Why does my foundation brush leave streaks?
If they’re applied incorrectly and with the wrong brushes, however, they can leave behind unflattering brush stroke streaks. And believe us, no one wants to be walking around with bristle imprints all over their cheeks, eyes or face.
Does concealer go on before or after foundation?
“I only recommend using concealer before foundation when you have a lot of blemishes to cover and you need to use tons of thick, correcting concealer for coverage,” Quynh tells us. “Then you can lightly stipple or dab foundation on top of the concealer for extra coverage and blending.”
How do I know if my makeup brushes are good quality?
There’s one simple test to find a durable and high-quality brush: Rub it against your skin. The bristles should feel soft, not rough or scratchy. To test the strength of the bristles, run the brush against your hand to see if any fibers fall out. If they do, don’t buy it.
Do makeup artists use the same brushes?
Most artists will carry a stainless steel, plastic, or disposable surface from which to work. Disposable wands and fan brushes are used instead, with no double-dipping. PENCILS: Eye and lip pencils are sharpened between clients and wiped down with alcohol.
