A tip from our Director of Artistry

For a flawless base finish, Director of Artistry Pablo Rodriguez recommends starting with minimal product and building up your coverage.  

“Pick up a small amount of foundation with the tip of the bristles of the Foundation Brush and blend into the skin with a circular motion. Build-up in layers where needed with the Round Concealer Brush for extra coverage. Then, to contour the face in a natural way, open your mouth and drop your chin, then apply Gel Sculpt in the hollow area under the cheekbones and blend with the angled Contouring Brush. 

What’s even better? This brush is so good you can use it for cream blushers and highlighters as well. Looking for a total makeup brush refresh? Our new brush kits cover all the bases.
