Brushes you Need and How to use them

Hey friends, I want to show you what brushes you need, why you need them and how to use them

First is the foundation brush

Why you need it: your foundation will go on a lot smoother and will look more like your own skin vs. looking streaky and uneven if applied with finger tips (not to mention that applying foundation without first washing your hands is gross)

How to use it: there are tons of different foundation brushes out there but your main goal is to buff the foundations on your skin to make it look as natural as possible (still covering imperfections but not cakie looking)

Second is eye primer brush

Why you need it: it applies your eye primer evenly and buffs it into the skin instead of plastering the product on your eyelid with your fingertip

How you use it: buff the product onto your eyelids all the way to where your eyebrow starts

Third is a flat rounded eyeshadow brush

Why you need it: this brush is a wonderful tool to help you DEPOSIT more product onto your eyelid. The more product, the more vibrant your eyeshadow will look

How to use it: Rub onto eyeshadow and then onto your eyelid. Simple as that. no need to buff

Fourth brush is a blending brush

Why you need it: this brush will save your life. It allows you to buff in all those pretty colors you just applied on your eyelids. It makes everything come together. There is nothing like it. You NEED it

How to use it: gently buff any harsh edges around your eyelid and blend in darker colors to the outer corner of your eyelids

These are 4 of the most essential brushes that you need to own. Hope this post was helpful to your makeup routine.

Wondering what you want for mothers day, or your birthday or the holidays? This is what you want!

I am back

Hello again my friends, No, I'm not dead. Just decided to take a little time off to focus on work and family. March has been a busy month for me. From wedding makeup to editorial work to a little baby boy teething. This month has been so rewarding.

Here is a little tutorial on how to do makeup for a photoshoot or editorial work. This will help you know how to do makeup so that it looks vibrant and beautiful on paper.

Well, enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.
