I needed something else to get into like I needed a hole in the head! Do you think that stopped me…..Nope. So I press on. I have never been one who wore alot of makeup but since I had purchased so much for my wedding I thought..hey I think I like this! My version of makeup was Mimi from the Drew Carey Show! My family really wasn’t into make so I didn’t bother. Times have changed! There are so many things I wish I knew before like how to take care of my skin, using moisturizing creams, etc. Today I want to chat with you about your tool.s Yup the tools used to apply your make up…what discovered is they make all the difference.
The only brushes I ‘ve ever owned were from Coastal Scents and they did the job…..or so I thought. Lets start with Eye Brushes. There are a million Brushes out there:
Coastal Scents, NARS, MAC, Real Techniques, ELF, Crown Brushes, Sigma, Tom Ford, Sephora, Sonai Kushuk, Makeup Geek Brushes….ok I will stop there. To not make this overwhelming lets talk about what I have learned. Here are the “basic” brushes you need for eyes.
Shader-A firm brush used to pack on shadow
Blender-fine densely packed fibers, doomed brush, oval shaped.
Lets first talk about shader brushes.
First thing I learned …after I had purchased a million brushes be sure to know your eye. What do I mean by your eye….do you have Big eye, is your eye lid big or small lids. You have to know your own eye for example I own both the brushes above, lets look at these side by side:
Sigma E55 $10USD
- So on my eye this brush could be an all over lid brush.
- Rounder Handle
- Budget Friendly
- Densely packed and firm
Mac 239 $25USD
- High End
- Really Soft
Sigma E55 vs Mac 239: Winner MAC 239:
I prefer the Mac 239 better, why because its MAC….no because it fits she shape of my eyelid perfectly. Apply product well from my $2 Wet N Wild eyeshadows to my Urban Decay and Mac Shadows.
