While I’m far from a makeup pro, I do have the knowledge I’ve gained as a 10-plus year user of makeup. I remember buying my first foundation in college, right around the time that Ulta and Sephora were becoming a big deal. I chose a powder foundation from Benefit, and felt like a real adult putting it on each day. I had worn mascara and eyeshadow (and lots of body glitter) in high school, but the Benefit foundation was the first time I had a real “makeup routine.”
Either the Expert Face brush mentioned above, or the Buffing brush. The Expert Face gives a bit more of a full-coverage appearance, while the Buffing brush gives a lighter, sheerer finish. Which brush I use depends on which look I’m going for!
I use powder all over my face, not just in small areas, so I go for a big brush with lots of coverage – the Powder brush.
I use the aptly-named Blush brush. I really like the angle on this brush – it helps you follow the natural shape of your cheekbone, without getting too clown-like with your blush.
