Louise McSharry: When it comes to applying your makeup, choose your weapon wisely

  • Brushes and sponges are great tools of the trade – but don’t forget your fingers

Tools form a crucial part of the experience

One thing I hope will become clear here as I write these columns is that I don’t believe in judgement when it comes to beauty. In fact, I sometimes think ‘beauty’ is a misnomer for the subject, as for many people it goes beyond the aesthetic. For me, the use of my products is about creativity and self-care (yes, I said self-care, now it’s your turn not to judge) and while the visual is part of it, the feeling I have when I smooth serums and creams over my face, is often most important. For that reason, the tools form a crucial part of the experience. Having said that, if you are someone who is using a tiny little plastic and foam eyeshadow applicator or a dirty makeup sponge you got in 1997 to apply your makeup, I do not judge you. We can only be where we are. But I want more for you, and there is so much more out there.
