Makeup Brushes And Application All About Makeup
“The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.”
Hey, lovelies! We looked at the basic products needed to start your makeup journey. This week we are going to look at the different types of brushes and makeup application. I hope you find this information helpful.
Introduction to make brushes
Makeup has a vast array of brushes and tools you have to choose from can feel overwhelming at first. Albeit just like makeup, you do not need to own one of absolutely everything out there. When it comes to brushes and application tools, quality is far more important than quantity. For example, two sizes of eye shadow brushes with well-made bristles and sturdy handles are better than eight sizes of brushes with scratchy or ineffective bristles.
Before you buy, you should know the basics about brush construction to ensure you know what to look for and what makes a good selection. The best way to test the overall quality of the brush is to run the bristles over your hand and see how they feel as they glide over your skin. Also, run your fingers through the bristles to see how they feel the entire way down. The handles are secure.

Synthetic bristles are the best choice for use with any creamy type makeup, such as cream shadows, cream blush, cream foundation or concealer. They also work well for applying lip colour, gel liners, and liquid liners. Synthetic bristles are more rigid and hold their shape better than natural bristles. This means they offer more control when applying creamy, gel, or liquid makeup. Synthetic bristles also allow for a more precise application of carefully drawn liners or shapes.

However, take utmost care when using synthetic eye or face brushes. Test them carefully on your skin and be sure the provide the blending, powder-grabbing, and comfortable feel you need to use them in a professional makeup application setting.
For those of you opposed to animal testing, you can look for products with labelling such as the International Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (ICCIC) or “Marley” products which are vegan. “Oink-eared bunny” associated with PETA–People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
