I was doing my make-up a couple of days ago and I realised that I am quite a ‘fuss-free’ type of person when it comes to my make-up application. It’s compulsory that I get my face on quickly but at the same time, I need to feel like I look ‘put together’ and decent. I have found that I have lately just been using my (clean) hands as tools a lot to save time, but I do have a few other brushes/sponges that I can’t be without! So, I’m just going to share them with you.
- The Original Beauty Blender. Do I even need to introduce this little miracle sponge? Sometimes, it’s the only thing I use to apply my base make-up, blusher and highlight. It’s so versatile and I am fully convinced there is no other sponge on this planet that can compare. If you haven’t got one, you need one!
- EcoTools ‘Mattifying Finish’ Brush. I use this brush for blusher application. I like that the brush isn’t round, it’s a bit ‘squashed’ so the hairs fan out a bit which make it perfect for applying just the right amount of blush on the apples of my cheeks.
- Real Techniques Bold Metals Brush 100. This brush is perfect for a light dusting of setting powder all over the face, I also really like to use it for applying powder highlight to the tops of my cheekbones and sides of my forehead. I love it because it’s so gentle and applies the product very evenly.
- Real Techniques Bold Metals Brush 300. The most perfect brush I have found for setting my under eyes. The size of the brush and the domed shape ensures that it fits into the eye contours perfectly.
- Stila 24A Brush. I don’t actually know if this brush is even around anymore. I got it as part of a Christmas set many years ago. I’ve been using it for a bronzing/blusher/contour brush. It’s so soft and picks up just the right amount of product. I haven’t really found anything similar to replace it yet, I guess I’ll just wait and see how long it lasts!
Those were my essential make-up tools for my face. I don’t always use all of them though because I don’t tend to use setting powders etc. on a daily basis. Do you have a make-up tool you can’t live without? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to know! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading! Also, follow me over on Instagram.
Love, Taslima x
