Re: Must have brushes

Mine are MAC, and not what people usually expect...

#190 (primer, foundation), #188 (powder, blush, bronzer, contour, highlight), #239 (lid color, crease, highlight), #217 (crease, blending), #219 (crease, tear duct, lower lashline)

I'd love to throw more face brushes into the mix, because I own and regularly use the the #190, #188, #187, #168, & #116.

Re: Must have brushes

Lately i've been really loving my 138 brush. It a multipurpose powder brush - and it's incredibly soft. works amazing with contour/highlight/bronzer/etc

Re: Must have brushes

Face
129 -> good allrounder
188 -> best blush brush (very easy to handle)
165 -> best highlighter

Eyes
213 -> a simple brush with a good cut
217 -> best brush for soft looks
226 -> best brush for contours
214 -> great for defining/lining

Re: Must have brushes

MAC 180 theres no brush to me that can make foundation awesome but this one..I use to be all about the 187 but sheds way to much and this one surpasses it in my humble opinion.
MAC 138 sooo soft pricey but you can really use it for sooo much its so worth it!If you dont have one get one everyone!
MAC 109 is multipurpose also I love it!
MAC 222 super crease brush
I heard fab comments about MAC 226 brush(mine is on the way yay)

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

UDPP, but I prefer Too Faced Shadow Insurance's packaging. Much more convenient.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I use ArtDeco eyeshadow base and love it.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

UD PP is the only shadow primer that I have but I sometimes use shadesticks if the colors that I'm working with will blend well with the few shadesticks that I have. But UD PP is great! I had trouble with creasing before I bought it and I don't have that problem anymore.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

elizabeth arden eye-fix primer. i have used it for about 15 years and it has never let me down - i've tried some other primers (udpp, mac paintpot, mac paint, lancome primers...) but this one is yet to be beaten in terms of keeping my eyeshadow from creasing!

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I use to use Prime & prep, then went to UDPP and now I'm back to using paint pots and mixing medium if needed. My foundation is Kevyn Aucoin & Giorgio Armani and usually those are enough. The Prep & prime & UDPP work good but made my eyes itch and break out. I also really love smashbox's photo finish foundation primer, it makes my face so soft!! For the eyes I'm going back to the good old faithful MAC paintpots...

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

Too Faced Shadow Insurance is fantastic.

My eyelids get quite oily and no other eye primer has been able to stop creasing after a few hours except this brand.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

UDPP! I have to say that since I have started using this for my models, soon to get some for myself, I notice that no matter what e/s I put on them it pops!...sometimes more than I intended it too and a little bit truly goes a long way. I am on photoshoot #25 and I swear there is still ALOT more left in the bottle

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

I haven't used any MAC primers for eyes... but I will add another brand to the list NOT to get! Smashbox dual primer kinda sucks (it is eyes on one side and a lip primer on the other). It's really dry and goes on flakey. So you have uneven flakes on before you even put your shadow on! At first, I kind of liked it b/c in the summer it kept my lids dry but the texture sucks. I had it forever and don't even like using it. I would NOT recommend this one.

As far as their face primer though, the Smashbox primer is pretty good. I had no problems with it and it always made my foundation last longer and go on smoother. However, that being said, it is just OKAY. Nothing special. I really like the Prep + Prime from MAC a lot better. (I use the one with the SPF50 in it- haven't tried the other one but heard good things about that too).

Oh, one more thing to add to my long post... while we are talking shadow primers... One I really like and have used for quite awhile is the Mary Kay "Creme to Powder" Eye Color in Vanilla. It goes on really smooth and leaves a subtle shimmer and is perfect under any shadow. Come to think of it, I have had this for WAY too long and should order a new one LOL.

Hope this helps

Hi...I ordered Fawntastic CCB and am waiting for it to come in, how well does it work for you? I wanted to try the CCB's since they look easier to apply then PP's. Also, how dark is that color compared to MACS swatch? My eye's are so sensitive that I can only wear pigments or good quality loose mineral brands ( I now have my own line Most of the time my foundation is the only base I wear, lol but on the days I really want my eyes to stand out & last then I use the PP's, Too faced, UDPP & now CCB's.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

Definitely Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Why?

Well, first of all, it does NOT crease my shadows.
And coming from an oily-skined, Asian small double eyelid-ed girl, that's pretty good.
Second, it makes shadows POP. The colour shows up much more vibrant.
And lastly, my shadows don't fade and don't budge. They stay put for the entire day, until I decided to take my makeup off.

And yes, the packaging is agonizing, but try to use as much of it as you can before cutting the tube open. When you begin to get that feeling like it's running out, take out that small plastic ring that's in it. That little small plastic ring is what squeezes down on the doe foot so that you don't get that much on the wand. However, if you take that out, you will be able to get so much more product.

Re: Favorite Eye shadow Primer

Definitely MAC Paintpots, although I can't get electrosky to work for me, but all the other paintpots work great!
