Have you tried Seint Makeup yet? If you haven’t, you are missing out. Seint’s cream IIID foundation has quickly become a favorite among women everywhere. I’ve been using it for a number of years now, and I can’t say enough good things about it. There are a lot of different application methods, but one of my favorite ways to apply it is with the Blush and Bronzer brush. Here’s how to apply Seint IIID foundation with the Blush and Bronzer Brush. (For a full video tutorial, click here.)
Why I love the Blush and Bronzer Brush
The blush and bronzer brush is my ride-or-die brush when it comes to applying my Seint makeup. This double-ended brush is perfect for working with the Seint creams. The bristles are soft and gentle on the skin, while still being densely packed together. This helps you always pick up the perfect amount of product for your face.
However, when it comes to using the Blush and Bronzer Brush to apply your Seint IIID foundation, there are a few drawbacks. Because both ends of the brush are round and full, they aren’t great for applying contour. They also aren’t good for small details on specific areas of your face. This is why I always recommend that my customers purchase the Detail Brush along with the Blush and Bronzer Brush for their makeup application. These two brushes together make the ultimate duo and will accomplish everything you need for your IIID Foundation application.
How to apply Seint IIID Foundation with the Blush and Bronzer Brush
It is not uncommon for someone to only have the Blush and Bronzer Brush when they first start out. This is usually because they purchase the Bronzer Bundle to save themselves some money. If you only have the Blush and Bronzer Brush when you are getting started, here is how to apply Seint IIID foundation to your face.
I recommend you start by applying your IIID Contour shade. Since the Blush and Bronzer Brush is a bit bulky for applying contour, I recommend using your finger to apply it. Just gently swipe your index finger across your contour shade, and then swipe it again across the sides of your face, directly underneath your cheekbones. Do the same thing along your jawline and around your hairline on your forehead. This will leave some dark contour lines on your face. But don’t worry; you’ll come back and blend them out later.
Next, take the Blush and Bronzer Brush and use the smaller end to apply your main highlight shade to your face, blending as you go. Make sure to go around the areas where you placed your contour so you don’t mess it up.
How to apply Seint IIID Foundation – the Brightening Highlight
After you get your main highlight shade applied, you will then move on to the brightening highlight. This is a lighter shade of highlight that will be used to brighten a few key areas of your face. Specifically, you will use this brightening shade on the following areas:
-inner corner of your eyes
-outer corners of your eyes
-the center of your chin
-above your cupid’s bow
-down the center of your nose
-fanned out in the center of your forehead
Because the brightening highlight shade needs to go in smaller areas and requires a more detailed application, you will want to use your finger again. This ensures that you will only get this lighter shade in the areas you want it to be placed. After you’ve finished applying your brightening highlight to the areas you need, you can also contour your nose. To do this, just dip your pinky finger into your contour shade and run it along the sides of your nose, right up against where you placed the brightening highlight down the center. And then connect the two lines at the bottom of your nose.
Blending your IIID Foundation with the Blush and Bronzer Brush
Now you’ll use the Blush and Bronzer brush to gently blend all of these different shades of IIID Foundation together on your skin for a smooth and seamless finish. I recommend using the smaller and denser end of the brush to blend the colors. To do this, use soft tapping or circular motions. It is crucial that you use a very light hand to blend the shades together and distribute the colors more evenly. This will ensure that you don’t lose any of the definition you gained when you applied your contour and brightening shade. And it will keep the different colors in the right areas of your face.
Applying Bronzer for Added Warmth
Once your highlight and contour shades are applied and blended, it’s time for bronzer. Apply the Bella Cream Bronzer to add a little extra glow to your face. To do this, use the larger end of the Blush and Bronzer Brush and swirl the bristles across the bronzer. You will then use soft, circular motions to apply the bronzer to your cheeks, right above the area where you placed your contour, and along the perimeters of your face. Bronzer is a great addition to your IIID Foundation. It adds more warmth and life to your face by giving you a healthy, sun-kissed glow.
After your bronzer is applied, apply some cream blush using your favorite Lip+Cheek shade from Seint. Using the small end of my Blush and Bronzer Brush, dip into your blush shade and apply the color to the apples of your cheeks, right above your contour line, and then pull it back slightly towards your temples, allowing it to fade out as you go. Once this is done, set your makeup with your Seint Setting Spray.
The Final Step for How to Apply Seint IIID Foundation with the Blush and Bronzer Brush
The final step on how to apply Seint IIID Foundation with the Blush & Bronzer Brush is to apply your Illuminator. This is the perfect finishing touch. It adds a glimmer of shine and luster to your cheekbones and down the center of your nose.
So, as you can see, you can definitely apply Seint IIID foundation with only the Blush and Bronzer Brush. All you need to do is get creative and use your fingers to help you with some of the extra details you want to see on your face.
