My Makeup Train case with Lights!

Since I do freelance Makeup and Hair it is crucial for me to have a train case and for the past 4 years I have been using my small one for my gigs. Its perfect for jobs like photo shoots, prom, graduation, and the like and I'm very happy with it but as time pass by I got more and more bookings for weddings with means more stuff to carry and working for longer hours and this medium sized train case is not going to cut it so I finally decided to get a trolley with lights. 

This is what I could fit in my medium sized train case, on the bottom part is a deeper compartment where I can put some hair stuff and my airbrush compressor but I still always have to carry a big bag for my brush belt and other hair tools. 


I've had this large trolley with lights for about 5 months now and I got it from GlamourFaceandBodyArt . I take it with me mostly on weddings and whenever I do makeup in hotels because I cant control the lighting in some rooms because you never know if the client is staying in a well lit room or not.
On the left side of the mirror you will find the dimmer which allows you to control the light if you want it dim or bright. The light cord is found below the dimmer you plug one end of the cord into the case and the other end to an outlet.

On the left side are two outlets which you can use for your airbrush or hair styling tools.

 The train case cost Php 7,500.00 ($158.00)
Shipping was about Php Php 1,300.00  ($27.00)
and I had to switch to LED lights which cost around Php 600 for all 6 bulbs ($13.00)
with a total of Php 9,400 ($ 198)

I have absolutely no regrets in investing on this case because it necessary for a MUA like me who doe makeup where ever the client is and not in a salon or studio. Click here to check out the specs of this case. 

Thank you so much for reading!
Take care!
