It has become quite clear lately that using your fingers to apply and blend makeup just isn’t good enough. The makeup world is becoming more and more advanced, and even young teenagers have special brushes and sponges to apply their products. However, many people still get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of tools out there. If this sounds like you, here are some of the most important beauty tools, explained:
The Beauty Blender
What is the actual point of a beauty blender? Actually, it has lots of points. You can use it wet or dry to apply foundation, helping to give it the effect you want. Wet gives you a more sheer look. Either way, it turns out flawless. You can use it for blending just about anything else, and even applying powder under your eyes to hide those pesky bags!
The Eyelash Curler
Seems pretty self explanatory, but if you don’t use one of these currently, you’re missing out. Try heating it up with the hairdryer for a few seconds to make that curl last. You won’t believe the difference, no fake lashes required!
The Large Fan Brush
The large fan brush is so fluffy for a reason. It can be used to apply highlighter, bronzer, and anything else you want to sweep over the face. You can even use it for getting rid of powder spills.
An Angled Brow Brush
Want perfect brows? Then you must have an angled brow brush. This will help you to get those glorious sweeping arches and defined tails that dreams are made of.
The Fluffy Eye Blending Brush
The fluffy eye blending brush can be used to apply shadow in the crease, or on its own to help blend out any harsh lines. It’s perfect for those who want to get their eyeshadow just right.
The Tapered Shadow Brush
The tapered shadow brush is better for applying shadow all over the lid. This gives you a beautiful, even sweep of color.
The Powder Brush
The powder brush can be used to apply any type of powder. However, it’s probably best for your favorite finishing powder. Once your makeup is nearly done, swirl this brush in your powder, tap off the excess, and apply.
The Angled Face Brush
The angled face brush will give you chiseled cheeks that look as if they could cut a man. Just get that bronzer into the hollows of your cheeks to shade them, and voila! Just make sure you don’t go in with too much product at first, and blend like there’s no tomorrow. You don’t want your face to look dirty.
The Small Smudge Brush
The small smudge brush is just perfect for those who want to get the smoky eye just right. Simply apply your dark shade with it and blend, blend, blend to get the sexy, smoky look of your dreams.
