As a make-up and product obsessed junkie, I have learned to appreciate the art of mastering makeup application.
In order to master the application process, one must obtain the correct tools. Brushes are by far the most important accessory a makeup diva can own. Down to the shape, bristle hair, size; it all makes the world of a difference. We highly recommend purchasing brushes at high end department stores and not your local CVS. The luxurious style full fluffy style brushes tend to do the trick much better than the others. Here is my list of must-have makeup brushes.
1. Angled Contour Brush
This is by far my favorite type of brush. A nice angled contour bristle, will give you that contoured flawless perfection. In order to achieve this look swipe the brush with a darker shade diagonally along your cheekbone.
2. Foundation Stippling Brush
A stippling brush is great for applying a nice dewy foundation. Lightly dab this brush with foundation along your face for a flawless dewy finish.
3. Eye Shader Brush
This is a basic brush that shades your lids any matte or shimmering shade. You can even use this brush for smudging along the lashing, and lining your crease.
4. Beauty Blender
Though not a brush, the beauty blender has been a huge commodity over the last year. There is a reason why! This amazing tool blends foundations, blushes, bronzers and contour shades to perfection for an ultimately flawless face.
5. Dual Ended Brow Brush
A double edged sword that combines a brow brush with an angled brow brush can be used to achieve arched eye brow perfection. Use the brush for grooming and the angled side for filling in brows with powder.
6. Bent Liner Brush
This brush is ideal for applying a gel liner on your lash lines. The curved tips helps create a straight line that can be difficult to achieve otherwise.
7. Stiff Dome Brush
This brush is perfect for creating a smoldering smokey eye. By softly feathering alone lids you can blend out your crease for a sexy look.
8. Soft Dome Brush
A dome shaped brush with soft bristles will be ideal for blending out harsh lines created by the brow bone or crease line. You can also use this brush under your eyes to hide dark circles.
9. Pencil Brush
A pencil brush is great for shading on the lid, crease of eye or along your lash line. Darken your outer “v” for a dramatic look.
10. Cheek Highlighter Brush
Ah, atlas the cheek highlighting brush! We love this soft bristle for a shimmering highlight along the top of your cheekbones. You will be glowing!
So there you have it ladies. I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for more beauty tips and tricks.
