Shapeshift Your Makeup Bag
This small paddle-style brush may look unassuming, but it’s capable of transforming your makeup routine, especially when it comes to glam looks! The 5-Star BMX-225 Conceal brush can be used to conceal blemishes, color correct small areas, prime the lids, apply cream or glitter shadow, and cut the crease or create a halo. Don’t leave this multitasking pro at home!
You can conceal in two ways using a paddle-shaped brush like this one. If you’re using a liquid concealer, first dot it on the areas you want to cover. Then, lightly blend the edges of the dots into the skin, being careful not to overblend the areas that need more coverage. If you’re using a cream concealer, load a clean brush with product and then “paint” in small, light strokes over the areas that need coverage.
After priming the lids with a glitter-friendly primer (which you can also apply using this brush), lightly mist the fibers of the Conceal brush with water and pat into loose glitter. Pat the glitter onto your eyelid, doing so gently to prevent excess fallout. Repeat this process in layers to achieve a really impactful look.
This trendy look isn’t as challenging as it seems! First, blend a shadow over the lid and up into the crease. This will form your “background.” Then, use the Conceal brush loaded with concealer and go right over the top of the shadow on your eyelid only, leaving the background shadow in the crease. Use as much concealer as needed to cover up the background shadow and let it dry down. Finally, go in with your “foreground” shadow (or glitter!) on top of the concealer, being careful not to blend with the shadow in the crease.
