10 Make-up Brushes I use Everyday

There are a variety of brushes that range in size. The lip brush is generally one of the smallest and the powder brush is generally the largest. There are many more kinds of brushes of different sizes in between.

Make sure the brush you use is suited for the job. The best way to pick the right brush is to choose one that is a reasonable size and stiffness for what you are using it for.

  • A stiff brush will deposit more colour and works well for a dramatic effect or precise application.
  • A wide brush works well for applying colour to large areas and for blending.
  • An angled or dome shaped brush works well for contouring or shading.
  • A small to medium brush, angled or dome shaped of medium stiffness, works well for precise
    work such as shading small areas.

Precise application and lots of blending is the key to flawless make up. Because blending and precision are so important, you should invest in the right tools. The quality of the make up brushes can make or break your look. It’s like building a house… Yes, you can build a house with a hammer, nails and hand saw. However, with modern tools the job is much quicker and the results are better.
