You need to obtain one from the director of the shoots. If they don't supply one to you (or to any members of the crew for that matter), then you just don't get one. Maybe you could inquire to the directors/producers you have worked with in the past?

Did my last reply not show up? What I had said was that you need to contact the director/producer of the shoots and see if they had many any out for the crew (you are part of that crew...so you should have gotten one, but perhaps it slipped thier mind). Sometimes smaller budget/amateurish productions don't supply them. I would inquire, it can't hurt!

At first it's not easy.  It took me almost 3 yrs just to get my MUFE card.  I actually JUST got it.  I needed a tear sheet that had my name on it and I finally did.  Took a while but hey, not everything in this industry is easy. 

Now if only Sephora had a MUA discount card.  Trust me, I mention it everytime I go in there (which is like, hmmm, every week!)

the Sephora Beauty Insider Program helps... you get perks, discounts, emails, and such. - I've saved a ton of money already, especially with the online 'deals' that they send me in my email.

Like already mentioned, CRC and OCC will accept an online website/portfolio. It's not hard to make one, if you haven't already.

Frends Beauty Supply and Royal and Langnickel will also take a website as an application into their program; between those four stores, you really should be pretty set.

Here's a stupid question...
Much of the work I have done is for online "modelling" (*cough*yeah, check profile for what I mean) sites and web-based clothing catalogues.
What exactly would qualify as a tearsheet in that case?

A piece of paper with your name on it. As a teenager I interned at several magazines and local free newspapers. When they allowed me to write a paragraph on something ( anything)  my name was printed in INK on Paper with MY story underneath. Now many years and many moves and a few lost (unpaid) storage rooms later... I have no proof of the small articles I wrote.

But I'm sure someone else has a better definition of a tearsheet.

Until you gather enough documentation to quality for Pro Cards/Discounts I cannot recommend enough using Ebates and to shop online for your kit supplies.

There are a lot of websites and online stores through Ebates, including Sephora, Ulta, drugstore.com/beauty.com, DermStore.com, OpenSky, not to mention many of the cosmetic lines direct websites themselves (Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, Kiehl's, NARS, Tarte, to name a few).   

You can get 4%-8% cash back on your purchases, sometimes as much as 12-15% cash back (depending on sale/promotion/website, etc.).  Yes, it is not a full 20-40% pro discount but I figure it is a start and better than nothing.

You could always try buying off of allcosmeticwholesale.com or when hautelook.com has sales on makeup, you can get some great deals on those sites. Awesome for building up your kit.

Nyx do a pro discount of 20%. I just phoned inglot and they said to apply you just need to pop in the store with proof that you are a MUA. The usual stuff, tears, cards, call sheets etc. Andddd it's instant...and free !

This is for those of us who have yet to acquire that "documentation" of proof.  Those of us who don't have tear sheets, or call sheets, or anything of that nature (yet). smile

Yes your right, however...I went into Inglot today and got my 20% discount. They don't put alot of information on their website about the pro discounts for the UK branch. But they LITERALLY just wanted to see my business card. Like I had my port, tear sheets, buisness card, work briefs but the lady just said " don't worry about that, we'll just need your card". Hopefully they are that flexible in the US too smile

Mac wanted more than a business card, I went there with 2 tear sheets, a assignment brief, invoice, portfolio and business cards. They said I had alot of stuff so I guess they aren't that fussed, maybe ? . It's £25 for membership here in the uk and your able to use ur temp card instantly with 40% off.

Oh yeah, they both asked for ID ! Remember to bring your ID with you !

I just started doing make-up and that's why I do not have a MUA profile set up yet. I have applied to many discount programs and I am currently waiting for replies. I am expecting many no's which I am okay with. One thing I can highly recommend is to sign up for the points programs through Ulta and Sephora. They send you tons of discounts and you get points on all of your purchases. Today I went to Ulta with my points and a 20% off coupon. I got over $90 worth of product for $65! Great deal for us newbies trying to build up credentials.
