Exactly like any type of painting, the success in wearing a perfect facial makeup
greatly relies on the tools one uses to apply the colors. Some women are still used to
using their bare fingers to apply cosmetics. However, appropriately using makeup
brushes will certainly bring you a pleasant surprise.
The most common one among the makeup brushes that should be present in every
woman's makeup brush set is the powder brush. It is usually the largest among the set,
with the function of evenly applying loose powder on the face. Twirling and upward
strokes of this powder brush against the face will help you to avoid uneven caking of
the powder on the skin.
A foundation brush has flat but soft bristles and is used to apply cream based or liquid
foundation. A soft foundation brush may be naturally made from sable fur, but more
often from a smooth, washable synthetic material.
As far as the author is concerned, an ideal blusher blush should have a full head of
slightly tapered brushes for even and natural distribution of blush pigments. The small
brushes in the blusher cases which are provided by the producers are often too hard
bristled that they pick up more pigments than necessary. Too much blusher will ruin
your makeup. Naturally blend the blush pigment into the skin tone by upwardly
sweeping the blusher blush from the highest point of cheek bone, and then mound up
to the hairline.
Concealer brushes are specially made for concealer application. Since concealers are
being used to cover and modify skin imperfections such as skin discoloration,
pimples, rough edges, and black rims of eyes, they should come in the right form and
weight. A tapered square head with flat firm brushes is the appropriate concealer
brush to be used under the eye area, in order to conceal the dark contour. Tapered,
round brushes on the other hand should be used to conceal blemishes in other facial
zones. Concealer brushes should have long brushes, so as to have flexibility in under
the eye makeup application; on the other hand, they should have the right weight to
place the right pressure without straining the hands. Dab the dark spot with the
concealer, using the brushes, and then blend well using precise, short strokes.
A medium sized eye shadow brush is most suitable for a multi purpose function. Use
the side part, ie, the bigger part to apply lighter color across the entire eyelid area and
the tip edge with heavier color to define the eyelid crease. Do not forget to blend and
sweep to achieve a harmonious skin tone hue.
An eyebrow brush will take care of the final touches of defining the brows.
Remember our suggestion: look naturally pretty without the feeling of being too
cosmetically or artificially made up with the help of the best makeup brushes. Perfect
tools can always help one to get success.
