Before I got heavily into makeup,the only tools I used were some eye brushes,a basic powder brush and *maybe* a concealer brush. The array of brushes on the market were intimidating. Synthetic? Natural? WTF is a fan brush even for? Why do I need 10+ cosmetic brushes?
Well darlings,I`ll tell you *exactly* why you need a horde of tools. Let`s start with the basics.
A foundation brush: A foundation brush is one of those tools that are so multifunctional,you`ll wonder how on earth you ever did without one. You can apply moisturizer,luminizer,liquid brozer and of course foundation with this. You`ll use less product because it`s not absorbing into your skin and you`ll get a smoother,more even finish with all your liquids. I prefer synthetics because they are easier to clean.
Eye Shadow Brushes: Eye shadow brushes are essential. Now,repeat after me `I promise to toss all my crappy sponge applicators`. Sponge applicators will never get you that Kim K smoky eye or that wild YouTube guru eye look. A good selection of natural eyeshadow brushes in varying sizes WILL. What good Mac pigment if it`s an uneven,splotchy mess?
Mineral Powder Brush: If you use any loose powder,you NEED a mineral powder brush. Swirl the powder in the lid,tap and apply. Viola! An even clean finish. Look for one that is natural,full and on the larger side.
A Powder Brush: This is the best for applying brush or a pressed powder. Also look for a natural brush.
A Concealer Brush: Applying concealer with your finger is a MESS. Not to mention when blending you`re sure to blend out what you`ve tried to concentrate the concealer on,rendering the product useless. You need a small natural or synthetic one and make sure it is square. You can use the edges on really small areas.
Last but not least...The Fan Brush! The fan brush is great for powdered highlighter. It applies just.a small amount of product,but the shape.helps you control where you want the product and how much you want to blend.
Hope this helped ladies,xoxo! Like and share!
