I'll have to admit that I LOVE a good discount.  I'm on of those suckers that will buy 10 bags of marshmallows for $10 just because a dollar each is way better than the 1.50 it usually is.  Thats a stomach ache waiting to happen!  Geez I'm easily distracted... My point was, who can resist a discount?  Being a makeup artist or even a makeup enthusiast can get seriously expensive.  So you can only imagine my happy dance as I dropped my MAC Pro application in the mail yesterday :)  I literally cant wait to get 40% off my addiction.  So it made me think... where ELSE can I get a pro discount?!  I did a little digging & found a pose on Model Mayhem by Lily Wasik, a fellow MUA.  Additionally, also has a pro discount that varies with different brands.  And if you plan on attending IMATS LA this year, you can sign up for the makeup artist pro card here that will get you in Friday for an event that is specifically for PRO MUAs.  Good luck & happy shopping!!
