Today I’m going to give you a little sneak peek into the make up brushes that I find best to use for certain parts of the beauty routine. These brushes in particular come from only two brands: Real Techniques (which are basically Holy Grail) and Zoeva.
The brushes I have picked work best for the processes I pick out below, but this is more than likely a very personal preference. Many people will use brushes for the purpose written on their shiny little handles but NOT ME, rebel central.
Here we go…
If you fill your eyebrows in with eyeshadow, one of my top picks for brushes is the Zoeva 317 Wing Liner brush. This is the perfect width and is ideal for getting a precise arch on your brows. Also, the sturdiness of the brush means that you can hold the brush and flick upwards to create the front of your brow.
Best for…FOUNDATION OR CONCEALER
The Real Techniques Stippling Brush (above centre) is the FIRST ever make up brush that I bought myself. The colour on my handle has faded from the sun light now but the brush still performs the best at applying light foundation and buffing in concealer around the face. Using circular motions to work the product into your skin gives a flawless finish and it’s a great shaped handle which makes it easy to work with.
I love the Real Techniques Multitask Brush, I have two so I use one for bronzer and the other for blush or powder. When used with a light hand, this is perfect for building up product slowly to make sure that you don’t go overboard. It’s as soft as you like and it washes and dries great, plus after it looks as good as when you first bought it.
Best for…UNDER EYE CONCEALER
I first saw Gabby (www.velvetgh0st.co.uk) the Youtube use this brush in this way on a video and this is the way I have been using it ever since. I think this is a contour brush but the size of it just fits perfectly under the eye. You can easily use the tip of this brush to blend out any concealer to make sure it doesn’t settle into creases, and it brightens up the eye area incredibly when you use a good concealer and this brush to disguise dark circles.
Best for…BLENDING EYESHADOW
The Zoeva 227 Luxe Soft Definer is the ideal shape and size for getting right into the crease to blend eyeshadow. The bristles on mine have gone a tad awry but I’m not sure if that’s because I haven’t been looking after it right :S. It’s soft, not the softest, but my goodness does it blend eyeshadow well.
There’s my round up of the best brushes in the wild wild drugstore!
