My first MAC brush.
How is this possible, you ask? I guess I just never got around to it. Yeah, there's no excuse, I'm a bad beauty blogger =) hopefully this first one will be enough to make up for the lack of MAC tools in my life.
First in my collection?
The 187 Duo Fibre Stippling brush. Let's have a moment of reverence.
Okay, I'm done. It's a goat/synthetic brush and the site says it's used for powder application, but based on what the beauty girls have been saying, I'm using it to apply liquid foundation. It's a little bigger than I expected on my face, but I really can't imagine switching to something smaller like the 188 and taking that much more time to cover my entire face. Maybe one day, when I have all the time in the world?
I'm still playing with it and trying to figure out how to best use it. So far, I'm pouring out the liquid on the back of my hand, picking it up with the brush and dotting it on my face. Buffing it out is the awkward part for me - I feel like I'm pressing too hard maybe? Let me know if you do it differently.
The finish is pretty air-brush-y as the reviews have been saying, and I do feel like my foundation looks more like my normal skin. I'll post a look later using this brush and you can tell me if it looks better/worse!
