What percentage of MUA s on this site, are full time insured qualified professionals on this site?

How does this compare with models and photographers?

I was just wondering....

Moderator Comment : Due to H&S and DoC requirements these days Purestorm only approves MUA applications
from those who attest they are trading as qualified (diploma/ degree) MUAs or on recognised Further Education course.
We do not accept applications from those with just beautician, hair sylist, nail technician or hair extension certificates.

It is a very difficult answer because of the huge number of members which is difficult to cense.  In my personal modest guess, I think the % of professional MUA's on here is bigger than the % of professional models and  photographers although their number in absolute is smaller.This assumptions goes back to the fact that the few times in the past I tried to make a a team for some TF project, I actually never managed to raise MUA on a TF basis and those who applied were all declared fully potential unwilling to do TF.I  have instead met a large % of amateur-semi pro models.
I was always very impressed by the skill level of the MUA used. 

This is only my personal opinion so feel free to differRegardsM

By full time do you mean those who derive the majority of their income from doing photographic makeup such that, after tax, they make a profit equal to or above the minimum wage?  Or are you including those who suplement their income working on make-up counters, beauty salons etc?  If the former I suggest the number would be quite low just as it is for models and photographers.

A quick look at the "status" of UK mua's on here says that;

13.9% (55) amateaurs
23.7% (94) semi-pro
62.4% (247) professionals

Then again, that's not likely too be accurate as a we all know that not all members are very honest with their and/or don't really understand what they mean. And as Paul says, it depends on how you define a full time professional.

I'm an amateur MUA on here, and I applied for my MUA account with proper documentation too. I'm insured as well, weirdly, but I don't make money from it. And in fact I've not doing a makeover for a very long time since starting. Life just got in the way!
