Makeup brushes are an essential part of creating flawless makeup that helps you start your day with confidence. There are a wide variety of brushes available on the market, each with a different shape, size, and purpose. Researching all types of makeup brushes can be challenging at times, but don't worry; these ten brushes from BK are some of the most classic and useful brushes for all your makeup needs. And we'll share exactly what they're for and how to use them.
- Foundation brush
Foundation is the essence of makeup, and a good foundation brush is critical for a flawless look. First, use your fingers to pat the foundation onto your forehead, cheeks, chin, and nose. Then use the foundation brush to apply the foundation evenly over your face. It's usually easier to start in the middle of the face and then apply it outward. Please note that if you need more, you can layer on small amounts for a longer-lasting foundation.
2. Concealer brush
Like foundation brushes, concealer brushes can help create a flawless base for the rest of your makeup. It's smaller and can more accurately cover smaller imperfections in areas such as under the eyes, around the mouth, or the nose. Use the tip of the brush to take a small amount of concealer, and then use the brush to gently tap the area you want to cover, such as pimples, blemishes, and dark circles under the eyes. Once the area is covered, blur the edges while being careful not to rub off the rest of the concealer.
3. Powder brush
The powder brush is light and fluffy and can set makeup in large areas. To use a powder brush for foundation, dip the brush into the powdered product, lightly shake the brush to shake off any excess loose powder, and then swipe or dab any areas that need to be set. The setting powder helps to hold concealer and foundation in place.
A contour brush is typically a medium-sized, angled brush used to shape and enhance the contours of the face. Dip the brush into contour powder and gently glide the brush back and forth underneath the cheekbones or along the jawline, weakening the edges to draw a natural contour.
- Blush brush
An angled blush brush enables a better application of blush. Starting from the area near your nose, sweep the blush outward and slightly upward in a gentle movement, focusing on the cheekbone areas. Blush adds color and makes you look fresh.
- Highlighting brush
The final step in your face makeup look is to create a subtle glow or shimmery effect with a highlighter, which you can apply to your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin.
- Eyeshadow brush
Dip the brush into the eyeshadow and apply it to the eyelid and upper eye area, starting at the inner corner of the eyelid and sweeping the color towards the edges for a silkier, more even blending effect.
- Eye Smudge Brush
This brush is generally used to dab the darker colors from the eyeshadow palette and apply them to the end of the eye or the liner area near the base of the lashes. Anyway, with its help, it can make the eye makeup color more layered and defined.
- Angled eyeshadow brush
Angled brushes are more flattering to the skin at the corners of the eyes. Sweep the transition color (a lighter color than the base color) lightly in the eye socket for a more natural transition between dark and light colors.
- Detail brush
The detailing brush provides a more accurate and refined way to paint the key areas of the eye. It applies color with precision and is great for controlling the extent of makeup application.
