These Awesome Brushes Make Contouring Easy

Like most lazy beauty lovers, I have a bad habit of applying eye shadow with my fingertips. But after years of this amateur routine, I’m ready to try a more sophisticated technique. There’s a reason why pro makeup artists use an arsenal of brushes: Unlike your fingers, brushes allow for precise application and easy blending. Plus, less shadow gets wasted in the transfer between the palette and your lids. I just picked up two Beauty Is Life brushes that simplify the art of eye shadow contouring. Use the rounded Standard Eyeshadow Brush to sweep a neutral base color all over your lids. Next, dip the tapered Special Eyeshadow Brush into a darker shadow and blend the shade into the crease of each lid. Your eyes will instantly look bigger and brighter — really.
