Professional Makeup Artist Kit Building Tips. How to do more with less!

The question I get most often, after people subscribe to the email list and get the list of kit basics is what specific brands and shades of products that I recommend. The answer is always to first evaluate who your Ideal Client is (you should really dig deep into this guide!)

Since I get this question so often, I decided to dig a bit deeper into what is in my actual working artist kit. The work that I do is mostly in commercial production, portraits and special events, so my kit is built for the type of client that I work with.

In this video, I talk a little about the 2 main foundations that I use (Graftobian and Temptu S/B airbrush) and why they work for me.

No matter where you are and what type of clients you are serving, I recommend choosing products that will take up minimal space in your kit. Palettes are great space savers.

A professional artist is prepared for all complexion colors and skin types!

In this video, I talk about choosing foundations that you can build up the level of coverage or mix moisturizer to sheer out as needed. Be prepared to manipulate your products to customize the shade and coverage that is ideal for your client.

More Kit Building Tips are coming soon. If you would like to walk thru how Ive built my kit and why it works for me, join me for the Kit Building Course in April. Pre-Order now here and save $10 by using the code PRESALE.

If you have questions, add them in the comments and I will make sure to add whatever you are looking for into the course before it launches!

The First Step in Building Your Business

For the last few months, many of you have emailed me, asking for more info on workshops, courses and 1-1 coaching.  That been on hold because I was slammed this year with my own freelance biz, seriously business was booming like never before!

And, as I mentioned in my responses to you all, I was hard at work turning the content from the workshop into a series of self study courses that you can access and do on your own time!

Buy the first guide,  Start Here First! Who is your Ideal Client? here now!idealclientguidesale Now you don’t have to wait around for me to take on a new group for coaching. You can grab the info and get to work! I am SO excited to share this with you this year. I have missed the groups and working with people personally. Since we are weeks away from meeting our new addition (we are having a new baby in March!), I will not be doing any coaching for a few months. I would never leave you hanging! I am super excited to announce that the first in the series of ebooks is available for download now!

This is the most important thing you can do for your business, I can’t stress that enough. Where ever you are in your business, whatever you are working on (pricing/marketing/kit building), everything comes back to what is best for your ideal client. Get clear here and you are all set!

For more than 10 years now, I have been working as a full time professional stylist. In this time, I have been in 4 different states and my wants/needs have changed each year. As I think about the changes and opportunities that 2015 will bring to me and my family, I am going back to this very important exercise to help me set my goals and make decisions for my business this year.

Let’s do this together! Cheers to making 2015 the best year ever!
