Know Your Brushes for Professional Quality Eye Makeup
This list of essential eye makeup brushes can go a long way in helping you with DIY eye makeup!
- Fluffy Eye Shadow Brush– This is the brush with which you can deposit your medium toned ‘shadow’ color on the eye lids. It also works as an emergency blending brush!
- Blending Brush– Harsh lines don’t look good and it is a challenge for even professional eye makeup artist to blend away those lines to perfect smoothness. A blending brush can help you work wonders.
- Crease Brush- The crease area is narrow, and so a crease brush with a narrower tip is necessary to deposit darker eye shadow colors in it.
- Angled Eyeliner Brush-The flat and fine contact points and the angled edge of these brushes help to apply liquid or cream eye liners and make great wings.
- Eyebrow Spoolie– Neglecting the eyebrows isn’t advised! An eyebrow spoolie helps to tame eyebrow hair and makes it looked more filled up! It also doubles up to fine tune your eye lashes after applying mascara.
