Skip the Brush Crème-to-Powder Cheek Sticks FINALLY hit the shelves this month in our August Maven collection. We say “finally” because we’ve been having fun with these all summer and we’re excited to finally share & gush about them with others!
Skip the Brush goes on creamy, gives you a plenty of time to blend how you want, and then sets for long-wear. Four shades available from left to right: Desert Rose, Peony Pink, Golden Guava, and Moonlit Sand.
You can see swatches of each in the August Maven Reveal blog post, about halfway down the page here.
Pro Tip: Desert Rose & Moonlit Sand are the easiest highlighting & contouring duo in your makeup bag. More on that below!
Look how easy it is to go from fresh-faced to….Fresher faced. Soooo easy.
Here’s a closer look:
1. Dot, don’t swipe
We do three dots on our cheek with Skip the Brush in Golden Guava. The first dot is about two fingers width distance from the nose. We also make that first dot the biggest, with the most concentrated color.
2. Blend blend blend
We do a combo of gently patting & blending upwards until the powder is just how we want it. Presto! Easy cheeks. Ready for the day.
3. Bonus! A little extra
Put a little Skip the Brush in the same shade (Golden Guava, here) on your finger for some color your lower lip, and a little bit more for eyelids. It’s so easy, sometimes we think it’s even easier than not wearing makeup at all.
ONE STICK WONDER
Skip the Brush is awesomely versatile. Put it on your cheeks, your eyes, your lips… Also, are you ready for the easiest highlighting and contouring you’ve ever done? Yeah, us too.
1. The “C” method
- Highlight with Skip the Brush in Moonlit Sand by swiping from your brow bone down under your eye in the shape of the letter C.
- Contour with Skip the Brush in Desert Rose with three dots on your cheek, making sure the first/lowest dot is the biggest, with the most concentrated color.
- Use your fingers to blend blend blend outward from your eyes, and upward on your cheeks.
2. A little extra highlighting
Skip the Brush Moonlit Sand is maybe our new favorite everything. Put a little on your finger to highlight your Cupid’s Bow, and the inner corners of your eyes.
3. Cheek color = lip color
We used Skip the Brush in Desert Rose on the cheeks, so we finish with a little on the lips! You can try this with any color. Peony Pink is an office favorite for the cheeks + lips combo.
We’re highlighted, contoured, cheeked, lipped, lidded… Skip the Brush should’ve been called Skip the Everything & Save All the Time.
We’re taking any questions you might have in the comments! As always, we’d love to hear which Skip the Brush colors you’re getting, and what you’re doing with them. Happy Maven Reveal, ladies!
