Makeup artist or not, brushes must be the best !
I remember when I was a little girl and I wanted to wear makeup, just like my mother did. First time I’ve discovered lipstick. Then the mascara (which was a major mystery for me with that odd brush). Later, when I was in high-school, the black liner and eye shadows. But, I had no makeup brushes to deal with.
In this article you find 8 basic makeup brushes, that every girl should have for a perfect day by day makeup look.
I’ve chosen to show you Make Up For Ever brushes, because they are professional, but useful even if you are not an makeup artist.
For foundation I recommend the flat brush, especially if you want medium to full coverage. You can apply the foundation, starting from the center of your face, gently tapping to the exterior. In this way, the brush will work best with your foundation.
If you prefer very light foundation, this makeup brush can make an airbrush effect. It’s preferable for lightweight textures(ex. Water Blend from Make Up For Ever, Dior Nude Air Skin, Lancome Air de Teint). I use this brush with simple , wide and circular movements.
This is the best powder brush in the world! All Make Up For Ever brushes are handmade, hair texture is soft and you can clean them really simple. If you don’t have enough time to wash your brushes between several makeup looks, you can try Instant Brush Cleanser from Make Up For Ever. You can use it with pressed powders and also with loose ones.
Blush and contouring brush
This amazing makeup brush contains both wavy and straight hairs , for a very good and smooth application of the blush. You can also use it for contouring powder.
If you are in love with the strobing trend , you will adore this makeup brush. It’s fluffy enough to blend evenly on face and does not leave too much product on your cheeks.
This angled eyeliner brush is very simple to use , even for beginners. It will help you be more precise in application and your ‘wings’ identical ! I recommend you using this makeup brush with a gel eyeliner.
Even if you have bushy brows, or you don’t have a desired shape of them, this brush will help you achieve a perfect shape. You can use it with powder for filling or a gel to structure them .
Hope you enjoy and find it useful !
