Brushes are an essential item in every makeup kit and they can sometimes be more important then the makeup itself because if you don’t have good tools to apply them you might as well be using the worst products on the market. You need to use good quality brushes to achieve a good effect with your makeup and whilst it would be lovely if we could all afford to blow $70 odd dollars on a Dior Foundation Brush, this isn’t always an option… Beau make which is a brush range carried by Abbamart brushes are some that I use regularly and I have many brushes which I often reach for from them like these:
Short Tuff Duo Fibre Stippling Brush
One of my favourite brushes for applying foundation - densely packed and can make any foundation look sheer and natural without absorbing to much product. Also a full proof contour brush under the cheek bones, and to apply cream blush.
Duo Fibre Powder Blending Brush *
Nobody’s perfect and when your in a rush and still want to look pulled together it’s not unusual to go over the top with the blush, bronzer, contour or even end up with cakey foundation and this brush is the easiest and most effective way to tone down over the top makeup without reaching for the face wipes.
Large Fluff Brush *
I love this brush for setting my eye shadow primer and creamy shadows. It also comes in particularly handy for contouring underneath the cheekbones and down the sides of the nose.
Cream Shadow Brush
Cream shadows are one of my most used products and unlike most people I prefer to use a brush to apply them and this one is the one I generally use. It’s also great to use as a concealer or lip brush!
Precision Crease Brush
Having hooded eyelids definitely isn’t a blessing but this brush is, this is one of the very few brushes which fits into and defines my super tiny eye socket and means that I have more luck with creating defined eyes.
Fluffy Blending Eye Brush
These types of brushes are my most used, they are perfect for blending out harsh shadow lines and setting concealer to prevent creasing and mattifying a lip colour.
Flat Eyeliner Brush.
This is my go to whenever I want to tight-line my lash lines, it’s perfect for the push & wiggle technique and comes in handy when creating cat eyes or getting a precision lip-colour application.
Precision Eyeliner Brush
This brush is my secret to achieving a good and even cat eye, it’s so precise and you are able to create a flick easily at the outer corner of the eye!
Whilst this brush looks like a standard old typical lip brush I love it for it’s unique shape, it’s not to round or to square and it’s amazing at giving precise definition to the cupids bow
