Executive Summary about Cosmetic Brush Set by Connie Pearsons
If you wear makeup, then you should really consider investing a little money into a decent cosmetic brush set.
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. People tend to have a tendency to think that the biggest, fullest powder brush is the best.
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.
Eyeliner Brush: Look for a tapered, fine tip that will allow you to apply cake and gel eyeliner with a thin and precise line.
Eyebrow Brush: It should have firm bristles so that you can separate and shape the eyebrows.
Fantail Brush: This brush is used to remove makeup.
Blush Brush: a medium sized brush with a round tip. The blush brush that comes with your blush compact is usually too small and stiff.
Eye Shadow Brush: a small brush with angled bristles. These are great for shading your eyes and a good eye shadow brush is a MUST HAVE.
Lip Brush: small brushes with a protective top, great for creating the lip line you want.
Major Brush Tip
A poorly maintained brush is worthless and can actually do more harm than good (literally.. brushes can collect bacteria and cause infections, especially eye infections).
A lot of people ask how to clean their brushes. If you use your brushes every day then the brush cleaners sold by most make-up brands is great. The one down side about using some bottled brush cleaners is that the cleaning solution contains alcohol, which means your brushes will dry faster however over time the alcohol can also dry the hairs of your brush and be damaging. Remember, most decent brushes use real hair which are prone to the same issues our hair has.
If you aren’t in the habit of cleaning your brushes regularly, try cleaning your brushes today and you’ll notice a wolrd of difference in how they feel.
