Cheap Treats: ELF Stipple Brush


Happy March 1st! First of all, where did February go? I think I'm still stuck in Disney World :) I'll be sharing more about that soon. In the meantime, check out my latest Cheap Treat. I like to share with you things I love that are $10 or fewer. Today's treat is the ELF Stipple Brush. It's only $3 and has so many uses! Y'all know I love a multi-use product. Read on:

Why do you need this brush in your makeup bag? 

  • It's only $3 (you can go up on the price for different brands; just Google it).
  • In spring/summer we tend to wear lighter makeup, and this is just great for that.
  • Many of you commented on yesterday's post that you have oily skin and can't use the BB Cream I recommended. The ELF Stipple Brush creates that airbrushed effect.
  • It can also be used to apply mineral makeup.
  • Do those gel blushes or cheek stains seem a little intimidating? Gently rub the brush on the blush and apply . Fool-proof, I tell ya.
  • Stippling/skunk brushes are also great for applying highlighter or bronzer.

How do you use it?
  • Dispense a small amount of liquid foundation/tinted moisturizer on the back of your non-dominant hand (or use a makeup sponge) and dip your brush in it. Now, dab and swirl!
  • Stipple, aka dab, the foundation onto your face.
  • Next, swirl the foundation you dabbed all over. If the black bristles are moving, you're swirling too hard. That's it! 
  • Note: if you have severely dry skin, I would not recommend putting on foundation with any sort of brush (stipple, kabuki, foundation, etc). Use a damp sponge or fingers instead.

  6. I have so many makeup brush sets that I never use! I'm pretty sure I have a stripple in there too. Now that I know what it's called and how to use it, I'll be dusting it off :)
