makeupbrush-powderbrushI tried my best! Trust me. But these are the least that I can show :/ There were many in my collection.

Featuring in this video are all makeup brushes you will find in makeup brush sets, what they are used for and which ones worked for me.

Ideal for Liquid foundations but can be used for powder and cake foundations too. Use them for your cream contouring and highlighting or for applying face powder, no restrictions 🙂

The one in the picture is by Real Technique. It is basically a contour brush but I use it to apply blush and highlighters. Amazing results.

Flat foundation brushFlat Foundation Brush:

These are flat foundation brush , if you want , you can try with it but I am not able to use it for foundation instead I use it to apply face mask, concealer & cream contour.

These are some of the brushes I mentioned in the video. To see the complete video, click here. Here is a suggestion for everyone, if you are a beginner, I suggest go for an affordable makeup brush sets, they are equally of good quality as high-end. Do not splurge on high-end, first try from the drugstore which ones suit you. Drugstore makeup brushes are also of extraordinary quality, they will give you the same result as any other brushes will. Never think that if you are using MAC , then only you will get flawless results because it is totally wrong. Achieving flawless makeup is by the technique and product you use not your brush. My makeup brushes are mostly from the Drugstore because I am very satisfied with them. No complains whatsoever , so check down below my suggestions.

  1. Bh Cosmetics Brush sets
  2. Coastal Scents Brush sets
  3. Morphe Brushes
  4. Real Techniques.

I also have bought some sets which is not of any well-known brand such as Make Up For You. If you get your hands on one of these sets, then use it! Regarding shedding of bristles even two of my Sigma brushes started shedding after my first wash. Moral of the story, go for affordable ones with good quality. The brands I mentioned above are the ones providing us with reliable quality brushes.

Note: Make sure to clean your brushes every week. This is how I clean.

Cons:

  • the packaging- I wish the lipstick bullet where the product is in, would have been of good material as Glamgals’ other products which has an awesome packaging.

Check out my earlier Glamgals Product reviews on their nail product and dual lip gloss that won my heart.

My final verdict:

As I have mentioned the Pros and Cons already, I wouldn’t be going to much of those details. I’m sure you might be wondering about the longevity of the lipstick. It is not long-lasting, which is very much okay with me because it doesn’t claim to be one. Not unless you are buying a long-lasting lip product, you shouldn’t expect one to be. Lipsticks always need touch ups that’s the reason I make sure I carry the lipstick shade I am wearing on a particular day, in my purse as I’d be needing it for touch ups sometime later during the day. So here you are getting extra makeup tips from me. 😛 However the Glamgals Creme Matte lipstick did last for hours till I had burger and french fries party 😛 You get so much of the product in the tube that make is so worth every penny and of course the quality which I already have raved about earlier.

My Favorite Blending Brushes

A secret to perfect eye makeup look is a lot of blending. We do not want to show anyone as if a painter used our eyes as canvas. When doing my makeup, I always remember these golden words-

Yes, yes ,yes to blending and No to harsh lines”

I always say this, there are no rules when it comes to makeup. If I find a brush that works perfectly on the crease of my eyes, is soft, and fluffy, I will use it as blending brush. All depends on what look I am going for that day.

So here are my favorite brushes to blend my eyeshadows , whether matte or shimmery. I own way more than a normal girl should own(not proud) brushes but I picked my top most favorites.

Me favorite blending brushes
Me favorite blending brushes

So I have here :

2 Sigma Dual brush I got from my Eyeshadow palettes in Dare and Flare- The black bristles shed a bit otherwise it is just my ideal.

2 Real Techniques brushes- The very soft bristles makes blending of multiple eye shades on the crease.

1 dual eye brush from my Anastasia Beverly Hills World Traveler Palette. – This brush is my no.1 favorite because of the size. Perfect for cut crease looks.

1 from Bh cosmetics which I grab most of the time. This came in a set I bought not too long ago and it was such a bomb deal. Check here.

1 bought from a Facebook seller ,a dupe of BH Cosmetics Sculpt line and it is amazing.

What is your favorite blending brush?

Remember, our brushes need equal care and we should wash them regularly. Check out this post to see how I clean my makeup brushes.

Happy Makeup- ING ❤

Am I late?–Fall Favorites!!

Hello Beauties,

It’s all about Fall in the beauty and fashion world. I couldn’t resist but dig into my makeup stash fro some “fall-ish” products which I am going to share with you all. My bad, I cannot get all makeup brands in Dubai. Even the drugstore ones becomes high-end if bought from here. Thinking smile So I always opt for online stores/sellers that can get all my desired products from U.S for a lesser price than what the market offers. I wish I had a best friend in the U.S who would volunteer to ship to me and I can whole heartedly shop from the U.S websites. Angel Okay so me coming back to reality, I have ordered online couple of items which are ideal colors for FallRed heart

Review- Smashbox Double Exposure Eyeshadow Palette

“Hard work never go unnoticed”

I strongly believe in this. Here is one of example of why.

 I saw this picture of a model with blue eye makeup on Smashbox’s Facebook page and I just felt like recreating it and I did. You can check details here. After a month of posting, I received a message from them that they would like to send me their Double Exposure Eyeshadow palette as a gesture of appreciation. It truly touched my heart. That was so kind and generous of them. I did the recreation without ever thinking of getting back anything in return and here I am today enjoying with the palette. 🙂

Review- GlamGals Professional Glitterati Nails

Hello Beauties,

I wanted to do some de-cluttering earlier today and ended up playing with another amazing product from GlamGals. Whew! I wish I had so much time to try out the glitters with different nail colors but I’m still happy with how much I did. Today I have with you another pocket -friendly beautifying product for your nails that is the GlamGals Professional Glitterati nails. I have talked about GlamGals in my previous post that how impressed I am with the quality of their products and packaging for the price they offer. I received quite a few items from them and decided to review them one by one starting with my most favorite product the Dual Lip gloss and today my 2nd fave product. ❤

This time I will just go ahead with the review and pass on with the packaging as I have talked a lot about it already.

glitteratinails

So this one has the colored nail polish on one end and the glitter nail polish on the other end. You can wear them alone separately or with each other. I have tried wearing only the red, then red with glitter on one nail ,then glitter all over the reds and lastly used the glitters on top of while nail paint. It is up to you how to use it. Just play with it and be creative. For me glitters are always my top most choice as you do not need a lot of hard work applying them and it gives that oomphy look in just few seconds. Not to mention all the hard work you need in removing them. 😛
