Brush Guide: Eye Edition
Posted on March 12, 2012 by Charmie Stryker
There are a lot of make up brushes out there and easy to feel overwhelmed. As makeup artists we’ve come across our share of brushes, some we use more than others. I wanted to create a guide of most commonly used brushes to help you distinguish between brushes you currently have or help you find brushes that will allow for desired effect. We’ll start with eye shadow brushes, and hopefully by the end of our brush guide series you’ll be a makeup brush wizard!
LID: Soft and dense perfect for packing color all over your lid. For more intense colors, you can wet your brush before dipping into the shadow.
Crease: Tapered tip sweeps perfectly in creases for smoky eye looks.
Precision: This brush is perfect for precise applications due to its size and shape. It’s perfect for applying shade to creases as well as along lash lines.
Blend: Sweep back and forth over lid to blend harsh lines and improve overall gradience.
Slanted Liner: This brush is very versatile, can be used as a brow brush to fill in sparse brows as well as to apply shadow, cream or gel along lash line.
Shader: Packs on shade while expertly blending eyeshadow, easily softening any harsh lines, for a professional, finished look.
Brow Brush & Comb: Perfect for lash separation and brow touch ups.
