Makeup brushes: how to choose and use correctly?
Daily application of makeup has become quite dense in everyday life of almost every woman. The beautiful half of the floor literally buys tons of various cosmetics that are really capable of improving and transforming a woman's appearance at times.
But, no matter how strange it sounds, many women, even with the most expensive and high-quality cosmetics, often forget to shell out a small set of quality brushes, constantly using only those that are offered in the default sets.
And it's really strange, because cosmetics manufacturers do not aim to put a good and high-quality brush in the box, and those that are offered there are not able to apply even the most expensive cosmetics in such a way that it looks perfect.
Those who do not believe in the depth and meaning of this topic need at least once to use good makeup brushes, and, believe me, you can not remain indifferent to the subsequent result.
Smooth and smooth application of shadows, neat texture of tonal means and powder, high-quality feathering of borders, which will give your make-up unforgettable notes of mystery and mystery.
In addition to the visual effect, good makeup brushes do not scratch or injure the top layer of skin, which will delay the appearance of signs of aging and fading skin.
The advantages of natural and high-quality brushes do not end there, because they are easy to use, thanks to easy cleaning of the material, they do not mix tones and shades, thereby protecting you from spoiled makeup and shadows.
How to choose a good makeup brush?
Any girl who carefully monitors her appearance should, without fail, understand what a good brush is, how to use it, and then purchase a pair of such for personal use.
Of course, on sale you can find quite a large variety of professional sets of brushes for makeup, they can easily include 20-40 different subspecies, each of which has its own particular application.
Naturally, for home and non-professional use,such sets are completely unnecessary, if you are lucky enough to meet a complete set of 3-10 brushes, then you are lucky, and this option can be purchased for yourself.
If nothing like this occurs, then you have to run a little shopping and pick the necessary brushes for your makeup separately.
Usually, all brushes for applying cosmetics are divided into two main types: from natural pile and synthetic. Naturally, the first option is considered the most acceptable and effective, because natural brushes do not scratch the skin, cause allergic reactions much less often and are best suited for applying "loose" cosmetics.
Synthetic options, of course, it is better to use as little as possible, but some of them are simply indispensable for applying liquid and creamy cosmetics.
An alternative to brushes can be a variety of sponges and applicators, which are most often found in the shadows, blush and other cosmetics.
They are much inferior to brushes in applying cosmetics, especially for artificial options, which are much worse “give” cosmetics to the skin and are superimposed, most often, unevenly.
Small sponges from natural materials are a good substitute for applying foundation or a liquid base; most importantly, do not forget to clean them of the product after use.
If you do spend your time on a good set of makeup brushes, then you will definitely be satisfied, despite the rather high prices. After all, if the brushes are really high-quality, then they are, in fact, eternal, the main thing is to properly care for them.
What you need to know?
- In order not to run into a fake, be sure to tug lightly for the pile, it should not be strewed, one or two hairs for the whole time - it's not scary, but the systematic loss at every touch is a sentence.
- When buying, you should always carefully examine the brush handle - it should not be too long, approximately the width of your palm. Check the place of attachment of the villi with the handle: it must be strong, without unnecessary strange and unnecessary movements.
- Always pay attention to how much the brush is full, in order to determine if the producers have not saved on the nap, pinch the hairs all together, and check to see if there is any gap.If it is more than 1 mm, then this brush cannot be called good.
- Natural or synthetic pile - always indicated on the packaging, in addition, synthetic hairs are denser and more shiny than natural. The softest pile - from the fluff of the squirrel, a little stiffer - from the column or sable, the most resilient and smooth - from the pony fur.
Why do we need each brush?
The awe-inspiring number and variety of brushes, of course, can lead you into complete shock, it is difficult to figure out from the first which one is needed for what and how it differs from the other. We will list you the main ones that are most often used in daily and evening make-up.
Brush for applying foundation or liquid foundation.Instead of the usual distribution of the cream with your fingers, it can be done more correctly and accurately with a special wide brush. Usually it has a synthetic brist, as it does not absorb creamy agents, it remains in operation for quite a long time and evenly distributes the tonal flower over the face, leaving no stains. It should be quite elastic and wide - about 2.5 cm, with a smaller brush you will have to distribute the cream for a long time in the face.
Brush for blush and powder.For crumbly and compact powder, it is best to use a soft natural brush that gently distributes makeup over the face and makes it weightless, but at the same time, more resistant. The brush should be quite voluminous and soft, and the pile of small length. A brush for blush should be somewhat smaller than for powder; it is usually equipped with a beveled edge, which allows you to spray blush, erasing clear boundaries.
Shadow brush.For this important task, several professional brushes with natural fibers are usually used, each of them has its own size and shape. For applying the background tone using a wide brush with a pile length of 10-12 mm, it has a flat shape and a dome-shaped top. For applying contrasting shadows and dark corners it is recommended to use a brush similar to the previous one, but smaller (5-6 mm lint length). For feathering pencils and shadows there is a special brush with a flat nap and a slight bevel on the fibers.
For eyebrows.An eyebrow brush is similar to the shading option, the only difference is that it has a sharper cut and rather coarse bristles from natural materials are used for its lint.
Lipstick brush. It is usually small and flat, equipped with natural pile, the tip is always pointed and has a cap (in high-quality modifications). With its help, lipstick is applied evenly, carefully, painting over all the cracks and irregularities.
By purchasing good makeup tools, you can easily perform both the simplest make up and the sophisticated professional version.
