Brush Up: Laura Geller’s Favorite Beauty Tools
Earlier this week we chatted with beauty wiz Laura Geller on the best makeup brushes to use for your daily beauty routine. Geller knows a thing or two about beauty, in 1993 she opened Laura Geller Makeup Studios on the Upper East Side with one mission: to each women the how-to of cosmetics and hands-on techniques to master it. Now, after years of creating fantastic products (we love her Baked Collection), the beauty wiz has teamed up with QVC. We asked Laura for her absolute favorite brushes in her arsenal. Ready to update your brush collection and invest in some quality tools? Check out Laura’s recommendations:
Retractable Kabuki Brush, $29
My Retractable Kabuki Brush is the perfect complexion powder blush! Designed specifically for my Baked products, this brush picks up just the right amount of powder with its synthetic fibers. You can use this multi-purpose brush for all over face powders, blushes, and even bronzer! And the retractable component makes it an easy brush for on-the-go use.
How to Use: Dip the brush into your powder and lightly tap it to remove excess. Dust powder all over your face.
TIP: Pick up powder with brush and leave on. Close component and place cap on to hold in powder. You’ll have the perfect amount of powder for touch ups on the go!
Double-Ended Blush & Highlighter Applicator, $25
My Double-Ended Blush & Highlighter Applicator Brush makes product application goof-proof! This two-in-one brush is the perfect tool to leave skin radiant and glowing with easy, flawless application of both blush and highlighter.
How to Use: The angled brush end can be used to sweep make-up over face and cheek products. The paddle sponge end allows for more controlled application and can be used use to highlight cheekbones, and other areas where the sun naturally hits the face: forehead, nose and chin.
Double-Ended Shadow/Liner Brush, $15
I love my Double-Ended Shadow/Liner Brush because it’s all you need to create almost any eye look! The rounded brush glides shadow over the lid while the skinny brush is perfect for lining, wet or dry. And it’s a great tool for on-the-go application too.
How to Use: Use the rounded brush end to smooth eye color over lid. Apply liner either wet or dry with the skinny end of the brush.
