My Top 5 Products
Ok, so I like to think I have a relatively minimal kit as it is but this is hard! What I have also decided to do is paint up a few designs you can do with the 5 products I have chosen, because I think it can be very easy to forget just how versatile our products can be!
1: Well, by Kate’s same logic, if your brushes are all in one pot or a brush folder and there was a fire you’d be able to grab that right? But if I had to narrow it down to the bare minimum, I think I could get away with, it would be my Pink Tip Short 3/4 angle brush (don’t forget you can double load this like with the flora brushes, that’s how I did the batman below!), a Flora Brush (although I didn’t use this on the board below), a Filbert Brush and my PXP Round 5
2: DFX Black and White. I’ve tried other black and whites and DFX always comes back as my favourite for face painting. I do prefer the Mehron Paradise Black for Body Painting, there is nothing with a more matte finish, but for Face Painting DFX wins every time.
3: I love my DFX Mega Melon Rainbow Cake! It’s so versatile, and there’s no reason you couldn’t use it as a one stroke, with the rose colour on one side and the leaf colour on the other. It’s so great for butterflies, fairies, unicorns and flowers, and if your going for minimalism you need to be able to get the most out of your kit!
4: I would also chose Mehron Paradise Red. I love this red for Spiderman, and by the time you’ve got your Black and White too, you’ve then got the rest of the design.
5: My Sponge bag! I never used to use sponges when I started, but they make life so much easer especially when your using rainbow cakes, and with the other products above, it allows for different textures too
Here are some more design ideas for just these products:
There are probably loads more, the only limit is our creativity! I may actually see how many designs I can do at my next gig only using these products. I’ll bring everything else too of course but it would be interesting to see how I get on! If I could squeeze another couple of bits in there it would be a liquid bling, a gold bio-degradable glitter mix and Global Magenta. I would love to hear what your top 5 products would be and can’t wait to see what the other bloggers have to say!
I’m working on a couple of bigger blog posts at the moment too, so would love to know if you have any questions on those topics before I get them sent in! I did film a makeup tutorial, but I’m going to be refilming that, so anything you would like me to cover please let me know! I am also working on a post or maybe a video on the importance of having a website and how to set one up, so again, any questions on that let me know!
