Not really known for her personal makeup choices or fashion styling, for some reason, it’s easy to picture Rashida Jones, star of the new show TBS Show Angie Tribeca saying, “you use these makeup brushes [from Japonesque, It Cosmetics and Soho Naturals] to apply what?”
Not one to be outdone by the masses, Japonesque has a line of makeup brushes that take their spot front and center – introducing Japonesque Color Collection Eyeshadow Brush ($16, ulta.com and other retailers). Described as “Artisan beauty meets precision craftsmanship,” this fashion-forward Eye Shadow Brush is designed with a swirl of blue pigments so it will never get lost among the sea of brushes with black handles.
- Product Suggestion: Made with natural fibers, use this brush to highlight, blend and to apply loose and pressed eye shadows like the NEW L’Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Quad – Emerald Conquest ($7.95, lorealparisusa.com) – a crease-resistant compact of complementary colors that can either be worn alone or combined – creating complex, beautiful looks. 20 shades in all.
Face & Body Bronzer
Lookin’ like a piece of art, rather than a makeup brush, It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Mega Fan Brush ($48, qvc.com) is pure heaven. Consider this your go-to for achieving a flawless, luxurious bronzer application to both your face and body.
- Product Suggestion: So soft to the touch, we suggest you use this makeup brush with Boots No7 Perfectly Bronzed Mosaic Bronzer ($11.99, us.boots.com) – a mosaic-style bronzer that allows you to customize your glow any season of the year and works for all skin tones. Just dip the brush and apply product where the sun naturally hits your face on the apples of your cheeks, across your forehead and down the center of your nose.
One part cute, two parts really useful, the Soho Naturals Kabuki Brush/Retractable Kabuki ($12.99, TJMAXX stores, Amazon.com)
A loose powder, such as Mehron Celebre Pro-HD Loose Mineral Powder ($14.99, mehron.com) that sets your makeup to perfection – keeping it true to color, should be applied with Soho Naturals Kabuki Brush/Retractable Kabuki ($12.99, TJMAXX stores, Amazon.com) – a densely packed brush that picks up even more product than typical face brushes providing you with medium to full coverage. this brush type can also be used to apply mineral makeup, loose or pressed powder, and/or bronzer.
