If you’ve ever wondered what the best makeup, beauty or tools are, then the surest way to find out is by observing what celebrity makeup artists use.
Here we’ve rounded up 3 of our favourite picks that we’ve constantly seen makeup artists carry around with them, whether it’s to fashion weeks, events, shoots or client’s homes.
1. Glamcor Makeup Lights
Professional MUA’s know how important lighting is, but it’s not just any lighting- it’s the right kind of lighting. Ringlights are great for taking pictures but they’re not necessarily the right solution for detailed application. Glamcor is a company that started around 2010 because they felt that there wasn’t enough options for high-quality, portable and durable lighting anywhere in the market. With the various light settings for day light and warm light, it’s not only great for MUA’s, but it’s now been commonly used by tattoo artists, makeup schools, brow artists, dermatologists, aestheticians and lash technicians as well.
2. Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray
If it’s good enough for Wayne Goss, Pat McGrath and Sonjdra Deluxe, then it’s good enough for us.
Now that wearing masks are an everyday routine, the last thing you want is your makeup smudging all over the place. One of the best features about the Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray ( they now have a new version for Oil Control ) is that it doesn’t take away or change how your make up looks. It just sets it perfectly in place.
One of Pat McGrath’s makeup tips is to finish your makeup application and then spray Skindinavia Makeup Finishing spray all over the face for dewey makeup that’s sweat proof.
3. Z Palette
No makeup artist kit is complete without a Z Palette ! What sets ordinary MUA’s apart from the PRO’s is the detail and attention they put into their makeup kit. What they carry and how they carry them are two of the biggest elements. Pro MUA’s know that they’re stacked for time. They need to be able to see all these essentials in front of them clearly. When you’re able to selectively handpick and choose what goes into your makeup kit, you are not only saving on space, but you’re being more effective with your time management. The faster you find your products, the easier it is to get the job done. Pro MUA’s have everything they need in front of them. Priscillaono, Global Makeup Artist for Fenty Beauty, is a huge Z Palette fan. She depots everything from cream blush to bronzers. Here are some of the ways Celebrity Makeup Artists are using their Z Palettes.
