Racking your brains on which makeup brushes you should include on your beauty arsenal, or perhaps getting started on your own assortment is usually challenging at best, particularly for somebody who is simply getting started. Considering the variety of brushes to choose from, working to determine which types to include in your makeup toolbox could be too much to handle.
Having said that, getting the proper brushes help make a huge difference in the your makeup application. Scroll down to learn the basic makeup brushes we all need for your eyes plus the correct way to work with each one of these. You can check out my last post about Makeup Brushes Face Edition here.
They say that the eyes are the mirror of the soul, which explains why women go to great lengths to emphasize them. Highlighting your natural beauty is much easier when you are using the right brushes, so these are some of the best choices for different tasks.
1.) Flat Stiff Lid Brush
The lids need special attention and not any brush will do, but a thin one of medium length featuring natural bristles will get the job done. A special trick that I’ve learned is to wet the brush first and after dipping it in the shadow, check the consistency on your hand. You will either have to do it again or use it right away, the trick is to sweep it carefully over the entire lid to enhance its effect.
Please note: moistening shadows is ideally suited for shimmer or metallic, not matte shades. Additionally, this particular brush also works well for your brow bone and lower lid.
2.) Angled Creased Brush
Natural bristles are essential for the angled crease brush, which needs to fit like a glove when you try to create a special smoky eye effect. This is a dual-purposed brush designed to deliver a full-coverage eye shadow application with its flat side and crease contour with the angled tip. For crease contour, sweep the angled tip of the brush into the crease of the eye, working it in a windshield wiper motion until color is seamlessly blended.
3.) Blending Brush
Smoothing hard edges is a task that the Pony Tail brush is best suited for and if used properly it will highlight your eyelids. It is supposed to be used over the crease and the lid with sweeping moves but it can also be used for powdering the lips. This brush is meant for blending instead of packing on color which is great for blending out harsh lines and feathering colors.
4.) Lash Line Smudge Brush
If you want to avoid having your bottom lid looking as a line, you will need a brush that was created precisely for smudging. The effects are vastly superior to what you would achieve by using nothing more than a finger, and the best ones for this procedure would feature a flat head and thick natural bristles for enhanced precision.
5.) Liner Brush
5.a) Slanted Liner Brush
There is definitely no shortage of gel liners but the most suitable for the job are the slanted and pointed liner brushes. These are easier to handle hence more precise, allowing you to apply color even in the delicate area between the lashes and the eye.
5.b) Pointed Liner Brush
Using this brush allows you the most precision you can get in eye corners, you can create a very clean line using this pointed liner brush.
6.) Double-Ended Brow Brush
If you want to treat your brows properly, help yourself to a double ended brush that was created especially to apply powder on the brows. The resemblance to a mascara wand is uncanny, so even if you use it for the first time, you shouldn’t have problems in finding the right product.
