3 Beauty Industry Perks You Can Access in Makeup School

An IBI graduate & MAKEUP FOREVER intern meets with some of the brand’s ambassadors.

In makeup school you’ll learn everything you need to succeed at the cutting-edge of today’s beauty industry. You’ll develop the skills clients look for and earn the certification employers trust. At the International Beauty Institute (IBI), our students even gain access to other perks such as internships, passes, and opportunities in addition to their diplomas and certificates. These beauty bonuses help IBI grads experience the highest standard of professionalism in the beauty industry today, alongside successful and passionate makeup artists. If you pursue this path at IBI, you’ll be poised to stand out on the employment scene and start your career where you belong: at the top! Here are three of the professional perks you can access in makeup school:

1. IBI Makeup School Grads Are Eligible for M·A·C PRO Status

After graduating from IBI makeup artistry courses, you’ll be qualified to launch a career as a makeup artist for a wide range of clients and employers: from stage and theatre companies to bridal parties to film/TV special effects teams and beyond. At the highest level of professionalism in each of these fields, you’ll find M·A·C cosmetics. As makeup fans like you are probably well aware, M·A·C offers a comprehensive selection of high-quality, professional makeup products. Upon graduation, IBI grads are eligible to enter into the highest class of MAC professional membership as a card-carrying M·A·C Pro. The M·A·C PRO card will give you access to the brand’s master classes, makeup workshops, professional development opportunities, industry magazine subscriptions, artist tips, and more. M·A·C PROs are recognized in over 30 countries worldwide, and invited to networking opportunities in members-only locations everywhere from New York City to London, England to Tokyo, Japan. Perhaps most exciting is the significant discounts PRO holders receive on all M·A·C brand products and the free shipping on cosmetic orders over $100. These discounts will come in handy when stocking your professional kit! As M·A·C puts it: “The PRO program offers the makeup professional a direct link to the M·A·C world.” With the right training and makeup school certification, this world will be at your fingertips.

2. Grads Become Eligible for MAKE UP FOR EVER Backstage Cards

IBI has an ongoing relationship with one of the top professional companies in the industry: the elite beauty brand MAKE UP FOR EVER (MUFE). Every one of our graduates gets complementary (read: free!) access to the brand’s own discount program. This involves exclusive product previews, newsletters featuring the latest in industry trends and techniques, and access to professionals-only events and educational development opportunities. And as a professional, working makeup artist, you’ll receive 40% off all products in MUFE boutiques and online. For example, professionals buy the MUFE Nudes Volume 2 Artist Shadow Palette for $93 instead of $156. That’s a discount worth working for.

3. Students Can Intern with MUFE after Their Makeup Artistry Courses

In the spirit of saving the best for last: upon completion of International Beauty Institute’s makeup artistry courses, you can put your new skills to the test in your own internship with MAKE UP FOR EVER! The IBI/MUFE Internship Program is designed to give makeup artistry students an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at what goes on back-stage at professional makeup artist events, trainings, and more. With this internship you’ll also get the opportunity to work with MUFE retailer Sephora and build professional relationships with leaders in the Sephora/MUFE community. In the words of IBI graduate and MUFE intern Mariella: “It was such an incredible experience!”
