They play a key role in helping you achieve a salon-perfect look.This article explains all the different uses for all the various makeup brushes, so you know what tobuy and when to use it!1. Blush BrushThe blush brush is one of the most importantbrushes in your makeup arsenal.A well made brush will help you achieve a morenatural glow by giving you better control as youhighlight the contours of your bone structure.Natural hair brushes are the most recommended bymakeup professionals. The hair cuticle does thebest job of lifting the blush powder to blend it with the natural oils from your skin, giving you a morerealistic glow with fewer streaks or blotches.
    •  2. Powder Brush The powder brush that you choose should have a slightly rounded, medium size head. This allows you to better control your powder application, and only apply it to the places you need it like the forehead, chin and nose. Before you buy a powder brush, test it by running the bristles across the back of your hand. It should feel feathery at the tips, and the bristles should be clasped tightly in the base; none of the bristles should shed.3. Foundation BrushThe best foundation brushes are a blend of natural withsynthetic bristles. It helps you achieve a more natural look.The natural hairs lift up the pigment powder while thesynthetic bristles keep the brush from absorbing too muchof your foundation and getting gloppy or clumpy. Youllsave money over the long run by using less makeup.The head should be flat with a contour tip to allow easyblending of your makeup, especially into tight places likearound your nose and eyes.4. Concealer Brush The concealer brush that you choose should have a small head with stiff bristles that allow you to dab make up exactly onto the spots you need. The best choice here is synthetic bristles, because they dont absorb make up and allow for more precise application. The brush should be flat with very closely packed bristles.
    •  5. Shadow BrushThe eye shadow brush needs to be very soft and silky.You dont want a brush that is too stiff and bristly.You should have two shadow brushes; one with a flat headfor covering your eyelid and one with an angled head forapplying shadow to the crease.6. Brow Blush The typical little plastic brow brush comes complete with a lash comb on the other side, and these work great for smoothing the brow and separating blobs of mascara. However, most professionals are now using a spooley brush, which looks similar to a mascara applicator.Its very good for grooming the brows and can also get rid of those mascara clumps.7. Kabuki BrushKabuki brushes resemble powder brushes, except it issquat and the bristles are very densely packed. This letsget greater coverage in the areas where you need it.Use your kabuki brush over foundation and bronzer to geta softer finish. You can also use it to apply shimmeringmakeup over the cheekbones.
    •  8. Lipbrush The lipbrush is used to apply lip color with more control. Its easier to create smoother edges, and also easier to manage the intensity of the color with a more sheer application. Stick with synthetic bristles that are firm but still bend. It allows you to smooth your lip color on without being streaky or leaving gloppy.9. Eyeliner BrushThe eyeliner brush is a versatile tool. You can use it toblend pencil liner into the lashes for a more dramatic look.You can also use it damp to line your eyes with powdereyeshadow for a much softer look than when you use aregular eyeliner.In a pinch, you can use the eyeliner brush for applyingshadow into the crease with more precision. Look for abrush with synthetic bristle to keep those lines precise. Itshould be very firm and the tip should be cut to a squared angle.Article Source: http://www.urbanewomen.com/tips-on-using-makeup-brushes-for-that-flawless-finish.html Do you have dry/oily/combination/acne prone skin?
