Happy Friday y'all! Squeezing in this FMF blog post before I go to a meeting. The question is from Fatima:
Hi Ms. Martha!
Can you write about the different kinds of eye brushes and how to use them? Thank you very much!
Thanks for this wonderful question. There are TONS of eyeshadow brushes out there and it will take me the whole day to write about them so I'll just write about the main eyeshadow brushes that people use; besides, the other brushes are just slight improvements of these and they just differ in size and length.
The main brush that you'll see in a majority of makeup brush sets. This brush is for depositing color on the lids; doesn't have a lot of use other than that so I suggest choose a brush set that does not feature a lot of this.
Tapered Blending Brush
If you're going to ask me, if you can only own one eyeshadow brush, this is it. It can do everything: deposit, blend, shade, shape, and create color gradation on your lids.
Wet/Dry Eyeshadow Brush
Just a regular eyeshadow brush, but can do even more tasks: this can be used dry and wet, and it won't lose its shape; can be used on cream shadow too.
Angled Shading Brush
For creating fake creases on crease-less eyes.
A precise eyeshadow brush for creating color effects/gradation; it is also used to create sharp lines on the lids.
For applying eye liner on monolids and even tightlining.
For shaping and sculpting the brows.
For applying gel liner; most advanced makeup enthusiasts and artists prefer this, the bent eyeliner brush, more than the straight one because its shape aids in creating more precise lines.
For grooming and spreading product on the brows, and combing and separating lashes.
For applying concealer on the under eyes and spot concealing.
Did I miss anything? Let me know! Hope you learned from this post. :)
