Big makeup brushes! Necessity or futility? Are they worth buying?

Brushes are essential tools on the way to a perfect makeup. But do you know how to use them and which part of the face is a specific type of brush dedicated to?

1, Powder brush - a very important brush

Powder brush is a “must have” among your cosmetic tools. Even if you don’t like brushes, buy at least one of this type. Various powders sometimes include a puff, which is in my opinion absolutely useless. Puffs apply more powder than necessary and often create maps on the face. An ideal powder brush has a long handle to work well with it and excels with long, round cut fibers.

Choose a bulky brush with good density and soft fibers to avoid scratching when applying products on your face. Take a smaller amount of a powder and do not push hard on the brush - you do not want to create an unnatural mask on your face, but just fix and matte the overall makeup.

2, Brushes for makeup and BB cream 

You can choose from several types of brushes for liquid makeups and creams. A so-called foundation brush, or a makeup brush is a traditional one. It is flat and has longer, firm and dense fibers. However, working with it requires some skill and experience. Put your makeup on the back of your hand and use this brush to spread it on your face just as you would when applying with fingers.


Another brush, which is easier to use and to create a natural look, is the stipple brush. It is characterized by straight fibers cut in two lengths, each one of different color. Make points on your face to apply the makeup and then blend it into the skin making circles. Remember, that the higher density of fibers means a lower consumption of makeup and better results at the same time.

3, Brush for a blush - a very important brush

This brush category is called “blush brush” and includes various shapes and structures of fibers. The reason is that different blushers have a different consistency and pigmentation. Their application therefore requires a different kind of brush.

There is a common rule that on powder and highly pigmented blushers you should use a softer, round cut brush. On a baked blush use a bevel brush with firmer fibers, which make the application of blush more effective.


4, Fan Brush for a highlighter

The use of a highlighter isn’t one of the basic steps of the makeup, but you should know that using it can make your skin naturally shine and give your face more natural contours. Nevertheless I consider these brushes unnecessary, as you can usually use your own fingers or a makeup brush.


5, Kabuki Brush

Kabuki brushes deserve its own category because they are simply amazing and can be used practically for everything. These include bulky, thick, long-fiber brushes with very short handles that are great for applying all types of powders or bronzers.



The so-called flat kabuki (long handle brushes with very dense, rather short and straight cut fibers) can be used to apply makeup, blush or highlighter. It is also great for compact powders.
The high-quality kabuki brushes are velvet smooth and so dense, that the fibers do not "lay down” while in use. You can even make the brush stand on the bristles.

How to get rid of dark under eye circles? Here are our tips!

How to get rid of dark under eye circles? Here are our tips!

 Advices how to fight dark under eye circles are the same important as a way to mask them. At least for us who suffer with this nuisance. So how to properly cover dark circles? Let us help you!

  1. Don’t underestimate morning facial cleansing

In the morning, wash your face, which will remove sweat, dust and dirt from the night before, and once more gently cleanse your eyes.

Our tip: Clean your face thoroughly in the morning and in the evening. The best product is a micellar non-alcoholic water that does not irritate the skin, such as Aqua beauty micellar lotion. Apply to a cotton pad and clean the skin with gentle strokes. After using cleansing lotion, you do not have to rinse your face with water.

  1. Refresh yourself with an eye cream

Apply an eye cream that refreshes your eyes. The eye cream additionally serves as a reliable base under a concealer. Soft skin under eyes will be hydrated which helps concealer to spread equally, last for the whole day and prevent creation of unpleasant skin flakes.

Hot news is eye gold gel with seven kinds of herbs, which removes traces of tiredness in just a few minutes, while smoothes and rejuvenates your skin at the same time. Perfume-free gel for tired eyes offers a triple effect: relieves eye swelling, refreshes the eye area, and helps to eliminate dark eye circles.

  1. How to choose a color corrector for under eye circles

More than elsewhere here applies: Find the right one. The corrector has to completely match the type and shade of your skin.
The choosing can be made easier thanks to so-called color wheel: The colors in the color wheel which are opposite to each other, eliminate one another. That means that if you want to cover dark purple circles under your eyes, use a yellow corrector. On the other hand, if you want to cancel out a red area under your eyes, you need a corrector with a touch of green shade. A dark blue-colored eye area then reliably neutralizes a peach corrector.

Tip: Try the new Perfect me concealer that amazingly covers skin imperfections and brightens your eye area for 14 hours.*
It reduces dark under eye circles thanks to an active substance BIOPHYTEX® and suppresses signs of tiredness. Practical packaging with a brush and a light texture allows an easy and accurate application.

* In-vivo test (measured by determining the difference between dark area under eyes and normal skin) - within 4 weeks (use twice a day), dark circles are reduced by 64.6%.


BIOPHYTEX® is an active substance that reduces dark circles under eyes, soothes the skin and reduces redness.
It contains extracts from five herbs and yeasts. After the application the skin looks brighter and much healthier.

 

  1. Use a concealer to maximum advantage

Most of us quickly apply the concealer in the area around eyes, then wait for a few seconds and spread it. Use it more effectively! Concealers are used not only to hide unwanted imperfections on the face, but also for creating an ideal shape of the face. There are always rules for using concealers correctly.

When masking under eye circles we apply a small amount of the concealer in a line from the inner eye corner along the dark circle to the outer corner of the eye. You can make three lines and blend them in with your fingers or a brush. Or you can even try making about half a centimeter large dots, which are then blended in in a similar way as the lines.
The ocular area serves as the basis of a downward triangle. Apply the corrector over its entire length - you only need to draw a thin line, then direct the other two lines from the inner and outer corners of the eye down. This trick is unequaled not only in masking unwanted dark circles under your eyes but it also gives your face a flattering optical lifting.

Finally apply a makeup that will beautifully unify the whole look.

Besides cosmetic care is very important proper hydration of the body. Do not forget to drink! Drinks do not include coffee, tea and alcoholic drinks.

How to prevent your makeup from clustering in pores or wrinkles?

If you want to prevent unpleasant spots, you must first choose an appropriate makeup shade that should be similar to the color of your skin. It is recommended to use a foundation cream underneath which makes the application of a makeup much easier. Use fingers! Body heat guarantees a better adhesion of pigments to your skin.

 

How to choose the best makeup for your skin type?

Do you know the feeling when you come to a beauty store and stare unbelievingly at the huge amount of makeups in the shelves? Let us help you to choose the best makeup for your skin type.

Dry or mature skin: It is recommended to use a liquid and easily spreadable makeup which will guarantee the skin’s protection, hydration and nourishment.

Tip: BB Magic Beauty Cream 8in1Noblesse fusion make-up 

Oily skin: For this skin type are most suitable compact powders or oil-free liquid foundation makeups. Focus on the absence of lanolin and paraffin in the ingredients.

Tip: Selfie make-up, Matt control make-up

Combination skin: If you are an owner of combination skin, try an intelligent makeup that can adapt to the needs of your skin. Skin is more matte in the problematic T-zone while moisturized and nourished at the same time.

Problematic skin with acne:  Women with acne should use only a thin layer of makeup. Otherwise, their face may have the effect of a mask. The most suitable are compact or liquid makeups with the combination of corrector to cover small skin imperfections.
