With fashion week season in full swing, social media feeds are filled with behind the scenes images of makeup artist kit bags laid out in all their glory. Row upon row of foundations, blushers, eye shadows, illuminators and brushes that you never even knew you needed but now you do. We have put together the ideal makeup artist kit that you can use from the comfort of your own home.

It is not often talked about, but the constant application, removal and reapplication of make-up, coupled with travel and irregular hours can wreak havoc on a model’s skin. At This Works we have been working with makeup artists for years, supplying products for kit bags that help to counter-balance some of these skin concerns.

Use our hero products to look like a model off the runway...

Clean Skin 5-in-1 and In Transit No Traces

Cleansing is one of the most crucial steps for any makeup artist to get right. This is especially true during times such as fashion week where models go from job to job, without a break. Cleanse too abrasively in preparation for the next show and even the freshest faced model can see their complexion turn red and angry from all the rubbing.

Two of the products we see most often called in by makeup artists are Clean Skin 5-in-1 and In Transit No Traces, as they both effectively remove all traces of pollution and makeup, yet are gentle enough to maintain the skin’s PH balance; refreshing, cooling and toning as they go.

The only choice to make is whether you prefer the convenience and portability of the pre-infused In Transit No Traces, or the more traditional cleanser and cotton wool scenario. Personally we have both – Clean Skin 5-in-1 in our bathrooms and an In Transit No Traces supply in our desks or handbags for the switch-up from day to night looks.

In Transit Camera Close-Up

A mask, moisturiser and primer in one! For enhanced skin up close, this portable pick-me-up evens skin-tone, plumps and brightens instantly to create a perfect canvas.

Massaged into the skin, it is a high performance super-blend of plant oils, Hyaluronic Acid, Caffeine and Bio Boost, which work to rebuild and protect the skin's barrier from environmental aggressors, counterbalance redness and reduce the appearance of wrinkles to leave skin naturally radiant.

Since its launch in 2012 In Transit Camera Close-Up has been a makeup artist staple, and is renowned for its versatility and ability to deliver hydration and radiance to all skin types and tones.

Energy Bank Skin Glow

Worn under makeup or alone, this serum gives skin a subtle, energised glow, super-charging hydration levels and enhances lacklustre skin.

Regularly called in by some of the world’s most renowned makeup artists, it is packed with Green Algae and Corn Seed Extract to boost the skin’s natural protective function, Vitamin C and Red Algae Extract to fight environmental aggressors and improve skin tone, Hyaluronic Acid to visibly plump and hydrate the complexion, and golden mineral particles to illuminate and diffuse skin imperfections.

An insider tip from our recent shoot with makeup artist Gemma Aldous, is to mix a little Energy Bank Skin Glow with Energy Bank Sun Flash for a subtle bronzer and instant pick-me up.
