AOFM Kit Must Haves

Kit Must Haves for the Professional Makeup Artist

Here is a list of products I believe (collected from me trying products and listening to other artists during my time at AOFM) every artist should have in their kit or at least try and see if they like them. 

Applicators and Tools
Cotton Pads
Wedge Sponges
Blending Sponge
Pampers Baby Wipes
Ziploc bags (keep kit tidy, put dirty brushes in)
Great assortment of Brushes-- at least enough to do 3 peoples faces without having to wash a brush-- check out my previous post on the best brushes to get
Shu Uemura or Shiseido Lash Curler 
Hand Sanitizer
Brush Cleaner
Nail File
Nail Polish Remover


NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base (must for weddings)
Laura Mercier Radiance Primer (must for weddings)
MAC Face and Body-- Personally I don't use them very often, but I am glad that I do and most makeup artists I have met say that it is a must for a professional makeup artist's kit

Blushers & Bronzers & Highlighters


Essie Polishes: pale pink, white, black, red and nude
Seche Vite Top coat-- super fast drying for a time crunch

I hope this is helpful for all you fellow artists and aspiring artists!

What products do you find you can't live without!

Enjoy & Be Beautiful!
