Size matters: beauty tools

I thank my lucky starts that Dean & Davis Factor.decided to combine their skills and in 1996 to create Smashbox Cosmetics.  Photo fabulous makeup!

The Smashbox brothers don’t just create fabulous makeup.  Smashbox has its own fabulous collection of tools to make cosmetic application a breeze for photo shoot worthy results at home.

Yes, size matters.  Makeup brushes come in a variety of shapes and sizes, each with its own perfected plan for usage.  It is important to have the right tools for the job.  An electrician wouldn’t use a metal handsaw to cut live wires.  Just as you shouldn’t use your blush brush to apply your eyeshadow.  Both would have equally shocking results!

My favorite specialized tools are an eyeliner applicator and an angled brow brush.  The brow brush hairs are cut at an angle for precise application.  I use the Smashbox eyeshadow for my brow color.  Two birds with less dollars.  It takes a bit of practice to perfect the desired shape for your brow, so start light and fill in darker as needed.

The eyeliner applicator is my second favorite tool.  Applying eyeliner is easy if you have a tool to smudge and smooth as needed.  If you do a fine line of liner for day, you can later go over top with a lighter line and smudge a bit for a more dramatic night-time look.

Practice (with the right tools) makes perfect!
