Great makeup isn’t just about having the right products, it’s about how you apply it, too. That doesn’t always mean brushes (hands often work great, too!), but having a few excellent brushes in your kit will certainly make things easier. Try a few sizes and shapes and find what works well for you, but invest in brushes by a great brand and look after your tools well, and you’ll have the best chance of looking and feeling your best.

The best tools are often created by makeup artists who know exactly how to apply makeup to the highest standards. Pásame tools are a new line of high quality brushes created by Alaina, who I used to work with, so I can attest to her talent! Her line is designed to be easy to use, with a collection of three brushes aimed to be used as a simple step by step, to make makeup artistry accessible to all. They’re amazing brushes and super easy to use – so huge congratulations to Alaina!
