Who doesn’t want their makeup to look flawless and smooth? Based on your skin type achieving a smooth makeup application will be easier for some more than others. Having great skin is always the best base to work with, but let’s be real; we all have imperfections and moments where that isn’t the case.
We want to let you in on a little secret, just because a makeup product is pricey doesn’t mean it’s the best. Many drugstore brands have cult products as do some of your favorite luxury brands. For years we’ve been told that to achieve the perfect makeup look it’s only about the makeup. In reality, it’s the perfect combination of the right makeup and the correct makeup brushes.
So, before you start working on perfecting the latest makeup trend, make sure you have the correct makeup brushes in hand.
What are the benefits of makeup brushes? Why invest in them? We’ve highlighted some of the reasons for having the perfect makeup brushes that can make up a world of difference.
When it comes to makeup brushes, they can help you apply any product to your face evenly. A good makeup brush will allow you to use multiple products across your face, layering and blending evenly. No one wants mismatched eyeshadow or blotchy foundation!
The advantage of makeup brushes can be notably seen when you apply BB cream or foundation to your face. While some prefer sponges, makeup brushes will offer full coverage. Youtube beauty celebrities like Nabela Noor use a combination of makeup brushes and sponges to help cover blemishes and uneven skin tone entirely.
Makeup brushes help in controlling the level of coverage that you want. If you prefer a full glam face, you’ll be able to layer the products accordingly. Or if you prefer a more natural look, you can opt to apply the products thinly and not too much. For eyeshadows, makeup brushes allow you to perfectly contour, blend and smooth gradually building up colors to get the eye makeup look you’re creating.
As opposed to sponges, makeup brushes last longer with proper maintenance and care. Typically, sponges are easily torn from continuous use. If you clean your brushes regularly and take care of them, they will last for years. Invest in those that have high quality, and you will not regret it. It is a more cost-effective solution.
While makeup brushes are must-haves, lots of makeup brands are trying to make life easier for you, by including makeup brushes or the perfect built-in applicators in their products. Including us, at Shade M Beauty. We’ve perfected our Muse Matte Liquid Lipstick applicator to guarantee the perfect application every time. Our products have a pointed tip that allows for a flawless liquid line, and the small hole on the base gives just the right product to your lip as you glide it across effortlessly. What we love most is that you can also comfortably layer shades creating an ombre look or spicing up with a metallic look by layering any of our matte shades with Xcentric to illuminate your lips.
