Makeup artistry is a growing industry, but often, it’s hard to find professional products available for purchase all in the one place. RY wants MUAs to be able to pick up their go-to tools and cosmetics with the utmost ease, so we set out to offer them a one stop shop for all their makeup needs. Thus, the MUA Shop was born! Curated by the incredibly talented Makeup by Jaz, this is bound to be our most exciting venture yet!
We’ve gathered some of our favourite brands, all of which offer nothing but the best quality products. Every avenue is covered, with unique, tailored categories that include Theatrical & Halloween and Bridal & Photography. We’ve also broken things down by function, so grabbing a hold of your favourite lipsticks, foundations, brow products and more has never been simpler.
Make your way through our MUA Shop (slowly, so you don’t miss anything!) and watch that cart fill up with some gorgeous, high quality products perfect for any makeup junkie’s kit, professional or otherwise.
In order to create dramatic looks suitable for the stage or the scariest night of the year, you’ve gotta know where to shop. Thankfully, our new MUA Shop has broken it all down for our loyal customers, with a dedicated Theatrical & Halloween section featuring some of our craziest and most coveted products.
Think brightly coloured shadows and glitters from Gorgeous Cosmetics, high coverage foundation from Kryolan and unique liquid lipsticks from Ofra. L.A. Girl are there for you when it comes to creating definition in the face, with their easy-to-use highlighting and contouring products. Of course, we can’t forget about Mehron when it comes to theatrical makeup – this new brand on site has been around for almost 100 years, and is known for creating some of the most stunning, theatrical looks ever. Design long-wearing looks that’ll stand out amongst the crowd with products from our favourite pro brands.
Whether you’re the blushing bride herself, or an MUA in charge of creating flawless looks on clients, we know wedding prep can be stressful! Or, maybe you’re getting organised for a photography session and need to look airbrushed in front of the camera! Give yourself a little peace of mind when it comes to picking out and purchasing the products you’ll need with our dedicated Bridal & Photography section.
Smooth out your complexion with the NIOD Photography Fluid, a unique foundation-like product designed to correct imbalances and boost radiance. Hylamide have also got a fab photography foundation on offer, so maybe it’s time to grab one (or both!) and put it to the test? Then, give cheeks a rosy glow with a mineral blush from Becca. MUAs will find creating complementary looks for bridal parties easy with the stunning neutral palettes available from Pixi by Petra. Top everything off with a subtle pair of lashes from ModelRock, a spritz of the bridal setting spray from Skindinavia and a pretty pink lipstick from Gerard Cosmetics.
Creating a beautiful base is so important, as it sets the tone for your makeup application and gives you a blank canvas to work with! We’ve included some of our favourite face products in the MUA Shop, including primers, foundations, concealers and more.
If you’re after a powder foundation, look no further than Ofra for a high-coverage option, or Jane Iredale for a natural, mineral version that’s both breathable and buildable. Maybe you’re more into a liquid finish? Give Kryolan’s famous TV Paint Stick a go for a super HD look, or check out the many other foundation options in our MUA Shop.
Make maintaining and defining your brows easy with products from Curtis Collection, Napoleon Perdis and more! Whatever kind of brow you’re into, there’s a product suited to your needs in our MUA Shop. Brow experts Garbo & Kelly recently entered the scene with their stunning range of brow pencils, pomades, powders and more! They also offer brow stencils and other cool gadgets that’ll make getting that on-fleek look so easy.
Play up the focal point of your face (spoiler alert: it’s your eyes) with palettes, eyeshadow singles, liners and mascaras from our range of professional brands. Get glittery with Gorgeous Cosmetics, create a smoky look with Youngblood or go au natural with Becca.
Give your skin a bit of a break by incorporating a mineral product or two into your routine! MUAs are loving on mineral formulas, as they’re suited to clients with acne-prone or sensitive skin. Be sure to give mineral-focused brands such as Youngblood, Jane Iredale and Curtis Collection a look in when browsing through our MUA Shop – we promise that they’re just as high quality as their non-mineral counterparts, plus they’re gentle and let the skin breathe throughout the day!
Perfect that pout with our range of professional lip products, ranging from traditional lipsticks through to innovative lip plumpers, lacquers and much more! We love Gerard Cosmetics for their amazing variety of super-pigmented shades and their unbeatable staying power! L.A. Girl are also worth checking out – they’ve got a few different formulas on offer, including a smooth, matte lipstick that’s non-drying, and a thicker, glossy lip lacquer that’ll create the illusion of fuller, plumper lips!
Every aspiring MUA needs a kit with a few handy tools, designed to make application just that little bit easier! Pick up a whole new set of pro-grade brushes from Sigma, with kits suited to contouring, eye definition and more! Maybe you’re in the market for a new pair of tweezers or some lash glue – all of these necessary little extras are also at the ready for you in this section. Make sure to check out Z-Palette, the time and space saving system that lets you depot shadows, blushes and more into one handy palette!
Head on over to our new MUA Shop and check all of the fantastic brands and products for yourself! Whether you’re a seasoned MUA, a beginner practising your artistry or just a makeup fanatic, we hope you love our new category. Let us know what you think in the comments!
I'm a journalism grad and avid makeup fan with an unhealthy addiction to buying nude lipsticks, no matter how similar they all may seem. I love chatting to anyone who will listen about my new favourite products, skincare dos and don'ts and practically any other beauty-related topic under the sun. That doesn't mean I'm frivolous with my recommendations, though--you can count on me to give you the nitty gritty on all your wishlist products. In my spare time, you'll find me binge-watching old episodes of Gilmore Girls or at brunch with a large iced coffee in my hand.
The new season is a great excuse to switch up your look! Discover our top 3 palettes for creating gorgeous autumn makeup looks.
