This is a post I’ve been wanting to write for a while. I’m not afraid to admit I wear makeup on the daily. Clearly I’m not wearing eyeshadow, lip color or contouring my face, but I am wearing a full face. My face is full of acne scars that become enflamed easily. I couldn’t drink or sit in the sun without my scars turning bright red. It just did not make me feel comfortable. So I sought to rectify the situation. That’s when I started to beat my face on the daily. And here’s how I do it…
Before I do anything, I moisturize my face. For two reasons: it keeps your skin looking young and fresh and it helps settle the makeup and keep it lasting long all day. I use the BrushCraft Oval 3 to spread my favorite moisturizer, Lab Series Matte Renewal Lotion. My skin is SUPER sensitive so I need to use this tool to spread across my face. If I use my hands (even after watching them) my skin breaks out. I want to avoid breakouts as much as possible.
Now, it’s time to start applying the makeup! I only use one liquid makeup across my face. I’m just looking to cover up the blemishes and scars so one product is all I need. I use Clinque’s Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup and apply it across my face in soft circular motions with the BrushCraft Oval 6. It gives a great even coverage without having to pat your face. Just smooth motions get the job done. Plus, the makeup has acne mediation so it’s covering and treating at the same time!
After my face is evenly covered, I use the BrushCraft Circle 1R to conceal any acne blemish that is raised up on the skin. The smaller surface allows me to finely cover that pimple that just won’t go away.
This year, my beard started to disappear. I thought it was because I played with it too often that I was causing the hair to fall out. It turns out that I had alopecia (occurs when the immune system attacks hair follicles, and may be brought on by severe stress #2106). Now I have big bald spots around my beard. I love my beard but the spots are alarming. So, I decided to color in my beard. I use the BrushCraft Linear 1 to apply the Nyx Eyebrow Powder to blend in the color.
And Voila! You have this face thanks to the amazing products and most importantly, BrushCraft for making me comfortable in my skin every single day.
I’m intrigued by the design of the BrushCraft brushes. They are both smart and cool! The handle and fiber bundle orientation are more natural and ergonomic than a conventional brush. BrushCraft Brushes use a man-made fibre (called NuFibre) that feels like animal hair but it’s not at animal hair at all.
