A mini pony = awesomeness.
A mini pony brush = even more awesomeness!
Say howdy to Shu Uemura’s Portable Natural Brush 14 ($30) — a friend to dark circles everywhere.
I spend a lot of time not sleeping. It’s one of my hobbies… not sleeping. Consequently, I rely on under-eye concealer to hide my dark circles, and to set it I’ll use a little bit of powder and Shu’s Natural Brush 14.
The smallish, fluffy brush head (made with pony hair) fits perfectly into the nook under my eyes. It’s one of the softest brushes in my arsenal and feels like a kiss from Tabs on my delicate skin. Just one swipe applies a sheer veil of powder — natural, not heavy or cakey at all.
At $30 it’s not a cheap tool, but ladies who take makeup seriously could consider it an investment.
Why? Because this pony multitasks!
I like to layer blushes. With Natural 14, I can add a pop of bright blush on top of a muted shade.
It even doubles as a cheek highlighter brush (to avoid the dreaded disco shimmer), where I’ll use it to precisely apply highlighter on my upper cheeks bones.
But wait, there’s more! I can also use it to apply powder in tight spaces around my nose and lips.
used to still dream of coming home to my very own pony one day… At least this one’s relatively affordable, and you don’t have to worry about feeding it, haaaaay! Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
I’m almost too ashamed to admit this, but I spent my entire lunch break obsessing over Beyonce’s big hair at the MTV Music Video Awards.
The ‘do is speaking to my soul! Is it my late-’80s inner teen diva begging to come out and play?
If big hair ever makes a full-fledged comeback, how big would you go? I think I’d go pretty big.
