Sometimes it is just a little thing that makes the difference - this also applies to InStyle Online Editor Alex. Since she discovered this one thing for herself, the makeup has been sitting ...
Make-up mistakes: It's guaranteed to go wrong
My make-up routine used to look something like this:
1. Lubricate the face with tons of concealer and hope that you can no longer see the hard edge
2. Apply a well covering powder with the pad from the can, with which I look like a ghost
3. Bring life back to your face with blush, preferably with a hard edge and as unblended as possible, because time is short and you have to go to work ...
Uuups: Too much powder makes you old
The only problem: At some point I found that with all the powder on my face I not only looked old and sick, but also ruined my skin. And the blush on my face didn't make it any better now.
And then Ben came. At one appointment I met Benjamin Becher, make-up artist from stars like Lena Gercke. He explained exactly which brush from makeup storage drawer
to use for what. Of course, I tried to imitate the look at home - to no avail.
The solution: I couldn't do anything with my cheap old brushes. So I realized that good brushes are really crucial.
Zoeva: hype about a brush manufacturer
I finally understood why all makeup-crazy women went crazy when they saw the Zoeva brush. Because: The brush is the game changer! The best make-up is of no use if you cannot distribute it properly.
Expensive makeup brushes
In the meantime there are always a number of good makeup brushes
in my home. Among them are of course brushes from Zoeva. But other manufacturers have also convinced me.
My absolute favorite brush is, for example, the finishing brush from Nude by Nature. So soft and fluffy - hard edges no longer stand a chance.
That's why good makeup brushes make the difference
Here's how I learned from Ben that brushes make the difference:
1. The complexion becomes more even with a good brush and you have to use considerably less make-up.
2. There are brushes for application and brushes for blending. For example, a contour is first set with a firmly bound, flat brush and then blended in a circular motion with a soft brush.
