Make-up Brush Review

Monday, September 3rd, 2018

Since cosmetic brushes are 25% off this month at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center, I thought it was good time to review some of the more common make-up brushes used for the face.

FOUNDATION:

Flat Top Kabuki:

The design of this brush allows for applications of both pressed mineral powder foundation or liquid foundations (though you should have one dedicated to each product rather than one brush for both products so that you do not transfer unwanted ingredients into your powder). It’s expertly designed “flat-top” as apposed to a rounded top, is perfect for buffing (in circular motion) mineral powder into a smooth, radiant finish. It provides light to medium coverage, depending on your layering preferences.

When using this the Flat Top Kabuki to apply liquid foundation, you can expect a soft, flawless, airbrushed finish with medium to full coverage. This brush also comes in a travel-friendly version for quick touch-up and on-the-go applications. Perfect purse size!

Pro Kabuki:

This is a tightly packed, round top, mineral powder foundation brush. Choose this brush when you are looking for the full coverage of a pro! Its brush head is packed with very dense, soft bristles for a full, radiant coverage.

 

CAMOUFLAGE / CONCEALER:

 Dual Foundation / Camouflage Brush:

This is a dual-ended, double duty brush. It is suitable for both liquid and cream concealers and foundations. One end offers the precision needed when applying camouflage and other end provides the ease an expert liquid foundation application.

Full Coverage Camouflage Brush:

This is a flat-domed shape brush with a somewhat pointed tip. This brush is commonly used to cover blemishes, facial redness, brown spot etc. It is intended for cream camouflage formulations. It is easy to blend and perfect. For a more fluid application, try misting the end of the brush with setting mist or water. Blot the fibers between paper towels to remove access. Then you are ready to begin applying your camouflage.

Precision Camouflage Brush:

This is a smaller version of the full coverage camouflage brush. It works well with cream camouflage, concealers or primers for smaller, detailed areas.

 

HIGHLIGHT / CONTOUR / BLUSH / POWDERS:

Contour / Highlighter Brush:

Make no mistake about it, when it comes to make-up brushes, the right contour brush is a girl’s best power tool! It is the key to changing your look from everyday to runway!! It is a dual-head brush. One end contours while the other end highlights. The contour end is tapered with a nice apex for more precise placement. I like to pinch the bristles together to accentuate the apex ,which give me more control when shading. It’s ideal for both highlighting and shading to create dimension, chiseled jawlines, nasal narrowing and prominent cheek bones.

Powder Brush:

Typically an extra full, soft, rounded brush designed for translucent powders, bronzers, finishing powders. Distributes sheer to medium coverage. Tap off any access powder before using a circular motion to buff the product on the skin.

Tapered Powder Brush:

A tapered powder brush is typically a soft brush with a pointed end for delicate placement of setting or finishing powders.

Powder Blush Brush:

These brushes can be rounded or angled and intended to apply blush, bronzers or highlight powders.

Dual-Fiber Blush Brush (a.k.a – Texture Brush):

I must own 4-5 of this brush. They are made from a blend of synthetic, soft, flowing fibers, which makes for a luxurious experience. The feathery, flat-top head delivers a light-weight applications of powders, shimmers, and cream blush. Perfect for layering and building.

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Today I would say I am bursting at the seams – and not because i’ve eaten too many holiday goodies (which I probably have), but rather due to the comments rolling in on the new Contour Kit now available at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center. I’m

Contour-FBso excited to offer this amazing tool that our patients cannot stop raving about!  They love it because it is so easy to use and the transformations remarkable!  I can’t believe how much fun w e are all having with it! Cosmetic tool of the year!!

It’s amazing how a little contouring can thin out the face, take your cheekbone height to a new level, give strength and structure to your jawline, essentially turning you into runway model in 20 seconds or less!  Look out world, where’s the red carpet! I hope you can walk in heels!

The kit is so simple to use.  It is made for any skill level as it comes with a diagram showing you exactly where to place the contour shades and where to place the highlight shades.  If the diagram isn’t enough then you always have me; your skincare specialist to guide you on how to best use this little magic palette for your specific facial shape.

The coContour-Kit-FBntour kit comes with four colors; two for contouring and two for highlighting.  The specially designed doubled-headed brush makes it easy to apply accurately.  It is perfect for blending, resulting in a professional looking finish. And did I tell you how you much FUN it is?!!  You will definitely want to gift this to all your best girlfriends this year!

If you haven’t tried your hand at contouring your facial features, I have only one question to ask.  What are you waiting for?
