I think the secret to a great MakeUp application is HOW you apply it!
Practice at anything makes you better. Same for makeup, the more you try new things and practice with different techniques the better you become at it. Besides practice, a few things that can really help are a great set of CLEAN brushes, LIGHTING, and staying organized!
Have you ever applied makeup inside then walked out of the house and it be a LITTLE darker or lighter than you thought! Girls, be honest! YES! It’s happened to me a MILLION TIMES! It’s happened to ALL of us! My last bathroom had very few windows so it was always so dark, the lighting was horrible! Which is why I bought this mirror! It makes the WORLD of difference! It’s super bright, it brings NATURAL DAY LIGHT to you when your applying makeup! THIS is my life saver. I love this thing so much I STILL use it every day, even after our move with a very bright bathroom. In fact, I love it so much I have 3! One to travel with, one in my bathroom, and one at my weekend home. It is doubled sided as well with 5x/1x magnification, perfect for up-close tweezing too!
This mirror is incredible! Especially for the price point!! You can’t beat it and the results it brings you! Lighting makes A HUGE difference! Trust me! Why do you think makeup artist either have the chair near a window for natural light or have a huge light to bring them the light they need when applying makeup! Yes, lighting makes a difference!
Now when it comes to brushes, my collection is very ECLECTIC! I have got every brand from Dior, Sephora, Mac, Morphe, to Artis. But NO brush, I don’t care what the price point is, is as effective as a CLEAN brush! Have you seen these gadgets before?! OMG! My mom just got this for me for Christmas! LOVE! It makes cleaning and drying your brushes SO much easier! I used to do them all by hand and they would set out for the day to dry! Not any more! Takes me about 5 min to do ALL of my brushes ( and I have allot, trust me.) Plus again, for the price point, no brainer!
Staying organized! Makes a huge difference! Have you ever been looking for a liner and can’t find it so you used another and well… it just wasn’t the one you REALLY wanted. MakeUp organizers help that! Plus most mornings, I do not have allot of time to waste, having my everyday makeup out in its little caddy helps with time and stress! Then I keep everything organized by drawer and in sections together, so on weekends when I do want to change it up, I know EXACTLY where to look!
Plus have you ever pulled a make up compact out and it was lying next to another that busted or got lipstick or liner all over it? You didn’t even notice when you grabbed it, so now its all over your hands and now ALL over your face! Yes, not fun. Prevent that with staying organized for very little expense!
Lightening makes a huge difference girls! I’m telling you! So can clean brushes and an organized collection!
Here is where you can find these incredible and affordable finds:
Hope you find some STRENGTH in these little makeup must haves that can make your life a littler easier, and well… PRETTY!;)
Happy Tuesday Mom Queens!
