I CREATED THIS THREAD AS A RESOURCE FOR EVERYBODY. THERE IS A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE, READILY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS. BEFORE YOU POST, SEE IF IT'S ALREADY BEEN POSTED

***Contributions of links and information are welcome, however, let's keep this thread informative and on track, so we don't have to lock it up to preserve it.***

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SUGGESTIONS OR DISCUSS THE FAQ THREAD, PLEASE GO TO THE FAQ DISCUSSION THREAD. WE WANT THIS TO BE EASY TO NAVIGATE AND NOT HAVE IT GET OFF TRACK.

THE STYLIST FORUM FAQ DISCUSSION THREAD: comments, questions, complaints about the FAQs go here:

The Stylist Forum FAQ Discussion Thread
http://www.modelmayhem.com/p.php?thread_id=81624

I understand that there are a lot of newer members to the site that might not entirely understand or know how to use the search function, which is fine.

So this thread is for us to post links to topics that have already been discussed (i am not talking about once or twice... I am talking NUMEROUS times).

So if you are looking for threads on things like:
- Basic product recommendations (foundation, brushes, mascara, etc...)
-MUA/Stylist/Hair Stylist wants from TFP
- the MAC boycott
- advice
-how much should i charge
- artist discounts
etc..

and so on, look here first (and please contribute links if you have them).

The links do not have to be all from MM if you have a website or link that you think is exceptionally useful, but this is just a general FAQ, to help us not to have to answer the same question 10 times and to help the people who ask the questions not to get reamed for asking the same question over and over again.

Mary also has a very extensive FAQ section on her page that covers everything from make-up school, product recommendations to business practices: http://www.themakeupartist.com/portfolios/qa.php#2

Kevin-James Bennet has also compiled a list of what is in his kit:
