Makeup Brushes- WHAT TO KNOW
I always say, you can have the newest and best makeup product on the Sephora selves but if you don't have the right tools to apply them, they are worthless! Michaelangelo couldn't have painted the Sistine Chapel with sticks. And yes, our faces are our masterpieces! (Paint or no paint).
When looking for a brush, don't look at what the brush is named as or what it's intended use is. I have countless brushes that I like to use- just because they work to get to the final result.
Synthetic (usually used for foundation or concealers *liquids) or natural haired brushes (eyes and blushes *powders) are the best. Some of my favorite brush brands are Mac (before they changed the bristles on the eye brushes) and Morphe! Morphe is great inexpensive brand that offers quality brushes.
Eyeshadow- Oval or dome shaped brushes for the crease and to build demension (Morphe 504 - Mac 217 - Mac 221)
Gel Liner- Angled brushes are easiest to apply such as the (Mac 264) or a straight brush like the (Mac 210.) PRACTICE!
Face (Foundation)- Flat "Kabuki" (Morphe 439) or stippling brush (Morphe M427)
Blush- I like to use something a little less dense and soft (Morphe M554)
Contour- For powder, look for an angeled brush like the (Morphe M406)
Contour- For liquid, I like to use something synthetic and with short bristles. (Real Techniques Contour brush)
Highlight- Anything that fits to the highpoints of the face. (Real Techniques Setting brush)
