'In my Kit' Professional make up artist - Face Primers

This is my first blog to share with you what products I keep in my professional make up kit for jobs.  I have separated these blogs into sections depending on what products I will be talking about.

My reasons for writing these blogs are to introduce you to products and also to show people in the industry exactly how much money a make up artist spends on their kits, baring in mind that each product is replaceable and does not have a 'lifetime' use.

Not only do make up artists need a basic kit to use for work but we also have to keep up to date with new products coming onto the market every day.

You may believe that professional make up artists receive a discount on products but this is not always the case. In fact other than the odd 'VAT Free' day, I pay full whack for all my products, just the same as everyone else.

Primers -
Supercover Ultimate Face Primer £36 for 50ml - This is a lovely clear gel primer with Aloe Vera in it - I find that this primer not only soothes the skin but it gives it a gorgeous sheen and makes for the perfect base to apply foundation on to.
Avon Magix face perfecter £10.50 for 30ml - This primer is white in colour and has the added benefit of SPF20 which is great for wearing under foundation as it gives you that extra bit of protection.  The cream itself gives a silk like finish and mattifies the skin.


Mac eye primer £13 - This primer neutralises the skin tone on your eyelids and mattifies so that your eyeshadow stays on for longer.

Primers in my kit = 3 at a total cost of £59.50

I expect the face primers to last up to 3 months each and the eye primer normally lasts me for up to 1 year.  Once they have finished I need to replace them.

Cost per year - £203.00
on just 3 products! - Are they worth it? YES! not only do they help with making make up stay on for longer, help soothe and protect the skin meaning less breakouts on clients but this also provides a 'pampering' service to my clients which helps make them feel special.

Please note, that as a professional working make up artist, my clients include the general public, models, actors, opera singers, television stars and many more people who all deserve the same treatment.
