play-academy-makeup-kit-for-stylistsMakeup can often become a cluttered and disorganized mess. If you find yourself spending more time digging than you do applying makeup, you should keep reading for great tips to organize a makeup kit for your daily use as well as one for those special events.


You’ll want to have a nice range of colors for all your face products in order to match perfectly to your clients’ skin tones. Invest in at least 10 different shades so you can customize colors for any client’s unique tone. Also consider different formulas for dry, oily, or sensitive skin. Stocking your makeup kit with powder and cream blushes, bronzers, and contour and highlighting products will have you prepared to work on any skin type!


Having a wide range of eyeshadow colors in your makeup kit is essential. For your professional makeup kit, you should invest in a few different eyeshadow palettes that include matte and shimmery neutral, dark, and light colors. Also consider powder and cream formulas for different skin types. To finish off your clients’ eye looks and to define their brows, you’ll also want to stock different types of eyeliners, mascara formulas (ie. waterproof, lengthening, thickening, etc.), and eyebrow pencils and powders.


In your professional makeup kit, you’ll want to include different shades of lipsticks, lip glosses, lip stains, and liquid lipsticks. Again, there are so many options available but having a solid range of colors will allow you mix and create customized lips for your clients! Invest in a wide range of lip liners to create the perfect base for your lipstick creations.


Other products you should stock in your kit include brushes, disposable applicators (i.e. mascara wands, sponges, etc.), primers, falsies, setting spray, makeup remover, glitter, gems and jewels, facial tissues, cotton swabs, and a portable makeup case to keep it all together! You should also evaluate your kit every so often to ensure you’re able to deliver any trendy looks or techniques your clients may request. For example, you might want to consider including a shimmery highlighting product for clients who want the strobing effect, which is a hot trend right now!

With these cosmetic products your makeup kit is organized and you should be on your way to a less stressful and efficient make up routine.
