The Magic Of The Fluffy Brush

For some reason writing out this post title made me think of "Puff The Magic Dragon", so perhaps I will call my brush, Fluff the Magic Dragon (Brush)!

I'm a huge fan of the Pixiwoo sisters and they nearly always blend in concealer with a brush in lieu of their fingers. I always thought it was partially for the fact that as they are makeup artists, when applying makeup on other people, brushes are preferred. I have almost always applied concealer with my fingers and since my skin has been reactive lately, I've been using thicker, more pigmented cream concealers instead of easier to spread liquid ones. Last night, I washed the brushes I used for my Inara look and this morning I had the idea of using the big fluffy crease one to blend in my concealer.


It was awesome. It kept the medium-heavy coverage, but it all blended in smoothly, no patchiness, it was amazing!

And no, I didn't use a MAC 224 (their preferred one) or even the Illamasqua which is synthetic but equally as pricey, no I used the Mark blending brush. Which is honestly a bit too poofy (or fluffy) or puffy(?) for blending crease work, but it is absolutely perfect for concealer. I used it on my blemishes and under my eyes and it didn't go cakey or patchy or anything. It was amazing.

And the best part? The price, of course. $6 - you read that right. $6!

The angels sing, everyone joins in in great exultation! Ahhh!

I might get that brush! I made an order with a local avon lady recently but I haven't heard from her, might have to switch sellers. I love the pixiwoo sisters too! They mention a product and I go out and buy it. It's terrible really.

@PCS: It's really great for this purpose (you can always order online, ya know?)! I am the same way with the Pixiwoo sisters! Good thing we can't get a hold of half the things they use in the states or else I'd be much poorer!

Wow that's a great tip! I've never heard of blending concealer with a fluffy brush before. We don't have Mark over here but I do have an Illamasqua brush that would work!
