How To: Building Your Make Up Kit

Building your professional make up kit can be daunting.

You always wonder "Should I have this? Or this? Do I need this?"

I've decided to help with all the pre kit worries and create a list of some of the must have items that you need to have in your kit.

Whether you're a beginner or have a full kit and are looking for some more things to fill, this post is the perfect place to start.

1. Too Faced Foundation

I would recommend getting a variety of colours. You don't need every single one. Just get the basic light, medium and darks and then that way you can mix them to match your clients skin tone.

I would recommend:
- Porcelain
- Ivory
- Warm Nude
- Warm Beige

This foundation is also great for all skin types especially oilys. Drys work well with it too

2. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

3. Mascara Spooleys

4. Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Wiz

Again, I would recommend a variety of colours as not everyone has the same brow colour or suits a certain colour.

Colours to get:
- Soft brown
- Medium brown
- Deep brown

5. Anastasia Beverley Hills Cream Contour Kit

You could just buy the Light version as it seems to work well with all skin tones

6. Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminiser

7. Jessup Brush Set or Sigma Brush Set

Depending on your budget. It's a good idea though to invest in a killer brush set. If you can't though, Jessup Brushes are amazing too

8. Make Up Geek Starter Kit Eye Palette

9. Mac Pro Lip Palette

Great starter: Select Plums

10. Anastasia Beverley Hills Illuminator

Must haves: So Hollywood & Peach Nectar

11. NARS Pressed Powder

The colour 'Beach' is a great starting point and is multi functional

12. Stila One Step Correct Primer

13. NARS Cheek Studio Palette

This palette is great as it has bronzers, highlighters and blushes all in one!

14. Mario Badescu Facial Spray

This is a multi use spray as well as it can be used as a primer, setting spray or brush spray for more pigmented make up applications

15. Stila Eye Liner Smudge Pot

16. Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

17. Urban Decay Naked Palette

I recommended number 3 & the Smokey Palette

18. Hourglass Panoramic Long Wear Lip Pencil

Have your basics such as:
- Canvas (Nude)
- Ballet (Pink)
- Raven (Red)

19. Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Wipes

20. Mecca Cosmetica Brush With Success 

An amazing quick fix brush cleaner & sanitiser for when you're on the go or in between clients and can't wash your brushes properly

And there you have it. Some really great products to have in your kit for either the kit beginner or the kit extraordinaire
