What's in MY kit

As per request, I've taken pictures of what I carry daily in my kit.  I have a LOT of stuff that I don't bring and that I didn't take pictures of but maybe one day I will and share that as well.  I do a lot of commercial, catalog, TV/Film etc. so I mostly carry and use neutrals.  Any questions on particular colors or brands please feel free to ask me.  So with further adieu, here is my kit:

My skin care stuff:
From Left to Right:  Embryolisse Moisturizer, MUFE Eye Makeup Remover, Maybelline Makeup Remover, Parian Spirit Brush Cleaner, Alcohol, Toner, Hand Sanitizer
I use these mostly for print work:
Top - Black Opal Stick Foundations: Black Walnut, Heavenly Honey, Hazel Nut
Bottom - From Left to Right: Face Atelier  #0-, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, 0+

I use these A LOT for Film/TV work.  I use the same 3 colors and mix them with each other.  I carry more than one of the same color just to make sure I don't run out in the middle of a job.  With these 3 colors I make it work for pretty much everyone.
The first 3 are #118, the two after that is #128 and the last one is #177

MUFE Camo Palette Concealers #1 & #4
MUFE Camo Concealers Singles (since I'm running out) #14 & #15
Graftobian Palette Warm #3 (I use it as both concealers and foundations)
Eye Palettes
Left Side from Top: Kat Von D Palette in Beethoven, Diane Brill Eyeshadow Singles in Belgian Lace & Lace Ribbons, Ramy Cream Shadow Quad
Right Side - Top: A mix of different shadows all in one Z Palette, Bottom - Crown Brush Neutral Palette.  Most of the colors are surprisingly good.
