I usually dab a wee bit wherever I’m trying to spot conceal and then use my foundation brush (usually a Real Techniques Expert Face brush) and gently tap against my skin so I don’t lose too much cover but can blur the edges. I sometimes use a synthetic, cream eyeshadow brush (small, a little fluffy) to diffuse the edges of an area.

My favorite brushes to use are ones that are small and tapered (a typical highlighting brush, really), as I can get decent coverage while still getting a more diffused look overall. For a very pigmented or more metallic highlighter (or if I’m going for a softer finish), I’ll use a fan brush. Sometimes if I feel like the highlighter is overboard,
I’ll dust translucent powder on top.

Week in Review | April 15th through April 21st

Happy Saturday! I always enjoy seeing what makes up the week’s top ten highest-reviewed products, so I hope you find it somewhat interesting as well! 🙂  I didn’t get to use much that wasn’t for testing this week, but more recently, I have been enjoying Tom Ford’s Nude Dipp quite a bit. I took that quad along with Chanel’s Empreint du Desert and put them in my vanity as go-tos (when the mood strikes, when I need something foolproof for a big group of blush/lip photos). I’m pretty sure I found a way to wear MAC Fairly Precious and Estee Lauder Naked Truth into at least one look this week, too.

I use mostly pencil eyeliner, so I typically will apply to my lower lash line.
I find myself looking down slightly into a mirror and trying not to blink, haha! I do the same for lining my lower waterline,
which I don’t do quite as often. I like using eyeshadow to blow out the lower lash line and use pencil brushes to do so.
