How do I know which makeup brush to use?
So you went ahead and bought the whole set of makeup brushes. There is an iffy little problem though – With so many brushes I was unsure where to start.
But don’t worry. Once you have read through our guide, you will know exactly which makeup brush to use in which scenario, and perhaps more importantly, be able to tell them apart.
One of the most ubiquitous beauty products is powders. From loose shimmer powders to more concentrated foundation products, makeup powders come in quite a varied selection. Naturally, this necessitates a larger variety of brushes as well.
Now, while all brushes meant to apply powdered products tend to be thick and full-fibered, they differ significantly based on which part of the face they are meant for.
Choose large and fluffy brushes for loosely dusting your face with powder, like the powder brush or the kabuki brush.
For applying powder-based foundations and blushes, go with smaller, rounded brushes like the blush brush or bronzer brush.
Foundations, highlights, blushes, and other liquid products call for flat brushes with synthetic fibers. This ensures that the product can be applied in even strokes across your face, instead of the swirling motions favored for powders.
The tapered foundation brush and the concealer brush are examples of such brushes, along with most eye shadow brushes. Some brushes are multipurpose. have fun in experimenting with your look.
For Correcting Mistakes
When you are starting out, you are likely to make mistakes in applying different makeup products. A fan brush is essential for sweeping off excess powder and flecks of color without ruining your whole face. This is quick and easy to do and means you dnt have to start from the beginning
