I think I’ve mentioned this before, but if you have makeup and you want to use it to its best advantage, then you’ve gotta have the right tools.
Sure, you can buy Bare Escentuals foundation, but if you don’t have one of the kabuki brushes, then forget about it.
Want to do a smokey eye? Well, then you will need a large shadow brush and a crease brush at the very minimum.
How about using eye shadow as an eyeliner? Helps a lot if you have an angled brush to apply it with.
I know that my personal go-to beauty tools are my regular kabuki brush, my large domed brush, my large shadow brush and crease brush, my large angled contour brush, and my eyelash curler and my eyelash separator.
No wonder people who don’t use a lot of makeup find it intimidating.
And I don’t even consider myself to be someone who has a lot of tools and brushes.
What I do find is that it’s worth it to pay a bit for your tools, but you don’t have to go top of the line to get something decent that will last and not shed on your face every time you use it.
How about you? What are your indispensable tools?
