Jan 17, 2013

I wonder if they consider cosmetology license the same thing as a makeup artist certification from a certified makeup artistry school.
Updating with Frends info.

I am a licensed cosmetologist. do I just need to contact these companies with a photo of my license to apply for the discounts? that would be so exciting to get a lower price :-)
Most companies will not accept cosmetology licenses as proof of being a professional makeup artist. Others may give only a 10% to 30% discount instead of a larger discount (but hey, it's still a discount). Look at the requirements each company sets for applying for their pro cards/discounts.

Thanks for the info, I have only three more to get. I know of a few that I didn't see on your list.
May 06, 2013
Wow! Amazing information! Thank you so much! Following you immediately.
