This is A Blonde Ambition. And I have no plans to start doing drywall tutorials any time soon.
This week has inadvertently become beauty week, I suppose. But hey, who doesn't love to talk about make-up and skincare and amazing mascara, right?
Today, I wanted to show you the tools that I really use. I don't have a ton of brushes or applicators for my make-up. In fact, I own only three brushes and an eyelash curler. (And a cool sponge thingy for foundation blending.) I find that if I invest a little more into a good brush, it's worth the price of ten crappy ones. Below, you'll find exactly the tools I use.
Beautyblender Sponge // Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Brush // Sephora Pro Angled Contour Brush // Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow Brush //
Shiseido Eyelash Curler // Orla Kiely Garden Double Zip Train Case // Arched Multi Purpose Cosmetic Organizer Caddy in Lucite
1) Coffee filters | These puppies work great as an alternative to those oil-blotting papers you find in the make-up aisle. And for about a buck, you can get 150.
2) Cheapie toothbrushes | Those free toothbrushes you get at the dentist? Don't toss 'em just yet. They make the perfect little brushes for combing unruly brows into place and de-clumping mascara for flawless eye fringe.
3) Q-tips | Use these instead of those foam smudge tools to soften eyeliner and apply eye brightener to the tear ducts.
I'm curious, if you could only keep ONE make-up brush or applicator, which one would it be? Tell me below in the comments; I want to know the type and the brand! Who knows? Maybe one of you will turn me on to my next favorite.
