You may be thinking that all makeup artists only shop at Sephora and Ulta or other major retailers of beauty, but the truth may actually surprise you: we really don’t necessarily shop where consumers buy their products. In fact, more often than not, we either shop for our stuff at trade shows or online. Why? Well, there’s a whole WORLD of professional quality makeup that you may have never heard of...and believe it or not, it’s the stuff that we use on your favorite celebrities and that you see in advertisements, concerts, film and the red carpet! Yes, really! Want to know where to buy our favorite goods? Keep reading!
Frends Beauty Supply Store - Established in 1940, this company not only carries Pro brands, but also stuff you’d find at major retailers too! An industry one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs, they not only offer discounts for working professionals, but also for regular consumers too! As one of the world’s largest professional beauty focused establishments that is open to the public, Frends has all of my favorite brands in one place! From well known industry brands like RCMA, Danessa Myricks, and Face Atelier to the more well known consumer favorites like Makeup Forever, Stila, Viseart, and Kevyn Aucoin, they really do have it all! And it’s not just makeup they carry, either! They have skincare from brands like(my all time favorite) Sonia Roselli, Skyn Iceland, Caudalie, and Bioderma, as well as haircare from brands like Batiste, Biosilk, and Christophe Robin. And let’s not forget about all the tools, lighting(helloooooo The Makeup Light!), and other beauty essentials they offer! On top of carrying everything you could ever ask for, their customer service is second to none. Don’t believe me? Go check out their website! You’ll likely stop shopping anywhere else! You can shop at Frends Beauty on their website at www.frendsbeauty.com
Muse Beauty Pro - I know that you know by now how much I absolutely adore Viseart, so it should come as no surprise that I almost always buy my palettes from this company. They regularly have palettes from the brand before anyone else does, and on top of it, also have promotions for other amazing freebies when making a purchase with them. They carry a lot of my favorite brands that Frends carries, but also carry exclusives like their amazing Esum brushes, pencils and tools, as well as other brands I love like B3 Balm and the ever so popular Alcone. They also have sanitization essentials like Jao and Beauty So Clean, as well as offering certifications such as Bactrokill C3...which is more necessary than ever these days!
