This brush is used for the blending of your skin tone throughout the whole face. It also provides for smooth and even coverage for a foundation application. There are all types of foundation brushes, but remember: you don’t have to spend an excessive amount of money on brushes. Buying all the tools you need doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to achieve the look you are going for.
This brush will be used for your eye shadow palettes. Shadow brushes are needed to apply those natural, wild and bold colors to the inner or outer lids and to the creases of your eyes. This is a great brush to have for an everyday natural look. Not to mention this brush can also help you take a step outside of the box with a dramatic smokey eye, ombre or to add some sparkle to your look. PABPG loves that this brush can be used for some a variety of versatility, and is perfect for blending a few different colors in to one glamorous look!
This brush is the best brush to use for adding a highlight color to those cheekbones, and making you look rosy and awake! The blush brush makes it easy to apply just the right amount of blush you desire without going overboard. You should be mindful that a little goes along way. You should focus on the apples of your cheeks for a subtle color appearance.
The liner brush is for outlining desired areas such as brows, eyes or lips. The precision of this brush allows for an even line when in use. It is similar to a small painting brush, thus giving you perfect accuracy when lining any part of the face. The brush is also so thin that it gives you free range to getting some versatility with thin and thick lines when it comes to framing the eyes and brows.
Last but not least, you need to set your face with the finishing powder by using this brush. This brush blends anything you may have missed while applying your make up. The soft bristles from the brush will give you a smooth and even coverage to the entire face. The large powder brush is a great brush to have in your make up bag at ALL times!
As long as you have a foundation, blush, shadow, liner and powder brush, you will have the essentials for flawless make up. Find brushes that are suitable for you. Start with the essentials, then venture out to try some other brushes. Sometimes there will be trial and error but it’s apart of the make up process. It may be a process, but you have to go broke for beauty. There are always affordable tools that are also good in quality! If you have brushes that you would love to share just comment below.
