An Eco-Friendly Bronzer Brush!

I’ve waxed on before about the amazingly good Ecotools makeup brushes. They’re super soft and yet not made from any questionable animal hair.  They don’t shed like most department store brands I’ve tried, and yet cost a fraction of the price—under $10 to be exact. It’s kind of a no-brainer. The newest of the bunch is this bronzer brush, available at most drugstores. I love that the bamboo handle is heavy, so I have more control when applying my Smashbox bronzer. And the rounded, dense shape makes shading in the right places so much easier. You know, the last thing you want is to cover your entire face in bronzer and look like this. It’s all about focusing on the places where the sun would naturally hit your face: forehead, cheekbones, nose, and a dot on the chin. And do use a light hand—you can always add more!

I’m giving away a handful of these bad boys today! Just leave a comment with your favorite bronzer. If you haven’t found one yet, what are you looking for? I’m here to help.

UPDATE: Congrats to Anne Marie, Suzi, Betsy, and Patty, whose name I pulled from my magic makeup bag!
