Please note – that the kit photos and description reflect what is usually in the Delamar kit. Each year the kit has a value of around £1,800. Due to availability of stock and the up-grading of some products, this kit may change slightly from what you see below. We try to keep this post as updated as possible.
Products – the love affair and arsenal of every make-up artist. We adore products and know how much our students do too! Many of our students are total product junkies, brandishing their Kat Von D Shade & light palettes and Morphe brushes in class, absolutely allowed but not necessary! We feel a sense of duty to their product obsession and professional requirements, to get the Delamar kit right. We take pride in selecting the best professional products, tried and tested, recommended by tutors to form the basis of a kit appropriate for professional jobs. For a long time after finishing their courses, we see photos on social media of these kits, laid out for jobs, full of the original products supplied by us.
In the gallery above you will see the following products totalling a retail value of over £1,800 . This is supplied to our 1 year Cert HE Professional Make-up Design course, the Advanced Complete Make-up Artist Course and the Complete Make-up Artist course. Our 5 week summer hair and make-up course has a slightly different kit, which excludes the special effects product – this kit is worth almost £900.

Some stand-out products that appear in almost every film & TV make-up artist’s kit
Many of the more commercial products are so well known and easy to research, so we have decided to give a run down on the lesser-known, more niche products:
FX Skin Illustrator Palette – relatively unknown outside of the film & TV world; a brilliantly versatile palette of waterproof colours to create everything from injuries, bruises, beauty make-up, splatters, ageing and many more effects. This is alcohol based and requires IPA to become emollient.
Kryolan Dermacolour Camouflage Palette – The original cover-up and corrector, this palette has an array of colours to cover-up tattoos, acne or other skin conditions. The longevity of this product is maintained with the use of fixing sprays and powders, which our students are taught how to use.
Bdellium Brushes – One of the market leading pioneers in make-up artist brushes, these brushes are essential for most artists and a brand professionals return to time and time again. There are lots of great brands out there, but we spy these brushes in the kits of our tutors… so if it’s good enough for them…!
