Picture this: Your makeup is flawless, your hair is sleek, you feel confident and beautiful in your outfit and you step out of your house. You arrive at a social event, you’re introduced to others and you extend your hand. You see their eyes looking at your hands. You look down as well; only to see swatches of different makeup products you once again forgot to wash off after completing your look. I can’t be the only one this has happened to. I even have a small photo album compiled by friends to prove to me how often I step outside the house, with foundation, mixed with an illuminator of course, on my left hand. For the sake of argument, let’s say this only happens to me.
In May of 2017, I had the pleasure of attending IMATS in London and came across a booth selling all sorts of makeup tools. Some looked too much of a gimmick sale and others made absolute sense. The latter was the case with this bracelet; it was simple, easy to use and I purchased it right away. From that day on, my arm only looks like a swatch board when I’m in makeup stores. I should start carrying it in my purse. It’s easy to clean: a simple baby wipe does the trick- it has a good pan size to mix colors and it clasps around your wrist to free both hands. Here at Equalia Beauty, we’re all about simplifying our lives. This tool certainly works in that direction.
