Whatever makeup you’re applying, you’ll get a better result if you use the correct makeup accessories for the job. Anything else and the look you achieve will be less than professional. When you’ve spent good money on quality makeup, it makes sense to get the best effect by using the right brushes, pads and other accessories.
High density face paint sponges can be used for ordinary cosmetic makeup as well as the water based paints used for dressing up or fancy dress purposes. The high density gives a firm sponge that is not prone to soaking up too much makeup such as foundation, so it makes for economical application as well as precision for a flawless complexion. They’re soft and gentle for use around the eyes, and you can cut them in half to provide flat edges, enabling you to apply makeup evenly across all the planes of the face.
Eye makeup accessories such as brushes and liners are vital for neat application, whether you’re using powder based shadows or liquid liners for definition. A good eyeliner brush should have quite firm bristles to allow for shaping and precise line drawing. Ideally the brush will taper to a fine point, making it easy to vary the thickness of the eyeliner to achieve different effects.
Cosmetic pads are really useful for both applying and removing makeup. They’ll happily double as a powder puff when you’re using pressed powder foundation or finishing powder, and at the end of the day they’re the perfect makeup accessory for any kind of dedicated makeup remover whether you’re using an oil based remover or a water based one. The small size makes gently removing eye makeup easy. They’re economical, convenient and perfect for touchups at any time of the day or evening. Pop a couple in your handbag and you’re set for most makeup emergencies or running repairs.
