#AccessoriesCrush: Create the perfect canvas with Sephora Pro brushes

So today I thought I’d talk about something a little different. Let’s look at those scary make-up brushes!

I mentioned it in a previous posts on the brushes I currently use, applying make-up with the right tools makes a HUGE difference. No kidding!  But what tools do you actually need?

There are so many different brushes it is difficult to make out which one you need to for which product.

So, here is a guide to  Sephora’s PRO Brushes & how to actually use them! Certainly not saying you need all of these but depending on which products you use as part of your routine, you may well want to renew / upgrade your tool kit!
