Matte Blush

Matte blush is often very pigmented, but my personal preference is for something with a little more sheen to it (even just a little bit) so it doesn’t look flat on me.

Contour Brushes

These can be such a challenge to find the right angle and width for your face shape! I tend to prefer a smaller brush head so I know it’ll fit where I need it to (hollows of the cheeks), but then I’ll look for one that is less dense so it will be forgiving to use.

Loose Powder Brushes

I used to feel like they were all too big, and often, almost all the same shape, but now, I feel like we have so much variety in brush shapes, sizes, and styles to choose from that I have no general rants. I do prefer flatter, moderately dense brushes for loose powder, though!

Loose Blush

I love how finely-milled loose blush often is, but I am such a pressed powder person for convenience/mess/ease.

Brow Pencils

I typically alternate between powder eyeshadow or a brow cream/gel (in the pot) liner, so I haven’t used a brow pencil in awhile, though I’ve had a recent urge to try one.

Brow Gel

When they actually hold without getting super-crunchy, so love them.  Nothing to rant about except the crunchy ones!
