Two Brush Musts from the Everyday Minerals Brushes Vegan Brush Collection

 

Brushes are kind of everything in makeup. While we often use our fingers to blend tinted moisturizer and cream blush or dab cream eyeshadow on with our fingers, we love our tools. Our combined collection of brushes is admittedly ridiculous. What can we say? The thrill of finding that perfect blush to contour or achieve the perfect smoky eye is exciting. In this case, the thrill is not in the chase, but the find. We switch up our products often, but the brushes are the constant. New to my brush family are some very exciting, and interestingly shaped, brushes from Everyday Minerals. The best part? They range in price from 7.99 to $22.99, so quality at a price that doesn’t make you cringe. Regardless of my passion for brushes, it was painful to shell out the dough for the NARS Yachiyo.

There’s two in particular that WOWed me and changed my routine for the better. They’re not just in the brush roll —- they live in my makeup kit! The ITAHAKE Brush is everything for contouring (and BONUS: it’s like a budget-friendly version of the NARS Ita brush!) and the Eye Kabuki Brush that I actually use for buffing concealer under the eye and the face. You may see a brush like the ITAHAKE and think how will that work? I prefer it for contouring with bronzer under the cheekbone and around the hairline. It places it in just the right spots and it blends and buffs well, too. The Eye Kabuki is originally intended for applying light color all over the lid, but it’s a champ at airbrushing concealer. Eye Kabuki + Tarte Maracuja Concealer = the secret to looking awake and refreshed.

Both of these brushes will only set you back about $20 (for both), and it is well worth it!

Green with Envy: Everyday Minerals Mint Color Corrector

Like any person with Rosacea that has been unable to find anything to cure it (believe me I have tried), I am always on the hunt for an effective color correcting product but in my opinion most fall more than short, they either just don’t correct or leave a weird texture under your makeup, don’t blend etc. It’s sad how many green creams, lotions and potions fill my makeup drawers and get no use.

Everyday Minerals Mint Color Corrector I personally have switched to mineral powder foundation because I find it kinder to my rosacea than liquid but even then still need something to cut the red. So I had finally about given up when I tried an awesome product from Everyday Minerals called Mint Color Corrector. Hallelujah, the makeup gods had finally answered my prayers… I know your reading this online but if I could make the computer squeal with giddiness about this product I would. This powder applied with a light hand definitely cancels out the red and leaves a very nice base for your mineral foundation to be applied on top of. No weird texture or inability to blend in here. My rosacea now looks not existent. This product is definitely now in my top 5 list of my must have products.

Oh!  I almost forgot to mention that the price is as amazing as the powder. Definitely worth taking a serious peak at the site.
