I never knew how important makeup brushes were until I got brushes from Beautycounter. I actually waited the longest time to get these because I already had my brushes from Target. 😉 Similar to assuming personal care products and cosmetics on the shelves at a store are regulated so they HAVE TO be safe for us (SO SO WRONG), I assumed all brushes are all the same (SO SO WRONG). I’m telling you…With these brushes, the perfect amount gets on the brush and then the perfect amount goes onto your cheeks. Oh my goodness, these brushes are SO soft too. With these brushes, there’s NO “awww…crap, I put way too much on” coming out of my mouth. The struggle was real! My clients who’ve purchased these Beautycounter brushes say they’re hands down the best. My friend, Julie, confessed “True story, I’ve spent a lot of money on other brushes, these are by far the best!” I had another client love the brush collection so much, she bought one for her daughter-in-law! Goodness, where was this all our lives?!
Now, I’ve had people adding the brushes to their wishlist which is so exciting!! I quickly took a photo of which brushes I use for which products.
1- Retractable Complexion Brush: pea size of Tint Skin Foundation (my shade is Golden) on the palm of your hand. Swirl with brush and then apply foundation on face. It will go on way smoother and more evenly than using your hand or a sponge.
2- Flat Complexion Brush: to apply a little bit of foundation to areas where I want more coverage like my cheeks (love how our tint skin foundation is buildable for times when you want to look ‘flawless’). To be honest, I only do this when I’m going out on the town like a girls night or date night.
3- All Over Eye Brush: to apply eye shadow duos (Peach/Bronze for this one, but I also love using the Fawn/Night).
4- Crease Brush: I applied Concealer Pen (I use “Medium 1” for under my eyes) under eyes ‘drawing’ an upside down triangle. Not sure if this is the right thing to do, but I then used the crease brush to blend. Works great and I don’t have to get my fingers dirty!
5- Powder Blush Brush: to apply Mattify Skin Finishing Powder on top of foundation to set makeup and for a matte finish
6- Angled Blush Brush: to apply Matte Bronzer (my shade is No. 2) for definition/contouring. Drawing an imaginary “3”…From hairline curving to end of eye curving to cheek area. Let me know if this doesn’t make sense.
7- Powder Blush Brush: to apply Color Sweep Blush Duo (Flamingo/Apricot is perfect for my skin tone but Tawny/Whisper and Bloom/Tulip are very popular). Flamingo next to bronzer and Apricot on apples of my cheek.
You can grab these brushes individually, but I highly suggest taking advantage of the brush collections to save you money!! Who doesn’t love saving money?!
