Downsizing Your Kit

Hey Creatives, 

I'm going in hard with some Virgo organization skills for this one.  I mean organization, compartmentalization, and minimization are key when it come to our makeup kits!

We love to pack more and carry less. This is why we spend time downsizing and compartmentalizing regularly. When you transfer products from their bulky packaging you would be so surprised how much more you can take with you. By bringing more product we are able to meet the needs of creative work and anything else that may be thrown to us on set. So here are our kit downsizing must haves to minimize your kit while maximizing your products.

Muji

Cylinder Bottle with Snap Cap 50 ML- Perfect for carrying many shades of liquid foundation. Make sure you get the squeeze bottle so you can get every last drop of your product out. 

Foundation Travel Bottle

Cylinder Bottle with Snap Cap 100 ML- The larger size is great for Makeup Removers, Micellar Water, and primers. Really anything that's liquid and that you need to carry slightly larger quantities.

Kit containers
