Cropped jeans, neck scarves, mules, off the shoulder tops, and basket purses. These are just a few of my favorite things I’ve been into a lot this Spring. Almost everything in this outfit was thrifted and I love it. I found these Levis for $3, the basket purse for $2, and the neck scarf for 50 cents. My top was a gift from Allegra K ($13) and my taupe mules I found for $20 on my birthday shopping trip last month. My beaded bracelet was actually the first one I ever made on my bead loom.

I finally got around to playing with my round makeup brushes from My Makeup Brush Set, and I was pleasantly surprised! As a makeup artist, I have my favorite go-to brushes that I can’t live without but I challenged myself to create a look only using my oval brush set. First off, they’re sooo soft and I love it. I really loved how my foundation buffed in to my skin without any streaking. I also thought that a lot of my products would be absorbed too much by the brushes but they weren’t. I used the second biggest brush to apply foundation and also used it to apply my bronzer and blush and it worked great. I used the smallest circle shaped brush to apply my eyeshadow to the crease and outer corner. The eyeshadow applied well and I liked it but I did go in with my fingers and soften the edges of my eyeshadow since I didn’t have any type of blending brush. I would also say to be soft handed when dipping into any of your pressed powder products. Because they’re synthetic bristles and pretty dense, if you press to hard you’ll have a lot of left over powder that you won’t use that you’ll end up blowing off your palette or powder. I really loved the smallest thinner round shaped brush. I used it as a smudge brush to soften and smoke out my bottom pencil eyeliner and it looked great! Overall I liked these brushes and it was fun to challenge myself to use something different. I would definitely say that these brushes would take some getting used to, but I can tell the more I use them the more I’ll love them.
