When it comes to makeup for professional application, it’s obviously important to fill your kit with high-performing and long-lasting products. Whether it’s for an editorial photoshoot, wedding, prom, or even clown makeup, you can find it at Graftobian Make-Up Company. More importantly, it’s the best quality product that you can put on your client.
Graftobian is an extensive line of both beauty and special FX makeup aimed toward makeup artists. While you don’t technically need to be a seasoned artist to use these products, Graftobian’s offerings speak for themselves in terms of kit building. The amazing HD Super Palette features 18 shades of crème foundation in 3 varying undertones to cater to all skin tones, and the Warm Palette is Graftobian’s most popular. The foundation itself packs a ton of pigment, so a little goes a very long way – this makes the value of the palette incredible. The crème glides across the skin easily but does not feel tacky, though it doesn’t dry down matte either. It offers versatility in that you are easily able to mix it with primer or moisturizer, customizing coverage as needed. Using HD Crème alone gives full, complete coverage – so it also makes an amazing concealer for blemishes and uneven texture. Remember, the key with this makeup is to use as little as possible. Scrape just a bit with an artist spatula and work with the product on a non-porous palette – it will make a world of a difference in application.
Similar to the consistency of HD Super Palette is the Global Corrector Super Palette. Again, this is an absolute must for makeup artists. It includes everything from green to orange and red to pink tones for a client’s correcting needs. Many artists underestimate the power of a corrector, but it’s a resource that you’ll want to have when a situation arises in which you’re desperate to cover stubborn circles or pigmentation. Bonus tip: use Graftobian’s GlamourGrip Sponge to blend cremes from this palette. The sponge’s shape fits so well into contours of the face, and using it damp provides a naturally airbrushed effect.
Next on the list of kit musts are Eye and Lip Liner Pro Pencils. These, in particular, are special. They are oversized at just over 7 inches long (genius, really) and do not drag on the eyelids or lip line. The quality is there in terms of how the product is actually made, as well – the pencils don’t snap or break when sharpened, ever. Highly recommended colors are Black Velvet, Dark Chocolate, and Cocoa Bean on the eyes and Nude, Natural, and Crushed Berry for lips. These 6 make a great starting point for both neutral and dramatic looks you may have on your client’s request.
People have long been purchasing Graftobian for incredible makeup (since 1978!) and it’s really no wonder. These prize products are just the tip of the iceberg; to check out all Graftobian has to offer, head to their website.
