Today i thought we could have a little chat on brushes.
By no means am i an expert on them but through my obsession with all things beauty i have learnt a little.
I often get asked; Why do you need so many brushes? or What are they for? So i thought id go through some of my favourites and what i personally use them for!
A blush brush - I really like to use angled brushes for blush as i feel they fit nicely onto the apples of the cheeks and also don't apply to much product.
i particularly like this one as its fluffy so it blends the product nicely.
SIGMA LARGE POWDER F30 (ESSENTIAL KIT)
A large powder brush. A fluffy powder brush is great for applying powder or powder products without over doing it and getting that undesired 'cakey look'.
•REAL TECHNIQUES DOME SHADOW BRUSH
•CHEEKY BRUSHES FLAT SHADOW BRUSH
Concealer brushes are great for blending products together.
i personally don't use them for under the eyes, as using your ring finger to blend it warms up the product therefore it blends better.
But for imperfections using a brush is more hygienic and buffs the products more evenly.
•MAC 224 TAPERED BLENDING BRUSH
Blending brushes are the brush i have the most of, They can be used with shadows to defuse them out to give a soft look; or used clean to blend and produce a 'smokey eye'.
I also you the 224 for contouring the nose.
SUQQU CHEEK BRUSH
This is possibly my favourite brush.
I use this for contour and bronzer; like the cheek brush its angled, so it fits nicely under the cheek bones and on the temples, to give a bronzed and sculpted look.
REAL TECHNIQUES BUFFING BRUSH
the infamous buffing brush, this cult product from the 'core collection' is one of the best buys on the highstreet.
it blends and buffs in base products so nicely. It doesn't leave brush streaks nor does it malt onto the skin.
the synthetic fibres don't 'eat up' the product and it takes literally 1 minuet to apply your base.
CHANEL SMALL DUO FIBER FACE BRUSH
Duo fiber brushes are great for those products that you dont want to apply alot of. Because the fibers are more dense at the bottom and then thin off towards the top, this allows for a lighter application.
I use this for highlighter as nobody wants to look like a glitter ball.
A flat shader brush is great for products such as pigments and glitters (things that tend to go all over the place)
By patting the product on instead of sweeping the product sticks (i recommend using a base of either an eye primer of cream shadow)
MAC 316 LIP BRUSH
i'm a lover of a bold bright lip, so for accurate and neat application a lip brush is an essential.
I'm not a huge fan of squared lip brushes as ... your lips arn't square.
SIGMA SMALL ANGLE BRUSH E65
Cat eyes yah yah, Liner is a must have for me. I love an angled brush as its so much easier for me to achieve an even flick.
A small thin brush is good for liner because its easy to add more but its a right meerrr to take it away.
DOUBLE ENDED BROW BRUSH (SPOOLIE/DENSE ANGLED BRUSH)
Brows <3, My favourite way to do my brows is with power (MUA Shade 19) Holy grail. And this brush i've had for years and its the best; On one end there is a densely packed angled brush so you can get the shape and on the other a spoolie to brush out the product and keep things in place.
really hope this helped :)!!
Hope you liked this look
