Building a freelance makeup artist kit is somewhat of an art.
The way I like to decide how to build a kit is based on what type of makeup I'll be doing, for whom for what and what purpose the makeup will serve; is it a fashion show? Is it a photo shoot? Is it for the prom or a wedding? Each particular type of makeup style calls for different ingredients products and kit needs.
I start building my kit from the face, starting from what products I need first, to last. I start with cleansers toners moisturizers and primer then I move on to color corrector, concealer, foundation blush, bronzer, highlighter and finishing spray.
The easiest way to break this down is into skin types. Dry oily and combination of course there is a normal skin type but usually normal skin types can fall into one of these categories as well...
Another way I'd like to decide how to build my kit is based on the skin tones of people I will be doing, ages as well as their makeup needs. If will I be doing makeup on teenagers with oily skin and acne or middle aged women with more dry your skin types or 30 somethings with combination skin. I also like to decide whether or not my kit will need to be an on-the-go kit or will I be staying on set....
Some other factors to take into consideration is Air brush/waterproof and special effects makeup as well as makeup for body and non facial features....
The best products you can have in your freelance makeup artist kit will be multi purpose products products that can be used in a pallet, great for ALL skin types... as well as products that do not necessarily have to come from the makeup profession; the reason I stress this is because it will save you time and money and space regarding your makeup kit....
I recommend buying a lot of your items from places such as dollar stores and wholesale purchase areas because you will be able to save money on items such as pallets (which can be found in art stores) q-tips, sponges, baby wipes & makeup storage (which can be found in dollar stores).
Another fantastic place to utilize when building your freelance makeup kit is the hardware store. There you can find all types of bags, cases and makeup belts that are sometimes used in the carpentry profession, and they end up being very helpful and inexpensive.....
There are several ways to make some of the items you already have in your makeup collection kit friendly, such as depositing eyeshadow, blush and face powders... you can also deposit lipstick and certain cream formulated foundation...
I guess the best thing about makeup is that it is an art, and not a science. There are very many ways to save money time and space while becoming the best makeup artist possible. This can be done without spending all of your money in professional makeup stores.
I really love the fact that there are so many ways to make your makeup kit not only professional but personal to who you are, as a person and an artist. ..
have fun and beat those faces honey..
