Now let’s go back to the brushes!!! First part which is the most important one why should you use brush and not Finger?

Why Brush & No Finger?

It is not wrong to use your finger but with brush you can achieve optimum precision, coverage; reach every corner of your face and will help save time and money during application. If you realize your finger can be too big for your eyes sometime and that will create a big mess on your eyes…. Trust me with your finger it’s so hard to blend the crease area, usually I end up blending the colour onto my entire eyelid. Not to mention near tear duct area, it will never possible with my fingers to reach even with the tiny pinky finger.

“A brush is an extension of the hand, and is a fundamental tool for a make-up artist – whether he is a professional or amateur make-up artist; his canvas is the face.” Dany Sanz

Using finger also end up taking too much product unlike brush which can slowly pick up the product and build the layer to achieve more intense colour. Do you know you finger is not flat and the curvature as well as non uniform point of strength from your finger will cause uneven foundation application.

Last week I was at the Make Up For Ever brush workshop with Erika Saenz, Regional Education Manager to show us the difference using finger and brush to apply make up.

Make Up For Ever Artisan Brush13Erika says “You must use a brush to apply your make up for an even and precise application”

She start off by applying foundation using her fingers then move to using the brush…

Can’t see big difference in my picture because of the back light from the window behind Joyce, the model. In actual it makes a big difference….I agree to Erika that using brush makes a big difference as I used to use my finger to apply foundation too especial in a rush but honestly using brush require the similar time to apply foundation and may be faster than using finger too!! Don't believe? Try it out yourself!

See this picture of difference between applying eye shadow using finger and brush. Also look at the difference using lipstick to apply directly and using a lip brush (urgh such a mess on the left side of the lip) !! So now you why we should use brushes not our finger??

Why choose Make Up For Ever Artisan Brush

Make Up For Ever brush are made from 100% Engineered Fibres 0% Natural Hair and so they are animal cruelty free. Fibres?? How can they pick up powder? Aren’t Natural Hair the best? Hang on, let me explain this… I ask the same question like you did. These hair is a result of 7 years of research and development made from high quality new generation engineered fibres. These fibres deliver more precise and consistent make-up results for the PROS as well as for beginner, for everyone.

The fibres is so soft and fluffy as good as the natural hair and there are more durable compare to the natural hair. I support Make Up For Ever intention toward more eco-friendly product… These brushes are environment friendly certified!! What I like is that is has 2 type of hair which is the straight and wavy fibers for different function. The straight one are for cream and liquid and the wavy are for powder for a more diffused finishing. Also the bevel tip is brilliant idea!! It can be used to pick up product as well as to mixed and blend it!! The wide range of brush type is really amazing, there must be a brush that suits your desired function!
