Tips to glow from within

I want my makeup to make me look like I glow from within. In order to get this natural effect, I use stipple brushes.


Stipple brushes' longer bristles allow you to pick up just a small amount of color. Then when you apply, both the longer and shorter strands allow you a full brush worth of bristles for blending.



My go-to stipple brushes are the above three from affordable makeup brand e.l.f. cosmetics. I also have my eye on this MAC duo-fibre brush.


Blending prevents unnatural-looking harsh edges around your blush, bronzer, and highlighter. To further soften the edges, blend them out with a separate, clean brush.
