5 Must Have Make Up Brushes

It’s one thing loading up on make up products, concealer and the likes, but stocking up on good brushes is what completes a good make up kit. Here are 5 brushes you must add to your kitty.

 

  1. Foundation Brush

Applying foundation using your fingers is okay, but what you don’t realize is that in the process, your face is also being exposed to the natural oils of your fingers. This may eventually lead to an oily and blotched face. Hence, foundation brush.foundation brush

 

  1. Powder Brush

Follow up your foundation with some set in powder using a big powder brush for maximum coverage and effect.powder brush

 

  1. Eyeliner Brush

This one’s a must if you are into high-end gel liners. The short and sturdy bristles give you an excellent grip and the ability to maneuver you liner in whichever way that you like.eyeliner brush

 

  1. All Over Eye Shadow Brush

Again, you finger can do the trick, but it is always better to use a brush because you can never get the same effect, angle or stroke with your fingers.eye shadow brush

 

  1. Blush Brush

Do we even need to explain why this one is essential? Your cheeks need and deserve a brush dedicated just to make them look peachier!blush brush

The Ultimate Lipstick Guide For All Lip Types

Recently, celebrity YouTuber Lilly Singh a.k.a. Superwoman launched her liquid lipcolor shade called ‘Bawse’ in collaboration with Smashbox. And I won’t be lying if I say, “I’m a unicorn”. But here’s the thing, Lilly’s red looks smashing on her and on me it’s straight up odd. Why? Because I possess surrealistic blade-thin lips!Smashbox

Enter, the lipstick guide. What I mean is that if a red doesn’t look good on you, a russet might. And if a russet doesn’t, beige might. Follow this guide to pick out the shade that goes best with your pout.

 

  1. Thin Lips

Most people with thin lips may already know this, but for those who don’t, dark colors shouldn’t really be your pick. Go for lighter and more natural shades of pink, beige and nudes. Start by lining your lip and then fill it in for a gorgeous and fuller look.thin lips

Suggested: Bobbi Brown Art Stick (Brown Berry, Rose Brown, Rich Nude); Christian Louboutin Safki Lip Definer; Anastasia Beverly Hills Nude Awakeningbobbi brown

 

  1. Full Lips

Read, perfection. Sorry ladies, but I am totally J. Simply because while you discuss the latest crimson shade by YSL and Louboutin, I am here retouching my clear gloss. But no hard feeling y’all! Oh and, as if it’s news but you chicas can carry off pretty much every color but leave the nudes for the rest. Pretty please?scarlet johannsen

  1. Top Heavy Lips

You, woman, are the reason the ‘pout’ came into existence. You make the ‘duck face’ look effortless to the extent of seeming legit. And although, your pout is perfection, it’s okay to want to turn down the fullness at times. All you need is a darker and a slightly lighter shade of the same color. Fill in the fuller half with the darker shade and the lighter shade on your lower lip. Or you could just use a dark tone throughout and still look like a million bucks!Moroccanoil  "Inspired By Women" Campaign Celebration

Suggested: YSL Rouge Pur Couture Kiss & Love Collection (Fuchsia); Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet (La Diva); MAC Mattene LipstickYSL Pink

 

  1. Bottom Heavy Lips

One word, ombré. You can totally rock that trick on your fuller half. Simply fill in your lips with the desired shade and dab some white make up pencil or nude eye shadow on to the center of your lower lip. Blend lightly for a magically balanced and gorgeous look. Or, as mentioned earlier, go for a single dark shade and rock it. Ombré is cooler though. Just saying.1lily-collins-ombre-lip

Suggested: Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick (Noir Revelateur); Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayonbite beauty

 

  1. Large Lips

Although totally kissable and unbelievably attractively, large lips can at time overshadow other facial features. Turn down your lip volume by wearing a soft matte color on the lip and highlight prominent features of your face – eyes, brows, and cheekbones, et al.kim-kardashian-01-600x800

Suggested: MAC Lipstick Halsey; NARS Audacious Lipstick (Vanessa, Juliette, Brigitte)Screen Shot 2016-05-16 at 2.49.13 AM

 

  1. Small Lips

Adorable as they are, small lips sometimes deserve due attention. Bestow them with some spotlight by picking up lip colors that have some shimmer, shine or gloss. These not only highlight your lips but also add a good amount of fullness.small lips

Suggested: MAC Lipglass Viva Glam Ariana Grande; Dior Addict Milky Tint; Chanel Rouge Allure (Pimpante)dior gloss

 

Important as it is to know your lip shape well and shades that suit you, it is also a good idea to practice some of these tricks before taking ‘em out for a spin.
