These are most of the things you should have in your beauty toolbox. If you’re going to use your camera or phone for photos, make sure you have whatever you need to keep them charged. A lighted makeup mirror is a must have in our opinion. Ring lights can be inexpensive depending on the size. And if you’re planning on doing this as a business, don’t forget to have professional business cards made.
