Professional Makeup Brushes -What Makes Them Special?
Executive Summary about Professional Makeup by K Walsh
A professional makeup brush usually has several key elements that separate it from the makeup brushes that are sold at your local drugstore. A professional makeup brush will be made from the highest grade. A higher grade natural fiber should also make the brush last longer and maintain its shape better over time. Synthetic fibers have become more popular with consumers and as a result there are now high quality brushes made with synthetic fibers that mimic the look, feel and performance of natural fiber brushes.
Ferrules: The ferrule is the piece of material that connects the brush handle to the bristles. A professional makeup brush will have a nickel or aluminum ferrule. A makeup brush should be cleaned on a regular basis and because of this wear and tear on the brush, a quality ferrule is one of the most important components of a makeup brush.
Handles: The majority of makeup brushes sold today have a wood handle. A professional makeup brush will tend to have a long handle because makeup artists find a long handle to be easier to use with clients. So buying the highest quality makeup brush that you can afford will prove to be a wise investment.
Makeup Brush Sets – 10 Must Haves For Your Professional Brush Collection
When looking to build a collection of professional makeup brushes, people often wonder which brushes are the best choices for their collection.
Powder Brush: You will want to look for one that is fairly flat and has rounded edges.
Blush Brush: The size of this one is critical.
Contour Brush: Some people prefer one that has a flat edge. For contouring the nose and cheeks, a smaller version of the blush brush is typically a much more versatile choice for contouring.
Highlight Brush: If you intend to use this primarily under the eyes to apply highlighter powder, a good choice would be one that is dense and has rounded tips.
Eyeshadow Brush: In order to achieve a variety of looks and to get the best eyeshadow application, there are two primary brushes that you’ll need in this category.
Detail Eyeshadow Brush: The second eyeshadow brush that you’ll need is one for detailing.
Eyeliner Brush: Look for a tapered, fine tip that will allow you to apply cake and gel eyeliner with a thin and precise line.
Fantail Brush: This brush is used to remove makeup.
