Back to School : Beauty 101 : Tools of the Trade

Back to School

The next few mini-posts are going to be to all the wonderful ladies who are getting ready for the new school year.

Going back to school usually means you will be spending time at the department stores shopping for supplies, stocking up on pencils, notebooks and paper..... buying new clothes, shoes and hair accessories.

Although you may have all the school essentials taken care of, today I want to help you refill your beauty supply kit with a few must have essentials that are sure to help you move forward onto the fall season.

The most important part of your beauty supply kit are going to be your key makeup tools. There are five "tools of the trade" you are going to need:

Back to School Beauty 101 - Tools of the Trade

1. Foundation Brush or Beauty Blender - these are key for getting flawless coverage. Tip: when you use a foundation brush, swirl the product in circles to avoid streaks.

2. Kabuki Brush - this is perfect for applying blush, bronzer, or powder.

3. Fan Brush - using a fan brush is ideal for applying a tiny bit of highlighter to the tops of your cheeks.

4. Eyelash Curler - look for a curler that has a flat "bite" so you can get as close to the lash line as possible. Crimp lashes three times: at roots, mid-eyelash and tips.

5. Eye-shadow Brush - try to look for a full brush with close-set brushes as this will help you apply color all over the lid. A second brush you will need for eye-shadow is a blending brush, one that is preferably domes shape.
