Freelance makeup artist kit

Every girl loves makeup kits. When you are going to buy your first makeup kit, it’s stimulating for you. Many girls have no idea about makeup kits. You need enough ideas about makeup artist kits before going shopping. 

Face Primer

The most important thing to do makeup is skin primer. It minimizes your skin pores and sets your makeup.


It is an essential part of makeup. See your skin type and choose the best foundation for your skin type. Because you have to buy foundation in keeping with skin tone. 

If your foundation shades mismatch your skin color, your makeup is not perfect, so be careful before buying a foundation. If you have some spots on your face, you need a full coverage foundation, and the more important thing is how to blend foundation on your face.

Loose powder

After foundation, loose powder is essential to setting any makeup look! Loose powder sets your heavy foundation, and you can get a lot of makeup on your face.

Color Corrector & Concealer

Most of the girls have dark circles under their eyes. To cover their dark circles, girls use both color correctors and concealers. Color corrector is also used for the upper lip.

Contouring Palette

You see 3 different color shades like matte brown, dark brown, and cream color in the contour palette. Matte brown shades are used for light skin, dark brown shades, and dark skin and cream color shades are used to highlight your contouring.

Eyebrow Kit

Which type of eyebrow kit do you choose? Eyebrow kit or eyebrow pencil. You have different colors in one eyebrow kit, such as black, brown but one eyebrow pencil is one color.

Eye Primer

Eye primer needs to set your eye makeup. It also helps the eyeshadow to stay for a long time.


Every girl likes eye makeup. Without an eyeshadow palette, eye makeup is impossible. You can buy matte color with some shimmer shades.

Lip Liner

Lip liner is essential for arting your lip. Before applying lipstick. 


Every girl loves lipstick. A girl can’t think of her makeup without lipstick. Lipstick has two types: 

  • (i) Liquid       
  • (ii) Matte 

 You can easily use liquid lipstick in the winter season, and matte lipstick is suitable for the summer season.


Blush on is an essential kit for a makeover. I think powder blush on is better than cream blush on.


A highlighter can highlight your nose and face. Highlighters give you a charming shining face.

Setting Spray 

Setting spray locks your makeup. It helps your makeup on your face to stay all day.

Beauty Blender

The beauty blender is needed to blend your foundation or concealer.
