In a perfect world, we’d all be able to afford a makeup artist to come to our home and make us look flawless every day – but unfortunately, this isn’t a perfect world. Learning to apply your own makeup to give you the best face possible is a big part of growing up, and everyone loves insider tips and tricks on how to get the perfect look.
There are many things that can make the difference in makeup application – the quality of products, matching your skin tone and complexion to the shades you use, enhancing your best assets – but few things are as important as the tools you work with. Using the correct makeup brushes for the correct products can be the finishing touch you need when it comes to creating a flawless finish; after all, the products you buy can only be as good as the tools you apply them with.
Most makeup products and cosmetics come with their own applicators, such as small pads in eyeshadows or sponge materials with face powder. However, these applicators are less than ideal for applying makeup due to their small size (they are usually sized so they fit within the palette) and poor quality creation.
Investing in a separate set of makeup brushes will make a huge difference to the overall appearance of makeup you wear. You can find full sets of face and eye brushes for as little as $10, or up to $50 for a deluxe kit. Give them a go, and see the difference they make for yourself.
