How to brush for blush perfection!

How to brush for blush perfection!

It seems like a really obvious thing, but if you’re not an expert makeup applicator, then there are some good tips for applying blush and bronzer or contour.

 

Use the right tool!

Use the right brush with your blusher or bronzer - one that’s suited to pressed powder and that will allow you to direction your application movements.

 

The best blush brushes are long handled, large brushes with tapered or ponytail shaped bristles to give you direction.

 

Use natural hair (as long as it’s cruelty free) or nylon bristles, but make sure you wash your brush often to keep it clean and in shape.

 

Applying blush for your face shape

There are 5 main face shape types: round, long, square, oval and heart and the way you apply your blusher can bring out the best in your face shape. Just a few simple rules, directions and focus areas make all the difference. 

 

◦ Round – Apply along cheekbones in an upwards direction to slim the face
◦ Oval – Apply along the apples and flick upwards towards the temples
◦ Heart – Apply UNDER the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temples to soften the chin
◦ Square – Focus on the apples of the cheeks to soften the angles. You can also apply to the sides of the jaw to contour and soften a strong jaw line
◦ Long – Brush along the apples of the cheeks and straight out towards the ear to widen the face

 

TIPS

Always use a brush and not a pad to ensure even and subtler, natural colour!

 

Our best blusher brush ever!

We have the best tools of the trade in our Eco Vegan brushes, but we’re constantly looking to improve. So we’ve updated our powder brush to give THE best blusher application ever…

 

We’ve slightly changed the shape of our Eco Vegan Powder Brush to make sure it’s 100% focused on two products: Blush & bronzer.

 

The new shape is more like a 'ponytail' – a beautifully full brush that tapers to the end. This allows more precise application of blusher and bronzer in a sweeping, directional motion.

 

TIP – for bronzer, apply using the side of the brush.

¡Brocha Perfecta, Aplicación Perfecta!

Parece algo muy obvio, pero si no eres muy experta aplicando maquillaje, existen excelentes tips para aplicar el rubor, bronceador y para contornear el rostro.

 

¡Usa la herramienta correcta!

Usa la brocha correcta con tu rubor o bronceador – una que sea especial para polvo compacto y que te permita direccionar tus movimientos de aplicación. Las mejores brochas de rubor tienen mangos largos y cerdas en forma de cono o de cola de caballo para darle dirección a la aplicación.

 

Aplicación del rubor de acuerdo a tu forma de rostro

Hay 5 tipos principales de rostro: redondo, largo, cuadrado, ovalado y en forma de corazón y la manera en cómo apliques el rubor puede destacar lo mejor de ti de acuerdo a tu tipo de rostro. Unas simples reglas, instrucciones y áreas de enfoque pueden hacer la diferencia. 

 

◦ Redondo – Aplica a lo largo de tus mejillas con dirección hacia arriba para adelgazar el rostro.
◦ Ovalado - Aplica en el centro de tus mejillas con dirección hacia tus sienes.
◦ Corazón- Aplica debajo del centro de tus mejillas con dirección hacia las sienes para suavizar el mentón.
◦ Cuadrado – Enfoca el centro de tus mejillas para suavizar los ángulos. También lo puedes aplicar a los lados de la mandíbula para crear contorno y suavizarla.
◦ Largo – Aplica en el centro de tus mejillas hacia tus oídos para hacer que luzca más ancho el rostro.

 

TIPS

◦ Siempre utiliza brocha y no almohadilla, para asegurar un color más sutil y natural.
◦ Aplica polvo translúcido para que el rubor o bronceador duren por más tiempo.
◦ Si eres propensa a las manchas o al enrojecimiento, usa un buen primer para igualar el color.

 

    ¡Nuestra mejor brocha de rubor!

    Tenemos las mejores herramientas del mercado con nuestras Brochas Eco Veganas, pero siempre estamos tratando de mejorar así que hemos rediseñado nuestra brocha de rubor para darte ¡la mejor aplicación!

     

    Hemos cambiado ligeramente la forma de nuestra brocha para asegurarnos de que está enfocada en la aplicación de dos productos: rubor y bronceador.

     

    La nueva forma se parece a una “cola de caballo” – una hermosa brocha que se afila hasta su base, esto permite una aplicación más precisa del rubor y bronceador deslizándola en un movimiento con dirección.

     

    TIP – Para el bronceador, utiliza el costado de la brocha.
