Beauty Linked does not endorse any Member, or Artist Services. Any references to a Member being “verified” (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Beauty Linked about any Member, including of the Member’s identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to book an appointment with a Makeup Artist, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person.
