If you are a makeup junky you know how important brushes are when it comes to achieving great makeup. Great Tools are key for every artist!!! You can get color to deposit much better with proper brushes. Here is a breakdown of the brushes I use for all my makeup applications!…
Foundation/ Creme Blush Brush- Smashbox
This brush distributes and blends cremes perfectly across the skin.
Spot Concealer Brush- Laura Mercier
This brush is great for covering up blemishes or dark circles.
Under Eye Powder- Urban Decay
This is a blending brush, but I use it to set translucent powder under and around the eyes, its perfect. It’s also great for applying base eye shadow and blending out shadows.
Powder Brush- Smashbox
This brush is so soft, and I love the shape it dispenses powder evenly into the creases of the face. Love!
Blush Brush- Japonesque
Maybe the softest brush Ive ever used, I also love the shape of this brush, use it flat for the apples of the cheeks, turn it sideways to contour the cheekbones.
Eye Brow Brush- Bobbi Brown and MAC
Bobbi brush is more firm so you can get a super defined brow, the color will go on heavier, the MAC brush is thinner which is great for fine brows and eye liner.
Eye Shadow Crease Brush- Philosophy
I use this brush on every eye makeup I do, it fits perfectly into the crease and gives a soft blended crease, a must have!
Defined Crease Brush-Laura Mercier
This gives you a super defined crease, I’ve used this brush since day 1 of my makeup career, literally cannot live without it. It also gives the perfect smokey eye, smudge any shadow under the eye into lash line.
Eye Shadow Brush- MAC #239
This has recently become a new fav! I use this to apply eye shadow all over the eye lid, as well as smudge shadow or eye liner around the eye. This brush is synthetic so it can be used wet as well, great to wet eyeshadows and apply to lid or under eye concealer as well.
Eye Liner Brush- MAC 209/ Urban Decay Wonder Brush
The 209 brush makes applying winged eyeliner effortless. The Wonder Brush is called that because it does everything! Smudgy eyeliner, eye shadow and again this brush is synthetic so it is a great lip brush! Urban Decay has all synthetic brushes- No Animal Hair!
Lip Brush- Japonesque Retractable Lip Brush/ Smashbox Lip
Im so super picky with lip brushes, a tapered end is a must, and i like them to be semi firm and not flimsy. These are 2 favs. Its alwasy great to have a retractable brush to keep in your makeup bag!
and last but not least…
Smashbox Face & Body Brush #19- I use this for Body Makeup…AKA Carlene K Shine Bronzer. This is awesome for applying body bronzer or shimmer. If you don’t want to get lotion all over your hands, it fits into the curves and creases of your body. It is super firm so it deposits a lot of product quickly! Love!
Happy Shopping…… XOXO
