I’ve been wanting to tell you about one of my most-used and favourite brushes for a while – the Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush. Despite its name, I don’t use it for powder nor for what Hourglass intended it for. Instead, it’s a brush that has helped me appreciate wearing bronzer or what I prefer to call a complexion-warming powder.
I shared once before about how I had finally learnt to appreciate wearing a bronzing powder and I shared the brushes I was using. But I realized that those brushes were still a little too precise for me. I decided that I don’t wear bronzer to contour – I wear it to add a touch of warmth to my skin, because I find I look better that way.
Enter then the Hourglass Ambient Powder brush. You can see how worn away the print is on mine – it’s because I use it practically everyday! Or every day that I wear makeup. Even on days when all I wear is a light tinted base, a touch of complexion warming powders help me look a whole lot better.
I was first introduced to this brush by Sophia of Makeup Blogette on Instagram. When I watched her doing her makeup in videos, she used to use this brush, and I was intrigued. More so by the size, shape and lack of handle! So one day, I gave in to my curiousity and picked one up.
