We’re always up for good makeup application tips, but there’s one thing about most of them that we’re not huge fans of: they require specialty brushes. While we appreciate that they can be a good investment, a lot of us can’t afford the really good ones, and honestly, we don’t always have the patience. Plus, we have a perfectly good tool already: our fingers! If you think that means we have to resign ourselves to overly-simple or basic looks, think again. You can actually get a totally gorgeous smokey eye without using any brushes at all. Eimear McElheron shows us how.
