There’s so much to love about summer, and updating your makeup look with some new colors in the mix is fast, AND easy — as long as you have the right tools! They truly can make a world of difference in perfectly mixing, distributing, and blending your favorite makeup products! I’ve used five AWESOME brushes from EcoTools, listed above in the order of use, to create the ultimate subtle summer glow makeup look. Read along for my step-by-step guide, which will surely answer any questions you may have had about layering blush and bronzer, and how to use a kabuki and stippling brush!
Step 1: Take a lightweight tinted moisturizer, foundation, CC or BB Cream (I’m using a CC cream here); just make sure it has SPF in it to protect your precious assets! I like to apply the product to my hand and then dab the EcoTools Stippling Brush into it, to insure I don’t pick up too much product.
Apply the product on the Stippling Blush in a circular motion, dabbing on concealer where needed, and blending it together with your base layer via the brush.
Step 2: Now it’s bronzer time! Grab that super soft, EcoTools Angled Kabuki Brush, and lightly swirl it in your bronzer.
It’s important to start out with just a swipe of product on the brush, and gradually dip back into your bronzer and build up to the amount of product that best suits you.
The goal is to apply bronzer where the light/sun would naturally hit you, so lightly apply to temples and along the hairline, cheekbones,and with what’s left over, a light all-over swipe on your neck will do.
Keep the fattest part of the brush facing up and outward from your face for control, precision, and a natural, softly-angled application.
Step 3: Pick a summer-worthy blush shade — a brighter pink, peach, or coral (my favorite!), to lighten and brighten up your summer time makeup look.
