Creative practice: Makeup artistry
Brushes (main tools to deposit pigments onto the face
Sponges: For blending and pressing
Disposable applicators: For hygiene,
Caboodle: For storage and travelling
Spatula: for scooping products and hygiene
Mixing palette: for mixing products
Problems faced: During a busy shoot, an artist on job needs to be quick and fast— without compromising on hygiene, thus there is less room for mistakes and corrections. Usually, correction is done by using a makeup remover— often big and clunky and not as precise. Having an mistake correcting “eraser” that is close to you help save time as you don’t need to keep going back to your stash to find your remover.
Another thing of issue would be the organisation of brushes. Usually they are splayed out on the desk in a brush roll, and are stuffed full of brushes. When things get hectic, it is difficult to find things in general. Hence, having a wearable mobile brush holder would give the artist more speed when she needs to switch up her packing brush to her blending brushes.
Idea 1: mistake correcting bracer
A wristguard that functions as a portable makeup remover + q-tip holder. The waterproof pouch attached holds enough liquid for an entire shoot and can be easily refilled.
Idea 2: A brush roll belt
The belt enables you to attach any brush roll on it so you could wear them on your waist. Basically a fanny pack for brushes. It could be adjusted so that the size of the belt fits your waist. While it may sound quite useless, I think the quick DIY could save artists money on buying multiple brush belts if they already have many brush rolls due to the customisability.
