12 DAYS OF ONDIA J GIVE-O-WAY: DAY 10
What's an artist without her tools? A strugglin one! I only wear makeup when I know I'll be seen and even then i'm not trying to spend a whole lot of time doing it. I have mastered the 10 minute beat. Brows, foundation, highlight, mascara, lip and done! I figured out when you have the right tools, it speeds up the process. I randomly bought the Real Techniques Illuminate and Accentuate brush set at Ulta because I had a coupon and wanted brushes that I could keep in my work bag for that on the go beat. What can I say, I'm Penny Pinchin Pam!
This set is everything and gets the job done. I start with my brows and then my eyes. Love the shading brush to apply my base and main color to my lid and then the domed shadow brush for the crease. Finally, I'll use the smudged brush to add a little highlight on the inner corner of my eye for a little razzle dazzle. The orange miracle sponges is the best to bounce foundation on my face and then the purple miracle mini is perfect to apply my under eye concealer and fix any mistakes later on.
I use the large bronzing brush to dust my face with a translucent powder. Then I go in and apply my highlight and blush on the same contour brush. Add a little mascara, spritz a little finishing spray on my face so it gives my makeup a nice dewy finish, a quick swipe of lipstick and i'm ready for my closeup! Don't let them 18 minute YouTube tutorials trick you into thinking that you need to be beat to gods for every occasion, It really is ok to skip contour. Honestly, truly.
So on the 10th day of my Give-O-Way i'm giving away Real Techniques the Illuminate and Accentuate makeup brushes kit. Weather you're doing a 10 minute face or a face beat for the Gods honey, these brushes will get it done.
