Any professional or makeup buff knows that it is essential to use brushes quality and specific for each area . They are your most precious tools, of which you know every detail, possibility or trick.
If you are not from this group of people, do not worry, here I have the perfect solution for you. I am going to talk to you about all the possibilities offered by the world of brushes. There is a huge variety, so I am going to divide it into several parts. Each one has a specific function, serves for a type of product or provides a certain finish. This is the exciting world of makeup brushes 😛
We start with the basics. We will find brushes with two types of hair: natural and synthetic . The fluid makeup they are usually applied with synthetic hair brushes (since they are more resistant) and natural hair brushes are used for the products powdered. Anyway, we can find cheap brushes only synthetic hair that mimic the natural hair very well, although it is convenient to have both types in your set of brushes.
From the web Bulevar Sur they bring us a wide content of types of brushes according to their characteristics:
- According to the haircut. Within this type there are several models, with different terminations, for each part of the face.
Flat cut : they are used mainly to apply powders and bases throughout the face, both fluid and compact. A uniform and natural finish is achieved because they trap the product well and distribute it equally.
Rounded cut: allow a certain precision when applying make-up and catch less than flat-cut. They serve to apply all kinds of powder on the face.
In tip: they allow to catch less product and to apply it of more precise form. They are ideal to apply correctors and contours.
Beveled cut: the diagonal cut adapts to the peculiar shapes of our face. It is used to cover areas that are flat, such as the cheekbones.
- For the length of the hair. It is another option to distinguish the brushes. Those that have short and dense hair catch more amount of product than those with long hair, which allow to blend better and provide greater freedom of movement.
- For the size of the brush . Large brushes are usually indicated for the widest areas of the face (makeup bases and powders), while small brushes are for eyes, contour of nose or mouth. The medians serve to apply with greater precision in intermediate areas (blusher, concealer or contour).
