When it comes to my kit I like to travel minimal as I am constantly hopping on and off trains and planes however that doesn’t mean I don’t want to have everything I need so as a result I am obsessed with space saving. Whether you are a professional make up artist traveling around for jobs or just jetting off on your holidays I thought I’d share with you some tips of where I get my tools to keep my kit in perfect order so that you can always be prepared without being loaded down like a WAG at the World Cup. To start with make sure you carry your make up in clear plastic pouches as this will enable you to see everything you have at a moment’s notice, Screenface do a great selection in various sizes but if you don’t need to be so specific you can also pick up a selection at good old Mark’s & Spencer’s, divide into sections (lips, eyes, bases etc..) if you’re on a big trip if not then one will do fine. Make sure you pack lots of disposables for hygene purposes such as Qtips (I love the tiny ones from Muji), sponges (again Muji do a great multipack) and disposable mascara wands found at Charles Fox and Screenface. In fact Muji is really quite a mecca for those with a slight OCD complex as their sheer variety of travel organisers means they have always been a favourite with make up artists, stylists and photographers alike for years. The Pro Makeup Shop also has an excellent selection of these space savers and hygiene products on a good budget, get their refillable bottles for cleansers and bases so you don’t need to carry around any bulky or heavy packaging. To save you carrying a million lipsticks consider condensing them into a palette to save space, traditionally I’ve used Japanoesque lipstick palettes and MAC blush and eyeshadow palettes however I have recently been intrduced to ZPalette which enables you to add any shadow or blush pan to the palette using their magnetic stickers so that you are not brand limited. Just think of it like Tetris and slot it all together.
