Your Makeup Essentials

Brushes for your face, brushes for your eyes, brushes for your brows: They’re all out there, and they’re all pretty much essential for getting your makeup on just right. So we’ve rounded up a guide of makeup brushes you’ll definitely want to get your hands on, based on their importance.

FOUNDATION BRUSH

Designed to achieve a smooth and flawless finish, the bristles are tightly packed with a tapered tip for fluid application. Based on the area of application, a face foundation brush is typically a flat brush that provides a smooth finish, whereas a body foundation brush has a short, dense and soft brush head to provide effortless blending.

CONCEALER/CAMOUFLAGE BRUSH

In conjunction with foundation brushes, Concealer brushes are as important as they work in the specific areas of the face. It is a soft bristled, flat brush with a wider base and a pointed tip. Ideal for applying concealer under the eyes, to spots and to camouflage problem areas such as broken capillaries, dark circles and areas of discolouration

POLISHING BRUSH

Made from a blend of goat and synthetic fibres this brush is ideal for buffing and blending colour. The flat, circular, feathery head provides lightweight and buildable coverage of liquid, cream or powder. Best used for blending cream blush onto the apples of your cheeks or for a light dusting of shimmer powder to your cheeks.

BRONZER/POWDER BRUSH

Soft, full and rounded, this brush can be used for both compact/neutralising powder and bronzer. The bristles pick up the perfect amount of colour and distribute it evenly onto the skin.

FAN POWDER BRUSH

Created for use with loose powder, the fine fan bristles sweeps a light dusting of powder onto the skin for a soft and velvety effect. This application technique avoids heavy coverage which can highlight fine lines and imperfections. These brushes are also used to remove excess powder on the face, particularly after eyeshadow application

BLUSHER BRUSH

Made with fine, gentle fibres, the blusher brush has a rounded head which is perfect for giving a pop of colour to the apples of your cheeks. Sweep and blend along your cheekbone drawing the brush up into your hairline.

EYE SHADOW BRUSH

Large, flat, short and brimming with bristles for excellent coverage. The soft bristles have a bevelled edge for smooth application without ‘dragging’ the eyelid.

ANGLE EYE SHADOW BRUSH

A long, round and tapered brush which is perfect for shading the eye socket. Just gently follow the natural crease of the socket blending back and forth to build up a depth in colour.

LIP BRUSH

The sculpted tip of a lip brush is perfect for achieving a flawless line. The bristles are short and firm for controlled application

BLENDING EYE SHADOW BRUSH

This light brush has refined bristles to blend eye colours effortlessly and to highlight the brow bone.
