The Ultimate mini face kit for makeup touch ups is finally here, because of one woman's desire to make staying glamorous more practical. With more than 15 years experience working with luminaries in the entertainment industry, Glam Kitti Creator, Monifa Mortis has been apart of countless glam squads.
Whether it was the American Music Awards or a White House ceremony, Monifa often found herself needing to provide a makeup touch up-kit that would help her clients keep their look camera-ready when she had to leave their side.
Makeup Artists and Makeup Enthusiasts both experience the same challenge--how to carry essential makeup products in a convenient yet stylish way.
So after two years of development, Monifa invented the Glam Kitti--a unique, practical, compact and stylish beauty accessory designed to carry 7 different cosmetic items.
Why Is This Important?
This is an exciting moment in beauty history; finally, a cosmetic case designed specifically for the purpose of carrying only a sample-sized amount of makeup. This is not only perfect for quick and easy reapplication but it's also the newest way for beauty lines to provide cosmetic samples to their clients.
Glam Kitti is the game changer that every makeup fan has been waiting for. There has never been a product like this on the market until now. The patent-pending Glam Kitti is a beauty breakthrough, the absolute first of it's kind.
