The MAC 168 Brush.
I've had this brush for quite some time now, and I bought it to use for contouring.
It is made from pure goat hair and it is the softest, loveliest brush ever.
I love to use it, as I said, to contour. Sometimes I use it for blusher too and highlight, I love how it applies and picks up just enough colour.
.. Anyway, where am I going with this?
A few days ago I was on a make-up forum where someone mentions how then loves the 168 to apply their foundation, and I was like 'WHAT!' ..
Then, a couple of days ago I saw a video from Leesha/xSparkage, demonstrating how she used it to apply her studio sculpt.
.. Sooo yesterday when I was doing my make-up I got out the 168 and tried to put my foundation with it. I dotted the foundation onto my face and blended it out with the brush.
One word......... Amazing!
It went on so smoothly! I literally swirled the brush over my face so softly and it gave me such a nice look, I was so pleased, The application looked smooth and almost flawless.
I then used the same brush to apply my powder, blush and highlight.
Let this be a lesson, you your brushes and makeup for whatever you like, you are not limited to what you use each thing for... Have fun and Experiment. :)
*This brush is around about £16 in MAC stores or on their Website.*
