What’s all the fuss about… fancy make-up brushes?
If you’re someone for whom an eyeshadow palette that comes with a little sponge applicator thingie is already luxury enough, the following may be a revelation: there’s a make-up brush frenzy out there.
It’s enough to make you revert to fingers. Yet, virtuous though frugality feels, sometimes fingers aren’t always best. They lack accuracy, especially when it comes to fiddly corners and feline flicks. One of my best beauty discoveries of recent times has been the Cailyn Cosmetics O Wow Brush (I know; luckily it’s good). A synthetic ‘brush’ that feels like a cross between a sponge and velvet, it offers the smoothest landing of foundation – bar none.
Before I met the O Wow I was foundationphobic– I spend too much time standing outside fashion shows in harsh light that cruelly spotlights tide marks to risk it. But the O Wow is the MI5 agent of the beauty world, delivering improved skin tracelessly. It is utterly brilliant.
Use it to blend a tiny dollop (you can always add more) of your regular foundation/BB cream/concealer with some moisturiser/ illuminator on the back of your hand, and apply for streak-free, invisible coverage.
