There is only one thing I love just as much as makeup - the tools with which to apply it.
I have already mentioned that these are extremely important, so I will not go too into detail about that! I am here to review two products that I love and recommend to you guys, both at great deals!
IF YOU ARE SOMEONE WHO HAS NO TOOLS:
You need a started set of makeup brushes. There are a lot of great ones out there, but most of them are extremely expensive, or if they aren't expensive, will fall apart in a matter of uses.
These are by a brand called Blushies (Check out the website here!)
I got my set off of amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Professional-Affordable-Eyeshadow-Synthetic-Sophisticated/dp/B00LGYVWS8
this is the 22 piece set.
Not only are they a great quality, but the case is PERFECT. At my MAC demonstration interview I used this case with some of the brushes and completely fit in with the rest of the professionals.
The brushes are very soft and firm. I would recommend getting a kit with maybe a few more fluffy brushes as opposed to so many concealers, but I wouldn't return this kit for the world!
Highly HIGHLY recommend these puppies.
IF YOU ARE SOMEONE WHO HAS ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY THE BEAUTY BLENDER:
Try the Rouge Smooth Blender...
This is the best dupe I have ever found! This is a sponge that is the exact same shape, size, texture.... everything. The only difference is that it is a tiny bit firmer than the beauty blender, which I don't mind, as I find it seals in the foundation even better.
I got mine off amazon : http://www.amazon.com/Beauty-Blender-Sponge-Bonus-eBook/dp/B00KYF03BM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=undefined&sr=8-1&keywords=rougesmooth
Not only is it less expensive, I have a discount code for any of you who want to try it!

IF YOU ARE SOMEONE THAT JUST WANTS BOTH: Do it. I use a mix of the products all the time. I used both of these products - the case, brushes, and blender, at my interview, and I performed better than I could have hoped for. I have such faith in these products :)
