How to Use an Angled Eyeliner Brush
Makeup artists travel with an arsenal of brushes—but how many does the average woman actually need? today day this week, we bring you one multitasking tool worth investing in for your own kit.
Don’t be fooled by the name of JAF Angled Eyeliner Brush—this is a tool that can be used for more than tracing a rim of winged gel liner along your upper lashes. It’s perfect for anything that needs a straight edge,“For example, if you’re doing a red lip, you can apply concealer [around the border] with it to shape out the bottom. It’s like cheating your natural lip a little bit and it gives you a more finished look.” He also uses angled brushes to fill in eyebrows with powder or apply highlighter in “hard-to-reach places, like around the nose or in the corner of the eyes.” If you do actually plan on using it to apply eyeliner, however,advises that you hold the brush like a pencil, gripping it at the bottom instead of close to the bristles—which, somewhat counterintuitively, actually improves stability. With this technique, it’s easier to do a series of smaller, lighter strokes of pigment that you can build upon with control (rather than applying too much pressure and ending up with dark, jagged lines that are hard to clean up). Because after all, your makeup brush should work for you—not the other way around.
