Looking at my vanity, I have bins of all my favorite products. All tucked in specific areas. I even go as far as arranging the bins in what order I use the products when doing my makeup. I know, I know I have a problem. But, all those products don’t really mean much if you don’t have the right tools! When I first started playing with makeup, I had 3 cheap brushes that I found in those little Christmas makeup gift packs you’d get every year. Slowly, as I became
more aware of the importance of brushes and tools, I built up my collection. The brushes I have range from a variety of brands, both high end and drugstore. I must admit, buying brushes is a little daunting. Sizes and shapes and densities, oh my! Don’t worry girl, I got you. Now, when you’re scrolling through the internet and see that perfectly defined cut crease (Lord have mercy), you’ll know exactly what brush to reach for in order to achieve that same dimension. Woo! Keep in mind, although these are the brushes I suggest using for certain things, you can use them however you see fit! Makeup has no rules.
Foundation brush: Your primary face brush. I find a short, synthetic, dense brush works best for dispersing foundation. These brushes will not suck up product causing you to use more. Also, a brush with shorter bristles will apply a much fuller coverage compared to a brush with longer bristles because the longer bristles will suck up product and give you a more sheer coverage. It is all a matter of preference on that end though. Pictured: Elf Ultimate Blending Brush
Concealer brush: Use this brush to apply concealer to your undereyes, any blemishes, or other areas you feel you want to conceal. A short, synthetic bristled brush will allow for easy application and blending. Pictured: Sephora PRO Airbrush ConcealerContinue Reading
