    My face tends to turn bright red while I'm dancing, making me look more tired. I find the full coverage foundation does a pretty good job of hiding the redness, making me appear fresher and more energetic. ;)

    Maybe you could tell the MAC Pro people that you're a model...for ballgowns?

    maybe good idea. But if you say you are model, do they require you to show them a model contract?

    Studio Tech IS NOT full coverage they are 2 different products. The pro line is much more pigmented than the regular consumer line.

    The pro line is normally used for photo shoots, runway work, tv etc ... it provides maximum pigment and is built to last under all the lights and heat and such ... so perfect for ballroom comps.

    Their regular line is great too. I just wanted to let you know what the pro line was amied at.

    Also to get the pro card ... it really is simple. If you are a dancer send in your info and business card (shouldn't all pros have one? if not make one on the computer and print it out) and pics of you at comp and the money and photo id. It takes a wee bit to get but worth it. AND the discount is used on almost ALL MAC products.

    i suggest to go to speckta dot net (an all make up forum mostly mac-aholics with GREAT makeup ideas and tutorials) and do a search about the pro card. Many of the ones that have the card there give you tips on how to actually get it and what you need to have to send in to get it in detail.

    ALSO ... make sure you have a good facial cleanser and get ALL the makeup off. MAC, Ben Nye, Makeup Forever are all very pigmented and pore clogging. They are all makeup lines used by the fashion, tv industry. SO .... use a good cleanser, toner and moisturizer! That way you will really keep you skin healthy.

    Side note ... when putting on said foundations ... they may look "heavy" or cakey at first ... it is because it needs to "settle" onto your skin and acclimate itself to give you that polished airbrush look (with the use of great brushes too)

    be careful of that since makeup is a product that is consumable ... it has a time limit that it actually is good.

    Oil-Free Foundation: 1 year
    Cream or Compact Foundation: 18 months
    Concealer: 12-18 months
    Powder: 2 years
    Blush and Bronzer: 2 years
    Cream Blush: 12-18 months
    Powder Eye shadow: 2 years
    Cream Eye shadow: 12-18 months
    Eyeliner: 2 years
    Liquid eyeliner: 3-6 months
    Mascara: 3 months
    Lipstick: 2 years
    Lip liner: 2 years
    Lip gloss: 18-24 months
    Nail Color: 1 year

    If you are using natural cosmetics, these should be thrown out sooner. Regular cosmetics contain ingredients that do help prolong shelf life. But of course natural cosmetics do not. Please check with your favorite natural store for the information on the cosmetics you love.


    Also doing a sniff test helps ... LOL

    so the MAC full coverage is creamy? so it has a life approx. 18 months?

    I called the pro store at 7 west 22nd Street about pro card; they say I must provide some credential or proof as ballroom dancer + paying $35 annual fee, then I can get 30% off for the whole year.

    I need to think if I really want to go thru the work of photocopy my dancephotos or awards ribbons to send to them, depends on how many MAC products I'm gonna to use, if full coverage is the only thing I use from them (I also love Urban Decay, Make up forever, Lancome, Ben Nye, CD, etc), plus some drugstore brands;)...but certainly worth the pro card if I use majority of MAC products for comp makeup.

    Can't hurt ... OOOOOOOOOOO you could show your membership to the NDCA and a few photos. Membership counts. Shows you are a registered competing individual. and hey 30% is worth it. PLUS it may help IF you purchase other MAC stuff.

    If not eh .... we have the info now right? LOL

    on a web site is 40%? :confused:

    40% for Makeup artists. others in the "show business" field it is 30%

    preference goes to make up professionals as they are technically "promoting" MAC every time they use it on someone's face. ... not to "others" LOL

    probably I'll pass the pro card this time since I've already bought bunch of makeups from Sephora, I've already got a new UD eyeshadow palette, benefit stick foundation, Clinique blush; I'm quite set for a while. But for sure I'll check out full coverage, if I like it and works well for me and I decide to continue re-purchasing, I'll think about the pro card.
