Make Up Tips | Putting Together Your Make Up Kit

Make Up Tips | Putting Together Your Make Up Kit

Being a girl means having A LOT of “wants” and “needs” but one thing every girl MUST have in her bag is her make up kit or her “kikay kit”.  Having a make up kit is now essential, not just because of emergencies such as running into your major crush, or being invited to an impromptu night out, but also because of practical reasons such as attending formal events or going to interviews.

Here are some of the basic suggestions and make up tips on  putting together your make up kit.

Choosing The Best Make Up Products

Don’t be afraid to invest in make up, especially if you are a make up artist, because this will greatly affect your career as a make up professional. At the same, first timers or those who aren’t familiar with the make up market might be overspending or investing too much on products that won’t exactly fit their needs.

The challenge is to put together the right products without compensating value for money, or the make up quality.


  • Concealer – A concealer is essential for hiding blemishes, sores, pimples, eyebags or other unwanted marks.
    Be careful to choose a shade that matches your foundation or your powder and pick a concealer and a shade that blends easily with your skin tone.

  •  Foundation- Having the right foundation is very important as it is the baseline for application. It helps even out  and smoothen the skin tone to help you achieve a more polished look and to make it easier for you to apply your make up.

    Props Individual concealers are cream based that also give a full coverage. Try this out for your foundation as well to add a bit of moisturizer to your concealer shade to achieve a more natural and dewy look for your foundation.

    Props Correct and Conceal Palette

  •  Powder – Having a face powder handy is important as this helps setting your make up, helps you  counteract shining and it aids in keeping your make up on longer.

  •  Brow Pencil/Powder- Brow products allow you to define and shape your brows and they have become essential esepcially since defined brows are becoming part of the hottest look of the season.                                                                                                                            

    The Props Brow Kit contains 4 shades of brow powder perfect for shaping and filling in your brows. It can also be used to contour your eyes and nose bridge.   

  • BlushOns/Bronzers – Blush ons or bronzers allow you to add dimensions to your face, and define your cheekbones.

    Blust Set Props Philippines

    Props carries 10 and 28 blushers as well as highlight and contour combinations. Choose one that would best fit your needs and/or level of skill.


  • Eyeliners – Eyeliners, by its very name, lines the eyes. It adds definition to a plain Jane look, or even spice up a strong full makeup.  Props Eyeliner gels are easy to apply and long lasting. Try out our basic blue, black or brown shades.

  • Eyeshadows are the most flexible makeup. One can carry as little as one to two colors, or as much as the variations of the color wheel.

     Props carries a wide array of eye shadows from 4 to 180 colors! Single eye shadows are something to look forward too as well!


  • Lipstick - Finish your look with a suitable lip color. Props carries 15 and 32 color lip palette that you can mix and match to recreate new and unique shades. Make Up Lips Philippines


How your make up will look and how carefully it can be maintained also depends on what tools you use for application. Low grade brushes can greatly affect the amount, the size and the formation of the make up that is applied on your face.  According to 2 things that make or break your look your primers and your brushes.

  • Brushes – Props believes in the power of high quality brushes made of mixed hair – natural and synthetic. Stay connected for updates regarding the new 20 pc pro set and 7 personal travel set.
  • Make Up Removers – Makeup can make you pretty, but can also damage your skin when not worn for long. Luckily, Props is a registered retailer of Nippon Products – manufacturer of the best Parian Spirit brush cleaners and Makeup removers.

The Buzz In Being A Make Up Artist | Philippines

Becoming a Make Up Artist in the Philippines Props Philippines Make Up Workshop

The idea of becoming a make up artist may appeal to many, after all, we live in a world where beauty, aesthetics, representation and expression play a significant role in our day to day lives. This does not necessarily mean that we all follow the same concept of beauty, but in fact affirms the need for diversity and variety which is why make up artists have their own creative flair, their own style and their own ways of transforming simple facial features into expressive and enhanced works of art.

That is what every make up artist has – the power to transform.

Things to Consider 

Though becoming a make up artist, especially a professional make up artist in the Philippines, can be very exciting and enticing, it is something that also needs careful consideration. Just like any other profession, careful planning and decision making are involved in the process. Don’t be daunted by these – the idea is to have fun and figure out how you want to go about your profession.

1.Having the right skills and passion

 Though formal training is very important, having the right mindset, skills and passion for make up artistry also contribute greatly to ones success as a make up artist. For example,  mentions that an important skill to possess is the ability to “observe”. Through careful observation, you get to learn a lot simply be looking. This is also the cheapest way to gain familiarity and knowledge about looks and styles and will also allow you to find your own signature style – a must have for every artist.

2.Finding your Niche

As a make up artist you need to find your niche or your focus. So the question you need to ask yourself is “What kind of make up artist do I want to be?”. Think about what specific groups or categories you’d want to focus on because each group entails different training, tools and experience. For example, think about whether you’d want to focus on weddings, movie, TV and theater  if you’d want to work in beauty counters or if you want to dive into fashion and editorial make up artistry. Make sure you do some research on which niche you want to focus on to gain more insight into the requirements, responsibilities and other important details that you need to know to help you decide on which would be the right niche for you.

3. Getting the Right Tools Philippines Make Up Brushes

Like any other artist, you can never get by without the right make up tools and the goal is to build the perfect make up kit to aid you in your profession. You’ll find this easier once you’ve had formal training so don’t worry about not knowing which tools to select. One thing you should also remember is that you should never be afraid to invest or spend on your tools. Your tools are crucial in performing the right services and high quality tools are necessary for you to be able to perform better.

4.Training, Training and Training

Some make up artists may feel that formal training is no longer necessary if you’ve got the eye and the flair for make up artistry. They fail to realize that make up artistry is a craft that should also be learned even if it’s just the basics of make up application. Taking formal training such as short courses and make up workshops in the Philippines can help you discover and learn more about make up artistry than there is to the eye. Certain skills, make up techniques and aspects in make up application can only be learned through training and continuous enhancement of your skills can greatly

Do not be afraid to invest in formal training because this, first and foremost, can be crucial in helping you make decisions regarding your career.

5. Building Your Portfolio

Every make up artist has a portfolio and this is very important especially when it comes to networking and showcasing your projects to gain more clients. Nowadays, online portfolio’s are preferred by both artists and clients as this makes it easier for both parties to display, share and view projects. When building your portfolio make sure you have a wide of range of looks, age and skin types, as suggested in, and make sure you have high quality photographs to ensure the clarity of these photos. Once you’ve built your portfolio you will find it easier to engage in self promotion, branding and networking.
