Makeup Artist Series: Makeup Artist Kit Haul

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another haul!  I've been on a shopping spree lately lol.  I have some weddings coming up so I decided to take the time and restock my kit.

Check out the video!


Lashes from www.RockeyTrading.com
I picked up 5 dozen pairs of my favorite lash which is in the style 747s.  A lot of brands carry this style, this one happens to be Stardel.  I picked up 5 dozen because it's my go-to lash on a lot of clients and I usually run out of them quick.  They're always out of stock when I try to buy them in bulk so I picked up a bunch!  I also picked up 1 dozen of the #213 style which is pretty popular as well.  I got 2 dozen of the 747m style which is a little longer than the 747s, for those who might a bit more drama.  This is the best deal ever too...$12.95 for 1 dozen quality lashes. 
 Don't be fooled by some of the ebay bulk lashes from Hong Kong because oftentimes they're synthetic and you don't get the styles you want. I also picked up 2 nylon capes.  This comes in handy when you're doing makeup so you don't get any on your client.  I usually buy in doubles to have one in my traincase and one in my studio.  This retailed for just $5.50 each.  If you go to Sally Beauty they're usually at least $10 to $15.

MAC Pro Online
I placed an order to MAC Pro for some items for my kit and myself.  I've had these items in my cart for a while and decided to finally bite the bullet since I have some gigs coming up.  A lot of these shades are women of color friendly as that is my main clientele.
Here's what I got:
Shadows in handwritten, mulch, saddle, sable, arena
Blush in Blunt
Travel Bottle Set in 2oz
Lip Pencils in Nightmoth, Half-Red and Currant
Face and Body Mixing Medium
For myself, I picked up:
Duo Sharpener, Matchmaster Foundation 6.0, Pro Longwear Concealer in NC42 and NC30 and Gingerly Blush

Mascara Wands
You can't have enough mascara wands in your collection.  I got a good deal on these from ebay, 100 wands for about $10, including shipping.  The only downside is that it takes a while to ship since it's coming from Hong Kong.
 

Dollar Store
You can pick up some essential items from the dollar store including hand sanitizer, bobby pins, and wipes for $1 each!

Wal-Mart
I picked up some basics such as waterproof mascara and clear mascara for brows and yes, more wipes!

Hope this helps, Happy Friday!

Thanks! I love to see what other keep in their case. I have just recently started to freelance- mostly wedding. What foundations do you use? I use ben nye hd pallet- I have a MAC face and body that I really love and would eventually like to switch to all face and body

Thanks for sharing! I have been looking for a clear mascara to give more shape to my eyebrows. Which brand do you use?
