What’s in a Makeup Artistry Kit?

Tool and supply kits are commonly issued to new beauty school students, but what tools are actually in them? Every course has its own unique kit, so cosmetology students will get different things from esthetics or makeup students. Not only that, kits can change from year to year or even semester to semester! Because the beauty industry is always changing, we strive to provide the most up-to-date kits for each program. This blog goes over all of the different MUD makeup programs and the kits we provide to our students as of May 2018!

Level 1 – Beauty Essentials

The beauty essentials course is designed to be an introductory makeup program for people who are new to the profession or just looking to learn how to apply basic make-up needs. We cover standard techniques and tools to help the students have a more comprehensive understanding of makeup basics. We start by teaching concepts like facial analysis, base matching and application, correction, contours, and highlights. The program is designed to allow our students to do corrective or natural makeup, and the makeup kit pictured below enables our students to do just that!

The Beauty Essentials makeup kit typically includes:

Level 2 – Bridal Makeup

Our bridal makeup course takes the basics learned in the beauty essentials course and builds upon them. If you are married and had your wedding makeup professionally done, you know it can be very expensive! Wedding makeup is a great way for our graduates to diversify the services they can offer, and wedding makeup can offer some lucrative opportunities! Our students are taught to help the bride and the bride’s family to have a plan, and from there students are also taught additional makeup techniques unique to the bridal business. The kit provided in our MUD Bridal Makeup program gives students all of the basic tools and materials they need to add to their essentials kit to begin doing bridal makeup!
