Carrie Underwood said,
“I really like the way they feel on my skin, and they’re great for applying makeup.”
INO says we can’t agree more! Celebrity makeup artist Elaina Badro created her namesake professional makeup brushes “to create the flawless makeup looks for red carpet events, music videos, photo shoots, advertisements, etc.”
The Elaina Badro makeup brushes are INO tested and approved! The sixteen brush collection is expertly designed to help you create flawless looks. We’re not the only ones obsessed with these brushes. Not only is Carrie Underwood a fan, but so is InStyle and Refinery29! We’re in good company.
INO got an exclusive interview with Elaina Badro and asked her to spill her secrets. We wanted to know which brushes need to be in every woman’s makeup bag. Badro said,
“I created the “The Essential Brush Kit” ($113.00) to be the fundamental tools that every women needs. This kit includes the foundation, contour, blending, shader, smudger, and synthetic angled liner brush.”
When purchased individually, the Elaina Badro brush retail for $8-$34. These brushes can last forever if properly cared for. Badro advises,
“Makeup artists tend to clean their brushes a lot more often than your every day women. Cleaning your brushes every 2-3 weeks is more than enough if you’re using the brushes solely on yourself. A mild shampoo is ideal, stay away from color treated and/or any specialty shampoos.”
Finally, we wanted to know an insider trick for taking makeup from day to night. Here’s what Badro had to say,
“The quickest way to go from a “day” look to a “night” look is to apply a black pencil in the waterline of your eye. This will instantly add a little drama to the eye for your night out. Apply a dark brown or black shadow and use the smudger brush underneath bottom lashes for a soft smokey look.”
