Go to clairs and get the glitter eye shadow!!! Its a gel sort of pallet. 

Oooh that's an awesome idea! As well as maybe pigments, I forgot to add on my list.. & a white foundation such as Illamasqua's Rich Liquid one for getting the perfect shade of foundation or concealer! Especially for extremely fair skin.. & I totally forgot to add highlighters & lip stains!

I use the green tea moisturizer by proactive! I don't have acne & I don't use the whole proactive system. only the green tea moisturizer but I'm obsessed with it. it doesn't have a smell, is light & reall keeps your skin moisturized. even in the dry months of the summer! I love it!

BH cosmetics blush and concealer and foundation pallet because u can mix and also a mixing panel really good u can get at Imats if u know wat that is

Try Bioderma for makeup removal.. Incredibly gentle, won't irritate your client's faces & has a very good reputation amongst MUA's! xx

Thanks Dolls.. i'm gonna look into each of the products.... Also I have been trying different concealers.. i'm looking for one with heavier coverage for my clients that are going through Radiation and the after effects of cancer.. Any suggestions??????

Nappy bags - perfect for putting rubbish in. nothing worse then a dirty makeup station with yucky tissues and makeup wipes everywhere.
Selection of false eyelashes. I usually pack to suit the photoshoot or occasion.
Spatula and a metal mixing palette - it's sanitary and great for mixing products. The back of the hand is a 'no no'.

@Tierra C.- I have a Ben Nye concealer wheel in my kit - can be a little thick on dry skin but i like to mix it with a little foundation. I also have a Temptu concealer wheel for airbrushing. Its like silk on the skin and covers blemishes, scars, discoloration beautifully.

Jacqueline! What a great list!! I am not sure if I missed it on there but one thing I always bring with me on jobs (in addition to all of the items on your AMAZING list) is water in a spray bottle--always find it useful!

It is quite the splurge but the OCC Lip Tar entire line. It has proven worthy and very useful.
