Best Makeup Brushes for Perfect LooksWhether you are a wannabe makeup artist or you want your makeup to be perfect, appropriate makeup brushes are must-have tools for anybody. Best makeup brushes are those that are made of sable or high quality goat hair; are soft and rounded at the tip but stiff at the base for easy application. And it’s very important that the bristles don’t come out (break) during application of makeup.
For that next-door-neighbor look go for soft and precise eye liner brushes. Fine round tipped brushes are easy to drag from corner to corner for a thin, natural looking lash line. Angle eye liner brushes are also available for convenient application. Use large eyeliner brushes if you are interested in the dramatic look.
Eye shadow brushes are ideal if they are dome-shaped and small. The brush has to be soft yet firm enough for perfect application.
Good eye brow brushes come in slanted shapes making it possible to apply color on the vacant spaces and to darken the eyebrows.
Outer lip lines are best defined by brushes that are round shaped where the hairs are firmly tufted together. This will help you make a clean, neat outline.
Lip brushes on the other hand are best if they are soft but can hold the right amount of color for quick applications. Look for retractable and easy to clean lip brushes.
A good foundation brush is tapered and chiseled to fit the contours of your face. Make sure that the brush helps you blend the foundation seamlessly and the bristles are very soft. Short handles make the application easy. You can apply the primer also with the same brush.
The blush brush can either be angled bristled to fit perfectly over the cheekbone or graduating gently with shorter hairs on the outside and longer ones to the center for even distribution of color.
