Beauty Basic: 5 Essential Eye Brushes

12:04 AM

Hello Beauty!

I am back with beauty basic: 5 Essential Eye Brushes. When I started building up my make up collection, eye brushes was something that I keep add to my collection every now and then. But through out the years, I came to a conclusion that although eyes is not the biggest part of our face, in a matter of size, but it definitely takes the need of brushes the most. 

I know for some of you to buy eye brushes could be overwhelming because there are so many type and shape to pick! So in this post I want to share with you all what I know about 5 type of brushes that you are going to need when you are just starting in make up. So lets hop in!

1. Eyeshadow Brushes: 
This is the most basic eyeshadow brush you could ever own . The shape of this brush is a bit flat and has a dense bristle which is perfect to pick up color and pat it all over you lid. This brush is also versatile because you can use it for smudging and putting color on the crease or brow bone. 

2. Blending Brush:
One of the most important step in creating eye make up is to blend the eyeshadow, and for that we need a specific brush, the Blending Brush. This brush is fluffy and soft because it's designed to be used back and forward  to blend colors on  our lid. For this brush I recommend you to get at least two brushes so when one is dirty, you can always have a spare clean blending brush . And a clean blending brush is a key for a creating eye look

3. Crease Brush:
At first I didn't understand the function of this brush. But after a while, I realize that you need a certain shape of brush to put color on your crease. If I use Eyeshadow Brush the result will look a bit harsh on my crease because the flat edge of the brush (unless I want to make a cut crease look). And if I use the Blending Brush, the amount of color that could be transferred t is poor since the brush is so fluffy. Crease Brush is perfect because its thickness is halfway between Eyeshadow Brush and Blending Brush, and with the dome shape, we could achieve a perfect seamless look

4. Angled Liner
This brush can do so many thing for our eye look. Putting liner, putting color under lid, filling the eye brow, creating cut crease look, and etc. For putting liner this brush is perfect for gel texture. 

5. Pointed Liner
Another must have brush for liner. You can use this for liquid or gel liner. For me, sometimes I use it for putting color in my inner eye area as a highlight. This brush will do a perfect job to create a look that need more precision. So if you want to create a look with a crazy liner thingy going on, this is the brush that you will reach for. 

So that's my top 5 essential brushes for eyes, I am sure it's different for everybody but I remember these brushes were the ones that reached for the most back then and still do. At the end of the day, I have to agree with a saying " to reach a perfect look we need the perfect brush"

Hope you find this post is helpful and I'll see you in my next time.
