My new favorite makeup tool


For many of us, makeup has become a necessity. The beauty arena encompasses many categories, from the products you purchase, to the tools to aid basic application.

When I first started wearing makeup, I was the “finger girl.” I applied everything with my fingers: eye shadow, blush, concealer- you name it. As the years passed by, I stated incorporating makeup brushes. Today, we have so many tools to aid application, from makeup sponges, silicone beauty blenders, and even oval brushes.

I have gradually started using every single one of these tools (it takes me a while to make the decision as I’m very conscious with my money and what I really need vs just a fad). Oval makeup brushes have been out for a little while; I never thought much of them, but lately, I decided to give them a try.

I got a hold of Nora’s Brushes oval brush set, and I’m literary OBSESSED.

To start off, I love how COMPLETE this set is. At first, I thought I would be receiving a bunch of round brushes. But upon inspecting these brushes, I was able to appreciate the differences in shape and sizes. Some of the brushes are very round, others are oval, and others are elongated, allowing for a multitude of application strategies. I could say that this set could easily help you apply concealer, foundation, contouring, and even eye shadow, without the need of a bunch of different tools.

Did I mention that these are so amazingly smooth!? These feel so, so, so great that upon trying them, the first thing that I thought of was my comfy bed (I know it sounds insane, but it was seriously that good smooth). What I loved about them, is that even though they were greatly smooth, the brushes were very sturdy, allowing for a fantastic application of makeup. Below, I included some of my favorite brushes in the set:

What I love about these smaller brushes is that there are great to accomplish a very natural contouring and concealer application. I have hollowed under-eyes, and sometimes a beauty blender misses some of the corners when applying concealer; but thankfully, the brush above was great for that!

The quality is also superb. It is made out of synthetic hairs; however, the hairs are as good as natural ones. The holder is shaped strategically to rest your fingers, and it is completely shred protected.

This is by far one of my favorite makeup tools, and I look forward to keep using these.
