I’ve talked about the importance of makeup brushes in one of my previous posts. Today, I want to tell you about the 7 professional makeup brushes you absolutely must have if you regularly use makeup. The right makeup brushes can greatly increase your own efficiency in applying your makeup thus reduce the time it takes to do up your face. So let’s get right down to it.
Professional Makeup Brushes I Can’t Do Without
A large, round-headed brush, this one will work perfectly to apply powder to your face and any other part of you that is exposed. The bristles ensure that you get complete coverage.
A foundation brush has a wide, pointed head and is made of synthetic material. This is so that the foundation does not stick to the brush but goes on to your face. The head of the brush will really help to blend the foundation into your skin.
Some foundation brushes are made for all kinds of foundation – creams and liquids included. But others are made specifically for foundation palettes. So you should buy a brush that is designed for application with the kind of foundation that you normally use.
This one typically has a flat head that allows you to dab the concealer expertly onto those unsightly blemishes and spots.
The tapered point of this brush means that you can quickly put on that gorgeous lip color. The brush is designed to allow you to stay within your lips only and prevent you from coloring outside the line of your lips.
This is an extra fine brush. Its main job is to ensure that you get the most precise lines when you apply your eye liner.
Eye Shader Brush
The job of this medium stiff brush is to sweep eye shadow evenly over your eye lids. It allows for smooth application and expert blending. There are many different kinds of eye shader brushes available. The one that is right for you will depend on the type of eye makeup that you want to do.
This multi-utility brush is undoubtedly my favorite simply because of all the things I can do with it. This is not strictly considered a must-have makeup brush. But I have included it here as I think it’s essential for every woman to have this little gem in her makeup kit.
I use the highlighter brush to add just a touch of glimmer to my face. The bristles pick up just a small amount so the glitter does not overwhelm the makeup but complements my makeup to just the right degree. Since I prefer to keep my makeup minimal and natural in the summer, this brush is perfect for the hot season. The bristles are designed to pick up and dust on small amounts of foundation, powder, bronzer or blush.
So my makeup secret is out. The professional makeup brushes in this list that I regularly use are the reason my makeup always looks like it has been applied by an expert.
