A friend got in touch with me the other day and I was surprised to hear from her that the school that I've been eyeing to enroll in requires their student to only use the MAC starter kit. No offense but I think these students should be given the option to use other brands as well. They will never learn how to work a lip/blush/whatever product unless they've tried other brands and consistencies. I don't believe in buying more high end brands to produce very good results. Why then would we call a Makeup Artist an Artist if this will be the case?
Just an early thought.
