The contouring technique has long been mastered by ordinary girls, who still use professional accessories. Good contour brushes in the right hands can transform facial features beyond recognition, highlighting cheekbones and masking skin imperfections. Experts recommend buying a special set of different cosmetics that will provide a natural result.
Types and purpose of different contour brushes
Different cosmetics require a different method of application. What basic accessories can be used to sculpt the face? Here they are:
If you constantly use the contouring technique, we recommend buying a set of special contour brushes because each of them is suitable for one specific function. If you rarely do this, then you can limit yourself to one medium-sized universal tool.
A voluminous bevelled accessory is used to apply powder blush and bronzer. It allows to evenly apply the product under the cheekbones and blend the edges for a natural, skinny look.
Straight Kabuki is suitable for applying liquid or creamy bronzer to the cheekbones. Apply it in hammering movements using straight cut kabuki. This will make the look, firstly, as expressive as possible, and secondly, very persistent. Also, with this accessory, you can properly blend the product so that the boundaries of its application are not visible.
The tool with tapered bristles allows drawing in detail the face features and shade the transitions from light to dark.
The contour brushes with a flat bevelled bristle allow to draw the line of the nose and adjust its shape and are the most versatile tool for this purpose.
A voluminous and fluffy fan accessory is what you need to apply a highlighter without excess. The cosmetics must be collected in a small amount: this will help avoid an unnatural result. Use the tool to spread the highlighter over the ridge of the cheekbone, above and below the eyebrow.
The classic options are bevelled and straight-cut contour brushes, preferably densely packed with a pile. Due to this, any texture will be shaded in the best way.
How to choose
Is a natural or synthetic pile better? The first one is good for creating a thin coating, and the second one is good for a thicker layer of corrective cosmetics. It is important to pay attention to the condition of the bristles in the contour brushes:
the hairs must be securely fixed and not fall out when pressed;
soft bristles will not irritate the skin;
the tapered tip and bevelled edge are recommended for beginners.
