Makeup Artist Kit for Beginners

Hi Tory,

Over the last year I've been slowly getting back into doing makeup on a more professional basis, after a break from beauty therapy and doing fashion shows. So I'm pretty much building my kit up again from scratch, which can be done at a more affordable level.

These are a few tips and hints on what I've put in my kit (minus makeup!) that may help anyone else out there who's starting up as a makeup artist. If anyone has any further tips - do share!

Pouch One

  • Hand sanitizer
  • Surgical spirit
  • Witch hazel
  • Setting spray
  • Brush cleaner
  • Makeup remover
