Women are particular about their makeup brushes. I am. How we use them really comes down to personal style. Some women want their brush collection pared down to the core four or five essentials; others like owning an entire palette of them, delighting in the nuances of application. But I think there is no right or wrong way of using them. I have bought one real brush from, again, Clinique. It cost quite a bit, I know… being 100RM just for one foundation brush. But I know it’s worth buying it and I can use it for years. And besides, it is soooo gentle. When I use it, it feels like a light feather is caressing my skin.
When you apply your make up with a good brush, it feels wonderful. You’re an artist and we your face is your personal canvas. Applying makeup is a uniquely sensual experience, in which you really get to pamper yourself. A good brush is a precious, handmade instrument. Merely holding one makes you feel creative and glamorous.
