Hi GGs!

Knowing how to use your make-up brushes properly is very important. Here are a few easy tips for some of my favorite brushes and applicators.


Retractable Kabuki Brush

the perfect complexion powder brush


Designed specifically for my Baked complexion products, the Retractable Kabuki Brush picks up just the right amount of powder with its synthetic fibers. Each bristle has a gentle wave that allows it to readily pick up powder. The synthetic fibers cleanly deposit the product on your skin for a flawless finish. Perfect for all over face powders and blush. The synthetic taklon hair helps keep your brush clean by not absorbing make-up or oils from your face.


To use: dip the brush into your powder and lightly tap it to remove excess. Dust powder all over your face.


Retractable Powder Brush

the perfect multi-tasking brush for all-over face powders and/or blush


Just like the Retractable Kabuki Brush, this brush is designed to pick up just the right amount of powder. Use it to apply any of my Baked face or cheek products.


To use: dip the brush into face powder or blush and apply where desired. For more concentrated coverage, retract the brush halfway, so bristles are stacked closer together.


Lambswool Paddle

the skin-perfecting paddle


The first time I ever went on air on QVC, this ingenious product took the make-up world by storm, thanks to its skin-perfecting, airbrush-like qualities. Made of real wool, this soft blending paddle caresses your face, absorbs excess product and smoothes make-up in place.


To use: after applying your foundation, concealer and blush, use the paddle to blend and buff your face for a flawless finish. You can also use it as a powder and blush applicator.


Baked Highlighter Brush

the brush to brighten your face


Don’t underestimate this brush! It’s perfect for use with any of the Baked Highlighters. Double-ended applicators make it great for both face and eye application.


To use: with the smaller end of the applicator, apply the highlighter on the bone just under your eyebrow, or use the larger end to apply directly above the cheekbone.
