Makeup on my client, Jenny tonight for her birthday! Awful lighting, but I’m really happy with it.

I figured I’d make a post about what came in my makeup artistry school kit and then make another one on my pro kit later on. Our supplies/kit consisted of our school uniform shirts, a train case, and our basic makeup/disposables/tools.
The train case is by Seya and retails for around $80. Nothing too fancy. I’ll be replacing this with my MAC Zuca bag after our fundamental makeup course is over.
As a makeup artist, sanitary procedures are a must. To prevent contamination issues, for certain things you will use disposable tools such as these that came in our kit. (wedge sponges, powder puffs, cotton rounds, disposable mascara applicators, disposable pointed q-tips)
We also got (and this is probably the only part of the kit I really like) a double sided palette of Make Up For Ever and Kryolan eyeshadows.
We also got a brush roll with 15 brushes that I haven’t used yet. I don’t know whether these Crown brushes are good quality or not, so I can’t make a judgement on them yet. However I feel more comfortable with my Sigma brushes and brush belt, so I’ll be replacing that as well. This will be a good brush set to have as a back up in case I have to do more than one job in a day.
Then there are the various smaller items. (99% alcohol, mineral primers, gloss, eye makeup remover, eyeliner, lip pencils, brow pencils, mascara, and a sharpener)
We also got 4 Cinema Secrets palettes and two loose powders.
Lastly, we got a Kryolan blush palette, a Kryolan metal palette and spatula, and a lip palette.
Before I realized I needed to buy a new pack of lashes, I was already done with the basics of this look. I used Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil in the color “Brunette” to outline my brows, and finished them off with matte eyeshadows in medium and dark brown shades followed by a clear brow gel to keep them in place. I used a red toned brown as my transition shade in the upper crease followed by a dark brown matte shadow in the actual crease. On the lid I used the color “Dope” from the Vice 2 palette. I did my winged gel liner first and then added depth using the shade “Blackout” and blended it all together with a MAC 217 brush.
