STARTING YOUR VERY OWN™ MAKEUP KIT | BEAUTY BLENDER AND TOP MAKEUP BRUSH SETS 

At a point, some of us makeup lovers take our obsession with beauty and cosmetics to another level and make it our career – professional makeup artistry. Of course, you won’t want to use your own tools and cosmetics on clients so this is where your freelance makeup kit comes into play – I remember when I first started out with makeup I would get so many different brushes because that how I would apply makeup to myself but really you don’t need to carry that many makeup brushes but it’s a good idea to carry doubles and always clean them good after a shoot or using them on a client  because you will be using those brushes in places where infection can spread and you don’t want to be the cause of pink eye outbreak at the local prom, now do you? Hygiene is very important. 

You’ll need to make sure you have brush care inside of your case and at home a brush shampoo to give them a good wash. A lot of the brand I’m going to be talking about do sell both, naturally. You also need to keep in mind that there is a big (huge) difference between inexpensive and cheap  – do it right the first time. 


The Beautyblender® which sells for twenty dollars ($20.00) and you can grab from any Sephora –  they also sell in sets so that you can have multiples like I mentioned above. The Beautyblender® is perfect for all kinds of makeup application so that you wouldn’t even think off. 

PRO TIP ➡️ use the Beautyblender® to lightly pull down the water line to apply eyeliner so that it’s more comfortable for who you’re working on and gives you more control. And also makes it look like you’ve been doing it for years. 

When I first purchased BB I bought it in a set when they came out with the Blotterazzi™ which is another perfect product to use a shield between your skin and the clients. And the kits come with the beautyblender micro.mini pro for laser sharp focused contouring, highlighting, concealing. 

DON’T FORGET ➡️ beautyblender® is easy to use: simply wet.squeeze.bounce. your way to makeup perfection!

Right there I would say you pretty much have complextion flawlessly beat to the gods. Beautyblender® is goof proof. Not saying there is anything wrong with being a little goofy – makeup is all about art and exploring, trying new things and with Beautyblender® you’ll have bouncy ride. 


Having Beautyblender® in 2017 is an absolute must in my professional opinion, it’s one of the smartest forms of complextion perfection. 

The Brushes and the Brush sets

One of the brands that you will find most beauty and life bloggers and social influencers talking about is Morphe and yes that is probably because they want you to use their code where you get fifteen percent (15%) too twenty five present (25%) off which is good on someonthing with an already low cost but I’m not going to include my affiliation link so you because it’s not about collecting a commission at the moment it’s about quality and Morphe does have high quality products (you will see some more Morphe products in future Starting your own™ posts) In order to truly get a feel for what about the line makes every blogger loose her chill, I set out to test every single brush from the Elite II collection. All 61 of them. I spent days making my way through the pack, loving every single second of how the vegan bristles swept my makeup on like it was air. There’s no freaking way not a single one of these is more than twenty three  dollars ($23), I thought. And yet, I’d double check the website and prove once again to myself that this was in fact true. 

Plus, the total cost of them comes out to one hundred and sixty dollars ($160.00) which is around the same price of just one (1) of the designer brushes. You can’t beat these for the price, so I won’t keep trying.

The gold handled Gilded Collection has to be on of the best collections. The twenty three (23) piece set includes everything needed to create a full face makeup look. This complete set covers it all-correct and set, blend and shade, or highlight and contour. Perfect for any budding makeup artist or seasoned professional.


Now – you don’t need to buy the entire collection although I would because it’s great value and like I did mention beauty bloggers do have code to save you even more money – so please comment if you’re interest and I’ll tell you my code or use MannyMUA or LauraLee – both amazing and talented. 

This brush set includes Y1 – PRECISION POINTED POWDER, Y2 – TAPERED POWDER, Y3 – PRO POINTED POWDER, Y4 – DELUXE ANGLE BLUSH, Y5 – PRO TAPERED BLUSH, Y6 – PRO FLAT BUFFER, Y7 – ROUND BUFFER, Y8 – MINI TAPERED HIGHLIGHT/CONTOUR, Y9 – DETAIL CONTOUR, Y10 – MINI DETAIL CONTOUR, Y11 – DELUXE POINTED CONTOUR, Y12 – PRO FLAT CONTOUR, Y13 – PRO HIGHLIGHT FAN, Y14 – PRO DETAIL HIGHLIGHT, Y15 – DELUXE ROUND BLENDER, Y16 – DELUXE FLUFF, Y17 – DELUXE DETAIL CREASE, Y18 – TAPERED BLENDING FLUFF, Y19 – POINTED BLENDER, Y20 – PRO ROUND CREASE, Y21 – FLAT DEFINER, Y22 – DETAILED BULLET CREASE, Y23 – PRO ANGLE LINER and most if not all of these brushes are available on their own for no more then ten dollars ($10.00) as a new artist this would be the set of makeup brushes that you would need or pick and choose to create your own little set! 

There is also 10 PIECE DELUXE SET which has a couple face brushes but mostly focuses on the eyes but that’s why we have the Beautyblender® for complextion perfection! 

Natural hair brushes are one of the most popular options in makeup for their perfect combination of firmness and softness that create flawless blending. This ten-piece set includes gorgeous and versatile brushes for face and eyes with high quality natural bristles. It’s all kept in an faux ostrich snap case for easy travel.

Flat Bronzer Brush, Angle Blush Brush, Soft Fan Brush, Eye Shadow Fluff Brush, Precision Eye Shadow Brush, Blending Brush, Crease Blender Brush, Smudge Brush, Crease Brush, Bullet Crease brush.



So there are lots to choose from out there just make sure you do your research and find what works best for you and you almost ready MUA kit! But Beautyblender® is a must for complextion perfection. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Don’t forget to dampen your Beautyblender® for maximum performance and keep it clean. 

💥Also it’s smart to have vegan and none vegan items or ask in advance just so that you don’t show up and they wanted only all vegan products used💥

PR UNBOXING ➡️ URBAN DECAY SHAPESHIFTER and PRO BRUSH 

So I’m not going to letpeople saying things yeah I get PR releases and Press samples for shameless promotion of the brand from someone who has some what a social following and I love doing what I do but when I first let started it took me years before i was on anyone’s radar. 

When I say “Naked Palette” and you think everyday eye makeup or the very best smoky eyes in the game. Not this time. A brand-new Urban Decay Naked contouring palette is about to drop, and it’s going to be so good. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter was just announced on the beauty brand’s Instagram page. And this isn’t your ordinary contouring palette. In addition to four powdered shades for sculpting, color correcting, illuminating, and adding color to your face, there’s a whole different formula underneath it. If you flip up the powdered section, there are five cream contouring shades underneath. The combo of the two will let you gauge just how natural or intense you want your look to be. Plus, layering them will ensure all-day slay. You might be wondering why this particular highlighting palette gets the famous nudist moniker. Our best guess: There’s a range of versatile, buff, and skin flattering hues that will make your contour look born-this-way not full-face-of-makeup (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) It’s also not the first time Urban Decay has created a Naked product that wasn’t a shadow: There’s also Naked foundation and concealer.

I’m going to say UB (urban decay) has been killing lately and giving it other companies one way or another, with they launch of their line of makeup removers and skin products to this which is not available in Canada at the time I’m posting this. SO let’s do this killa – what we have from UB is a total package for the face it’s something that I’ve wanted to own for quite sometime in some ways it performs like I just had the best sex ever and some ways it’s limp – you say tomato I say potato. It’s your creams and your powders all in one place, Naked Skin Shapeshifter is more than a contour kit – this three-in-one complexion palette provides everything you need to contour, color-correct and highlight. One side contains powders (three (3) for contouring and one (1)  pearl shade for highlighting), and the other holds creams (two (2) for contouring, two (2) four color-correcting and one pearl shade for highlighting). Available in two color ways that span the complexion spectrum, Light Medium Shift for light to medium skin tones and Medium Dark Shift for medium to dark skin tones—Naked Skin Shapeshifter has everybody covered. If you fall somewhere in the middle, mix the shades in either palette to create your own custom tones. You can even layer the powder and cream formulas to achieve a longer-wearing, more intense effect.

SHADE MEDIUM-DARK

Naked Skin Shapeshifter is contouring the Naked way. Every shade is blendable, buildable and forgiving—so your skin still looks like skin. We curated a range of shades and textures for the flexibility to create any look. The medium and dark contour shades allow you to achieve any level of contouring, from subtle shaping to more intense, sculpted effects. The color correctors neutralize dark areas under the eyes for a wide-awake look. The light contour shades and highlighters enable you to bring light to the high points of the face—for glowing, youthful-looking Naked skin. Our powders are finely milled for an ultra-silky feel and a clean finish. The creams blend into the skin for a seamless finish—giving you the best of both worlds.

SHADE LIGHT-MEDIUM 

Naked Skin Shapeshifter comes in a super-sleek, travel-ready case with a dimensional, “contoured” effect. Slim enough to take with you, this palette is still packed with nine shades. A double-sided mirror separates the powders from the creams and keeps them clean and mess-free.
If you live in the USA I’d go out and buy this and as soon as it’s available in Canada I’ll have a link up to buy and a little surpise!

One of the best parts about the Shapeshifter Palette is its compact design. You can easily use the palette on shoots without bringing a ton of products along with her. In addition to the palette itself, though, there is also a Shapeshifter brush meant to be used directly with the new product. The fans thought the double-sided brush was going to come in the box with the product but come on do you think UB WOULD PASS UP MAKING MORE MONEY!? I don’t think so it’s sold separate. 

Mastering contouring techniques takes practice, and using the right tools makes all the difference. No matter what look you’re going for, the UD Pro Contour Shapeshifter Brush has you covered. The domed brush makes it easy to lay down a lot of product and blend out the edges. Think of it as a mini version our UD Pro Optical Blurring Brush. Stipple on color to get the payoff you desire, then buff the edges to diffuse. The fan brush lays down just the right amount of highlighter for that flawless, glowy, “I woke up like this” look.
