The Starter Guide for Makeup Artists

The Starter Guide for Makeup Artists

So, you’ve dedicated your life to beautifying, but, you’re a little overwhelmed with the countless products and makeup tools available on the cosmetics market. From brushes to brush holders, skincare to travel cases and product holders that organise your ever-expanding makeup collection – the beauty world is your oyster!

It can be a little difficult working out exactly what you need in your makeup kit at the beginning, but if you’re ready to take your professionalism to the next level, we’ve got your back.

To make things nice ‘n’ simple for all the professional makeup newbies, we’ve selected some of the most essential items you’ll need for starting out below.

A Brush Holder (or 3!)

You’ll need to make sure that all of your brushes are easy to find and totally organised. From foundation brushes, to kabuki brushes and blending brush tools, the list is extensive and will only get longer as you start building your kit with lots of beautiful beautifying tools!

We’ve got a range of brush holders available in different sizes, perfect for every size kit – and the perfect addition to your vanity room.

Beauty Boxes

The beauty haven of dreams, the walk-in wardrobe of the professional MUA, the beauty box. A must-have for professional beauty junkies, keep this in your beauty salon or your vanity room for a glam but functional touch.

House anything from your foundations to your compacts and lip products, our range of beauty boxes literally hold everything. Whether you go for a classic stand or deluxe, we’ve got you covered.

A Compact Holder

We’ve all been there, throwing our favourite Nars or MAC compact highlighter in to the bottom of our handbag only to take it out and be left with a shimmers powdery mess. Now that you’re a pro, you’ll need to keep all of your compacts safe because having to repurchase often just isn’t feasible!

Choose from a range of compact holders to keep your products in place; a simple and aesthetically pleasing way to organise your products so that when you need to head to your next appointment you know where everything is.

Travel Cases

One of the most important tools you’ll need as a professional makeup artist, is a travel case. As you start killing it and gaining more freelance clients, you might start to travel from appointment to appointment. Trust us when we say that you’ll thank your lucky stars for your travel case. We offer a huge range of light and portable styles that comes with different pouches and holders – like we said girls, we’ve got you!

Check out the video below of MUA royalty, Jasmine Hand as she compares our travel trolley case to other brands and explains why she loves taking it with her to her clients.

For a collection of pretty and multifunctional products, we’re the go-to for professional beauty lovers and junkies across Australia. Head to etoile Etoile Collective for the beauty goodies that’ll make your life easier and add the glam factor to your vanity space.
