5) iBeauty, Skin Brush 21 (full size)
We all have seen those beauty experts working on their makeup on an Instagram video using that brush and wondered how easier your life would get with this, well you were certainly correct. This is the perfect brush to use while blending and airbrushing in your foundation needs.
How to use: Apply a small amount of cream or liquid primer/foundation/concealer to the back of your hand, then dab repeatedly to ‘load’ the brush before using broad strokes to apply and blend the make up over your face and neck.
6) Huda Beauty, Samantha #7 (full size)
Personally we are not a big fan of fake lashes until Samantha came along. One of the most light-weighted lashes in the world and specifically Samantha being of the best sellers of Huda Beauty.
How to use; Since the glue is sold separately, we highly recommend to buy the black lash glue which would give an illusion of you wearing a light liner if you do not. The lashes are full sized, so you can measure them accordingly and then cut according to your needs.
7) Yu Ling Rollers, Jade Eye Roller (Small)
First expression; “Awwww” its super tiny and great for traveling. Yu Ling’s hand-carved jade works like a charm to reduce the puffiness in your eyes and curing those dark circles around your eyes. We highly recommend storing this in the fridge to give it a good cool before use.
How to use: Gently roll the Jade Face Roller clockwise, around the eye socket, from the lower, inner edge towards the tear duct and place the roller vertically into the inner corner of the eye, using gentle rocking motion. Press lightly to encourage lymph drainage in the eye zone, ease blocked sinuses and reduce puffiness.
