What's in Mimi's Professional Makeup Artist Kit?

A professional Makeup Artist’s kit is a reflection of years of testing, curating and editing of only the best, tried and true products. Every Makeup Artist has their favourite products, and mine lean towards the high-end luxury and pro-only cosmetic lines. While every commercially available, drugstore brand has a few knock out items, I do place my professional confidence in the following products. This is a small example of some recognizable items that I stock in my kit.
