How to use makeup brushes to get a perfect look
Choosing and using the right makeup brushes for the task at hand really does matter.
It starts with an even canvas, so to speak, which cannot be created without the right tools.
While it’s fun to think about creating a smoky eye or wearing a pop of bright pink blush, nothing looks good if the underlying complexion doesn’t.
The right makeup brushes are essential in achieving a flawless complexion. Follow these steps on how to use makeup brushes.
An even complexion is most often created with concealer and foundation. If you apply your concealer with your fingertips, you’re going to apply it to a much larger area than you actually need. This is why it’s so important to apply concealer with an appropriate concealer brush. It will place the concealer exactly where you want it.
After applying concealer, the next step is to apply foundation. Again, it’s important to use a makeup brush to apply foundation, instead of with the fingertips. You will use much less product and get a more even, streak-free finish.
If you choose to apply face powder after applying foundation, you should do so with a big, fluffy brush. This will ensure even distribution. You can use the brush to make sure you’re not using too much powder, by dusting away the excess.
This is the perfect time to apply blush. Using the appropriate brush (one that’s a bit smaller than your powder brush) will allow you to follow the natural contours of your face. It’s really almost impossible to apply powder blush without using a brush.
Now for the eyes… use a pair of tweezers to remove any stray hairs. Next, dip a stiff, angled brush into an eye shadow and apply to the tops of the brows. This will define the brows and fill in any sparse areas. Next, use a large eye shadow brush to apply a highlighter color from the lash line to the brow line.
If you use a gel formula eye liner, you’ll need an eye liner brush for its application. Use a smaller eyeshadow brush if you wish to apply a darker color on the eyelid. Coat the bottom and upper lashes with mascara.
Finally, use a lip brush to apply lip color. Using a lip brush will ensure a precise, even finish.I understand that makeup brushes may not be quite as exciting as a bright red lipstick, but they are crucial to achieving a polished appearance.
Now you know how to use makeup brushes this will help you speed up your morning beauty routine or anytime you want you put on makeup. Most importantly keep your makeup brushes clean and well-organized and they will serve you well, and remember to never share your makeup brushes
