For working with shadows, professionals have a special cosmetic case for eye makeup brushes. In everyday life, all of them are not needed. But you should still have a few ones to get the best possible results.
Types of eye makeup brushes and their use
They differ in width and length, shape and function. Here are the most popular types of accessories and their use:
A tool with a wide flat bristle, slightly larger than the little finger, is perfect for applying the base colour. It evenly distributes the shade throughout the lids.
A large, flat one is designed for application of colouring formulas to the moving eyelid.
Shadows can be applied to the outer corners with a small flat bristle tool.
The thin bevelled head allows drawing perfect arrows.
The pencil-like accessory is used by professionals to fill the space between the lashes with shadows.
The fan-shaped one allows getting rid of the crumbling cosmetics with one stroke.
Before you purchase a collection of eye makeup brushes, you should get acquainted with their variety and which ones are really necessary.
Three most common types of accessories
Most classic looks can be made with as little as three basic tools, which, with proper care, will last for years.
The flat one is the versalite tool. With its help, you can quickly apply the composition to the moving lid. Its pile is densely packed, and the accessory’s shape is rectangular with sharp or a bit bevelled edges.
The barrel eye makeup brushes often come in handy for both amateurs and professionals. It is perfect for distributing the shadows along an orbital line. Here is how to use such a tool: pick up the cosmetics on it, shake off the excess, apply it to the crease of the upper lid and distribute it moving from the outer corner to the inner one.
With fluffy eye makeup brushes, you can enjoy all the benefits of soft, smoky shading. To soften the contours after using other tools, use a fluffy one to trace the contour of the cosmetics application several times and blend the lines.
How to choose it and take care of it
Eye makeup brushes for dry compositions should be made of natural bristles or high-tech synthetic ones that fully replicate the characteristics of natural bristles. This is because the natural pile easily picks up dry textures, easily "gives" them to the skin, and shades them softly.
In order for the bristles to accurately convey the cosmetics, after each use, we recommend you to clean the tool with a dry cloth – the pigment that gets stuck in a pile can spoil all your efforts. A weekly shower of the accessory will help get rid of bacteria that can pass from the hair to the eyelid and cause infection.
