Guide To Staying on Budget at The Makeup Show

Yes t-minus five days and counting to the most awaited Pro-Only event of the artistic and creative minds yes The Makeup Show will be taking place this coming Sunday May 5- May 6 2013 at the Metropolitan Pavilion tickets are going quickly so hurry and secure your spot.  Once you’ve done that you’re half way through the battle of getting through the show with your wallet not screaming at you. How does one prepare? Well after being to the Makeup Show for several years now I’ve come up with a full proof way to setting and sticking to your budget set.


1. If you’re an existing makeup artist go through your personal and professional kit and toss any items that are no longer good for use, and giveaway or sell anything you are no longer using. This will allow you to take inventory of your current stock lipstick colors, shadows, disposables, and etc… 


Get organize and Prioritize

2. Make a list of everything that you need to have a completely stocked kit. Do research based on the type of makeup you are doing make sure to have your essentials. Check out James Vincent who has a great article on Beautylish  explaining what you need and how to make those decisions wisely.


3. Now do your research! Yes all makeup is not created equally, organically or cruelty free. Decide what kind of makeup you’d like to have in your kit, ensure you have makeup for your clients who may have skin allergies as well as skin ailements that may flare up with application of certain chemicals (Very Important)  Check out the EWG Cosmetics Database to start.


4. Once you’ve done your research set your budget that is based on your financials. A standard kit that can cover all your needs can start anywhere from 300-1500 depending on a number of factors ( airbrush machine, buying all the eyeshadows under the sun, and purchasing supplements such as a vanity, Zuca bag or lights)cashorcredit

5. Go through the list you’ve made and write down specifically the BRAND(s) you will be purchasing from. This is important as there will be more than six dozen who all have amazing products. Know what brands and products you want or else you’ll have five red lipsticks from ten different companies. ( I should know!) Here are the list of the brands who will be there.
