Foundation Brush

Ok ladies, using a foundation brush is not a compulsion. You can opt for a sponge or your fingers too, but do try this brush and see what suits you best. There are two kinds of foundation brushes: Buffing brush & Oval Brush. The buffing brush is dense, and can be pinched flat; best used for flawless and heavier coverage. The oval brush looks like a lollipop and is excellent for getting the most out of a full coverage liquid foundation.

Oval Brush

Buffing Brush

Powder/ Kabuki Brush

This short-handled, densely packed brush is our personal fave! An all-rounder brush, this one is ideal for everything, right from applying powder/mineral foundations to bronzer and blush—a keeper.

Concealer Brush

A small rounded brush or flat topped brush is just what you need for concealer application. Why? This helps make blending easier and lets you cover every area of your face, which includes inner eye corner, sides of your nose and covers blemishes too.

Blush Brush

How to recognize a blush brush? These tend to be either rounded or angled, and on the fluffier side—to pick up just the right amount of product. Gently sashay the bristles into powder blush and apply to the cheeks, brushing it towards your cheekbones. The plus point? You can always use this as a kabuki brush to apply bronzer.

All-over Eyeshadow Brush

Choose a brush slightly smaller than the width of your eyelid and one that is a wee bit fluffy to help blend different colours across the lids evenly. Use it in two different motions: the windscreen wiper sweep or circular motion technique.

Fan Brush

A big fan of the highlighter? This is the brush for you! In the shape of a fan, sweep the ends of the bristles across your cheekbones in an upwards motion and get that flawless, glowing skin!

Contour Brush

Ready to master your contour routine? Well, not without this brush! The slanted bristles of this brush make it easier to blend your contour powder neatly and precisely below your cheekbones.

Lip Liner Brush

This is such a life saver, especially when you want to remove pigment on your lips from direct usage of lipstick. Applying lipstick straight from the lipstick is fine, but use of a lip liner brush ensures ultra-definition.

Brow Brush/Dual Eyebrow Brush & Lash Comb

Always wondered how your favourite Bollywood stars on Instagram have brows to die for? The angled liner brush is the answer; it is a small, firm and densely packed—perfect #browsfordays. Find a brush with a spoolie at the end and you are sorted!

Mascara Brush

There are a variety of mascara brushes designed to perfect your lashes. From curling, to volume, separation and length, choose the one that suits your need. We suggest you pick the regular one like in the image below if you are not too sure what you are looking for.

Smudging Brush/Sponge Shadow Brush

Who isn’t a big fan of smoky eyes? Most of us love it! To perfect the smoky eye look, this brush is what you need; it has a rounded top which is perfect for smudging and blending different colours (eyeliner or eyeshadow) across the lower or top lash lines.

Sponge

Had to include this even though this isn’t a brush. The sponge is a must-have in your makeup kit as it is best used to apply any cream or liquid product. The beauty blender is fabulous when you have ample amount of time to do your makeup as it takes longer to blend compared to a brush, nonetheless it works wonders ladies.

Don’t have a set of makeup brushes yet? Well, now is the time to get yours; a new set of makeup products is not a bad idea either. Well, you are going to need it to make good use of your brushes. Check out our selection of makeup on our website.

7 Different Ways To Use Your Lipstick

Hey beauties, with the entire Covid-19 crises and the use of a mask made compulsory, you may/may not want to bid your lipsticks goodbye. Tough choice! Well if you do plan on getting rid of them, we suggest you don’t! Throwing it away would be wasteful really without knowing what else that bullet of colour could be used for other than your lips.

What if we tell you lipsticks can be used as other types of cosmetics and as a pen too (write a love note on mirrors or tissues in lipstick), moreover your lipsticks have always been the best friend you’ve had in your makeup kit all this while. You just have never appreciated them enough! #BGStars gear up to get all DIY with your lipsticks.  Here are different ways to use your lipsticks that have nothing to do with your lips.

Take A Look…

CREAM BLUSH

Don’t have a blush bar at hand, no problem. Get a hold of your lipstick instead—this is a #throwbackhack to swipe your finger over the lipstick and blend it on your cheeks in a circular motion. Bet your grandma used to do it to get that rosy cheek.

COLOURED EYESHADOW

Using your lipstick as an eyeshadow is the best and most effective trick ever. Why? Lipstick eyeshadow tends to last longer than the real deal and looks fabulous too!

UNDER-EYE CONCEALER

Red matte lipstick as a corrector is approved, so give it a go. Just when you are running out on your corrector, reach for your red lipstick and apply under and around your dark eye circles with a concealer brush. If need be, you can apply it on other dark spots and blemishes. Just remember to not apply too much of the lipstick because it might be difficult to cover up with concealer in the next step.

CONTOUR LIKE A PRO

#BGStars, contouring can be tricky with a contouring stick so if you are not too confident then go easy on this trick. Try it at home first, start from the center of your forehead, down the side of your face, through to just beneath the cheekbones but not past the edge of the eye, and then down the side of the bottom half of the face to the chin with a brown lipstick (or nude lipstick) that’s a couple shades darker than your skin tone. The key to nailing it is blending away well or this could turn into a disaster, not something any of us want. No harm in giving it a try.

MIX WITH OTHER LIPSTICKS

Yes, you read that right. This trick is amazing especially when you don’t want to spend too much money. Get the shade you’ve been dying to wear by simply mixing up a few lipstick shades in different textures if you wish. Try it out, now is the perfect time to experiment ladies. We suggest use a matte formula first with the help of a lip brush when you decide to combine different textures of lipsticks.

CREATE A LIP GLOSS

Looking to keep it subtle & add sheen on your lips and on a budget? Don’t buy another gloss. Make your lipstick shine with a dab of Vaseline or coconut oil.

A NOTE IN LIPSTICK? SURE! USE IT AS A PEN.

Lastly, your highly saturated red lipstick works great as a pen! Leave a note for your hubby/boyfriend on the mirror or tissue this #lockdown with the help of a lipstick! We think it’s pretty glamorous, yet romantic. Plus you anyway have enough lipsticks to waste to use it as a pen, don’t you? Was that a nod?

Don’t forget to check out Bollyglow’s exciting range of lipsticks on www.bollyglow.com. Incase you like any, go ahead buy them! Don’t worry, we will ship orders soon after the lockdown period is over.

Holi Beauty Hacks—Must Read!

Rang Barse #BGstars! Holi is here, and we hope this festival is a glamorous one for everyone out there. Holi parties are known for their glitz. And like every year, this year too you want to look your best. Have you’ll picked your clothes & decided what makeup? Most of you’ll might have already, but for those who haven’t we are here to help-simply throw on something white and as far as your makeup is concerned remember to keep it fun & peppy. You gotta’ match it with the festive, colourful mood. Get set & ready to rock your best self. Just a few simple hacks to keep in mind before you head out.

Here’s how you can up your glam quotient this Holi.

Let’s focus on three main features!

FACE

During Holi, there is a tendency your skin is prone to rashes & breakouts because of the harsh chemicals in the colours. To avoid this, just make sure to moisturize and apply a base that matches your skin tone. Use a hydrating primer & foundation like Bollyglow’s Prime Time CC Primer & Filmi Foundation in 7 shades to protect your skin from colour damage. Doing so will create a barrier between your skin and the harmful colours, preventing it from damage.

EYES

This Holi, experiment with colours for your eye makeup. Use attractive shades of green, purple, blue or any colour in contrast to your outfit, pick any bright hue that will reflect the spirit of the festival. If you like it simple, use an eye shadow in neutral tones or line your eyes with a basic black eyeliner. Colour yourself pretty this Holi-make use of a water resistant & smudge proof coloured eyeliner for that instant pop in your eyes. Try Bollyglow’s Idoleyez Precision Pen Eyeliner to create a dramatic wing or a simple stroke.

LIPS

Apply a lipstick that will make you stand out and prevent your lips from drying-glossy or shimmery, you pick. But first, don’t forget to moisturize! Use lipsticks in tones of red or fuchsia. Smear a shimmery lipstick on your lips to match the festive mood and look irresistible when you enter that Holi party. Choose from Bollyglow’s 10 Rebel Lips Lipsticks in shimmery shades to amp up your Holi look this year.
