Eyeshadow Primer Potion
INDUSTRY BUZZ What's In Your Kit?
Brooklyn-based freelance make-up artist Katie Pellegrino always has a bare-bones kit ready to go, although she often compiles a supplemental kit for certain jobs to handle hair or effects. "If a job involves straight make-up with no hair, I can fit everything into a small backpack or a Zuca rolling kit," she says. "I try to change it up, depending on my mood or the weather, but it cannot exceed 40 pounds." (Pellegrino faces a half-mile walk and subway stairs on her way to jobs.) She does, however, take a car home after a shoot because, she says, "I am part princess at heart." Here she describes the contents of her kit:
