CURRENT OBSESSION: blendSmart Makeup Brush
Post Contains Affiliate Links
This is literally a "makeup for dummies" tutorial because I am not a beauty blogger but I thought that would give you guys a real sense of how easy it is to use!!! I also talked to Lori who represented blendSMART at the conference, about answering some of the questions from my live unboxing I did on Periscope.
Here are the answers to some of the questions:
Are the heads washable?
The brush heads are washable! Just take off the handle and wash it with soap and water or dry brush cleaner from Sephora. Make sure to lay it on it's side to dry.
Tip: Buy a second makeup brush to use while your first one dries! They recommend washing it once a week, which is pretty standard for your makeup brushes!
What other heads are available?
You can also purchase a powder brush and a blush brush. The brush I used in the video was a foundation brush, which can be used for both powder or liquid foundation. The blush brush is really great for setting powder or mineral powder and the powder brush works great with both loose or pressed powder.
Also coming out later this year are a bronzer brush, a buffing brush, a detail brush, and a contour brush!
What about the eye brush?
The eye brush is coming later but it will be a different handle with it’s own brush head
Tips for using your new blendSMART brush!
Dot the liquid foundation around your face (rather than putting it directly on your brush) and use the foundation brush to blend it.
You can also dot on your concealer on your face and use the foundation brush to blend that as well.
From Lori: "I also add concealer all over my eye and CLOSE my eye and then blend with the foundation brush."
This is something I would really like to try because I always feel like my eyes seem so hooded and darkly colored - especially those giant bags under my eyes! Ha!
All in all, I give the blendSMART brush a thumbs up and if you are a makeup brush junkie, you should definitely add this to your collection! It is great for a natural looking makeup application. You can find it at blendSMART OR get it on Sephora!
Many thanks to Meg Hawley for the wonderful images!
