Tips for efficient kit repacking.

Other MUA often comment at how compact my kit. I’m a minimalist and I like to fit it all in a small carry-on size suitcase. I make this happen by packing specifically for the job and above all, repacking as efficiently as possible.

Foundations, lotions and other liquids go into small soft plastic 1 or 2 oz  press top bottles similar to these :

Lipsticks, cream colours, cream foundations and concealers go into deep well palettes. You can get this 24 well palette for only $5 and with the rounded bottom no product gets wasted in corners.

 

Palette for cream makeup. Perfect for cream products.

To organise pigments neatly and prevent spills from getting all over your kit (you know how much of a pain that is!), this sweet case including 20 stackable jars is just ideal at less than $4.

My stranded on a deserted island makeup product.

Though what I would do with makeup if I were stranded on a deserted island remains a little bit of a mystery…

But seriously.

The M.A.C. Gloss Crème Brillance.

If my stock drops below 3 tubes I start twitching and scratching manically. I just cannot be without it at work. In fact, if they ever discontinued it, I’m afraid I’d have to consider a career change.

Glossy cheeks, glossy lids, glossy legs. Here I come!

An early call time must have.

The alarm goes off when others are walking home, your dog look at you in disbelief and you are considering intravenous espresso. Ya. You know the feeling… The early call time!
