MUA Top Fives: Christmas Gifts for Makeup Artists
Finding the ideal Christmas present can be stressful at this festive time of year, especially for the makeup artists who has it all... so we thought we would try and make it easier for you.
Whether you're looking for the perfect Secret Santa present for a friend, stocking filler ideas for your flatmate or a Christmas gift for loved ones (we obviously mean yourself), The Makeup Armoury offers a wide range of Christmasmas gift ideas for all!
So, if you haven't already written your Christmas list, let us help provide some inspiration...
1. MAQ PRO GRAND PALETTE
As far as presents go, this is definitely something that should be on the top of your list.
This extensive palette gives you everything that you could ever need as a makeup artist. Containing no less than 36 carefully selected, natural wax based water resistant colours, this palette provides you with every colour you could ever need to complete a huge range of makeups. From a stunning beauty makeup, a broken down effect to being used on colour prosthetics - just thin down with IPA (99%) and apply to create endless creative looks.
At the price point of £265 this definitely isn't a stocking filler... but allowing yourself the freedom and confidence to carry one palette is worth splashing out on.
2. STYLPRO BRUSH CLEANER AND DRIER
If you haven't already bought yourself the best gadget created for makeup artists (EVER), then now is the time to get your hands on this life changing device.
As makeup artists we spend most of our days disinfecting, cleaning and conditioning dirty brushes. Now is the time to simplify that duty and move into the new age, where cleaning and drying takes minutes instead of hours (even if you have 50 brushes to clean...)
Give yourself the gift of convenience this Christmas, for the price of £49.99.
3. FOREVER PUFF
A gift to the environment and yourself, these adorable puffs are perfect gifts or stocking fillers.
Available in 5 different varieties from Mini, the smallest of the designs, to Bod, the largest size designed for body applications - you'll find one for every purpose. Handmade with the highest quality fabrics and anti-bacterial materials, Forever Puffs are machine washable and dry-able, designed to last a very long time even after heavy use, making them perfect gifts!
Priced from £11.50 - £14.00
4. BETTE SET BAG
If you've ever heard a Makeup Artist state that they have too many set bags, you are in with the wrong crowd. This multi-functional, free-standing set bag is a makeup artist’s best friend, fitted with 6 internal pockets and an external tissue pocket, detachable shoulder straps and internal elasticated fabric, allowing easy access to brushes.
Rapidly becoming our most popular set bag, this is generous sized set bag is double the size of "The Judy" set bag and handmade in the UK using heavy duty materials.
At £39.50 this bag is almost a steal.
5. ALCONE TWISSOR TOOL
The Twissor Tool is one of those products that once you use it, you don't know how you ever lived without it,
Considered to be the "Ultimate Grooming Scissor”, it is perfect for trimming brows. The Twissor cuts hair incredibly close to the skin without cutting the skin, ideal for grooming facial hair (nose, lip, chin, and ears included). The Twissor is durable and incredibly easy to use.
If grooming isn't your vibe, this handy little tool is also amazing for seaming silicone, safely trimming prosthetics and so much more.
£16.50 will get you your new favourite kit bag essential.
The Makeup Armoury will close for Christmas on the 22nd and will reopen on the 2nd of January. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support this year and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
