Many makeup artists, myself included, lug around our tools, accessories and miscellaneous items needed for the client or event. I bring with me a portable table, makeup chair, a set bag, makeup kit, mirror with lights and another set of lights to boost the lighting system that I have. Apparently one set of lights is not enough. Sometimes my set up is lit like a coliseum.
During the Masterclass workshop with Bobby, I asked him what he brought with him to shoots, clients and events. I was pretty much surprised how light he travels.

The Flash palette is such a versatile product and when he demonstrated how this palette can be used in multiple ways, we were hooked. In fact, we had to dig up our little stash of products to find this. Every makeup artist should have one. When you’re caught in a situation where you had nothing to work on in a shoot or in a client, this is the palette to have. It will save you from getting fired from a job. Did you know you can use this to customize a foundation color?

Makeup kits of artists vary from artist to artist, but I find that the more seasoned and popular artists such as Bobby, who have seen so much in all of his years of experience, tend to condense their kit mainly because they know what simply works and can improvise many looks based on a slimmed down kit.
Aside from his creative genius and good looks, Bobby is the most generous teacher you can imagine, constantly sharing his tips and techniques to make you work smarter, faster and better. Beauty need not be complicated, Kemerut….
