I spent the weekend holding a workshop on how to apply makeup to ladies who want to achieve a more polished and made up ( natural look ) for the office. I had so much fun, and of course, I had much more fun introducing to them the concept of mineral makeup. I think I need to plan a mineral makeup workshop soon. I’m getting excited! I just love, love, love teaching. Nothing gratifies me more than imparting knowledge and spreading the mineral makeup love!
Going back to topic, I was praising my dual fibre brush during the entire time being of the workshop because it does not only work wonders for liquid foundation, it’s also a miracle worker for mineral makeup. The Dual Fibre brush, is well, dual fibre because it is made up of animal hair ( in this case, pony ) and synthetic hair. It is miraculous in the sense that it picks up just about the right amount of product that you don’t need to apply too much pressure – just lightly apply on the area, and it’d glide in like an airbrushed finish product. Amazing.
With regards to mineral makeup, the Dual Fibre Brush is absolutely perfect for finishing powder, and blush. The usual mineral blush is very pigmented and a bit tricky to apply – apply too much and you’ll end up with a sunburned face, and the dual fibre brush does its magic here by picking the right amount of product, as it is tapped, and as you very lightly sweep product on your cheeks, it’s almost magic, unnoticeable, that a faint , and very natural flush suddenly develops, and ends up with very pretty, refreshing cheeks!
With the finishing powder, only little product is needed to be applied on top of everything, because when you apply too much, specially if the mineral finishing powder has kaolin clay in it, it might risk of getting to look cakey and like a dry well. The Dual Fibre Brush just about applies the sheerest of layers of finishing powder on the face as face is luminous and all set!
To sum up, I’m all praises for the dual fibre brush. Seriously the best invention ever. Hahaha!
