My Essential Bridal Kit 2016

August 31, 2019

It always intrigues me what is in other makeup artists kit. When I first started working and advertising as a makeup artist I knew the cost of my kit would be ridiculous, I get asked a lot where do you even start? What is the minimum to get by with when doing working with a large bridal party?

So I have written this post  in a hope that it would would help out other aspiring makeup artists and list my go to products (2016) and essentials. I do use a lot of premium products but I do believe you get what you pay for with makeup.

Starting with base - for me as a Bridal makeup artist it is ALL about the base.

Primer - So important for a brides makeup to last the day, so many different primers on the market doing so many different jobs but my 2 most used primers by FAR
- Illamasqua matte Veil
- Laura Mercier radiance primer

Colour Correction -
- Illamasqua cream pigments in Emerge
- MUA Pro Base Prime & Conceal Palette
- YSL Colour correcting touché éclat concealers - these are so light!

Foundation - This is my BIGGEST expense!
- Illamasqua Skin Base 3.5, 6, 8, 10, 12.5, 15
- Armani Luminous silk 2, 5.5, 8, 14

EYES - I see so many dodgey eyes, with eyes it all about symmetry!

Shadows - The biggest tip to cutting costs is palettes! I do tend to use the same palettes a lot, however a lot of brides like to match there shadows to there maids so unusual colours can get thrown out there!
