Reach for those thinking caps, ladies, because Alice needs our help!
At home I apply MAC Blot [MAC Blot Pressed Powder] with the 188 Small Duo Fibre Brush, but I was wondering if there’s a way to bring the brush along without having to buy a brush roll. Is it okay to use the powder puff that comes with the compact? I’ve heard that’s very unsanitary.
To borrow a line from Mariah (love ya, Mimi!), I can’t live, if living is without my MAC Blot Pressed Powder.
My compact is like a Hollywood starlet’s dog — It goes everywhere with me.
When I head out of the house, though, I’ll use it with a retractable drugstore brush like the EcoTools Recycled Retractable Kabuki Brush ($10).
It’s light, portable and delivers a natural veil of powder on the skin (perfect for touch-ups).
And it’s way cheaper than a $45 MAC Brush Roll, which means not having to stress as much about potentially losing it.
And I think powder puffs are fine if you’re conscientious about regularly cleaning them. I’ll thoroughly hand wash mine every few days with shampoo to remove any built up oil or powder, and then I’ll let it air dry on a clean surface.
Keep in mind that applying powder with a puff can result in heavier coverage, so be mindful of that when you’re doing touch-ups between classes.
Ladies, what do you use to apply powder when you’re out and about?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I can’t believe it, but I spaced out and forgot about last night’s premier of America’s Best Dance Crew Season 4!
I feel slightly off without at least one reality dance show in my life, like I’m wearing my underwear backwards or something.
I blame it on Maneater, aka the LONGEST LIFETIME MOVIE, EVER! I got caught up watching it last night and lost track of time.
Hate it when that happens…
