Being a makeup artist is one of the biggest and brightest parts of my life. I spend the majority of my time doing makeup not on myself, but others, so I thought I’d start sharing my kit faves, what I’m loving to use on clients.
These kit faves posts will include products that are just really doing the damn thing for me at work, giving my clients and on set talent great results.
You might find my kit faves helpful as a makeup artist yourself, or as a beauty aficionado, curious about what products professional makeup artists actually use and love.
When time is not on my side, working on set or with large wedding parties, I need a way to get color, hydration and shine on lips and quickly. The color JoAnn is perfect. It’s a blue-based shade that makes teeth look white and is bold without being goth or bright.
I highly recommend this and will be purchasing additional colors for my kit now.
I always have these colors in my kit: Nude Beige, Nude Pink, Ever, Natural, Peekaboo Natural, Mauve, Nude Truffle
The original shade, Fenty Glow, really does look good on every single person I put it on. Plus, it smells like fruity bubblegum, making it an easy kit fave. I included Gloss Bomb in this yearly favorites post.
Jean is the perfect soft champagne cream shadow. I love the moussey texture, non-sticky sensation and soft glow it gives the lids. I also reach for the shade Bette for a beautiful amber bronze eye.
This eyeshadow is my go-to, inner corner highlight and lid color for fair skin tones that want a light, ethereal eye look. It also makes a beautiful highlighter on fair skin tones. Kitten never steers me wrong.
These powders really do create a soft-focus, diffused light appearance on everyone I put them on. Often thought of as a highlighter, use them more as a final veil over your face for that filtered IRL effect. I talked about these powder in a monthly favorites post.
I’ve fallen in love with these tinted balms for getting color and serious hydration on the lips, with a bit of opacity for that natural look so many of my clients want. Perfect Nude is pretty perfect and Rhubarb is the most happy pink that lights up anyone’s face.
