Advice from a MUA: "Go for lead free and paraben free cosmetics, since MUAs will be using it to their clients. Skip replica cosmetics please lang. Don't forget to sanitize properly!"


I know makeup can be a bit expensive to some people who doesn't wear much makeup on a daily basis but that's the price of beauty. As a profession, it would still be an investment if you're planning to be a make up artist one day. Anyway, it's a choice :D

Feel free to check the content's cosmetics. I apologize but I cannot do the long research regarding the contents for this long list >.<

Disclaimer: I am not a makeup artist, but I just love makeup. The list came from some makeup artist friends. 


After some time you can now invest to high end products and tools, don't forget your mirror bulb, trolley and highchair!
