If you look around my bathroom, you'll see makeup brushes spilling out of every container. Some may say I have a tiny obsession with them. But everywhere I turn, makeup artists are using their hands as painter's palettes -- dabbing, pressing and molding faces into perfection with their digits. As it turns out, your fingers aren't just good to use in a pinch -- some products apply better with your fingers than with brushes. I enlisted Gita Bass, celebrity makeup artist and member of the Simple Advisory Board (she also happens to use her fingers to apply the majority of her makeup), to tell me all about this "finger painting" movement.
If you're looking for a Kim K. level of makeup, your fingers probably aren't your best bet. But if you want the looks we saw all over the runways this season, ditch your brushes and go for something a little sexy, a little undone -- and a lot of fun to play with.
