Makeup Artist Pro Kit | Foundations, Concealers & Lashes


Hey guys! Today we’ll be talking about my
pro kit again and specifically, my foundations and concealers, as well as my
fake lashes that I carry with me. Let’s start with foundation. The first thing I
have here is the Bobbi Brown BBU palette, which has a whole, this is my second one already, a whole concealer side, as well as a whole foundation stick side.
This really caters to all skin tones and that way I always have all skin tones
with me and I don’t have to mix and match as much, which kind of saves time. This
though I would not recommend for dry skin, nor… well if you had don’t have a
lot of to cover, then this could work for dry skin, but not if you need high
coverage and you have dry skin. This just does not cut it, but if you or have
a model that already has pretty much near perfect skin, you can take a tiny
bit of this and your skin looks absolutely flawless. So I’m not going to
repurchase this after this one is finished, because Bobbi Brown’s not a
cruelty free brand um but I do love this, so yeah, it’s kind of sad that I
have to let it go, but yeah. This was super expensive as well, but I mean for
the amount of foundations you get in there, it’s actually not that expensive, if you
think about it. This is over 200 euros. I think I got it on sale for like 220 or
something like that, but yeah. Then I carry the Inglot Perfect HD Coverup
foundations with me and I have three tones, six tones in total always. I love
these because they’re plastic, so they’re lighter. I don’t like to carry glass
bottles with me, also I know that they will not break.
I think this foundation is really, really great for a perf… for a wide array of
skin types. The skin tones, the range is not amazing. I do have to carry, I will
show you those later, foundation mixers with me, so I can really
cater to all skin tones, but the skin types, it really covers everything. You
can build it up … you can keep it from a medium coverage up to a high
coverage foundation. It doesn’t look cakey, it lasts quite a
long time, especially if you use it with a with a primer and a setting spray, so
yeah. I have six colors. I have three shades, one light, one medium, one deep for
the yellow undertones and I have the same for the red undertones. I used to
carry with me always the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation, which I love so much.
I think I might actually like the Make Up For Ever a
tiny bit more than the Inglot foundation, but Inglot is a cruelty-free brand and
Make Up For Ever is not, so it definitely… Inglot definitely wins this one. As a
lighter coverage foundation, I carry the Ordinary Serum Foundation, lightweight
serum formula, and I carry three shades of this one, actually four shades, but the
fourth one hasn’t arrived yet. So far I have 1.0N, 2.0N and 3.0Y, because for
some reason there is no N for 3.0 and yeah, there’s more people that have
yellow undertones than red undertones; and I ordered another one but I’m not sure which one
that was now and apparently now they’re closing it’s all very strange, I think
the owner has mental illness problems, which is very, very sad and I hope he
gets the help he needs. Anyways, this was supposed to replace the
MAC Face and Body for me, because the MAC Face and Body is iconic for a reason. It
is amazing for models that already have perfect skin, where you just need a
little bit to cover up and you really need that dewy finish and that just… just
that perfection finish, where it looks like you’re wearing absolutely nothing.
This is not it this is not a replacement for that. I haven’t found a replacement.
Actually I think I might have, the essence insta something foundation, that I just tried out, is actually really, really good you guys and
it’s very similar to the MAC foundation and it’s cruelty free, so I’m… I’m amazed
at this. I’m discovering all these essence products that are really, really
great and they’re so cheap. I shouldn’t say they’re so cheap, because
for some people they might not be cheap, but in comparison to the products that
I usually buy and how much of money I spend on them, they’re quite cheap. So as
I said, I carry foundation mixers with me, and I carry the Nip & Fab foundation
mixers and one is in 55 Dark Mixer and 00 Light Mixer. So just a white
one and a deep one and yeah, these work fine for me. They don’t change the
consistency of the foundation too much or the coverage, where I would say, okay I
cannot use these and I just don’t want to mix them in. I have absolutely no
problem mixing them in and it works fine. So, then I carry this Benecos
Natural Beauty natural CC concealer. I used to have the NYX one, but I actually really
prefer this one from the consistency and the NYX one had two extra ones, that
were supposed to just be concealers, but they really didn’t match like any
undertone. I don’t know what they were thinking. Anyways, so this one, you really
just have the colors that you really need to color correct and yeah, works
great and I’m very happy about this. I think I got this in a PIP box,
which is a cruelty-free and vegan beauty box. Not entirely sure though. Then I
carry the trusty Kryolan TV Paint Stick in 070, which is a white one.
You never know when you’re… when you need to make the skin kind of white like that.
It’s something that is requested quite often for photo shootings and stuff like
that. That is why I also carry the Ben Nye Colored Cake foundation in PC-1
White, which is a cake foundation, sometimes known as pancake foundation,
which was very popular. I think it was in the 20s or 30s and you take a wet
sponge and you kind of rub it in there and then you dot it and in circular
motions put it into the skin. It’s quite hard to work with, but it does give you a
very, very beautiful finish. So I carry that one with me at all times as well,
just because I have needed it on multiple occasions and I’m glad I had it
with me. Then moving on to concealers. I have the…. new in my kit, because I used
to carry the NARS Radiant Creamy concealers, which are still my favorite ones, it’s kind of like the MUFE foundation uh the… this one is the Born This Way Multi-Use
Cculpting concealer super coverage. I got these, because I honestly I watched so
many reviews of these and they were all so positive and for some reason, I’m
still not aware that people might lie in these reviews or that
they don’t have the needs that I have for concealer. I’m gonna use these and
I’m gonna do a review on these as well, because I feel like it’s necessary um
but I don’t think these are that great. I think they crease under the eye, I have to be
very careful not to use too much product. If you use too much product, it is… it
looks terrible, it looks cakey and also it rubs off in a really weird way, if you
wear it for quite some time. I find it incredibly drying, even though
it says it’s hydrating on the website. I just don’t know. I like the color choice
of these and I think for contouring they’re quite good and I carry four
shades of these as well. I carry a the lightest one, then two
medium ones and one deep one and that is usually enough; and I still have in here
the MAC Prep and Prime, what are these? These are the highlighter and one is in
Light Boost and one is in Radian Rose. Let me, sorry I still have a lipstick
swatch on my hand, but let me swatch these two for you. These are just great
little highlighter pens, kind of similar to the YSL Touche Éclat. Not… mmmh….
yeah they’re similar, they’re not the same, but these are just great to
highlight the face a little bit, if you don’t need any coverage. Like for
example, the cheekbones or the nose area, you know, and if you have, depending on
whether you have cool undertones or warm undertones, I youth… use either one. Still
looking for a dupe for this one, that is cruelty free; and that’s it!
Wow, that’s it already, okay, that is not a lot of foundation. Let’s move on to the
fake lashes and I have to say though, I have this. This is the fake lashes. I have
to say though, what fake lashes I take me obviously varies very much to what
shooting I’m going to. If it’s a photo shoot for uh… photography for like an
avant-garde look, obviously I’m gonna take different lashes than I would when
I go to someone private and they just want to go on a night out. So this
one, I think, this one is more interesting to you guys, because these are the ones
that I carry with me when I go see someone who just wants… for an event or
something like that. So the first ones I have here, are the Ardell Wispies and I
think these are so beautiful. I love that they have a clear band, I love that
they’re bunched up and in little bundles. I think these look really, really, really
great on the eyes and I love them so much; but they’re…they’re actually on the cheaper
side, when it comes to lashes, because you have to remember that I have to sell
these lashes to the client or give them to the model.
I cannot reuse them in any way or anything like that, so if you’re spending…
and you know some lashes nowadays cost 20 Euros, 25 euros. I’m obviously not
gonna I mean obviously, if someone buys them from me, that’s fine, but you know
most normal people don’t want to spend that much money on lashes, that they
usually can’t apply themselves and that’s why they hire a makeup artist to
do it for them, so you have to kind of keep it you know between 5 and 15 to 20
Euros for lashes, because you want to make a profit as well, you know. Then I
have the Kiss True Volume. I don’t even know if these still exist, but I think
these are a great option for someone, who wants a lot
more lashes, but it’s still kind of going the more natural route. I think these
were a special edition, I’m not sure. I’ll have to check in the drugstore. I always
carry a pair of under the lashes, underneath, with me just in case I need
them for like, in case somebody wants a Twiggy look or just for a fun look, where
we really accentuate the lower lashes and not the top lashes. So I always carry
those with me and I think these were Kryolan, but I’m not sure, sorry!
This is terrible. Then they always have individual lashes with me. These ones are
Ardell I believe. The long ones of these are like super, super long. I’m gonna have
to get different ones because this is…. individual lashes are great for people
who don’t actually want to wear fake lashes, because they’re scared of them.
They think they’ll look too fake, so then you can suggest to them, that you use
individual lashes, because these ones are just the most natural. They’re always
going to be the ones that look most natural and you can usually have short,
medium and long ones. So you can really, you know, you can start with the medium
ones on the outer corner, you don’t have to start with the long ones. So usually
when people tell me, uhh I don’t want fake lashes, I’m like okay, let’s try the
individual ones. They’re happy with the result and they’re happy that I did that.
So I always carry these. These are brown actually, just to make them even more
natural. So I would put the lashes on and then put mascara afterwards, if I’m
using black mascara, but you could also use brown mascara for a more natural
look. These are these are the Ardell, I think these are demi wispies but it
says wispies on there, I get these off Amazon and these are by far the lashes I
use absolutely the most. I think they are gorgeous on the eye. They are a very good
combination of being more lashes, so you actually see a difference, and looking
very natural, because of the crisscross wispies pattern. I don’t… I’m not a big
fan of the very straight, not crisscross lashes, I think they look very fake. They
can be for certain look, but it’s just not my thing completely, but
these actually, I think five of these cost 15 Euros, so that’s like 3 Euros
something per pair of lashes. That is very cheap for lashes and that is also a
reason why I use them so much and I can offer to do them at a very reasonable
price and with a beautiful result. Here I just have a pair of claire’s lashes.
These are straight ones, just in case somebody actually wants the straight
ones, but they’re actually quite short, so if I have a client with very short
lashes, that wants something extra that is not too unnatural and just kind of,
you know, these are also mixed brown and black, so… it’s… a lot of people are scared
of fake lashes. I know, if you’re watching this, you’re probably really into makeup
and that’s not something you understand, but a lot of people who don’t use a lot
of makeup on a daily basis, are very afraid to use fake lashes, because they
think it will change them so much, that they’re unrecognizable; and they have in
their head, those lashes that, you know, go up to here, go up to your eyebrows, and
they don’t know. that there’s so many other kind of lashes on the market. So I
carry quite a few of those with me, just to kind of take away that fear a little
bit. And the last ones I have here, are these Unicorn Lashes. Isn’t the packaging
just so cute? These are Apple Sours. I think these look amazing. I haven’t actually
tried them on a client yet, because as I said, I don’t have demand for that as
much. Usually I just use some like these on myself. I’d always use… would use a
black liner, because you have… these have quite thick band, but they’re gorgeous
and there’s so much hair, but it will cover your entire eye makeup. I don’t… you
know, I try not to use a lot of fake lashes on my channel, because I just
think it’ll cover up everything, all the hard work you just put in and the
reality is, that a lot of us don’t wear fake lashes on a day-to-day basis. So
yeah, but I really, I mean the packaging got me, let’s be honest here.
Love the unicorn packaging. As a glue, I always carry with me the DUO eyelash
glue. I carry the clear one and also the dark toned one. Wow, that took longer than
I thought! Hope you liked this video, you can
