MAKE UP FOR EVER is expanding their Backstage Card Program. Originally created to offer product discounts to make-up artists, the program will now also provide industry professionals with VIP access to continuing education, special events, product previews and insider information. (This offer will continue to offer the Backstage card with no annual fee.)
The goal of this expansion is to provide up-and-coming and established artists with strategic benefits and services that will enable them to build new relationships, continue honing their skills and become even more successful in their respective careers.
The Backstage Card Program is extended to professional make-up artists and beauty students, as well as a newly expanded list of industry professionals.
