Vlog: Inside the Beauty Box with Andrea & Her New Zuca!

By Andrea Claire · April 3, 2010 · 0 Comments ·

Over the years (20 to be exact - OUCH!)  I have had many hair and make up kits come and go. My long time favourite has been my vintage circa 1993, MAC aluminum kit which I need to replace the rivets... for the second time.

Well - it's no (beauty) secret that us make up junkies/artists tote around every colour under the sun; just see for yourself as I take you through both my hair and make up kits as I organize them into my new Zuca Pro! There is more to my kit than you see, pins, capes, elastics etc but this is about 87.6% of it,  afterall, if you've seen one pair of scissors, you've seen them all!

Here are 2 versions. I know, a little anal but... you have a choice of seeing a complete tour of Andrea Claire's hair & make up kit or since a lot of us artists have an attention span of a 8 month old spider monkey - you can 'Just Cut to the Case!'

 Now - I know I look tired! We can't always look good. I call it 'tired, organizing to move chic'! But I am wearing make up - albeit very little!

Foundation: Rae Cosmetics Climate Control Mineral Tint - SPF 20 (I'm testing this one out - day 2 and so far I like it.)


Blush: Jemma Kidd Blushwear Cheek in Paw Paw. I really do love this blush! Blends well and just enough colour.






Eyeliner: Cargo High Pigment Pencils in brown. I applied this only to the top inner rim for a smidge of definition.




I did curl my lashes, but then that's all! I know: Where is my concealer?!? Mascara?  Well... again, we can't ALWAYS look good!


Zoie Jean had a little sidebar to add. You can sit on it, you can pull it and as every toddler knows how... you can push it! :)

PS: Zoie would like you to know that we paid for our Zuca Arist Pro. Although we aren't against gifts - this was not. :)

thank you so much for this vid! I have watched so many while trying to decide if I really did need the Zuca pro artist case, and the backpack... I've been toting around 2 traincases full of makeup and a small carryon for hair stuff. I was afraid that it wouldn't all fit, but after watching your vid, I am sure it will. Thanks again!
p.s. Love your assistant...she's adorable!!!

I love my Zuca! Do let me know how you like yours when you get it.

I love my assistant too! She's lousy at cleaning brushes though :)
