Tutorial on Makeup Brushes

In this article, i'm going to summarize out all the information about makeup brushes. When buying a makeup brush sets, it is important to feel the quality of the fibres the brushes are make of..especially those who have sensitive skins..There are many types of makeup brush and each of them having different functionality. Most of us don't have any idea which brush to use when it came to applying foundation, eye shadow, contouring..etc...Hope the information below help you all find the right brush during Makeup.

From here, i'll go one by one on what is the function of each different brush.
1) In order to get a natural flawless look and no heavy weight of the foundation on your skin, it is recommended to use a foundation brush. There are two types of foundation brush ( Brush for liquid form and Brush for Powder form). To apply liquid type of foundation, choose the brush which have more bristle and compact where for power type of foundation, you can choose brush which are soft and loose. This brush can also be used for blusher brush.

2) Contouring brush usually have an angled round shape and appear to be a bit loose like powder foundation brush.It is used for cheek contouring to shape and sculpt your face.

3) There are quite few size of shader brush. Shader brush is use to apply and blending of eye shadow. Usually if we buy a large makeup brush set such as 24 pcs, it will have 3 to 4 types of shader brush with different size and shape. However each of them having quite similar functionality.

Some of us don't know which brush to use, that we use the normal shader brush to apply for lower lid causing quite a mess especially if the eye shadow is dark color, we end up with "panda" eyes.

5) Most of the eyeliner gel come with an eyeliner brush. It is use to draw a precise and even line. The eyeline brush can also be use on liquid type eyeliner product. There're two types of liner brush, a straight tipped liner brush and bent liner brush. Both can be use to apply eyeliner but some find straight tipped liner brush tend to block your view when you applying the liner whereas for bent liner brush, we have better view of what you are drawing.

6) After applying all the foundation and eyeshadows, sometimes we have fallen eyeshadow on our face, this is when we use the fan brush. Fan brush takes off or dust off fallen eyeshadow from our face.
