There is four items some new additions , some oldies that are in my Professional Makeup Kit. I though it would be fun to share.
|How cute are these ??|
Betsey Johnson Limited Edition Kleenex ( Target Stores) - Every artist needs napkins along with paper towels, and other sanitary items handy . I love that these Kleenex are so fun young and playful just like Betsey Johnson. I feel like these designs fit my personality to a T. Another added bonus is once these are finished the boxes can be re-used for makeup storage ( there is already great ideas featured on Instagram .)
|Best Blending Brush Ever|
Blending Eye Brush by Elf Cosmetics ( Elf / Target - $1) - I can not stop raving about this brush . Do not be fooled by the super economic price , this is a top quality brush! I have this brush in my professional as well as personal kits and I absolutely love it. I have brushes from higher end brands that do the same function ( crease , transition colors , etc...) and I always and continue to REACH for this elf brush. Its always on my list of things to pick up from my local Target or the Elf Store in SoHo.
|The super sleek Brushfolio|
|My brush set-up before Brushfolio .|
Brushfolio Original The Professional Brush Stand ( Online / $40) Designed by Celebrity Makeup Artist Priscilla Ono - Prior to using this brush stand I would place my brush case upward in my train case while working . It was not so bad , but Brushfolio has made things much more efficient and easier. I am able to 1. I can carry more brushes , 2. have all my brushes standing upright where I can see them opposed to being in my train case / or laying on a table. There is a sleek patent polyurethane outer material which really gives this case a luxe appeal. I love this for my kit , and I want more to have for my personal makeup up set up and to store lip liners ( another idea I saw from another artist online). All in all, this has upgraded my brush set-up - pictures above speaks for themselves. You can check out my first impression video here.
Bronze Buffer (Online / $8) - Bronze Buffer is this innovative sponge created with the intent to "clean up" any tanning "faux-pas" ( streaking , tanner on nails and hands, etc... ) . Perfect for those working with Brides who may have gotten a tan before her big day and there may need to be some editing. As for me, I 've also discovered that this is amazing when working on editorial makeup looks involving the body - paint , glitter, body liquid highlighters , etc. I have found it resourceful to use the Bronze Buffer in those cases as well to clean up / revise any applications.
There you have it, my four must-haves for my professional kit.
