Moving on, I've been recently getting more and more people asking me to do make-up for weddings. I've never actually taken this whole make-up thing seriously as I honestly never thought I was talented enough to. However, now that I've actually agreed to do them, I now have to start putting together a "professional make-up kit". As unprofessional as it is, I know I still have a lot to learn about freelancing and that all comes with experience.
I've been looking through my collection and realized that there are some definite things that I HAVE to have specifically for my kit only. That includes, foundation, brushes, shadows lip products....basically EVERYTHING! lol. I watch Makeupbyrenren a lot and I know she does freelancing too. She always tends to know great sites that carry products that cater to MUA's or freelancers just starting out. She recently blogged about what necessities you need for a starter kit. She recommended some great sites and one of them was paintandpowderstore.com
So, I went on the site and found a few great things that I definitely thought I could find useful in starting my first make-up kit. I think this site is definitely a great site if you're a MUA or if you're just starting out. The products I bought are listed with pictures below.
|Japonesque Double-Sided Professional Lipstick Palette|
|Japonesque palette (closed)|
|Disposable Makeup Spatual w/Slant Tip|
|Deluxe Lip Gloss Disposable Applicator|
|Disposable Mascara Wands Straight Head|
|Disposable Mascara Wands Curved Head|
Please be aware that I actually haven't even used any of these products yet to try them out and see how they work. However, all the products were what I believe very decent prices, especially if you're struggling with $$$. There's also definitely A LOT more on the website that you can order and, to be honest, they have a great selection, anything from supplies to make-up. I just ordered what I thought I needed. So, again, check out that website!!
On another note, please pray for Japan as they go through this extremely devastating time. My thoughts and prayers are with them!
