Spring '08 - Beauty Tools

Everyone knows the itty bitty brushes that come with our favorite cosmetics are usually meant for the trash can. If you’re putting your eye shadow on with a sponge tip applicator, you better only be using one shade. Get yourself some real brushes girl! Consider it an investment. With proper care they can last forever. Beauty editor Mickey Williams found some favorite mini-sets that won’t break the bank.

Mickey says: “Super squishy sponge intended for a flawless makeup application. We tested the pink porous sponge and found the biggest benefit of the sponge was its egg shape. The soft-touch, pointed end made blending concealer with foundation seamless.”

Beautyblender’s patent-pending elliptical shape makes application foolproof by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with stunning ease. Its suede texture is sensual to the touch and its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your make up dazzling and undetectable. Beautyblender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free.

Recommendation

If you buy just one item that will make you look fabulous and does what it promises it is this amazing and adorable little pink egg! Your foundation will never look the same again. You simply dampen this little beauty, squeeze out the excess water (I recommend blotting it in a towel) and then dip into your foundation and stipple it on. You will get a flawless, and I do mean flawless finish. The awesome thing is you can also use for blushes, highlighters and powder foundation. The uses are endless.

I had heard many raves for this over the past year. I finally caved and bought one and I can tell you I will never be without this. I have, and still love and adore my Tricia Sawyer foundation brush (the best foundation brush on the market) and my MAC 187 brush (aka) the skunk brush. I like the MAC 187 more for powers (although it can be used for foundation too). This beauteous little egg now makes up my troika of flawless face tools!

If you don’t use the correct tools even the most expensive of foundation will not look as good as it can. If you are looking for something that will give you a flawless face, and are looking for a new foundation, I challenge you that you need a different tool instead. Pick up one of these babies and flawless skin will be yours!!
