Makeup and skincare brands can offer up to 40% discount on products for professionals or around 20% discount for students. Industry professionals for many brands consist of makeup artists, aestheticians, cosmetologists, hairstylists, fashion stylists, manicurists, costume designers, models, on-air talent/performers and photographers.
There are different application procedures for each company, but they generally require a form of ID alongside two forms of evidence to show you are a working professional or student. The required evidence can consist of the following: college enrolment letter, certificate/diploma, editorial/tear sheet credits, website, press material with credits or agency contract.
There are many brands who offer discount programs and it can take some time to submit the necessary evidence, however it is certainly worthwhile and can be greatly beneficial if you need to continuously purchase products for your job.
