Makeup Tip of the Week
Tools and products are just as important as your makeup skills. If you use mediocre brushes, mediocre products and have average makeup skills, for example, by just improving the quality of your brushes and using richer pigmented products, the application would immediately improve, without even changing your technique.
If you really want to apply your makeup like a pro – do what the professionals do and use the correct, quality brushes for application.
Once you have the tools, you need to hold them correctly, as where you hold a brush on the handle affects your control. The closer your fingers are to the ferrule (the silver section beneath the brush head), the more pressure you put on the brush head and vice versa. In general, if you want to apply color evenly, place your fingers on the center of the brush handle.
Another tip: You can easily turn a fluffy brush into a flat, angled brush by wrapping your hand around the bristles and flattening them.
