NOTES: Most of my make-up is in a palette form -- that way I don't have to carry a bazillion products in individual containers. The best palettes are:
1. Tricia Sawyer Icon and Essential Palettes -- go to www.triciasawyer.com to view and order product. My favorite palette is called Essential Pretty palette, but I also recommend her Brittany, Sharon, Kate, Scarlett and Regina Palettes. Tricia makes my favorite blush color called Voluptuous. Her palettes are incredible.
2. Tricia Sawyer also makes a palette called The Essentials -- this is a must have for any professional make-up artist. It is a quad palette with 4 colors that can be used for blush, eyeshadow, contouring, browshaping.....the list is endless. This is a must also!!!
3. Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss palette in Bobbi's Favorite colors -- go to www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com to view and order product.
4. Smashbox Lip Palette (ordered off QVC).
I also have two more kits built entirely for Special Effects and Light Hair application. These kits contain many products by Kryolan, Ben Nye, Make-Up Forever, Sebastian, Nick Chavez, blow dryers, flat irons and a host of other "trix" of the trade!!
