist. Usually this means submitting ID along with two forms of proof, although it varies from company to company. Proof is usually in the form of a qualification certificate, call sheet, editorial credit, website or agency contract.
I’m based in the UK so this post features discounts available to UK makeup artists, although many are available internationally too.
If you know of any brands I haven’t mentioned who offer pro makeup artist discount in the UK please let me know in the comments so I can keep this list updated.
