Brush up on make-up must-haves

Brush up on make-up must-haves



This should really be in every make-up set. The beautyblender beats the ordinary flat foundation sponge.

The best thing about this egg-shaped sponge is the tip. It allows you to apply foundation at the inner corners of your eye without getting foundation on your lashes or on your eye shadow primer.

Dip your beautyblender in water and you will notice the foundation goes on smoother. It also gives your face a moisturised look.

It also helps to reach the sides of the nose without piling on more foundation.

Available at all Sephora stores.



This double-ended brush is pure genius.

On one end, it is equipped to help with eye shadow application or it can be used as a concealer brush.

The delicate bristles make it easy to sweep either the concealer or the eye shadow onto your face.

On the other end, you have an angled brush for lining your eyes, so it doesn't matter if you're using a wet or dry eyeliner.

But make sure you clean the brush frequently as it has a tendency to retain bits of make-up between the bristles.

Available at all Sephora stores.



Need a brush that will help with both applying and blending beauty products?

This multi-purpose brush is probably just the thing you need.

Manufacturers claim it caters to those looking to apply and blend liquid, cream and powder products.

I feel it works best with liquid and cream products. The angled FACEit Circle Face Brush is good for contouring the nose and cheek area, giving your face a sharper look.

The best way to do this is to use the pointy tip to brush along your nose and it works quite effectively.

Available at all The Face Shop stores.
