The 5 Makeup Brushes You Should Own & How To Use Them


There are probably more makeup brushes than you can count just lying around your bathroom. But it’s likely that you stick to the same two or three to put on your foundation, eyeshadow and blush (no judging here). We often spend lots of money on fancy makeup brush collections that end up collecting dust all because we sometimes prefer to get things done with our hands.Here are the five most needed makeup brushes.

 

1Traditional foundation brush: A large-sized brush that is flat and firm.

“When most women use foundation brushes, they tend to drag it against their face in long strokes and this creates that streaky look. Then they get frustrated after paying for this brush and it goes straight to the makeup graveyard. Instead, you should use a foundation brush with stippling or tapping motions to create a more even and natural-looking finish.


2. Powder/blush brush: A medium-sized brush that isn’t too large and preferably designed for dual use.

3Small round brush: A dome-shaped brush that makes blending easy.

This type of brush is perfect to paint into the creases and to define the shape of your eyes. Be sure to start with very little shadow and build your way up to your desired finish

 

4. An angled brush: A slanted-shaped brush that offers maximum control.

5A fluffy brush: A brush that can be used on the entire face, yet small enough to add softness to the eyelids.
