Using the right brushes for make up is a very important part while doing makeup. Using an eyeliner brush for applying foundation or powders may ruin your makeup completely. When you purchase a makeup brush always remember to wash it or rinse it well to remove any excess dye, loose hair or left over residue from the manufacturing process. After rinsing the brushes always clean them on a paper towel and let them dry before using them. Reshape the brushes while letting them dry will also be a good method of preventing splaying.
Keeping your brushes clean after use will also increase the life of the brushes and allow you to apply makeup in the correct way. A damaged makeup brush will not only utilize more time for your makeup but will also spoil the makeup. The use of makeup brushes will amaze you with the difference it makes if you have never used them before for your makeup.
The largest brush you should have in your collection of brushes is the powder brush. This brush helps you to set the foundation applied and also softens the foundation. The powder brush is majorly used to set your makeup and dust loose powder over your face. It also eliminates any shine caused because of the makeup.
The eye shadow brushes allow you to get the correct amount of color to your eye lids. The best part about using eye shadow brushes is that they do not leave behind lines if you are planning to use more than one color.
For softening pencil lines eyeliner brushes are absolutely great provided you have a steady hand. The eyeliner brushes can also be used to apply wet eye shadow or to mix shades of eye shadow around the eyes for a smoky effect. For even coverage use the lip brushes as they are designed to line the inner section of your lips for even coverage.
