Why should I use cosmetic brushes?
Most people overlook the importance of using application tools,
like brushes, when they apply their make-up. The most important
reason is performance. How would you feel if you went to have
your make-up done by a professional and they applied your
make-up with their fingers? You would not pay for it would you.
The same idea applies to you at home. By using a brush that is
made for the particular process you are performing (i.e.
applying eye shadow with an eye shadow brush) it will only make
the application process easier. Applying your blush is another
good example. It is very hard to make both of your cheeks look
even when you use your fingers as application tools. For those
of you that have trouble keeping your make-up on throughout the
day, like your eyeliner, use a firm bristle brush and a flat eye
shadow instead of a pencil. The shadow will stay on better, and
give you a more natural looking line that will not make your
eyes appear smaller.
The next important reason for using brushes is so you do not
contaminate your cosmetics. There are a lot of things that you
touch which can be transmitted to your cosmetics if you use your
fingers. This can cause a problem for people with sensitive skin
or eyes. If a problem does occur you end up having to throw away
the product, which is money wasted. You may even have to go to
work without make-up for a few days to let your eyes or skin
When you decide to purchase your brushes, make sure they are a
good quality brush. We have customers that have used the same
set of our brushes for over ten years. This will end up saving
you money in the long run. If you had to buy a $5.00 contour
brush every year because it falls apart, in ten years you have
spent $50.00. Our contour brush would only cost you $14.97 for
the same amount of use. Another way brushes will save you money
is you will not waste so much of your cosmetics. Since the brush
is only used to apply cosmetics there is no need to wipe the
excess off every time you use it. You only need to clean them
once every two weeks.
As you can see by the examples I have given brushes can only
make your life easier. Not only will your make-up come out
better, you will save money too. Remember an artist needs their
tools and so do you.
