Tips for using makeup brushes

Getting it right is a battle; where using the correct brushes is the key to achieving perfect makeup.


This article explains the different uses of different types of makeup brushes, making it easier for you to choose which brushes to buy and when to use them.

1. Lip brush

Lip brushes often make applying lipstick easier and more precise. You can create a smooth lip contour with it, and it is also very easy to adjust the intensity of the lip color by applying lipstick little by little.

Synthetic hair is best, but it should still be bendable. It allows you to soften the lip color without leaving any marks.

2. Powder brush


You should choose a powder brush with a slightly rounded tip, medium size. It will give you more control over how you apply the powder on your skin, and only dab the powder where you need it, such as your forehead, chin, and nose.

Before buying a powder brush, test it by applying it to the back of your hand. You should feel it's soft and the bristles are firmly attached to the handle, with no strands falling out.

3. Foundation brush


The best foundation brush will have a blend of natural ingredients and synthetic fibers. It gives you a natural looking foundation.

The natural fibers help the powder last longer, while the synthetic fibers keep the brush from soaking up too much cream and keep the hairs from tangling together. Plus, you save money in the long run by using less makeup.

Choose a brush with a flat brush head with a straight line that allows you to easily use it when applying makeup, especially in tight places such as around the nose and eyes.

4. Concealer Brush

With a concealer brush, you should choose a small head with stiff bristles, so applying makeup will be precise in the necessary skin areas.

The best option here is synthetic fibers, as they don't absorb powder and help you apply accurately.

5. Eyeshadow brush

The eyeshadow brush needs to be soft and smooth. The sensitive eye skin certainly does not want it to be too hard and hairy.

You should use a 2-headed brush, one end is used to apply eyeshadow, the other end is angled to apply the darker part to create creases.

6. Eyebrow brush


Typically the small plastic eyebrow brush comes complete with a comb on the other side, which work great to help you comb your brows and remove the sticky residue of your mascara.

However, most professionals are now using the spooley brush, which looks almost like a mascara. It's great for grooming and can also help you get rid of clumps on your brows if there are any.

7. Kabuki . Brush

The kabuki brush is a brush that closely resembles a powder brush, but it has denser bristles and is more squishy. This feature helps you to have a great foundation on the areas of skin you need.

You can use a kabuki brush to blend foundation and make makeup softer. And even when using makeup to create a shimmering effect on the cheekbones.

8. Blush brush


The cheek brush is definitely one of the most important brushes in your makeup arsenal. A good brush will help you achieve a more natural makeup look by helping to highlight the contours of your face.

Brushes made from natural hair are considered by makeup artists to be the best. The hair cuticles do a very good job of making the blush blend with the natural oils on the skin, from which the makeup is more natural, hiding skin imperfections.

9. Eyeliner brush

An eyeliner brush is a versatile tool. You can use it to insert the upper lash line for more dramatic eyes. You can also use it to moisten your eyes with eyeshadow, so your eyes will look much softer than when you just have no eyeliner.

In other words, you can use an eyeliner brush to apply eyeshadow to the crease of your eyelid with more precision. You should choose a type with stiff bristles, made from synthetic fibers so that the lines are always accurate. The threads should be strong against each other and the ends should form a perpendicular line.
