As a makeup artist, there are a few things (besides makeup) that I would be lost without. If you are a makeup artist or plan on being one in the future, here a my 3 Makeup Kit Essentials.
1. The Face Chart
Planning is everything in the makeup businesses. Develop and perfect your skill with Face Charts. It’s also really fun.
Started by an amazing Youtuber and everything genius, Dustin Hunter, these are the best face charts out on the market. They are made with textured paper durable enough for cream and powder products without peeling your work. They are available for a very reasonable price on Thefacechart.com.
The 30 pack runs $12, 100 pack loose bulk sheets $36, and finally the 40 pack eye chart $9. You can also get the combo pack Face/Eye for $18

2. Disposable Mascara Wands
If you are doing someones makeup, the only hygienic way is with disposable mascara wands. I will usually by 3 separate brands of mascara: Waterproof, Regular, and regular back-up. I cut the wands that come with them (so I won’t be tempted to use them) and pack it all away in my kit. When you’re done – toss the used one away. I got these off Amazon.com but you can find them cheap at EBay.com or beauty supply stores.
