One of the key things to note is in order to achieve the best makeup look ever, you need to have the right brushes. That’s why makeup artist to the stars, Theodora Mogo of Doranne Beauty, is here with a video to dish on the top 10 brushes you need.
From what you use to highlight & contour to why you need a lip brush, Theo covers all the basics.
Here’s a breakdown:
- Powder brush: This brush comes in different shapes and is used to apply powder in circular motions around the face.
- Blush brush: They come in different shapes and sizes. Blush brushes are used to apply blush to the apples of the cheeks and the hairline.
- Foundation brush: This brush comes in different sizes and shapes and is used to apply foundation to the face.
- Contour brush: These brushes come in an angular shape and a rounded shape. The angled brush is used to apply contour back and forth under the cheek bone, while the rounded contour brush is used in a circular motion under the cheek bone.
- Concealer Brush: This brush is used to apply concealer to the areas of your face you would like to correct or highlight. It is best to use a brush made with synthetic fiber because it picks up & blends concealers better.
- Flat Eyeshadow brush : Also called the eyeshadow brush, the flat eyelid brush is used to apply colours right under your eyebrows or to set the concealer used.
- Crease/Blending brush: This brush comes in different designs. If your crease is wide, you would need to get a wider/fuller brush. It is mainly used to apply colours in circular motions on your eye crease.
- Mascara wand: This is also called a spoolie. It is used to brush your eyebrows into place before using an eyebrow pencil or concealer.
- The Flat Angled brush: This brush can be used to define your eyebrows and can either come with a mascara wand or alone. It is used to apply concealer under and above your eyebrow, and also to fill in your brows if you’re working with a brow powder.
- Lip brush: You may think you don’t need a lip brush, but it is great for hygiene purposes and to blend your lipstick and lip liner together.
You also need something extra – a Beauty Blender. Theo calls this a must-have for a flawless, dewy finish. It can be used to blend in foundation, powder, concealer… you name it.
