There’s one for every facial feature, and for both general and precision jobs. These are the ultimate makeup tool invented so you don’t have to use your fingers, and they’re available from pinpoint to pencil-thin and oval toothbrush type. One to definitely get your paws on is NYX Professional Makeup Pro Brush Collection Blending Brush.
A particularly bad habit is to use your fingers to blend product over the skin. You don’t have to with this type of ingenious makeup tool. Use when blending a drop foundation or products with wand applicators such as liquid eyeshadows and highlighters. An excellent option to add to your toolkit is the NYX Professional Makeup Complete Control Blending Sponge.
They do everything from removing excess makeup and fixing mistakes, so keep your fingers to yourself. Some sponges, like cushion compacts, double as an applicator and blender.
Just like the cotton sponges, cotton buds are useful for correcting small mistakes on precision areas. If you’ve smudged colour under your eyes, or your eyeshadow is in the wrong place, use this nifty tool to correct your makeup.
How many times have you used your knuckles to lift your eyelashes? Yes, we’ve all been there, but utilising an eyelash curler prevents dirt transferring from your fingers to your sensitive eye area.
When applying makeup, most people are guilty of using their fingers around the eyes. Don’t do it! These mini eye brush kits contain precision utensils – such as stencils, eyeliner brushes and tweezers – to apply makeup around the eyes and brows so you don’t have to resort to your fingertips.
Empty palette pans
It’s common practise to use the back of your hand to mix foundation with primer or other products. If you’re an aspiring makeup mixologist you can use these pans to customize your makeup and leave your hands out of the equation.
There’s no longer an excuse to use your digits and risk contaminating both your skin and makeup. It’s worth investing in these long-lasting and easy-to-maintain beauty tools that allow for cleaner makeup application.
