The Makeup Brush Guide

Hello my beauties,
As I had promised you all in my previous blog on My Favorite Makeup Wearables, today I’m going to talk all about the make-up brushes, I’m going to cover everything related to brushes in this blog, as there’s so much to talk about the makeup brushes. I strongly believe that there is no point in having great make-up products until you don’t have right tools to apply. Well, I would try my best to explain to you what each makeup brushes are actually for and the must have make-up tools in your collection. Makeup tools are essential when you are perfecting your look. You can never go wrong with your makeup when you have got the right tool and technique. I can literally go on and on talking about the make-up brushes. A right brush can literally change everything. 

Basically there are several assorted brushes for your face, eyes, lips, eyelashes and even eyebrows. They are either synthetic brushes or natural brushes, both the brushes are useful for different functions when it comes to applying make-up and both are essential to your personal or professional makeup kit. Synthetic hair brush is great for cream and liquid products – including foundation, cream blush, gel liner and concealer. It is generally used because it does not absorb much of the product and apply a smooth finish onto the skin without much streaking. Natural hair brushes are the best for powder products – powder blush, face powder, bronzer and eye-shadow included. When the hairs are applied with pressure, they have more texture than synthetic bristles and therefore pick up powder well and blending is made easier and more natural on the skin. You can’t blend that well with synthetic bristles because the bristles don’t move as freely as natural hair bristles do.

Eye Brushes

Detail Brush:

This brush can be used to define your eyes. It can be used with gel eyeliners or even along your crease to get a more precise line.

Brow Brush:

This is important when you are filling in your eyebrows. It is angled so that you can get even the thinnest areas of your brows.

Lip Brush:

These brushes are synthetic, typically tiny and allow lipstick or gloss to be applied more precisely to the lips.

Mascara Wand:

mascara-application-guide-1.jpgLast but not the least Mascara wand, to be true all the mascaras are similar except a little waterproofing here, a little fortifying protein there, and different pigmentation, there’s really not much difference between them. If you thought all the mascara wands were the same, think again, because each type of mascara wand serves a different and specific purpose, and choosing the right one is important. There are different mascara wands for short lashes, lengthening and definition, thickening sparse lashes, precise application, natural look, curling and the bottom lashes. So it’s always better to recycle the mascara wand instead of throwing out.

I Hope this whole talk might help you to pick or invest in some essential make-up brushes till then keep experimenting with the makeup and the looks, like it down below and share it among your friends   !!
