Help with Building My Starter Makeup Artist Kit

Hey Beauty Fanatics,

Hope your Monday went well! Aside from spending a fun day with the fam during Spring Break, I have been thinking about what items I should get for my kit. I just wanted to show you the eyeshadows and pressed pigments that I have in my collection. Since I'm building my makeup kit, I need some recommendations for eyeshadow colors, foundations (including brands), setting powders, moisturizers, blush, lipsticks, and anything else you all think that I should purchase.

Here's what I have so far for eyeshadows:

Top Row: Naked Pigment, Tan Pigment, Soft Brown, Woodwinked, Cocomotion Pigment

Middle Row: Ricepaper, Chocolate Brown Pigment, Corduroy, Go, Vintage Gold

Bottom Row: Naked Lunch, Vanilla Pigment, Espresso, Mulch, Henna

Top Row: Teal Pigment, Empty, Vex, Empty, Empty

Middle Row: Empty, Stars N Rockets, Cranberry, Mauvement Pigment, Dark Soul Pigment

Bottom Row: Empty, Sketch, Star Violet, Empty, Carbon

Top Row: Next to Nothing, Satin Taupe
Bottom Row: Showstopper, Smoking


MAC 187 (Stippling), 188 (Small Stippling), 190 (Foundation), 109 (Small Contour), 116 (Blush), 129 (Powder/Blush), 239 (Eyeshadow), 217 (Crease/Blending), 219 (Pencil), 224 (Crease/Blending), 226 (Crease/Blending), 242 (Shader)

Coastal Scents Duo Fiber (Stippling), Pink Round Crease Brush, Italian Badger Angle Blush, Sable Blending Brush, Tapered Crease Brush, Pink Angle Taklon Liner

I plan on starting with weddings, graduations, and proms. So, I am thinking that I will probably need to get some matte browns & neutrals for all skintones. Any and all suggestions and tips are greatly appreciated.

I got some great suggestions from Ren of makeupbyrenren, Judy of itsjudytime, and Tiffany of MakeupByTiffanyD, and would love to hear from you! Please comment below.
