Welcome to the first official post from the Brown & Blushin’ series. The series will highlight questions and pictures for the “new” blush applier. I also hope to dispel the myth that warmer tones can not wear blush. Oh yes, honey…when applied right, we can wear anything from bronzers to hot pink and bright orange blushes.
Hmm mmmm….stay tuned to see exactly what I mean.
Today’s post will be about brushes; one of the most important elements of brush application. I, personally don’t think there is a typical “blush brush”. Different brushes, however, give you different outcomes. The brushes that I will be highlighting today come from the same family but have very little relation to each other.
Say hello to MAC’s 129, 184 and 182
I didn’t mind savin’ up for these brushes. They are worth it beyond belief.
–MAC 129 ($34)–
Why I love this brush
: It is amazingly soft and is perfect for applying blush on the cheeks. I use this when I want color concentration on the apples of the cheeks.
–MAC 187 ($42)–
Why I love this brush
: This was my first MAC face brush and holds a special place in my heart. The 187 is perfect for stipling my tinted moisturizer but I found it has other majestic uses when applying blush. It is perfect for lightly applying bronzers and taking color all the way up to the hairline….without being “too” much.
–MAC 182 ($45)–
Why I love this brush: My baby buki….I love this precious little brush. It picks up a lot of color and great for contouring. Contouring? Yep….the kabuki brush turns into a contouring brush with just a squeeze.
