One of the most important things behind make-up artistry is using the right tools, and for many women, they’re not quite sure where to start. The majority have grown up using triangle wedges, eye applicators, powder puffs, and even their fingers to apply makeup.
Read on to get clued up on the different types of brushes and get entering to win one of two sets of make-up tool kits to help you unleash your inner pro!
Real Techniques Spotlight Essentials Set
Sam and Nic Chapman, launched their first batch of original brushes in 2011. Unbelievable brush quality (cruelty-free) was paired with professional, interesting and fun education from beauty gurus, Sam and Nic. The mission was to offer high-tech brushes and makeup tutorials that make you the expert.
Watch as Nic from Pixiwoo re-creates a bold look perfect for any occasion, using the amazing Spotlight Essentials Set. This makeup brush set includes the 102 Triangle Concealer, the 300 Tapered Blush, and the 203 Tapered Shadow.
Prep the face using a damp Miracle Complexion Sponge to pop on some foundation to the face, blending and moving the product perfectly for an effortless finish. Apply the lighter concealer using the flat side of the 102 Triangle Concealer for a clean swipe under the eye and dust over any blemishes using the heavier concealer.
Powder the foundation into place with the 300 Tapered Blush, as it fits perfectly into all areas of the face – around the nose, down the centre of the face, and along the T-Zone. Use the 300 Tapered Blush brush again to sweep on blusher and highlighter. Apply eyeshadow using the 203 Tapered Shadow with the same colour as the blusher to work through the socket adding depth to the eye. Add a touch of mascara, and move on to the lip. Without using a lip liner, apply the bold red onto the lip using the Smudge Brush for a sharp, sexy finish.
