Bobbi Brown Tips11:10 AM
As promised I will be sharing tips with you from the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual that I own. I have finished reading the book, but I am now going back and reviewing the things I didn't know and sharing those things with you.
The brushes that come with most makeup compacts are too small and narrow for proper blush application. Toss them and use a brush designed specifically for that purpose.
Natural bristles (such as squirrel, goat, pony, or sable) are very soft and offer a more blended, natural application. They're best for working with powder-based products-blush, powder, and eye shadows.
Synthetic bristles are the best choice for brushes that will be used with creamy products, such as concealer, gel liners, and lip colors. They are generally stiffer than natural hair, so they give you greater control and a more precise application.
I included this tip because I found it to be really helpful. I've just started paying attention to the brushes that I'm using and I honestly didn't know that you should use natural brushes for somethings and synthetic for others. I must be honest in saying that I don't think I'm comfortable with knowing that Mr. Ed's tail is helping me get a smokey eye though..lol
This is a thicker and fuller than a blush brush and has a flat profile. It is designed for sweeping and pressing bronzer over cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin to provide a natural-looking warmth to the skin.
What?!?! I had no clue there was such a thing as a bronzer brush?!?! I wonder if you really need this though..I've been using a regular blush brush and I like the results I get.
That's all for now!! What section would you like to know more about from this book?
