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

SCAMS- VERY IMPORTANT- MUST READ!!!
If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck... it probably is a scam

SCAMS:
so tyically the rule is, if it sounds too good to be true.. it probably is. I think it is very important for the MUAs, Stylists and Hair Stylists out there to know that the popular scams can be directly targeted at us as well: Some of the most popular ones are the following. The BIG INDICATOR of these is that they ask for personal information right off the bat AND they will send you a money order for MUCH more than the inflated price that they have offered you and request that you keep your portion and send the remaining back.

Fashion Show: Usually by a designer that you have never heard of, who is showing in NY, but not during fashoin week. Wedding scam, pay you by money order and some tragic event will happen on the day of the wedding and they will want a refund.

Here are some sample letters:

THE WEDDING SCAM:
Hello Dear,

How are you doing today???

I am Sandra Janet an architect by profession . Am about to tie my Knot with my hearthrob Roy a financial analyst by profession.
Am seeking a professional make -up artist who can add a special touch to make me a Damsel for my D-Day, at my wedding day coming on soon,the location shall be in Glasgow,Scotland in UK.on 28th/10/06 (by 10:00) and The time period shall be for 4 hours.My skin colour is afro / carribean , so as to give you clue on the make up that will suit me.
However there is an arrangement for accomodation, in a very suitable atmosphere. Please kindly let us know if you will be available and also we will like to know the cost of the Make -Up.
Also as we shall be responsible for all the expenses like airflight,hotel etc.Kindly get back to me with the total cost, inorder to tell my wedding planner so as to arrange the payment to book for D-Day..
