Whenever we can help you save money by not having to buy yet another tool, we can’t wait to share! Contouring is all about the brush and the placement. You can try to only put product on the bottom half of the brush but it’s not going to deposit the product targeted in only hollow. No problem! Try this instead:  (more…)

Liquid blush is the best way to create a natural-looking flush. It melts into the skin better than cream or powder blush. Liquid highlighter illuminates your eyes better than powder highlighter can. Basically, liquid is the way to go. And dotting, blending and stippling are how we get it done.  (more…)

HOW TO DISGUISE OVER-PLUCKED BROWS

We’ve all been there. We get a little tweezer happy and before we know it, we have tadpoles with tails. Or it’s not our fault at all and we’ve entrusted a new esthetician who clearly had a different (thinner) vision in mind. But don’t panic!

BROW OPTIONS

Ever wonder the difference between brow products? Some shade and fill in while others define… Because we live to simplify things for you, the lovely Bria Murphy is back to showcase four different brow products (all roughly the same shade) and how the brows (and face!) change with each.

TINTED BROW GEL: This creates a soft, groomed look with a hint of shading. This one is our favorite because it builds brow fibers that create a fuller-looking brow.

MECHANICAL PENCIL: A pencil is great because you can lightly shade (like I did above) or you can make really straight lines for a very strong brow. I also love pencils when using a brow stencil. This one wins for best shades and self-sharpening tip.

BROW SHADOW: Filling in the brow with a shadow is the easiest way to fill in any “holes” or sparse areas. This duo is universally gorgeous on most.

BROW POMADE: Pomades might be my new favorites because they shade like a wet shadow would with a lot of color payoff. This formula is one of our favorite mousses.

Which one(s) do you use? We’d love to know in the comments below!
