Makeup Brushology. (The knowledge of Makeup Brushes)
Ever look around at a store and wonder…Hm, what’s that brush for?! Or wonder why you need so many makeup brushes?? It’s actually very essential, and below you will learn why! Below we will go over 5 different brushes and what their importance plays in the role of applying makeup. REMEMBER TO CLEAN YOUR BRUSHES!!!!!

1. The foundation brush:
I really love the MAC 190 foundation brush, but there are many great ones out there! The purpose of this brush is to obviously apply foundation, but it does so much more! This brush not only saves your liquid foundation, but provides that smooth, even looks and allows you to handle the makeup with precision, and that you would not normally be able to do with a sponge. Make sure to brush in a pattern though because you don’t want the fine lines that come along with the pattern of the bristles.
2. The Concealer brush:
Once again any brand of brush will do but I prefer to use the 195 MAC concealer brush. This brush is very small and allows you to get into detail those small areas that need coverage as well, I always buy a mousse concealer and apply where mostly needed (beside nose, under eyes, and under the nose) the small areas you need more detail on!
3. The Contouring brush:
With this I actually prefer the brush by ELF which you can find at any drug store! This is by FAR my favorite out of all! This brush allows you to define your face in any which way you want! It helps define the cheekbones, or the nose if needed! This brushes angle allows you to contour your face, bringing out the features you want to bring out, Broadening or narrowing however much you would like!
4. The Eye Shadow brush:
This brush I use the MAC version. The size of this brush (being large for an eye shadow brush) is EXCELLENT for your base shadow you are using, but I also want to talk about the slanted brush that goes along with this base brush!
4B: The slanted Eye Shadow brush:
This brush has a slanted shape allowing you to mimic the shape of the eye, get into the crease, and blend to get that amazing Smokey eye look!!!
And last but not least everyone’s favorite!
5. The Bronzing brush:
We all know what this is, but do we use it right? This brush with full and soft bristles allows this brush to pick of the right amount of bronzer (not making you look crispy) and evenly apply to your skin flawlessly where you need it! Where you apply your bronzer is up to you! I always apply where I need something brightened and brought out!
