Looks – Incredibly Soft, Pale Yellow and Brown

I think brushes are essential to good makeup, but expensive brushes are NOT essential to good makeup. I used a cheap random brush I found at my boyfriend’s mom’s house (of all things I forgot, I forgot my 239!) to apply this look. It didn’t go on as pigmented, perhaps, as it would have with the 239, but I got a lovely soft look that worked just as well. Even though the brush was cheap (and it wasn’t even really the right brush to use for shadow application, LOL), it felt relatively soft and worked out. So, moral of the story? Quality brushes can be found to fit any budget.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Goin’ Bananas eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Evening Aura eyeshadow (LE) on middle of lid, Espresso eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) to highlight brow, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Suncentered Color Forms powder (LE) on cheeks. I wore Tropic Glow slimshine (LE) with Nymphette lipglass on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Goin’ Bananas = Bright Sunshine; Evening Aura = Goldmine + Orange; Femme-fi = Shroom; Suncentered = Cantaloupe; Tropic Glow = Lovelorn
