Makeup Routine | Makeup Brushes and Beauty Blenders

Wednesday, 4 April 2018

Whether you're using brushes, sponges, puffs even your own fingers to apply your makeup, it's entirely up to you. It all boils down to how you want to express your own makeup style and your choice of finishings. My ideal finish for makeup bases is airbrush look but I can't afford that so I'm using makeup brushes and sponges to apply my primers and foundations. In today's post, I'll be talking about makeup brushes that I have in my makeup stash.





First off, FENTY BEAUTY makeup brushes! My new toys! I've been collecting the items slowly since the brand was first launched and at this point, I have the foundation brush, highlighter brush, mini touch up brush and the sponge. I honestly haven't use any of these yet (except while I'm at SEPHORA as I was testing them) and indeed I am excited! Of course, I had to get the makeup items to use these brushes for so stay tuned for that!




ZOEVA eye makeup brushes. I just got my essentials for eyeshadows and brow products. As you can see, I do love them especially the Luxe Crease brush as it blends my transition shades so beautifully. Definitely will  be continuing to grow my collection from this brand.





Etude House makeup brushes. I also got other brushes from Korean brands but I love these the most. Each of the brush is soft, does the job and pretty! I especially love the Powder and Cheek Brush because these respectively apply my powder and blush so nicely as they pick up the appropriate amount of product.





Real Techniques makeup brushes are among the first brush collection I got myself into about 4 years ago. I still use them, I still love them! The bristles are soft as they apply my makeup beautifully. I use the foundation and concealer brushes from this collection the most as they blend my foundation nice and even; not that other brushes that I have don't but maybe I'm just loving these a little bit more compared.





Last but not least, the original Beauty Blender. Lots of other brands came out with their own version but to me, only Real Techniques version comes to a close. On days that I want a simple application for foundation, I go for the Beauty Blender to get my airbrush finish. It's best to use this damped prior application as to let it bounce the base makeup evenly on facial area. I had yet to try the sponge from Fenty Beauty yet and again, I'm excited to!





As I'm moving places soon, I decided to place all these brushes and sponges in my SEPHORA Train case for easy access to them and to avoid them getting dusts from all the cleaning and packing I'm doing.


I guess that's all from me! I'll see you guys on my next post! Annyeong~
