Pro Artist Programs

Samples of Programs available for industry pros

TW&Co Body+Beauty Pro

We would love TW&Co Body+Beauty to be the first pro centre in Buffalo for Makeup Artists & Hairstylists. The Film Industry in Western New York is thriving and the need for quality makeup & hair products here is key.

Currently artists are buying supplies in NY or LA at stores that offer studio services.

We want to buy in Buffalo while able to access our industry discounts.

The discounts range from 10-15% for students and up to 40% for pros.

Perhaps your vendors would support the program as we the buyers want to support you!

A list of other companies offering pro discounts

One of the greatest perks of successfully completing Beauty School are the many Pro Discounts that you are finally eligible for receiving.

To my disappointment, not all were available to Canadian residents. But having a U.S. shipping address helps greatly.

So for those of you looking to apply for Pro discounts, I have conveniently compiled a list of companies that DO offer memberships to Canadians (you’re welcome). I also included the U.S. ones for those of you reading this in America and for those of you with dual-citizenship.

MAC Cosmetics
– While this is one of the few you actually have to pay for, it’s still worth it. It’s $45 CAD ($35 USD) per year and it gets you 40% off. There is also a student discount available for $15 per year and it gets you 20% off.
How to Apply: visit https://www.maccosmetics.com/macpro/cms/membership/howtoapply.tmpl

Anastasia Beverly Hills – ABH Pro
- Unfortunately this discount is only available to U.S. residents, and while there is no membership fee it entitles you to 35% off.
How to Apply: visit http://anastasiabeverlyhills.com/abh-pro-form

Smashbox
– Another generous 40% off available to professionals. The approval process takes 2 weeks but it’s totally worth it!
How to Apply: visit https://www.smashbox.com/smashbox-pro

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC)
– A very easy application process (literally an email away) and your on your way to 40% off at occmakeup.com

How to Apply: visit http://occmakeup.com/pages/occ-pro follow instructions on what credentials to email in at pro@occmakeup.com

Face Atelier
– One of the few companies out there that offers an incredible sample program which allows you to try a product sample for $1.00 before committing to the entire bottle.

How to Apply: visit https://www.faceatelier.com/proartists/ and fill out the online form.

Cozzette
– At 30% off Cozzette brushes just became that much more affordable. As someone who uses them everyday, they really are great quality and I have yet to see them shed. Application process is really easy, I was approved in 1 day.

How to Apply: visit http://www.roquecozzette.com/professional-discount-request/ create an account and then register for the Pro discount.

NARS
– Available to students and recent grads (25% off) or professional artists (30-40% off); depending on credentials you have available.

How to Apply: Fill out this form http://demandware.edgesuite.net/aaoy_prd/on/demandware.static/Sites-US-Site/Sites-US-Library/default/v1422052102877/Nars_Pro.pdf mail it to the address indicated on the bottom of the form with your credentials.

While the discount is available to online orders, it is also beneficial because there is a NARS boutique in the Forum Shoppes in Vegas.

Cinema Secrets
– Makers of the world’s best brush cleaner (no I’m not exaggerating) their discount is available to students and professionals. Cinema Secrets offers a 30% discount on their own line of products and 15% off on all non-Cinema Secret products.

Frends Beauty
– Probably the industry’s most generous discount is at Frends Beauty. If you’ve been to IMATS then you know they carry everything from makeup to special fx products to bags and everything in between.
They recently began carrying Makeup Forever as well, discounts are available online at frendsbeauty.com or in store. Oh, and did I mention they ship to Canada?

How to Apply: visit http://www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/cms/pro/bobbipro_apply.tmpl#/i.7acsfysee09s3a

Stila
– A great brand offering 40% for professionals. Only caveat…they don’t accept Paypal or Canadian credit cards. I still got approved for the program, but unfortunately struggle with trying to pay for my orders.
But if you’re a cross border shopper with a U.S. bank account then sign up! Every-so-often they have a sale where they offer 60% off EVERYTHING.

How to Apply: visit http://www.stilacosmetics.com/text/content/proartist/files/PROART_INDUSTRY.pdf

I have been a makeup artist & hairstylist in the Film Industry for over 25 years. I started my career in Buffalo, NY with moves to Toronto, Miami and 2 decades in Los Angeles.

I am now back in Buffalo, NY and loving it. My only desire is to have a pro hub for the fabulous artists located here. In addition to our locals, it would be great to offer your products to pros coming in town on features rather than relying solely on the NY & LA studio services.

Please find a link below to my work.
