If you're an emerging makeup artist at Servilles Academy, congratulations on embarking on an exciting journey in the beauty industry! While creativity and passion are essential for any makeup artist, having the right tools in your kit is equally important. As you develop your skills and build your clientele, you'll need a set of reliable, high-quality tools to help you achieve professional-looking results. We have an incredible Make Up Artistry Kit, with some of the best professional products on the market. All of the recommended products in this article come in your Kit!
Here are five essential tools every makeup artist needs in their kit:
1. Brushes and Disposables
When it comes to makeup application, brushes are your best friend. They allow you to apply products precisely and blend them seamlessly. But with so many different types of brushes out there, which ones should you invest in?
Start with the basics: a foundation brush, a powder brush, a blush brush, an eyeshadow brush, and a lip brush. These brushes will cover most of your makeup application needs. As you become more experienced, you can add more specialized brushes to your collection.
It's also important to have a supply of disposables on hand, such as cotton swabs, makeup sponges, and disposable mascara wands. These items are essential for hygiene and to avoid cross-contamination between clients.
2. Prep Products
Before you apply makeup, it's important to prepare your client's skin to ensure a smooth, flawless finish. Prep products can include moisturizers, primers, and lip balms. They help to hydrate the skin, fill in fine lines and pores, and create a smooth base for makeup application.

3. Cleaning Products and Sanitization
When it comes to cleaning your tools, it's recommended to use brush cleansers that are specifically designed to remove makeup and bacteria without damaging the bristles of your brushes. In addition to cleaning your brushes, it's also important to sanitize your tools and work surfaces between clients. Keep a spray bottle of 70% isopropyl alcohol on hand, which is effective at killing germs and bacteria on contact. You can use it to spray your tools, palettes, and any other surfaces that come in contact with your clients' skin.
Using disposable applicators such as cotton swabs, mascara wands, and lip brushes can also help maintain a hygienic environment. These items are single-use and should be discarded after each client to prevent cross-contamination.
4. Base Foundation
Foundation is the key to creating a flawless complexion. As a makeup artist, it's important to have a range of foundation shades in your kit to cater to clients with different skin tones and undertones. You should also consider the type of foundation that will work best for your clients' skin type, whether it's liquid, powder, or cream.
5. Face Palette
A face palette is a multi-use product that includes a range of colors for contouring, highlighting, and blush. It's a convenient tool for makeup artists on-the-go and can save you time when working on clients.
