Beauty Essentials for PROs

We have so many talented makeup artists who want to make big in the business and who dream big. As starters they have limited access to products and a limited budget to start their profession. Just like ideas even the makeup products are limitless and artiste nouveau are confused of what to buy.

So I thought of dedicating an article to all pro and amateur makeup artists who want make their own stand and their own makeup kit. You need not have to get all branded stuff and invest worth lakhs of money, just by buying essentials you can start off and build your makeup case slowly and steadily. Hope this article helps..

Here’s a list of things I find perfect for a beginner: - (these are my recommendations. And that doesn’t mean its mandatory to buy what I have recommended. This article is for an Indian makeup artist who is a beginner. Others can update their kits according to the need of their clients.)

- Skin care: - Any good skin care brand helps you get a very good canvas to work on. I recommend Clinique’s Wash away gel cleanser, Mild Clarifying lotion and Moisture Surge Extended thirst relief or Moisture Sheer Tint spf 15 in Beige.

- Foundation: - MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC 40, NW 40 and NC 42 to begin as a liquid foundation. Kryolan Supra foundation palette of 24 colors for heavier makeups. Custom fit foundation colors according to needs but start off with these as basics.

- Concealer: - Clinique All about eyes concealer in No. 5 Medium Beige and No. 8 Deep Honey.

- Powder: - Clinique Blended Loose Powder in no. 4 and no. 8 and MAC Prep+Prime Powder

- Blush: - Some universal shades like Clinique Blushing blush in Smoldering Plum and Bashful blush, MAC Powder blush in Tender Gold, Sunbasque, Coygirl and Peachykeen.

- Eyeshadow Primer from Oriflame

- Face Primer from Clarins Instant Smooth Perfect Touch

- Eyeshadows colors from MAC in Smut, Carbon, Tempting, Sumptuous Olive, Gleam, Shroom, Nylon, Amber Lights, All that Glitter and Silver Ring.

- Mascara in MAC Zoomlash Black or Clinique High Impact Mascara

- Eye liners Clinique Quickliner for eyes in Really Black and Dark Chocolate

- Brows from Clinique Super Fine liner for Brows in Deep Brown

- Lipsticks in some basic colors like red, pink, beige, brown, burgundy and coral or orange.

- Lipglosses in peach, pink, nude, beige, gold and brown.

- NYX brushes as they are a good substitute to MAC brushes and have equal professional touch.

The more you buy, the better it gets. But one needs to start some where.
