PRO TOOL KIT: STOCK UP!

Posted by STETSON CREATIVE Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Every makeup artist knows that there are an array of non-cosmetic products that are absolutely essential in the flawless application of makeup, many of which can be purchased at your local drugstore!

COTTON SWABS
Great for fixing a mistake, especially around the eyes and lips.  There are all different sizes and shapes, but my personal favorite are the ones on the long wooden sticks.

$5 - Matesse Elite at Ricky's NYC www.rickysnyc.com

COTTON ROUNDS
Whether you are applying a moisturizing serum, primer, or a makeup remover, these are an essential in every kit!

$3 - Drugstores Nationwide

COSMETIC WEDGES
These are your general all-purpose applicators for liquid makeup and come in several shapes and sizes.  I like them better than brushes for foundation because they don't streak like a foundation brush can.  Use these only once to keep bacteria away from your face.  TIP: Wet sponges before use for the smoothest application.
$3-$6 - Drugstores Nationwide

CLEANSING WIPES
There are two main types you are going to want to stock up on: ones with makeup remover, and ones with brush cleaner.  They are great for quick changes with powder color, or to remove your makeup at the end of the day/night.  

$9 - Sephora Stores www.sephora.com

BLOTTING PAPER
Whether you toss these in your bag to combat shine, or you simply use them at your vanity, they are a great way to remove excess moisture without removing or smudging your makeup.

$8.50 - Japonesque www.japonesque.com

There are a host of other fun bottles, containers, applicators, etc that makeup artists love to carry around with them, but more these are your solid basics to start out with!
