|My poor little makeup kit, it's seen better days. I'm going to get a bigger one soon and lay old faithful to rest :)|
A good majority of my followers are makeup artists or aspiring makeup artists and part of the makeup I buy is for my makeup artistry kit, so... I thought it would be good to have a new monthly feature on "What's in my Kit?"
Each month I will feature a few items that I use in my professional makeup artistry kit for clients. I hope this new feature will help makeup artists (aspiring and future artists) in their kit selections and hopefully it will aid them on finding out what products work and what doesn't work. The products that I use will also be great for makeup and beauty lovers!

Believe it or not... I actually use Elf's pressed powders ($3 each) for my clients. I bought all 6 colors: porcelain, buff, sand, caramel, almond and coco. I've been able to match every client with these powders. They are convenient because they're in compacts and they provide great coverage, especially for brides.
The only thing I don't like is that because they are matte, they provide a matte finish-which is good for oily people but sometimes you want a more dewy or even a natural finish. Eventually, I plan to purchase the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish powders because it looks more like skin but it provides matte coverage. I hope that makes sense :) I'm definitely going to keep the Elf powders in my kit!
Stay tuned for next month's feature of What's in my Kit?
