“FOCUS:  Artist’s Kit Building Series”
Determining which product takesthe coveted place in your kit can be one of the most difficult decisions for the professional artist.  With so many options available artists can spend too much time and money in the process of perusing and purchasing makeup or even get stuck in staying with the same product they have always used.  The Makeup Show Kit Focus Feature Area is designed to give you the opportunity to compare and contrast products from the same category by looking, feeling and revealing the facts and fundamentals that separate one from another allowing every artist to make a more informed purchasing decision.  Take this opportunity to touch each product, talk to a group of your peers and take time to decide for yourself which product becomes one of your must have kit items.
