Kit Focus: Condensing The Liquid Foundations In Your Makeup Kit
One of the biggest challenges I face is having to constantly add new products to my kit, while simultaneously reducing the size and weight of my kit. That sounds like the most contradictory statement in history, no? Yet, it is a very real conundrum for most of us makeup artists. I’m going to show you how to reduce one of the biggest offenders in taking up kit space: foundation bottles. Not only are they bulky, they can also be very heavy depending on the material they are made from. In reality, carrying the entire bottle is pointless. If you’re purchasing quality foundation, chance are, you’re only using 3-4 quirts of foundation; not half a bottle. So, let’s take a look at my favorite way to take the bulk out of my foundation supply!
Muji sells the best containers for this, in my opinion (my second choice being the Container Store).
The reason I am really partial to the Muji PE Cylinder Bottle with Snap Cap is  the bottle is “squishy” yet the top is solid and leak-proof, and  They only cost $1.25 each! Here is a close-up of the bottle:
My goal is to reduce the size and weight of my foundation supply by more than half!
 Liquid Foundations (I’m using FACE Atelier *THE BEST EVER*)
 Muji PE Cylinder Bottles with Snap Cap
 Labeler of some sort (or even blank labels & a Sharpie)
What I do is very simple:
 Create the labels.
 Pump the foundation CAREFULLY into the bottle unti it’s about 8/10 full
 Screw on the cap and attach the label
 Keep going until you’re done!
Congratulations! You have reduced the size of your kit by a warehouse, and the weight by 600 pounds! The new storage solution weights next-to-nothing, and I can easily refill the bottles when I start to run out.
