As a makeup artist, one of the things I sometimes with is finding the best tool belt to use, especially when working on location. We all have set bags and those are great, but many of us prefer to have out brushes at our finger tips and keep other essentials like loose powder in the set bag.
After researching and trying several makeup artist tool belts I decided to write this article to share my discovery with you.
Things to consider when choosing a Makeup Artist tool belt
- Like foundations and the makeup we use, all makeup tool belts are different, be sure to find the one that will best suit your needs.
- Make sure the belt has enough capacity to hold your makeup brushes and a few accessories.
- Will the makeup artist belt fit comfortably around your waist or over your shoulder? You don’t want a belt that has a strap that will not be comfortable or stay put.
- Is the strap adjustable? If so, will it be long enough or wide enough?
- Will your brush handles fit without falling?
- Is the professional makeup tool belt easy to clean and care for?
- Is the Makeup Artist tool belt light-weight? If the belt is heavy empty, no matter how fabulous, you may hesitate to use it because it’s simply too much to carry once you add your brushes.
