Different Types Of Makeup Brushes And Their Uses
Girls, you can wear any type of makeup but without having right kind of tools you’re never going to do the flawless makeup. As makeup brushes can create a flawless finish or a face-transforming arched brow. As there are many types of makeup brushes available in the market so it is very much important to know about the use of each and every makeup brush.
1. Foundation Brush
These types of makeup brushes are designed to achieve a smooth and flawless finish, the bristles are tightly packed with a tapered tip for fluid application.
2. Beauty Blender
This is not a brush, but it’s equally as important. You can use it to apply foundation and cream blush as well as to blend concealer and layer blushes and cream bronzers.
3. Stippling Brush
This brush is for applying foundation and cream blush (and body makeup if you wish). It will allow you to really buff the product, blending it together seamlessly with the skin.
4. Buffing Brush
This is a brush which is very dense and close together. Blending with this brush is very easy so you can use it with your foundation or sometimes bronzers(it’s a secret)
5. Kabuki Brush
This big brush is perfect for softly applying bronzers and powders, and for evenly distributing product across your face or body.
6. 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 color and distribute flawlessly onto the skin. Load your brush with the powder and shake away any excess before sweeping onto the skin.
7. Contour Brush
Contouring is giving shape to an area of the face and enhancing the facial structure through makeup. It makes amazing ones that fit into the contours of the face perfectly when applying powder, and along the cheekbones for blush.
8. Blusher Brush
It is designed to give a soft flush of color to cheekbones, as well as a healthy glow to the apples of cheeks. This brush is cleverly cut to neatly pick up your blusher shade that gonna enhance your cheekbones.
9. Concealer Brush
Use a synthetic brush to apply concealer. It will get perfectly into all the small nooks and crannies around your eye and nose.
10. Eyebrow Spoolie Brush
Ideal for taming unruly hairs, the stiff bristles smooth and comb eyebrows into form. When shaping, use to brush hairs upwards and trim the excess for neatly groomed brows.
11. Slanted Eyebrow Definer Brush
Used to define and fill brows for a beautifully symmetrical appearance. The bristles are stiff and angled for precise control. Apply powder, liquid or cream in short strokes mimicking the hairs, fill sparse areas, shape and elongate for a perfect brow.
12. Angled Eyeliner Brush
This brush works in two very convenient ways. First, you can use it to apply gel eyeliner and create a perfectly lined or cat eye. Second, you can use it to achieve a strong eyeliner look using eye shadow by dipping the brush in water before applying.
13. Fine Point Eyeliner Brush
The extra fine tip of this brush delivers precise liquid and gel eyeliner application. A perfect line can be achieved in one stroke, or use the point to dot in between lashes for a more subtle effect.
14. Flat Eye-shadow Brush
Large, flat, short and brimming with bristles for excellent coverage. The soft bristles have a beveled edge for a smooth application without ‘dragging’ the eyelid. Use to apply all over color.
15. Blending Eye-shadow Brush
Use this light brush to blend eye colors and to highlight the brow bone.
16. Domed Eye-shadow Brush
This type of brush will allow you to get more specific with your eye-shadow placement. Rather than blending and creating a wash like the above brush, this is great for applying stronger color on both the top and bottom lids. It should also be your go-to brush for applying a shimmery shadow to the inner corner of your eye.
17. Smudge Eye-shadow Brush
This is essential when creating a smokey eye. First, apply eyeliner at the root of the lashes, then use this brush to smudge. The short, stiff bristles will allow you to embed the product right into the lash line and get that “slept in” look.
18. Lip Brush
The sculpted tip of a lip brush is perfect for achieving a flawless line. The bristles are short and firm for controlled application.
19. Fan Brush
Created for use with loose powder, the fine fan sweeps a light dusting of powder onto the skin for a soft, velvety effect. This application technique avoids heavy coverage which can highlight fine lines and imperfections. These types of makeup brushes are also used to remove excess powder on the face, particularly after eye-shadow application.
