Listen, I am a fancy girl on a budget. I don’t have unlimited money nor storage to buy a ton of makeup just because. If I need to buy high end, I buy high end. If I can get the same quality for less at the drugstore, then I’ll pick up some eyeshadow along with my NyQuil, ya dig?
When I was learning how to apply makeup, There were so many damn brushes, sponges, and products recommended that it took me quite a while to get my collection together for my full face application. I’ve recently filmed my Ultimate Highlight and Contour Routine for you all. Check out the tutorial on my IGTV!
For those of you that are new to makeup, below is my arsenal of go-to brushes!
Beauty Blender, $20
MAC Stippling Brush, $42
Morphe Kabuki Brush: I’m having trouble finding this brush for sale online! I’ve e-mailed Morphe to see if it’s a stock issue or if the brush has been outright discontinued. I’ll keep you posted! In the meantime, here’s an affordable dupe.
To keep your brushes clean, I highly recommend this brush cleaning mat. I can cleanse all of my brushes in a matter of minutes! Not only does it cut down my wash time, it leaves my brushes truly clean–all the way through!
I am SO sorry that this video is so long. I wanted to make sure I explained in full detail the application process… but I think I got a little carried away. Nevertheless, if you got through it, what did you think?! Drop me a line below–I love your feedback!
I started posting more things. Are we friends on Instagram?
