The Total Pro is the complete package and will give you the competitive edge over other makeup artists in the industry because you will be able to offer four skills rather than one. Many clients are looking for makeup artists who are qualified in more than just makeup. This keeps their budget down but means you can increase your fee as you are offering more than one skill.
