The Right Tool for the Job: #7 Half Moon Brush

Posted on March 28, 2012 by terresa | 0 Comments

Have you looked at the photo of the adorable #7 Half Moon Brush and thought, "That brush is so cute, but what would I do with it?" Wonder no more, the #7 has many uses!

When you look at the front or back of the brush, you'll notice the gentle dome shape that lead to the name Half Moon, but if you look at it from the side, you will notice that the taper to the sides is much more steep.  This makes the brush a perfect tool for applying any product all over your face.  The taper of the bristles makes following the contours of your face as easy as can be!

Primer Powders

Honestly, this is why we created the brush in the first place.  When we use either Color Balancing Powder or Balancing Primer Powder, we like to have a dedicated brush for just those products, rather than going back and forth between foundation and primer with the same brush.  We made sure the bristles had that wonderful taper because we envisioned using this brush around the nose and cheeks.

Satin Matte Foundation

While not quite the perfect foundation tool that the #25 brush is, the #7 performs admirably in a pinch.  And by pinch, we mean for a mid-day touch up or even on overnight trips.  We've had occasion to use #7 in both situations recently, and it passed both tests with flying colors.

Satin Finishing Powder

Here's another case where we love having a non-foundation brush to apply a different product.  The surface of the brush is large, but the powder is light and sheer, so you never need to worry about applying too much, and the #7 is so handy for blending the powder out to all the parts of your face.

Luminous Shimmer Powder

If you hate mixing your matte and shimmer products on the same brush, this is a handy one to keep just for Luminous Shimmer Powder.  The taper makes it a breeze to sweep across the cheekbones, but the width of the bristles makes it fast and easy to apply shimmer powder to the legs or décolletage.

Bronzer

Of course you'd need to be sure you've worked the bronzer well into the bristles, but once you have, it works like a charm along the cheekbones, jawline and even bridge of the nose.

Aren't you wondering how you lived without this handy and adorable little brush?  And don't forget, it has the same super-soft, animal-free bristles of all of Alima Pure's brushes!
