Best Face Forward: Our Favourite Makeup Brushes for Brows and Beyond
Aspiring to take your makeup application skills to the next level? It’s a common misconception that proper products are the only factor in achieving on-trend, high end looks. True beauty lovers know that the real trick is using the right brushes. A good brush is what will ultimately allow you to apply and blend products seamlessly and create a flawless end result.
To help clue you in on what you’ll need, here are our top four professional brush picks for filling out your artist’s toolkit:
Perhaps one of the most important steps in a complete makeup routine is covering up blemishes, dark circles, and other skin dis coloration. However, because these are small areas, precise application can be challenging. For this we love our EI Concealer Brush, which is your secret weapon for acing concealer, every single time. The brush features a dense, fluffy tip, which can be used for both applying your product and blending it to perfection.
For a tool that multitasks, our EI Angled Brush is also a must-have. This brush works with a wide variety of products, thanks to its unique slant and small tip. It can be used to apply makeup, creams, and lotions for creating your ideal canvas. It can also work wonders for brow treatments such as henna and tinting. We love to pair it with Refectocil tints for the lashes and brows when we’re providing a professional tinting service.
If you do a lot of brow makeup and styling, a brow tool like our EI Brow Highlighter Brush is also great to have on hand. It has a small but dense and fluffy dome-shaped tip for facilitating beautiful dimension in the brow area, but it also works like a charm to apply other makeup, creams, lotions, and primers.
Also known as the EI Black 247 Shader Brush, this is Georgina Anne’s absolute favourite brush, and for good reason. Its flat, medium-sized bristles deliver superior powder and cream product placement. To get the most out of this brush, our pro tip is to use the large flat surface–rather than the tip–to pick up and apply product. Then for sparkle or glitter shadows, you can use the flat side in a pressing motion, which will help to eliminate fallout, and create a gorgeous shimmer effect.
Other Important Things to Know
One last tip for getting the most out of your makeup brushes is to clean them regularly. If you work on multiple clients, your brushes absolutely must be cleaned after each use to keep them sanitary and to eliminate unwanted product buildup. If you use them just on yourself, you will still want to sanitise your tools weekly with a gentle cleanser designed specifically for makeup brushes. Remember to always lay brushes flat to dry, too, as this prevents ruining the handles or bristles.
