What Your MUA Kit Should Include:
Use this list as a guide as not all MUAs focus on the same looks!
Lashes, lashes and more lashes
No MUA kit is complete without the falsies. Make sure when stocking up on the false eyelashes you create a range (at least have some natural styles and some dramatic ones). However, this depends on the style of makeup you promote you do. For example, if you are focusing on prom makeup, wedding makeup, festival makeup or night out makeup then it is a must that you stock more dramatic false eyelashes.
False Eyelash Tools
A handy little eyelash applicator will speed up the lash application time and allow you to get them on first time round! We all know it can be a struggle applying false eyelashes with your fingers, let alone using your fingers to apply the lashes on your clients face! It will also help keep things as hygienic as possible which is very important if you want those good 5 star reviews!
False Eyelash Glue
Make sure you stock up on false eyelash glue because without the glue you won’t be able to apply the false eyelashes! It is also important that you select an adhesive that is latex free as some of your clients may be allergic to latex!
A range of eyeshadow colours including both matte and shimmers
This all depends on what style of makeup you are doing. If you’re going to be doing a lot of festival makeup, then it is an absolute must that you use bright and powerful colours. Most clients going to festivals will want to really stand out and make their eyes pop going for bright and vibrant colours such as pink, blue, green, orange and yellow. We would also recommend that if you’re going to be doing festival makeup you stock up on bright eyeliner colours and festival face gems! This will bring in the most clients! We recommend you purchase some palettes that contain brows, smokey colours, and pinks, bright and vibrant colours. If you look around you should be able to keep your pallets to a minimum if you’re savvy enough!
If you are on a tight budget, we recommend you select a foundation that is suitable for all skin types. Try to avoid any matte finishes as you may struggle to ensure it looks good on dry skin. If in doubt, why not try a satin finish? You can always make this more matt by adding powder, setting powder or baking. We also suggest you should opt for a wide range of colours. However, if you’re on a budget you could pick up a mixer which can make any foundation shade lighter depending on how much mixer you add to it.
Powders, Bronzer & Highlight
You should always have powders in your kit. We recommend you opt for a translucent powder as this is suitable for all skin colours. Bronzer & highlight, these are game changers when it comes to glamming up any day time makeup look to transform it into a night time look.
Stock Up On Disposable Mascara Wands
