What’s in my Make-up Bag? : Morphe Brushes

A good make-up brush is just as important as the quality of make-up you’re using to create the perfect blended look. I noticed my shadows were looking a bit muddy not because of the make-up but because of the brushes I was using to apply. I’ve heard amazing things about Sigma and Morphe Brushes. I decided to order a Morphe Brush Set to give me a little bit of everything to try out. I picked a natural hair set and it has made the biggest difference especially with my shadows. The brushes I was using before were synthetic and very flimsy. Morphe’s brushes are soft enough to blend and firm enough to keep my colors separated and clean. They’re high quality especially for how inexpensive they are and super cute! The set came with a travel snap case which has been great for traveling and keeping them clean! I was a little worried that the bristles were all white, but they’ve cleaned up easily and look brand new after washing!

The set I ordered was the 10 Piece Deluxe Set with Ostrich Skin Snap Case and below is a list of the brushes it included.

Flat Bronzer Brush 6 1/2″
Angle Blush Brush 7 1/4″
Soft Fan Brush 6 3/4″
Eye Shadow Fluff Brush 6 1/2″
Precision Eye Shadow Brush 6 1/2″
Blending Brush 6 1/2″
Crease Blender Brush 6 1/2″
Smudge Brush 6″
Crease Brush 6″
Bullet Crease Brush 5 1/2″

The Eye Shadow Fluff Brush, Precision Eye Shadow Brush, blending brush, crease blender brush, and crease brush have been my favorite and most used for sure but all are amazing!

Dermaplaning at Home

Dermaplaning is something I’ve been doing to my skin for about a year now (I actually didn’t know it had this name until I’ve seen it all over recently). Basically it’s exfoliating your face using a razor. Typically this is known to be done by a professional with a 10-guage scalpel, but I’ve been using this at home version that works perfect for a fraction of what it would cost to have it done. I know this sounds scary, but I promise it’s not. I use the tinkle face razors from Amazon (link below). It’s actually pretty hard to cut yourself with these razors because you shave it on an angle. I start by washing everything off my face and applying a good layer of face-lotion or of a suitable face oil (I’m sure coconut oil would work as well). I start with my cheeks shaving downward at an 45 degree angle. I shave my entire face removing all the dead skin cells and peach fuzz from my face. It makes my face not only feel softer and look better on it’s own, but it makes my make-up glide on smoother so your make up doesn’t look cakey. Me and my sister jokingly call it shaving your kitty because you get these clumps of white hair while shaving. It doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t make your hair grow back darker or thicker or quicker. Afterward your skin feel so soft it almost tingles (like after you shave your legs). If you’re still scared I’ve linked in a video from how I learned how to do this face shaving! Order your razors and get to shaving those kitties!
