I remember first using a make up brush to apply make up and I couldn't believe the results that I got from using a brush , was I shocked , yes did I think I would ever go back to using my finger, no but some recent beauty discoveries have make me believe that maybe our humble fingers could apply some make up better than your much loved brushes. Using a brush does give amazing flawless results especially for even application and other important factors but it can be time consuming and whilst good things take time simple applications can be applied with just using our fingers.
Eyeshadow sticks have become a craze and every beauty brand has their own version of this wonder product and whilst we all try to blend the product with a brush the waxy trait of the shadow stick doesn't allow it causing the only method that works is the light blending of your finger. Apply the Rimmel London Scandaleyes shadow stick straight from the bullet onto the lid and using your ring finger blend the shadow until you reach the crease creating an easy and effective smokey eye without brush or tool.
Cream products work their best when applied using a warm finger that can melt and blend the product into the face. I use the cream Bourjois cream blusher in 03 by warming the product with my fingers using a simple swirling motion then dabbing off the excess onto the back of my hand and apply to the apples of the cheeks for a natural flushed glow.
A lip stain can be the perfect way to wear lipstick without having to compromise with food or worrying about it getting all over your teeth. Using your fingers you can create a simple lip tint that lasts hours and can be applied / pulled of easier than a full blown bold lip. Simply use your finger to transfer the colour ( Topshop's lipstick in depth) from the bullet to your finger and using dabbing motions apply evenly to your lips leaving a wash of colour to your pout!
Do your fingers come in handy with your make up routine ?
