I could be exaggerating however the level is that I controlled to get my palms in this brush set. I don’t deserve it, I do know. You’re pondering, What’s a pleasing woman such as you going to do with all the ones professional-quality brushes? Fair query, mate. I’m now not a certified. I’m now not a vlogger. Not even shut. I’m an absolutely beginner, 20-something New Yorker with a penchant for lovely issues. But despite the fact that I’m now not a professional, I do must get the make-up on my face in some way. With the entire set of ultimate gear (to not point out they are gorgeous, because it is going with out pronouncing), I think like I will be able to do much more than I as soon as may just. So, I will be able to let you know precisely what I’m going to with them. And I can at this time:
I’ve were given numerous vacation events bobbing up (I swear, my invitations will probably be right here any day now), so whilst basis isn’t my on a regular basis, Dior’s Diorskin Nude Air goes to make an look as step one in every of my vacation good looks appears to be like. It’s a “serum” basis, that means it’s light-weight and blendable, however with complete protection—simply in case I finish up in entrance of a digital camera flash. To observe, this brush is absolute best in that it makes me really feel like I’m actually portray my face on. Romantically, despite the fact that, like an Impressionist may. It’s were given a properly grippy care for with a flat, moderately stiff head of hairs that blends basis right into a wealthy matte end.
Next up is some other basis brush constructed for utility of both liquid or powder merchandise. My regimen requires concealer subsequent, so I’ll use it to use Laura Mercier Secret Concealer (neither liquid nor powder; oops) below my eyes, at the aspects of my nostril, alongside my jawline. Once that’s completed, I’ll use it to softly mix all of the edges in combination and clean anything else that’s nonetheless visual. Hi. No, I’m now not dressed in any make-up. Why do you ask?
I’m a powder woman; all the time were. I’ve were given a kind of slender faces that doesn’t glance as just right glossy, so a snappy dusting of a gentle completing powder makes me really feel safe and whole. Chanel pairs neatly with the vacations and in addition with extra Chanel, so I’ll be making use of this Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder with the Powder Brush far and wide for a, uh, herbal end.
An outlier just because it does now not are compatible into the go back and forth case with the remainder of my brushes. No subject; it’s retractable! This one’s for the blush. I’m in most cases interested in a light red or a rusty more or less purple with my blushes, however the vacations put me in a temper for anything other. Nars Amour is the present winner—a matte, rose colour that just about fringes on bronzer in its end. This I’d pair with a vintage, smudge-y, grey-and-brown smokey eye and a nude lip reminiscent of Charlotte Tilbury’s English Beauty. Nars Seduction is some other just right blush: it’s a deep, mauve-y plum colour, which I believe would glance great between a heavy eyeliner and lip gloss.
Here is your golden kid of the set: A stiff brush formed like a felt-tipped marker and supposed for making use of cream eyeliner- and eyeshadow-pots. Delivering within the clean utility division. Chanel does eyes higher than any person, so this time I’ll be going complete ‘60s with Calligraphie de Chanel Longwear Cream eyeliner, making a thick, lustrous black wing along the top lash line. Can’t fail to remember the salmon-y red lip, white spotlight, blue eyeshadow, and shiny red blush with this glance.
Last—however there’s no least, best Chanel—is that this forehead definer and groomer. Brush up with the spoolie finish. Draw with the “definer” finish. Cap them to stay them blank and secure. Finish with Glossier Boy Brow (in Black for me, please!).
