Obviously you’ve spent a lot of time and money creating your makeup collection. You have the products you love, and they make you feel like you look your best. Unfortunately you might be overlooking one of the most important elements in your collection! Believe it or not, quality brushes are essential for providing a flawless look. Spending a bunch of money on high quality makeup will not do much good if the proper tools are not used to apply it.
There are many benefits to using brushes instead of your fingers to apply makeup. You’ll get much more even coverage using a brush, and a more polished finish. Your makeup stays on longer, it’s blended well, and the brushes just feel so nice against your skin. It’s also more sanitary to use a brush, and it’s especially important for acne-prone skin, as it helps prevent breakouts. Plus, using soft brushes instead of rubbing skin with fingers reduces signs of aging.
Many people will be surprised to know that even though makeup is a billion dollar industry worldwide, most ladies don’t have a clue how to find the perfect brush. It’s always a good idea to invest in a great brush, even if it may seem costly. Many studies suggest that investing in a great brush will save a person money in the long run, because a high quality brush can be utilized for years.
So how can you tell if you are buying quality brushes? For the most part, I personally prefer synthetic bristles since they prevent the brush from soaking up too much foundation and getting gunky. This also saves you money over time since you’ll use less makeup. It’s always a plus if they are anti-bacterial, have wooden handles, and are handmade with soft bristles. Easy to grip handles also cause makeup application to be effortless and effective.
Very important – remember to wash your brushes frequently! This will remove dirt and buildup accumulated in the bristles. Brushes should be washed with brush soap and warm water so they are not only washed, but conditioned and sanitized too. This is something that baby shampoo and dish soap won’t do for you. Lack of proper cleaning reduces the longevity of the brushes and causes you to lose bristles.
If you are looking for high quality brushes that won’t break the bank, I sell brushes that are handmade, vegan, synthetic & mixed (depending on use), anti-bacterial, and extremely soft. Whether you are looking for a basic set, deluxe set, or just a few individual brushes to add to your collection, I have it all. Also choose from pink bamboo handles or black wooden handles for your set.
