Starters - How to use Makeup Brushes!

Hello pretty ladies!

Today another post for starters. The kit I showed you in my first starters post, I am using the same makeup brush set to show you all how to use it. Many of the girls have it and those who doesn't have it, you SHOULD get it. I recommend you all to buy it. It is a Luscious Cosmetics 7 piece essential kit. I have the old packing of it, they have now come up with the new packaging. It is now for Rs.850/-

This is the old packaging.

Now it comes in black case with pink logo on it. Anyways, let's move further to the brushes. There are 7 brushes in it. They are :

1. Blush / Powder Brush.
        It is actually a blush brush, but it can be used as multi-purpose. You can use it to dust powder on your face, dust shimmer on your face and ofcourse blush on your cheeks. Hold the brush side ways and apply the color on the apples of your cheeks. To find the apples of your cheeks, smile and you will see them. To contour your cheeks with brown color, you have to pout to find your cheek bones. Hold the brush from the back side, do not hold it too closely. 

 2. Small Rounded Eyeshadow Brush
      It is a flat brush, used to apply eyeshadow on your lids. Dip the brush in the color and pat it on your lids. It can also be used to apply the color under the lower lash line, by taking the color on the tip of the brush.
It looks dirty, because I used it once. It helps the color to blend on your eye lids so well.

3. Eyeshadow Blender Brush
     This brush helps to blend the harsh lines on the crease of your eyes, as well as you can use to apply highlighter on your brow bone or to apply color on your crease. From this kit, this is my favorite brush. I LOVE blending brushes. This brush blends the color so well. Do not blend the colors into each other too much, because it will end up looking muddy, rather than giving a blending effect.
Crease is the section where you can see the shade line of the eyes, from where the brow bone starts. We apply color on the crease to give a shade and depth to the eyes.
 I know the brushes are all dirty, but they are used just once. :D

4. Eyeshadow Shader Brush
      This brush is more like a pencil brush. You can be very precise with this brush. With this brush, apply the color on the outer V section of your eyes. It will build up the color on the corners more and will give a shade to it. You can apply color under your lower lash line with this brush too.
Outer V section is the corner of the eyes, where you apply dark intense colors to make your eyes look a little big and for the shade and depth.

5. Eyeliner Brush
    Ofcourse, with the eyeliner brush you can apply EYELINER :D For those who use gel eyeliners, cake eyeliners or those liquid eyeliners which has the applicators that are not so good (tip by one of the followers), can be applied with it. You can apply very thin line with it or you can go all BOLD with it. You can create winged eyeliner or cat eyes. Anything with this brush.

6. Lip Brush
      In the new packaging, it comes in a pink metallic retractable casing. Which is a good thing about it. What I didn't liked about this brush is that it didn't had casing over it, the plastic cover over the lip brush and also the liner brush to protect the brush. But, now they have the retractable one, which is a good thing. 
Why do we use lip brush? It is because it helps the lipstick to go into the corners and stays on for longer and gives a good finish to the lips. 

7. Eyebrow / Eyelash Brush
     This brush is also a must have, because you need to comb your eye brows after the makeup is done. Because, eyebrows needs to be fixed too. If you don't brush them and apply pencil or brow powder to it, your makeup will look unfinished.
Tip: Apply pencil or brow powder to your brows and if you don't have a brow gel, use a lip balm (little bit) and brush it with the brow brush. The brows will remain at it's place.
After applying mascara, if you feel it's too much on the lashes, you can brush it out a little with this brush.

I hope this post was helpful for all the starters, on how to use these brushes. And, I know you will do a good job with your makeup with these brushes :)
If you have any questions regarding this post about brushes or anything else, please feel free to ask me.
Wash your brushes after you have used them thrice. Let them in the air over-night. These are somethings you have to keep in mind, so that your brushes last long.
Till next time...

  7. i bought this a few days ago , i was a little disappointed cuz they were very few bristles and they were coming off really fast , and the blush brush isnt as thick or fluffy as yours , will be reviewing it soon

  8. Really? You bought the new kit? The duo fibre and the kabuki brushes has this problem of falling alot, for that you can wash your brushes with mild shampoo and let them dry in the air over night and if you have the same shedding problem, contact Luscious. :)

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

About the product:

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.
