The right tools for the job!

When it comes to make up application, you have to get to know your skin type so that you find products that are compatible to avoid breakouts or mishaps. Also, you need to know the exact tone of your skin especially for when you need to choose foundation, powder and concealer as well as colour tones that best suit your face and facial features.

This is not enough however if you don't have the right make up tools. It is useless to have the most expensive make up items and not have the basic application tools. In this post, I will list the essential brushes and applicators you need to achieve a perfect result each time!


~ Powder Brush
~ Contouring Blusher/Bronzer Brush (I have one for the blusher and one for the bronzer)
~ Conventional Blusher/Bronzer Brush
~ Eyeshadow applicators (sponge type or hairy type)
~ Blending brushes (the smaller they are, the finer the detail)
~ Eyebrow Wand
~ Eyelash/Eyebrow Comb
~ Lip Brush

You will need sponges to apply liquid foundation. The best bet is a wedge sponge. You will also need round flat applicators for powders. Keep them clean by washing them in warm, soapy water after each use.


You will need a good quality sharpener to keep your eye pencils, lip liners, and eyebrow pencils in tip top condition. I use e.l.f. Dual Pencil Sharpener. It has two holes; one for the regular brushes and one for the smaller ones, along with a pick with which you can remove any left-over make up from the sharpener blades. A bonus mono sharpener is also included in the pack.

Basically, that is all you need for excellent make up application. Practice makes perfect they say, so go on, look out for the right types of products and start experimenting right away!!
