A LITTLE ALLITERATION ;)
I have been plodding along for years; changing products but always maintaining the way I apply my cream – whether it is a tinted moisturiser or a more opaque foundation for the evening. I have watched a million make-up gurus and influencers work all their tricks of the trade but in most cases, they don’t translate for me. My days of flawless were a distant memory or at least I thought so.
Here is what changed.
As I scrolled through Insta on repeat I kept seeing familiar influencer faces talking about a particular kind of make-up brush. I became bored with it like you do when the repeats become repeats of the repeats until I started noticing how their skin looked. Flawless.
Backtrack a little.
My skin whether with a tinted moisturiser or a foundation wasn’t looking how I wanted. The finish was patchy and nowhere near “flawless”. I tried quite a few different make-up brushes that were recommended by people I trust but still no joy; an expensive exercise and application with my fingertips was still a better result.
I didn’t want to spend more and more on application brushes only to be disappointed. Weeks passed and still, my make-up wasn’t looking as good as it should – I’m solid with my skincare routine and follow my own advice on the whole which means it usually looks presentable enough.
Operator error must be the “why”.
What finally had me over the line was the concealer brush.
Concealer really can look dodgy – it can appear caked on and do more to highlight problem areas than diminish them. There is an art to applying these products and when they work they do make a noticeable difference.
I bought one brush to start.
I don’t quite know what the deal is but the result is miraculous and since I have been applying my tinted moisturiser and foundation with them, the compliments have been coming. Nothing else has changed.
Ruthlessly I check the finish in the magnifying mirror and it is good. Seriously smooth, doesn’t clog in the lines or become patchy around the nose area and the jawline is blended perfectly. I am delighted and don’t know why I didn’t use these before.
I’m all about natural when it comes to make-up and haircare but I realise I need to be more open and try “other” ways because these brushes have made so much difference to my skin finish.
Did I mention I use less product and the blending in is super easy?
Face done in seconds and no fear of walking outside and looking like a patchwork quilt. No complaints here, they are really remarkable. xv
