So you just completed your final training as a Makeup Artist and you’re ready to start beating those faces. First step is to begin building your Makeup Kit which can be a bit of a challenge when you’re starting out as an Artist. Makeup these days can be pricey, especially products from the popular cult brands like Fenty Beauty, Huda Beauty, Artist Couture or luxury brands like Lancome or MAC, coupled with the fact that you’ve just started and you’re not quite raking in the clients yet. Well let’s praise the makeup god’s for Julia! Julia is an Associate Makeup Artist at popular makeup house Doranne Beauty, and she is known for her ‘nack’ at finding cheaper alternatives for more expensive products; these are termed ‘duplicates’ or ‘dupes’ in the beauty world.
In this post Julia shares with us 5 Dupes, she personally uses on her clients, that give her similar results to the original (more expensive) product:
1. MAC COSMETICS BROWS STYLER ‘SPIKED’
2. DIOR ADDICT LIP MAXIMISER
3. TARTE MARACUJA OIL
4. MAC STUDIO FIX POWDER
5. MAC PREP+PRIME FIX+ SPRAY
