WHAT KIT DO I NEED?

Look into any make up artist’s kit and you’ll see each one is different to the next one. This is the beauty of what we do. We develop our own tastes and styles and preferred use of brands. At fat mu we advise and expose you to excellent products in class but it is up to the student to buy their own palettes, brushes, tools, pots and paints! This is done for a reason, each student must learn to develop a sense of working as a freelancer and learn where to shop, what to look for and how to test and try products by themselves. All part of learning this craft, essential for YOU to build relationships with suppliers and advise your clients too.

We promise to hold your hands along the way and help you with this exciting process by telling you where to go, brands and cosmetics that we love in India and on the international market and importantly who offers discounts to fat mu students.

PRODUCTS TOOLS MISC
  • A start up make-up kit (kit list options will be sent through on enrolment )
  • A start-up brush kit (kit lists will be sent through on enrolment)
  • All brushes and make-up bought by each student is not included in the tutelage fee. Each student kit is individual to that student, and is bought by the student through the course duration! This is a good working practice for being a professional and well rounded artist

IN CLASS PRODUCTS:

Knowing your products and brands is an essential part of being a make-up artist. Apart from our tried and tested must haves we also believe in giving our students a feel of new brands and innovative products. We believe in products that work and not just gimmicks or fads.
