A google notification popped up in my e.mail with an alert that a story I'd written a while back for Canadian Living had hit its radar. The subject was "5 Makeup Brushes You Really Need, Plus Application Tips." For fun I followed the link, and realized two things:
1) I've been doing dorky headlines for years.
2) Although I've acquired new ones since that story, the brush types I mentioned are still pretty much my five basics if those were all I could keep.
Then I realized that in fact I've changed my routine some since then, but that's another story.
If you're thinking about everyday makeup brushes, these are still the five I'd start with -- plus application tips.
