Types of Brushes and Uses: Part II

Know Your Brush Part II
In my last "lesson" I talked about knowing your brushes and today it will be types and uses. It may looked very intense due to so many brushes but trust me, it's easier than it seems.
Face Brushes:
  • Foundation Brush
  • Concealer Brush
  • Duo Fibre Brush
  • Powder Brush
  • Angled Brush / Contour Brush
  • Fan Brush
  • Kabuki Brush
  • Beauty Blender (Technically still an amazing tool to apply foundation)
Foundation Brush: Use to apply liquid or cream foundation. Also can be use to apply skincare products such as facial mask.
Concealer Brush: Use to apply liquid or cream concealer. Think of this brush as a small version of foundation brush.
Duo Fibere Brush: Multi-funtional brush. Use to apply liquid foundation, powder, liquid and cream blush because they are able to give an airbrushed effect look without much effort.
Powder Brush: Can be use for loose powder, blush and bronzer. Helps to diffuse the product without smudging the foundation.
Angled / Contour Brush: Can be use for blush and bronzer. Easy application because it's angled and fit perfectly on and under the cheekbone.
Fan Brush: Use for highlighter on cheek as well as dusting away excess/fallout under the eyes.
Kabuki Brush: A large dense flat top brush that use to apply loose powder which help buff skin to a flawless finish.
Beauty Blender: Multi-funtional tool. Use to apply liquid and cream foundation as well as buffing out concealer. I misplaced my original pink beauty blender hence I replaced with a green dupe, a cheaper version.
Eye Brushes:
  • Flat Brush
  • Blending Brush
  • Angled Brush / Eyeliner Brush
  • Smudger Brush
  • Pencil Brush
  • Lash Comb
Flat brush: A tiny version of foundation brush. Can be use for eyeshadow as it can help to pack product onto our lid.
Blending brush: A dome shaped brush. They are very loose and fluffy hence it can diffused products giving it a soft blended look. The tip of the brush is also called flower tip.
Angled / Eyeliner Brush: Use for gel liner because it can create a define line. You can use it for eyeshadow to create a softer eyeliner look.
Smudger Brush: Helps to smudge pencil eyeliner. It can be use to line the lash. I couldn't find my other smudger brush...the perks of owning too many and losing too many.
Pencil Brush: A mini blending brush that helps to diffuse and deposit colour easily. Can be use on upper and lower lash line. It also can create a define crease too.
Lash Comb: Comb out clumpy lashes. Brush side can be use on diffusing brow colour.
Lip Brushes:
  • Angled Brush
  • Flat Brush
Angeled Brush: Able to create a define line hence it is great for lining outer rim of the lip.
Flat Brush: Mini version of foundation brush. Apply lip product easily.

Many brushes are quite versatile. Such as I can use a concealer brush to apply glitter onto my eyelid, a pencil brush instead of smudger brush to line my lash line. It all depends on your own preferences. Anyway I hope you enjoyed today's "lesson". There will be more post/video on brushes next so do keep a look out!

*There are a few different types of brushes catering for the same properties. Depending on which you prefer to use.
