Are You Using The Correct Makeup Brush?

There are many different makeup brushes, but do you know what each specific makeup brush is designed for? Well, obviously they all don’t serve the same purpose even though some may look a bit similar. A professional or experienced Makeup Artist will be able to tell exactly what each makeup brush is used for but if you aren’t a pro and are simply a newbie to the makeup world you might get a tad bit confused.

Using the appropriate makeup brush for its specific purpose will help you to create a perfect makeup look.

 

These are the makeup brushes you want to have in your makeup kit.

 

FOUNDATION BRUSH

As the name suggests this brush is used for applying foundation. Foundation brushes are either flat or rounded in shape. A flat foundation brush allows you to apply foundation in a “painting motion” while a rounded foundation brush allows you to apply foundation in a “buffing or circular motion” .

 

POWDER BRUSH

Makeup brushes are available in any beauty or cosmetic store. They range in prices and you also have the option of purchasing an entire kit which includes all the different brushes. If you are a newbie to the beauty scene, you might want to SAVE instead of SPLURGE on a makeup brush kit but if you know a thing or two about makeup and you are absolutely obsessed you might want to invest in a makeup brush kit that will last for a while.
