November Favorite Post Round Ups

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I love the idea of rounding up my favorite posts from this past month. Not everyone has a chance to see everything I post and I think it’s beneficial for those who aren’t subscribed to just get a small look at some of the best blogs I’ve posted in the past month. If you like this idea as well, then give it a like down below and I’ll keep this up!

Must-Have Makeup Brushes

 

1

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Let’s talk about the essentials when it comes to makeup brushes. I don’t pretend to be any kind of makeup artist or “guru” and I don’t very much care about name brands. So, I can’t honestly tell you the brand of most of my makeup brushes. All I know is that they came from online boutiques, drugstores, or from Sephora. However, I know which type of makeup brushes you should have in your personal arsenal. Let’s get into it!

2

Flat Top Kabuki Brush – Great for blending out foundation if you prefer brushes to sponges. (I prefer sponge for a more flawless airbrushed finish.) This brush is also great for blending together your contour, blush, and highlight to give you a natural finish.

3

Face Powder Brush – I always set my foundation with a large soft face powder brush. I think it’s a great addition to the arsenal!

4

Contour Brush – I have a couple brushes for this. The first is an angled brush that does wonders. However, my favorite of the two is my Nars ita brush. (It’s a $50 brush. It’s excessive, I know. The shape is all you really need.) It’s great for carving out the cheekbones.

5

Blush Brush – This smaller dome shaped blush brush is great for applying blush!

6

Eye Blending Brush – I can’t tell you how many of these I actually have. I’m often lazy and when I don’t want to wash brushes to switch colors, I take a new blending brush. I can’t do my eyeshadow without one of these brushes

7

Flat Eyeshadow Brush – These are great for packing on pigment. I use these primarily for packing on shimmers to my lids.

I clearly have an excessive amount of brushes but I use the majority of them. This post is just designed to show you what brushes you need to purchase first, or just what a normal everyday person needs (haha!). I hope you enjoyed. I’ll see you Wednesday with another wedding post that I’ve been dying to share!

New Find at Sephora – Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

It was about time I upgraded my eyeshadow collection! I’ve been eyeing (pun intended) this little beauty for quite some time now and as my old eye shadow palette was getting low, I decided it was time to upgrade to a cruelty free brand. I don’t do too many crazy looks with my makeup. I really just needed a palette I could create a multitude of natural looks with. I definitely found that in this palette! I’m super excited to start playing around with all the colors and I’ll be sure to let you all know my thoughts. You can guess that this will be on my eyes nonstop for the next few weeks. All of the colors are gorgeous and all swatched beautifully except Sexpresso (sad day). Hopefully it does better on the eyelids. Either way, I’m super excited to see all the looks I can come up with! Let me know in the comments if you would like to see a makeup look with this. I’d love to try that out for you and see how creative I can get!
