"Really Tana? This is fucking disgusting @tanamongeau pay your artists."
Tana Mongeau is just out here asking for free things and everyone's dragging her for it. The YouTuber hopped on Instagram to ask if any of her followers would like to be her personal makeup artist in Los Angeles. Sounds like a pretty cool gig, right?
Tana Mongeau's wild outfit won Coachella this year
Well, sadly, the position isn't paid. That's right, the successful candidate will just have to pay their bills in "promo".
BUT, and it's a big one, you can try out any look you want on her. Tana is your "canvas", just make sure you're available round the clock, okay?
Tana's Instagram Story read: "Looking for an MUA in LA that would wanna work together frequently in exchange for an abundance of promo!
"Wanted to get my makeup done more often for simpler stuff/work. You can also use my face to try out new looks/be your canvas for your Instagram!! We can always try new stuff. Looking for someone available a lot/flexible/willing to accept mainly promo as compensation."
Well, at least she's being honest I guess…
Let's be honest, Tana isn't exactly broke. According to Super Hub, she's reportedly worth $1 million aged just 20. So, yeah, she could probably swing that money an aspiring MUA's way.
Sure, she has 3.3 million Instagram followers and over 4 million YouTube subscribers, so for a makeup artist looking to break the industry it would probably be a great gig. But, no compensation at all? Not even some merch?
People couldn't believe she would even dare to ask for free makeup services without barely a thing in return.

Tell me why @tanamongeau is a MILLIONAIRE and is asking for a daily makeup artist in exchange for promo?? PROMO?! Girl, you absolutely make more than enough money to pay artists for their art. pic.twitter.com/pM2ThG0Btg— Kaylee Peterson (@kp3t3z) April 26, 2019
@tanamongeau you have a lot of balls asking for an MUA to work for free in exchange for exposure... that is such an insult and EXPOSURE/PROMO doesn’t pay our bills...honestly I’m sure you can afford to pay for each makeup session, so don’t be one of those who want to pay w/ promo pic.twitter.com/VtYdnlvcG1— Sara | AJ (@sarajoliexo) April 26, 2019

Tana has now clapped back and insisted that she has makeup artists constantly try to contact her, offering their services in the hope of getting some exposure.
absolutely that’s why i clarified right now that this would be primarily paid in exposure! lots of small MUA’s hit me up constantly asking me to help them gain exposure not to pay so i’m doing just that!!— Tana Mongeau (@tanamongeau) April 26, 2019
We guess the best things in life really are free.
