We all know how much women love make-up. For the perfect make-up looks professional make-up brushes are essential and you need to know how to use them. Whether you use pressed, loose, mineral or liquid make-up, there is a make-up brush for everything.


Make-up Brushes for Face – After using face make-up brushes your make-up will be softer, smoother and look more polished.

1. Foundation brush – Designed to achieve a smooth and flawless finish, the bristles are tightly packed with a tapered tip for fluid application. 


2. Concealer brush – Flat brush with a wider base and a pointed tip. Use to apply concealer under the eyes and to cover spots.


3. Bronzer/powder brush – This brush can be used for both compact powder and bronzer. It is full and soft.


4. Face contour brush – Slanted and rounded in shape, the contour brush mimics the angles of your cheekbones. Use this brush for highlighting with bronzer or illuminating powder.



Eyeshadow Brushes – When it comes to eyeshadow looks the use of brushes will make colors look smoother and more blended.

1. Eyeshadow brush – This brush is large and flat. The soft bristles have a bevelled edge for a smooth application without ‘dragging’ the eyelid. Use it when applying colour.
