Let’s talk MAKEUP BRUSHES BABY!

Move your tools!

Have you got a favorite brand of makeup brushes?

I have M.A.C, The Body Shop and one stunning set I bought at the Beauty expo by  Creative Glamour.  My sister recently bought me 2 brushes from Palladio (The Makeup Geek uses them) AND a stunning brush from SEPHORA.   My fabulous better half got me a gift voucher from INGLOT.  I’ll definitely try out a brush or two from them. (Cannot wait, thanks babsie)

But the one set I REALLY want is Billy B’s.  Oh I’m sure you’re rolling your eyes thinking, “What is it with Sandy and Billy B?”.  Hey!  Leave me B!  He IS the bestest best of the best!

He would use makeup brushes and anyway cut the bristles according to the way he wanted them.   Guess he figured having brushes specially made for him would be easier at the end of the day.   Makeup artists who have used them only seem to rave about them.

Here are a few of the most talked about makeup brush brands out there…

M.A.C

SONIA KASHUK

BOBBI BROWN

SEPHORA (I have the pink one! hehe)

THE BODY SHOP

ESSENCE OF BEAUTY

POSH

MALLY

ELF

and of course (drumroll)

BILLY B BEAUTY

BTW, which method of foundation application do you use?

Fingers?  (On yourself only I hope)

Foundation brush (Fi’s blog post shocked me once, when people told her they didn’t know what it was.  I use mine daily!)

Stipple brush? 

Sponge? 

A new tool used by some makeup artists is the Kabuki brush.  Initially used as a powder brush, Mario Dedivanovic used it on Kim’s face as a foundation brush.  He says it brings on a whole new flawless effect.  Give it a try and tell me if you agree with him.

So which brand do you use?  Are you happy with it?  I’m happy with what I have, but the collection keeps growing!

Just remember, if you use a makeup sponge, wet it beforehand.  You can wash certain sponges and reuse them, but if you’re going to work on a client, ALWAYS use a new sponge.

Wash your brushes.  Personally I use shampoo!  Shampoo is made to remove grease build-up from your hair.  You must see how it cleans the brushes.  Afterwards I’ll rewash it with Savlon soap.  Any disinfectant soap will do!
