Knowing the “what and how to” of make-up brushes are key to getting the most out of the tools we purchase. I admit, sometimes I purchase blindly, not knowing it’s actual use and purpose, only thinking it might be something important.
Angled Blush brush – An angled edge brush is meant more for contouring your brush. It’s sculpted for cheeks. The soft bristles fit perfectly in cheek contours for defined cheekbones.
Eyeshadow brushes – Eyeshadow brushes are for applying primers and base color to your eye area.
The shorter soft-bristled brush can also act as a concealer brush. You can use it to apply concealer under the eyes, to spots and to camouflage problem areas.
Blending brush – For shading or (as the name implies) blending of colour or creamy products. This brush has fine, densely packed fibers that are arranged in an oval shape.
Eyebrow brush – Applies colour to the brow. Use to define or add “fill”. Start in the middle of the brow and work your way to the outside. Target those areas of the brow where hair is thin or light, and fill them in using short strokes.
As I say, we all learn from each other. Comment below with some more tips (and/or corrections, if there are) on these make-up tools. I would love to learn more about them so I can maximize their full potential! I’m trying to bring out the inner-Tamang Phan Make Up extraordinaire in me and bookmarking a couple hundred YouTube tutorials too! Haha.
If you have tutorials, feel free to share them with me. I’ll feature you on this blog.
