5 Budget-Friendly Brushes You Need If You Are A Makeup Noob!
Makeup and I have been in a relationship for a while now. I mean, it only recently got serious, and so far it’s been drama-free and perfect. Before things got the way they were, makeup was in the friend zone and I didn’t know what all the hype was about the commitment and all that. I couldn’t care less about it either, but then one thing led to another and now here we are. Now while I have the basics figured out – the base, the concealer, the highlighter – I am a little stumped by other things. For example, the workings of an eyeshadow that has commitment issues and won’t stay on the eyelid. And, this is a big one, the makeup brushes.
It’s been a while since I got myself into this I am still clueless about the brushes to be used! So I did what any millennial would do, I went on Youtube. Because that is the source of all credible information, truly. But, what’s the point of this knowledge if I didn’t share it with budding makeup junkies, right? So, I have listed down the basic makeup brushes every girl needs in her makeup bag.
Flat Top Brush
This multi-tasking brush is primarily used to apply foundation, but can also be used to set your powder or apply blush! This one tends to really work the product into your skin, and can sheer out the product, so use this for when you are looking for a more natural finish.
Want those cheekbones to pop and your face to look like you’ve lost a couple of kgs instantly? You need this brush in your life. Get precise lines that you can blend in with this contouring brush.
Are you a highlighter hoarder like me but don’t know how to perfect your highlighter game like those bloggers you watch? This fan brush is a match made in heaven for your highlighter! You want this to graze your cheekbones to get the right amount of highlight.
Eye shadow brush
Get this kind of flat eyeshadow brush when you want to build colour on your eyelid. If it’s a dark, intense shade – a black or a popping colour – use this brush to pat the colour on. Use a tapping motion to deposit pigment and not swiping movements. This will take product off!
If on the daily, your struggle is to nail that wing eyeliner, you have help in this eyeliner brush that gives you a precise, smooth finish. The point-y bit will allow you to make an excellent wing as well.
