Hey there :)
I am pretty new to Beautylish, and I couldnt find any topics covering travelling as a MUA. I am planning on doing a makeup course and becoming one myself - but what I am interested in apart building own kit (which I found a lot of topics on) - when you get a job outside of your country (if you do, that is); are companies paying for your trip as in is it part of a contract? Or even, do you sign a contract when being hired to do lets say: fashion shows or the likes?

If you are freelancing, make sure all of your fees and costs are covered with your rate or arrangements you've made with your client. A written contract always helps.

Contracts are very important. If you are traveling outside the country for a bride, they pick up the tab on flight and hotel.
If you have a Agent, that is what they are for... to have your back! If not, GET IN WRITING...
THE TERMS, payment, travel expenses, Hotel, Food, Gas, even Kit Fee....think about asking for a 50% of your fee up front..... Communication is KEY and always try to keep that "discussion" via email... If not possible, after a chat with someone where terms were discussed, say something like "It was so great speaking to you, I am so excited about working together... After we hang up, I will prepare a quick email with all the details of what we discussed so you have them ;) Please let me know that you received it ;)
Email is your Receipt. Then its like " OH NO Baby, I did NOT make it up.... ha ha
I hope that helps!

A.) Contract is vital in every transaction as a freelancer. Period. If you're going to be providing your services, you need to make sure all of your terms, fees, and amenities are spelled out in a contract. If you're getting hired to do a job that requires you to travel, it should be stated in your contract that the company will be covering your, travel, lodging, meals, transportation, etc. Like it's been stated above, if you have agency representation, this isn't something you usually have to worry about, but if you're freelancing you must make sure that you're not selling yourself short.
