2012 Favourites: Tools

Could not for the life of me get good lighting today, I apologize!

Sigma Large Powder F30 Brush - This is the brush I use to apply my powder and sometimes bronzer all over. The three brushes I talk about in this post are the ones I really couldn't be without as I literally take them everywhere! It apply powder really quickly and flawlessly and it's so soft without shredding.

MAC 187 Brush - This is my Blush brush of choice. I've used this brush for a while after receiving it in a set from the Glitter & Ice collection and haven't put it down since. Other brushes just don't apply my blush as perfectly as this does, it's not so dense it applies too much at once but really helps me to apply colour sheerly and build it up.

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush - Despite the majority of people favouring the Buffing brush to apply foundation, I really love the precision and finish this brush offers. I find it gives me a flawless finish it gives as well as the density of it and all the RT brushes are so easy to clean which is an added bonus!

Real Techniques Setting Brush - This brush is amazing for applying concealer under the eyes and setting it with powder. It's the perfect size and so soft it doesn't drag or pull the skin under my eyes when applying product. A total must have

Bourjois Tweezers - Although a lot of people favour Tweezerman's offering, I find these do an amazing job for a fraction of the price. I'll always repurchase these as they've lasted me ages and aren't too expensive

Tweezerman Eyelash Curlers - Something I do own from Tweezerman are their eyelash curlers. After owing them from other brands such as No7, I decided the affordable ones weren't quite cutting it but wasn't quite ready to splash out on Shu Uemura ones so these are a great alternative. They work brilliantly and are now a staple in my collection

I'll be doing these posts every couple of days for the start of January and I'm planning on making it an 7 post series so hope you enjoy! x
