How To- Using Makeup Brushes

Just take a quick peek in your favourite beauty supply store and you might be overwhelmed with the amount of makeup brushes you can find! At first glance there may seem like a thousand brushes just for applying makeup, but not all brushes are created equal! Here's a makeup brush "cheat sheet" so you won't have to be as confused as I was the first time I bought a set of brushes. Once you buy your first set of beautiful brushes, refer to the picture below so you know how to use them!

My favourite brushes are:
Powder Brush: The long, fluffy bristles evenly diffuse loose powders.
Alternate use: Sweep blush from the apples of your cheeks along your cheekbones.
All-Over Eye Shadow Brush: Use an eye shadow brush to evenly apply powder and cream shadows.
Blending Brush: The fluffy bristles diffuse eye shadow in the crease of your eye.
Concealer Brush: Use a small, synthetic brush to pinpoint specific areas that need extra coverage.
Angled Eyeliner Brush: This brush easily lines lashes with cream or gel liner or shadow.
Kabuki Brush: This big brush is perfect for softly applying bronzers and powders, and for evenly distributing product across your face or body.

And of course:
Beauty Blender: Use the sponge's broad sides to smooth out product on your face. Use the tip to reach creases around the nose and to pinpoint small areas.
