Lets FACE it

I attended a makeup class over the weekend that focused on foundation and application. It was very interesting and informative and the class reinforced some of the things that I already knew, like skincare is essential.  No matter how much makeup you put on or how good you are at it, if your skin is not healthy it is all in vain. One of my biggest takeaways was that there really is such a thing as a "good" makeup brush.

I typically do not use a brush to apply my foundation, I feel like my fingers are the best tool and I use less product. At one point I used a brush and I felt like my application was streaky and I ended up using twice the amount of foundation trying to get it smooth and blended. Well… breaking news… I was using a "bad" brush.

Now let me be honest and say that I thought when people bought expensive brushes they were just paying for the name, no added value. Now let me admit that I was wrong! During my tutorial I was shown a "good" brush and it makes all the difference in the world! Who knew? Well maybe you guys did, but I didn't so I can't possibly be the only one.

I will still be using my fingers to apply BB creams and tinted moisturizers but for medium or full coverage kinda nights, this girl will be bringing out the brush… the "good" one! Let's face it, somethings are worth investing in… our face is one of them!

The "GOOD" brush


  1. Haha I need this 'good' brush. And do u use this good brush for the dior foundation? Powder or cream? Help tiph, help.

  2. You can use this brush for all of the above. I have used it with liquid and cream… even the airbrush foundation. I would not recommend using it for powder. Powder brushes should be fluffy so that the powder dusts on evenly.
