Look Pretty Flawless using the right Makeup Brushes

Applying makeup using the correct makeup brushes is very important. Even if you only apply one/or two products, you need makeup brushes that will help your makeup look smooth. Quality makeup brushes improve the final look of your makeup. They make the application and blending easier, and you end up having a smoother, well-done, and more attractive look.

Your makeup turns out better when you use quality brushes.

Quality makeup brushes will not only provide you with a flawless and picture-perfect makeup look, but they will also help maximize your favorite product’s full potential. How? You’ll be using less product than the usual.

Even the most experienced makeup artist in the world will have trouble doing makeup with cheaper brushes. You may actually be better at makeup than you think you are — if you use the right makeup brushes!

Good quality brushes will distribute the product more evenly, last longer, and (as long as you clean them correctly) will hold their shape well. Bad quality brushes often fall apart quickly, when applying the product will look more patchy and won’t blend evenly.

Makeup brushes are integral to achieving a flawless, airbrushed look that’ll help you face your day with extra confidence. However, the extensive selection of brushes available on the market can make the buying experience intimidating. There are so many options to choose from and the prizes make the overall choice so difficult.

As an Image Consultant, I found a set of makeup brushes that is cost-effective and includes all the brushes you need so that you will look flawless all day long.

You will find that every makeup artist has her own way of using makeup brushes.

The following brushes work for me:

How to use your 12 Makeup Bamboo Brushes:

Primer/Foundation Brush

Apply your primer using this brush and then apply your foundation to your skin using the same brush to create an extra smooth, dewy finish.

Powder Brush

This brush is important because you need a brush to evenly distribute powder across your skin. It should be large and very fluffy so that the color doesn’t get distributed in one specific spot, more like all over your skin. 


Using your eyeshadow brush, grab your favourite eyeshadow palette and apply your favorite base shade to your eyelid.

Eye crease Brush

This brush is for packing on color and applying shadow to your crease. This is a KEY brush in your collection. You need a brush that will add shadow well without spreading the powder all over the place, and you need a brush that will apply your shadow flawlessly.

The shadow in your crease is important because it is the first layer of skin-tone shadow you need to be able to blend your other colors on your eye without patchiness. If you place the color into the crease of your eye when your eyes are open, and work down toward the lash line. That way, you’ll never overshoot your crease or end up with messy lines.

Eye outer lid Brush

This style of brush is best for a darker color to be placed in the crease of your lid. It has longer bristles so you don’t push the product in too severely. I add mine in a Vshape until I get the desired result.

Dark colors attract light, so placing a darker tone of shadow in the crease of the eye makes your eyes pop by adding depth and dimension in the exact right spot.

Eye Inner corner/Middle of the eye Brush

Make your eyes pop by adding a shimmery eyeshadow directly in the middle of the eye. Add a pearly light color to the inner corner of the eye to brighten things up, too. Finish with a few coats of your favourite mascara and you’re good to go.

Brow bone/ Blending Brush

Depending on the look you’re going for, you can bring the base color all the way up to your brow bone in preparation for a more dramatic smoky eye, or you can stop at the crease of your eye for a basic, everyday look. Applying a shimmering colour to your brow bone will lift your overall appearance.

This brush can also be used for blending your makeup evenly. It’s important to always use a blending brush to blend your makeup to make sure you achieve a flawless appearance.

Underneath eye/ Eyeliner Brush

Eyeliner that’s applied correctly can make your lashes look thicker. If you’re not a huge fan of eyeliner, you can get a similarly impactful look with a darker eyeshadow. Use an angled flat brush to press the dark color along the edges of your upper eyelid where your eyelashes begin, and along the lower lash line.

Brows/Mascara Brush

Your brows are the most important part of your makeup routine. If you did microblading, powdered brows, or any other shaping of your brows, you’re good to go. If you didn’t do the above, then you need to make sure you apply colour and shape to your brows.

This brush works miracles when shaping and adding colour to your brows. You comb your brows upwards first before applying colour. You can even use the brush to apply mascara.

Contour Brush

This brush really makes it nice for focusing on a specific part of your face. I apply contour on my cheekbones and around the edges of my face to deepen my overall look.

Highlighter Brush

I like using a fluffy brush like this one for highlights as it allows me to really control where the highlight is placed.

Blusher Brush

I like a smaller brush for blush because I can center it on my cheekbones, and then softly diffuse the blush outwards. You need a blush brush. This brush should be loosely packed, fluffy, and soft. It should spread the blush across your face without sticking to your skin.

Lipstick Brush

Adding colour to your lips will contribute to your walk of confidence. Using a brush to apply your lip colour will make sure you apply colour to all the freckles on your lips. This is actually a precision brush but I use it to apply lipstick and it makes my lip-colour last longer.
