Tappa, tappa, tappa
I bet you’ve got little Lisa Simpson shuffling awkwardly across the dance floor in your head now, right? Well, as cutely un-coordinated as she seemed in that memorable tap dancing episode, my goal is to get you tapping your brushes people, your brushes!
If I had a dollar for the number of times I’ve been a tad too hasty with my blush or bronzer brush and ended up looking more like I’d been slapped or badly bruised than perfectly pinked, I’d have around…oh…$47. That’s because I never knew the secret - the secret that every bonafide beauty buff has to live by:
Before thou applies that freshly dipped blush brush on to thou face, thou must first tap off any excess product back into thy lid.
This works to get rid of the powder on the highest bristles of the brush, and allows you to work the colour in, instead of just placing it on the cheek. Tapping the excess back into the lid also means that no precious powder is wasted - so it’s really a win win situation. What are you waiting for? Get tapping!
Have you been caught without tapping your brush before? What was the outcome?
