Do a full face with five brushes
Author: Danielle Cauchi Date Posted: 12 September 2018
There are so many different beauty products and specifically-shaped makeup brushes on the market that can make a hobby that is supposed to be creative and fun, become confusing and quite expensive.
You may think you need a certain brush and yes, different brushes are shaped in particular ways to make certain tasks easier, but a lot of brushes are shaped in a way that gives them multiple uses.
So, before you stock up on every single makeup brush out there and max out your credit cards, here are five multi-purpose brushes that can be used to achieve a full face of makeup.
Pointed foundation brushes work similarly with the addition of a pointed tip to easily apply product to smaller, harder-to-reach corners and crevices such as the undereye area and the sides of the nose.
Cosmetic Capital recommendation: e.l.f Pointed Foundation Brush ($12.00)
#2 Powder Brush
Cosmetic Capital recommendation: L'Oreal Mineral Powder Brush ($11.95)
Cosmetic Capital recommendation: wet n wild Contour Brush ($5.99)
Shading Brushes are a staple when it comes to eyeshadow application.
These fluffy brushes are your go-to brush for layering shadows and blending out harsh lines and adding a wash of colour to the lids.
Cosmetic Capital recommendation: Cala Urban Studio Shading Brush ($7.95)
Flat eyeshadow brushes (or shader brushes) are densely packed with a rounded edge designed to fit the curved shape of the eyelid.
These brushes are great for packing eyeshadows onto the lid to achieve optimal colour payoff.
You can use the tip of a flat eyeshadow brush/shader brush to apply eyeshadows along the lower lash line or to smudge eyeliner pencil for a smokey look.
