My Go-To Makeup Brushes!

, / 132 0

Brushes are such a BIG part of makeup and their existence or absence can cause a tremendous amount of difference in the quality of your final makeup look. I personally love my makeup brushes. I got a whole set of Morphe brushes recently and ever since then, I have fallen in love with them. I remember when I was a makeup newbie, I didn’t have any brushes and I would just use those small eyeshadow applicators. But now, when I’ve actually started to use proper makeup brushes, I can see what a huge difference it creates in your look and that is brilliant. The quality and type of brushes matter a lot.

So today I’m going to be telling you guys about my makeup brushes that I use in my daily routine and they are the ones I absolutely cannot live without.

Foundation Brush

There are two types of foundation brushes i.e the flat foundation brush and the stippling foundation brush.

I like to use another kind of brush to apply foundation, which is also called a bronzer brush and it looks like this:

According to me, there is no hard and fast rule in makeup so you can use whatever suits you wherever you want. I absolutely prefer using this brush rather than any other foundation brush or a beauty blender because it evenly distributes the foundation and buffs it out amazingly.

Powder Brush

This is a pointed foundation brush similar to a flat foundation brush, but pointed. I use this to apply powder on my under-eye area after I’m done applying concealer. I also use it to bake my face and it helps me create a sharp contour line. A powder brush is essential for me because I use it to set my foundation, concealer and also bake my face, but it also helps give me a matte and fair look after all the tanning the bronzer/contour does to my face.

Blusher Brush

Alright, so there can be two types of blusher brushes i.e round blusher brush and an angled blusher brush.

The more firm the bristles of the blusher brush are, the more product it will apply.

I personally don’t like using the angled blush brush, so I use the smaller version of a powder brush which looks like:

I like this brush for blush because it is the right size for the apples of my cheeks and doesn’t spread the blush too much over my face.

Contour Brush

Like blusher brushes, contour brushes can also be round or angled.

I like using the angled blusher brush in my set for contouring my face. I simply add the contour with a stick and then blend it out with this angled brush:

The angle of this brush makes it so easy for me to buff my contour and blend it out, giving it a really perfect finish.

Eyeshadow Blending Brush

I use this to pick up eyeshadow and apply as well as blend it out in the crease of my eye. I love how it blends out all the harsh lines that are formed by applying eyeshadow. The key to a smooth eye look is flawless blending.

I use these brushes basically all the time and I totally love them. They are vegan brushes and quite soft and easy to use. If any of you wants to start practicing makeup or is a beginner, I would recommend using a few brushes like these to learn. Practice does make perfect and that’s how I’m here today. So don’t give up and just keep trying, that’s how you’ll learn. I hope this article was helpful for you guys, especially all those who want to learn.

Note: I got this brush set online from Morphe, for about $50, which is pretty good.
