Essential Brushes

When clients and friends let me peek in their makeup bags to see what they use, I am always shocked by the lack of brushes I find! I firmly believe that brushes are an essential part of applying makeup, whether it be professionally or personally. You need a variety of brushes in your kit to help you get the most out of your makeup. The texture, density, and shape of each brush helps you perform different applications of product. You need some that will deposit more product to the skin and some that will apply less. I found that I had a LOT to say about this topic, so I created a video for you that will walk you through some of my must-have brushes as I use them to apply my makeup. I know this video is longer than normal but I promise it's very informative! Hope you enjoy watching and feel inspired to expand your brush collection! xo KL
