When starting to learn about makeup and how to apply, the idea of the amount of brushes and sponges available can be overwhelming. Here’s a rundown of a few basic brushes that are good to have when starting to learn:
Powder Brush Soft, full and rounded, this brush can be used for both compact powder and bronzer. The bristles pick up the perfect amount of colour and distribute flawlessly onto the skin. Load your brush with the powder and shake away any excess before sweeping onto the skin.
Eyeshadow Brush Large, flat, short and brimming with bristles for excellent coverage. The soft bristles have a bevelled edge for a smooth application without ‘dragging’ the eyelid. Use to apply all over colour.
Flat Eyeliner Brush Allows eyeliner to be applied deep into the lash line for a richer and more distinct eye. Gently brush upwards to soften and blend the line for a smokey eye.
Foundation Brush Designed to achieve a smooth and flawless finish, the bristles are tightly packed with a tapered tip for fluid application. Dampen the brush first in warm water and firmly squeeze the excess into a towel or tissue, this will help achieve a more even distribution. You can also blend any brush strokes as you go with a damp natural or wedge sponge.
Makeup Sponges are used in particular for cosmetically beauty purposes, for applying cream make-up or foundation. Also helpful to remove excess foundation.
Very important to remember: If you want your brushes to last and your skin to stay healthy, wash your brushes often! There are soaps specifially for cleaning your makeup brushes!
