Hands On: Hands Only Makeup Look

Hands Only Makeup - Face 2

Who needs brushes when you have hands?

I was thinking of a “challenge” for myself that I could do and I thought about going tool-less for a full face of makeup, which seems timely since I dropped quite a bit of cash on some brushes recently. I enjoy great tools, but it doesn’t mean that you are essentially powerless if you don’t have high-end brushes or eyelash curlers.

This is a pretty simple look I came up with, applied using only my hands, and I think it looks quite good. 🙂 At the very least, it’s functional for everyday. All hands on deck!

What do you think? Are you completely dependent on makeup tools or can you make do with your hands?

On another note, I forgot how much I love this foundation~

  1. Ooh I was planning a similarly themed post! On the plane I put everything on with my hands, heehee. 10 tools in 2 hands!

  2. Hey Carina, you did a great job! I think eyes are the most difficult thing for me to use nothing but my hands for, since mine aren’t too big and attention to detail is clearly needed 😉 Hmm maybe if I use a stick eyeshadow and leave my lower lash line alone I’d be fine though. What a fun challenge!
