So if your having a hard time starting the make up process..the first thing I suggest is purchasing some brushes. These brushes above ^ I use each and every 1 for different purposes. Applying any make up I use brushes instead of like a sponge or cotton <==== those items are messy and dirty. Try the different brushes to see which one works best for applying foundation,minerals,eyeshadow, eyebrows and etc. Be sure to clean the brushes occasionally because.. you can.
