If you're a basic foundation/blush/mascara girl, or maybe you're just now dipping your toes into the infinite pool of eye makeup possibilities, this post is dedicated to you. I was once in your shoes - well, kinda. There was a specific turning point where one of my best friends (and my roommate at the time), Brittany, made me realize that the world of artistry surrounding the eyes was a vast one...and it was calling my name. I started realizing that with different brushes and strategic placement of various eyeshadow shades and liners - and sometimes shadows used AS liners - I could create masterpieces. Ok, it's not that dramatic, but I still enjoy my daily application of eye makeup. It's a creative outlet for me.
a great starting brush set This guy's got everything you need: a big brush for broad application, a skinny one for liquid or potted liner, a perfectly-domed one for shading right inside the crease, and a smudger to make any eyeliner look like the "smoky eye".
And just for fun, I'm going to include a small video gift I made for my sister explaining what I bought her for her birthday (hence the title) and how to use them. The other gift was this: an eyeshadow set from LORAC , and you'll see me explain it as well.
I hope this helps! Shoot me any questions or suggestions. Is anyone even reading this? Are y'all out there? ;)
