Brushology

  
Being a MUA I find myself collecting a lot of brushes. But which brushes are needed for your everyday look? These brushes are a necessity for beginners and professionals. 

Foundation Brush~ this is your basic foundation brush. You apply with a back and forth motion, mimicking brush strokes. This brush gives you a light to medium coverage. Stippling Brush~ dab in product, then swirl in circular motions to blend giving you full coverage. The Beauty Blender~ is meant to be used damp. Use water, MAC Fix+, or any comparable product. Tapping the product onto the skin gives you a light coverage. You can dap more product on problem areas to build coverage.  Of the 3, I prefer to use the stippling brush. I prefer full coverage. And I love how it doesn’t give me a cakey face look.   

 
Concealer Brush~ I use this brush for under eye circles and blemishes. Dab the product onto the problem areas and use the tip of the brush to blend out the product.  

 Powder Brush~ this brush can be used for both loose and pressed powders. I use this brush for light coverage. Kabuki Brush~ lightly press and swirl for full even coverage. Powder Puff~ used apply powder over a large area. Press the powder onto your face to lock your foundation into place. I use the powder puff to press my foundation and use the kabuki brush to evenly blend out my powder.  

 
Flat Eyeshadow Brush~used to apply eyeshadow on your eyelid. Use in a patting motion to pack it on.  

 
Eyeshadow blending brush~ used to blend eyeshadows together. Use in a sweeping back and forth motion to diffuse and erase any lines of demarcation  

 
Blush Brush~ used to apply blush to the apples of your cheeks. Smile! ☺️

  1. Great post. I use my beauty blender when I’m going for an everyday natural look, and my stipling brush for a more ‘done up’ look 🙂
