Choosing The Right Make Up Brush
The right makeup brush is essential for perfect application. As one of your most basic tools, a quality brush is needed for flawless application, balance and precision.
So how do you know which brushes are quality brushes? Here is a guide to help you get the right brush for your specific application needs.
Choosing a make up brush:
You want to go with a natural hair brush for things like powder blush, face powder and eye shadow. Not only is a natural hair brush softer on your skin, it has cuticles which allow it to pick up and hold onto powders and help to evenly distribute and blend them.
When working with an oil based make up like concealer, eye shadow base or many cream products, use a quality synthetic bristled brush. When choosing a brush, you want to choose a dense full brush with a soft texture and a tapered rounded shape for even application.
Maintaining your new brush:
Maintaining your brush is the key to making sure that the quality brush you just bought remains quality. Wash your powder brushes once a month with a gentle foaming cleanser or even just shampoo.
For the synthetic brushes you will need a cleansing product for oil based make ups. Wash the brushes until you can see no more color, then let them air dry. Remember to replace your brushes once a year and be sure never to use the same make up brushes for both light and dark shades of make up.
Types of brushes for types of make up:
Blush Brushes- this brush should be dense and flat with rounded edges. Avoid fat brushes. By using a flatter brush you can apply the blusher evenly. These flatter brushes are designed to fit the natural curve of the cheekbone and help grab and pull the blush evenly across the skin. They are also better at getting into tighter areas where oil can cause shine.
Eye Shadow Brushes- with shadow brushes you will want two kinds. First; a firmer, dense, angled brush for stronger colors and to give a more concentrated look around the rim of the eye. The other is a softer brush for a blended application over the eyelid. Remember the softer the brush, the more blended and spread out the eye shadow is going to be.
Concealer Brush- this is used along with your concealer cream to hide blemishes and imperfections in the skin. A good concealer brush allows better coverage and a more natural distribution over the area to be hidden and makes it easier for you to blend the concealer well.
When choosing, you will want a brush that is stiffer to provide more control with a flat headed tip that can reach even the most difficult dark spots. Remember not to overload the brush.
