I'm a 15 year old who wants to be a makeup artist , I'm really passionate about it and one of the things on my grand list of makeup artist accomplishment list is to work at MAC , I'm really curious about the industry and I want to know if you think a MAC MUA at a counter would let me shadow them.
They most likely will not due to the laws on minors working. Your best best is to shadow a freelance MUA than a MAC one. By shadowing a freelance MUA you learn more than shadowing a MAC employee who is working strictly with MAC products in a MAC environment therefore they're not working outside the box.

Most likely not and that's due to labor laws. I know at my local MAC store you must be at least 18 to work there.

im pretty sure all the mac locations require you to be atleast 18 to work for them.

i was thinking about doing that too, but i am 18 working on getting my license.
You definitely have to be 18. What if you assisted a makeup artist who does brides? Go on jobs with them and get experience that way til you an work at a couter?

It doesn't hurt to ask and see if any of the MAC artists do freelance work outside of MAC.
