Makeup can be daunting – makeup brushes can be even more daunting! Dot, angle, sector and outline – Which brush is used with cosmetics? Don’t worry, I am here to let you know everything you need for a makeup brush to survive in the big and terrible world of makeup.
1. Foundation Brush
The primary function of a foundation brush is to facilitate the smooth application of your base or foundation onto the skin. Using a brush of good quality makes all the difference in the world. Opting for a wrong brush can make you appear cakey and washed over. A high-quality foundation brush will allow you to blend the foundation out smoothly so that you can buff the product into the skin, giving it the most natural look.
This is another brush that you can use for your base. While the foundation brush helps you to get the product onto the skin smoothly, the stippling brush gives you an airbrushed look. If you carefully observe the brush, you would see that the ends of the brush are very light and feathery when compared to the base.
3.Angled Blush Brush
An angled blush brush enables the precise application of the blush. The angled shape of the brush allows it to pick up the product and dust it onto the cheeks ever so softly so that it looks natural.
4. Angled Brush
An angled brush has multiple uses. It can be used for brows and eyeliner. The angled shape of the brush helps to fill in eyebrows in the shape of your choice. The sharp ends also make it convenient to draw out a killer winged liner.
Sigma came up with a short, stiff brush that is cut at just the right angle to assist you in making your brows look perfect. A brush like this gives you complete control of how you want your brows to look.
5.Highlight Fan Brush
The bristles in a fan brush are specifically designed for highlighters. The bristles are spread out so that the brush picks up a small amount of the product. It is then slightly dusted on the top of the cheekbones and other areas of the face that need to be highlighted. It is best to go in with a light hand to avoid using too much product.
