It is really hard to be able to apply makeup properly without the right tools. In this module we present you with tools you will need to take care of various services for your clients. It will give you an idea of how you can use these tools to make things easier. It will give you information about why you should choose various products and how to sort through the many choices out there, to find the ones that are going to give you the best results. There are many tools that can be used to create many techniques. However, some are easier to use than others. This module will go over the tool options that are out there and help you determine which ones are going to be the best for you and the looks that you are trying to create. For example, it may be difficult to use a blush brush for the application of eye shadow. It can be done, but that may not get the same results as an eyeshadow brush. By using the right tools and using them properly, you can create the looks that you are going for. A good brush for the application of blush, powder, lipstick and eyeshadow is made of real hair. Brushes made of synthetic materials work good for lips, foundations and concealers. You will find that these synthetic brushes are not good for makeup in the powder format. The bristles of these synthetic brushes will not be able to hold the makeup. It will cause your makeup to be blotchy and not consistent. It is difficult to contour, blend, or smudge with synthetic brushes. The tips of real hair brushes are uncut and that makes them hold the powder better. Look for a handmade brush, which will work great for makeup in the powder format. These handmade brushes feel great on the skin and have the best results overall. In the next topic we take a closer look at the different types of makeup brushes available.
