Beauty Basics: MAC Eye Brushes

Beauty Basics is a series covering basic products and tools that help to make applying your makeup easier. To view the entire series to date, be sure to visit the beauty basics, or you can view posts within the series about MAC Eye Brushes.

Focus On: MAC 204 Lash Brush

MAC 204 Lash Brush ($11.00) is made up of synthetic fibers, and it is typically used to apply mascara to lashes. You can also separate lashes by twisting it through lashes to remove clumping. It also makes for an excellent brow groomer to keep brows in place. I personally prefer to use this for separating lashes and brushing stray brow hairs back into place. While still useful for mascara application, I do find disposable mascara wands tend to be much better–particularly if you have lots of mascara to apply to numerous people, since it there is a lot less clean-up with disposable wands.

How do you like to use this brush?

The Only In A Woman’s World campaign definitely has a bit of a theme — making your crazy-busy life easier. Why not streamline your beauty routine and still look gorgeous? (At least, when you’re pressed for time and can’t spend a half hour on your makeup!)

At the MTV Movie Awards, Vanessa Hudgens looked head-to-toe gorgeous, and her look was extremely subtle–very natural–very your-skin-but-better kind of a look. Here’s how I would recreate it… Continue reading →
