Photographer or Model: Hello, can we invite you for x-deal photoshoot?
Makeup Artist: Sure ! Who is the model? and Photographer?
Note: I do xdeal/collaboration photoshoot hair and makeup for free if i will get benefits like good portfolios or free makeup loots.It means that a model should be good looking ,pretty face,beautiful and the photographer should have winning shots/portfolio.Ex-deal shoot where both models,makeup artist,hairstylist,stylist, photographers are using the images for Portfolio Build-up.
For clients we don’t do TY service.Dropping your famous friend name is not helping.
Photographer: Can you do x-deal makeup for my model friend in the car show event?
Me as Makeup Artist: I’m sorry but I don’t do hair and makeup service for free.For sure the organizer of the event have budget for the makeup artist then,right? Please understand that our makeup did not fall from the sky.We travel by car,plane,boat,ferry back and forth to get to our destination. There’s such a thing called gas,toll fees,driver’s tip,personal assistant fees etc. There’s also car insurance and the car itself, which we have to pay for. For makeup artists who commute, taxis cost a lot of money but sometimes we don’t have no choice but to ride taxis.Ang malas pa niyan kung manakawan kami.Ever rode an MRT /LRT /Jeepney carrying heavy equipment in peak hours? That’s no way for me.I don’t want to get double stress when i arrive on location.Is not a good idea right? How i wish riding cab or taxi is for free.
If we walk,Okay – heavy and bulky makeup bag in tow results in injury.
Carrying our heavy equipment is not that easy.
Not to mention oh I forgot we need meals too?Are you guys going to provide foods for my team?
In a car show or pageant event if I do free makeup for the model do you know how much time I waste ? I also waste my energy and makeup skills.

Me as makeup artist: I still say NO. I am quota on doing free makeover.I already explain that I demand TF for makeup artist. Name dropping of your super model friends is not helping. Thank you!
