If you don’t know by now, I prefer a very simple every day makeup look- defined eyes, chiseled cheeks and a bold lip. You guys are always asking me what I use to do my cheekbone contour and the Sephora Pro Full Coverage Airbrush #53 is my secret weapon. It picks up just the right amount of product and allows me to precisely apply it for the perfect cheekbone contour.
The Sephora Pro Full Coverage Airbrush #53 has Naturon fibers made from a synthetic PBT and feature waves and pointed tips to emulate natural fibers. They have been treated with an antibacterial treatment. The brush is designed to be used all over the face to create a smooth, flawless, no-makeup look, but the size and shape make it perfect for contouring.
The bristles are dense allowing the brush to easily pick up liquids, powder and creams.
I use it with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit in Deep, using the deepest shade (Carob) to apply a detailed contour and I get amazing results every time.
The Sephora Pro Full Coverage Airbrush #53 is currently my favorite brush, and it also works well for blush and highlight application. The brush is a little pricey at $38, but it’s worth every penny in my opinion. If this is straight up out of your comfort zone and you want to try this type of brush the e.l.f. Blending Brush has a similar shape and it’s only $6, it’s just smaller in size…
I don’t personally own the e.l.f. Blending Brush so I can’t tell you if it works as well as the Sephora Pro Full Coverage Airbrush #53, but it’s worth a try if you just want to try a similar brush. As for me, I’m not giving up my #53. Uh uh, no way. I may get the e.l.f. brush for comparison purposes though, and to serve as a back up!
The Sephora Pro Full Coverage Airbrush #53 is available at Sephora $38
