The Makeup Artist’s Secrets Revealed on Makeup Brushes

Make up brushes

I remember when I was younger, getting my makeup done by a professional make up artist (before I became that girl).. .the one with lots of brushes galore in an ever expanding make up kit (or rather a suitcase being a more up-to-date and accurate description!)

I sat there thinking how does she know which brush to use and for which part of the face?! But, wind the tape on some years… when you’ve applied makeup to a few thousand faces… you have your own ground rules..

Makeup Brushes are so important in the application of make up. Just like a decorator has his set of paint brushes and rollers and a builder has his power tools to finish the job properly, so does a makeup artist have their special brushes.

But it’s not only the professional who can benefit from make up brushes. All girls should have a good set of brushes to achieve good results. Make up will glide on so much more beautifully and it will last longer than the sticky finger application!

I’m not a fan of sponges as they absorb far too much product. This means that the foundation sinks into the sponge and leaves nothing for the skin! Not only a huge waste but it’s very drying to sweep a sponge across the face.

Try a foundation brush. I can honestly say that everyone that sits in my make up chair sees the amazing results of a good foundation applied with a foundation brush! I have converted many lovers of sponges and their fingers to the foundation brush! My favourite foundation brush?

Becca foundation brush is my all time favourite!… you just can’t go wrong!”

So where do the other makeup brushes come in!? A big round blusher brush is a must for the make up bag! Sweep it all round the face for a bronzed warm glow! Dust off a little of the product on the back of your hand or swirl it around the wrist to get the initial dusty bronzer off, then apply to the cheeks, down the nose (lightly!) and down the neck and chest area for all over colour.

Do you find it hard to draw an eyeline straight? Get yourself a flat angled brush…the shape is done for you!

How do you get the gorgeous smokey eye? Smokey means lots of blending! So get a soft round big eye shadow blending brush. Estee Lauder do one and they call it the blending brush…. You will never struggle on a smoke again!!

Just blend around the eye socket and let the brush do the work!

The lip brush? For the professional make up artist, you have to use a lip brush…for precise application and hygiene! But to be honest! shhhhhh! I know if its your own lipstick you’ll apply it straight from the lipstick! Sweep it around the lips and pout ladies! If you gloss, then most glosses come with the brush in built! Which I recommend. Glosses = sticky!
