If you have ever walked through a Sephora, do your eyes start spinning in awe at all the makeup brushes, tweezers, sponges and accessories that you see in front of you?
Does going to CVS for a prescription suddenly turn into a $50 extravaganza and your medication costs a mere $5? I will admit it-YES! YES! YES! YES!
All the shapes and sizes, the points and the slants, sable or goat hair-the choices are amazing AND completely overwhelming. At last count, I believe I own over 300 makeup brushes, 10 pairs of tweezers and I can't even count the endless accessories.
The saddest part of all?
I tend to use the same 10 makeup brushes and possibly 2 pairs of tweezers on a regular basis. The Oh-So-Cute accessories take way to much time to even bother with.
How did this happen? I hate to spend $20 on a good dinner, I pack my lunch and without a mother who will buy me my DVD's, my DVD player would be collecting a lot of dust.
Yet somehow I managed to spend a good mortgage payment on goods that may never see the light of day again.
My goal is to see that this never happens to another woman!
Women will often ask me if brushes are necessary to a good makeup application and I will always say yes because having the right brushes can change a look from harsh to beautiful without a lot of effort. When helping clients select the right brushes, I ask a lot of questions to find out what brushes will be of the most use and how much time they want to spend on their makeup.
I find that the majority of women want to spend no more than ten to fifteen minutes getting ready so I have narrowed down the brushes, tweezers and accessories to 8 pieces.
