Tutor Kit Tips - Lynsey Maxwell

Posted on January 21 2019

We asked Academy Tutor Lynsey Maxwell some questions about her favourite makeup brands and products. This is what she had to say: 

What is your favourite type of makeup look to create and why? 

I love an effortless glossy makeup look. For me, that’s what Makeup is all about,   It’s so refreshing yet timeless.

What is your favourite brand for makeup brushes? 

Zoeva and Suqqu brushes

What other essential items do you carry in your kit?

My actual kit bag (Zuca) is amazing and I couldn’t be without it. It’s important to always have items for yourself in your kit for when you’re on location (waterproof, umbrella, spf). I also always carry a survival bag that has anything and everything you could want, paracetamol, plasters, sewing kit. It’s always nice to be able to help out if something pops up on set!
