Beauty Blender

I started doing my foundation with my own body essential part which is my hands/fingers. But I’ll be honest here since beauty blender has come into my life I hate doing it with my fingers. The reason behind is my fingers hurt 😉 and secondly, it doesn’t blend that well.

Beauty blender does blend very well and has many functions such as applying primer, foundation, concealer, cream contouring and even for baking.

For a budget-friendly beauty blender I’ll suggest you Real technique Sponges or to order the dupe one, which gets double to its actual size after wet. Best site to order dupe one is from Aliexpress but make sure you check there review section first.

Stippling brush

Don’t like dabbing on your face? Then you can always have an option for this beauty. Stippling brushes can make your work easy by moving your hand back and forth motion to blend your foundation. So for a beginner, it’s a helpful brush and worth buying it.

I’ll say if you need a pocket-friendly stippling brush then again go for real technique dupe available at chase and Imtiaz.

Powder Brush

I like to powder my under the eye and my t-zone area because it tends to get oily. So for me, a big fluffy brush is a must-have brush. My favorite powder brush is from E.L.F. If you have an oily face and you like to apply powder then, powder brush is a must.

Kabuki brushes can work too if you like to prefer that or sponges comes with face powder compact can be a good alternative as well.


Blending brush

Eye sponge applicator is for no good and is old-fashioned. Most Importantly if you got more fluffy blending brush better you blending would be. The one if use is from Aliexpress and wet n wild.

For more precise crease blending smaller blending brush will work wonders. The one I use is from E.L.F cosmetics.

Pencil brush
