This reminded me of something that happened years ago. I had a new friend who was doing makeup at a HUGE 2-day event. I used to do m/u professionally, so she asked if I wanted to join her as her assistant. There was going to be another professional MUA there too. Then my friend had something come up, and asked if I would just take her place. I'd get $50 per face. So we get there, and I'm bangin' faces out since we're on a time crush. I was doing 2-3 faces for every one of the other girl's. Next thing I know, the director of the m/u team pulls me aside, says the other girl feels since I'm not a professional MUA, I shouldn't be making as much money as her. I was ordered not to do any more. Even though we shared a room (btw she was from out of town and I hosted her at my house for two nights), the other girl didn't talk to me the rest of the event, and THEN tried to have the room billed to me! My friend was so embarrassed about the whole thing she ended up ghosting me.
