Do you ever wonder how much does the makeup artist kit weights?... Usually a lot!
I am a big fan of using travel sized products for my makeup kit, because it saves so much space and it's way less heavy. I highly advice to try it if you are a makeup artist that needs to travel with a makeup kit too!
I have to admit that I have a bit of a problem when it comes to branded packaging. I prefer to have the original product package instead of just a plastic travel sized container you can get in most of the shops. It's because I am a very visual person and like to see everything looking aesthetically pleasing!
Most of these packages are refillable, so I just get a travel sized product once and keep refilling them from a full size container.
Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Cream is an amazing product to prep the skin before makeup. Super luxorious rich cream makes the face super hydrated and radiant.
Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow is a face primer with infused glowing particles to create a dewy look. I love using it for people with dry looking skin if I want to achieve naturally glowing skin.
Embryolisse Lait- Creme Concentre- you will see this product is almost every makeup artist kit. If I had to keep only one skin care item in my kit, this would be it. This moisturizer works on all skin types and can double up as a primer.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with aloe, cucumber and green tea is a great spray to refrech and rehydrate the skin (also smells amazing!). I usually use it prior makeup application, but works great to spray it at any time of the day.
Urban Decay All Nighter makeup spray is a must have for a long lasting makeup. Just spray few times, let it dry and the makeup will last super long.
Urban Decay De- slick makeup spray is a must not only in my professional makeup artist kit, but for personal use too. It helps the makeup last all day and also controls the oils during the day. Perfect for oily skin people like me!
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water works as a fastest priming product ever. Just spay it all over the face and you are ready for makeup application. It works both as a primer and finishing spray and adds lots of moisture and glow.
Pro Hygiene Collection Antibacterial Makeup Spray is another must have especially if you are applying makeup for other people. With just a few sprays your makeup products are sanitized and ready for clients.
Cinema Secrets Proffesional makeup brush cleaner is one of the most talked about brush cleaners in the world. I gave in, tried it and fell in love. The best brush cleaner I've ever tried: it even cleans a stubborn foundation/ concealer from the bristles and dries within seconds! From now on it's a staple in my kit. Also smells lovely!
MAC Fix + is a great spray to use both prior and after makeup application. Feels very refreshing, adds dewy healthy look and also helps to melt down the powder if you accidental applied too much.
MAC Oil Control Lotion is a very light easy absorbent lotion that actually feels a little hydrating even though it helps to control the oils. Lovely product to use prior makeup application.
Clinique Take The Day Off is one of my favorite makeup removers that will literally remove any kinds of makeup without irritating or feeling oily. The great addition to this is a safety cap on the package, so it's not going to accidentally open and leak everywhere.
