Tools Of Choice

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.




  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
