15 Popular Must Have Makeup Brushes And IT’S Uses


Good quality makeup brushes are a must-have. When it comes to your tools. The appropriate brushes may make a huge difference in the way you apply your makeup. Makeup Brushes are designed to target specific regions of the face so to get the look you want, you’ll need the right tools. Brushes come in a wide range of forms and sizes. For example, some brushes are straight, round, flat, or tapered in shape.
Natural and synthetic hair materials are used for the bristles of makeup brushes, while wood or plastic is used for the handles.

Synthetic Makeup Brushes

Man-made hairs of nylon, polyester, or other synthetic materials are used to make these bristles. Synthetic bristles, unlike natural hair brushes, are less likely to absorb oil or powder pigments, making them ideal for use with cream or liquid foundations, as well as eyeliner, lipstick, and other precision applications.

Synthetic brushes are inexpensive and readily accessible, easy to clean, and have less shedding.


Natural Makeup Brushes

These are manufactured with natural hairs that are often brown or tan in color that are shed by animals such as horses and squirrels. They feel extremely silky and velvety against the skin due to their natural hair. This brush is perfect for persons with sensitive skin because it will not irritate them. Because these brushes absorb oils, they’re ideal for applying powder-based products like eyeshadows and blush.

Popular brands such as Anastasia Beverly Hills, Studio Makeup, Real Techniques, and Inglot Cosmetics offer/sell both  Natural cruelty-free and synthetic makeup brushes.

 How To Use Your Different Makeup Brushes;


        Spoolie Brush

Known for being the inventor of the brow brush. Use it to brush hairs into place, smooth out fine-to-normal brows or remove extra sculpting gel from eyebrows using this tool.

 Blending Brush

This is excellent for blending eye shadows together. Some may be tapered and others being spherical because they come in different sizes and forms. It’s crucial to invest in a soft, fine-haired blending brush that will help you blend your eyeshadow and create more layers.

                    Angled Brush

When dealing with creams or powders, it’s best to fill in the brows first. You may also use this brush to produce a sharper angle.

Flat Eyeshadow Brush

Best used to apply eyeshadow to the lids’ greatest area with its flat side. Apply by softly tapping the brush from side to side. Softer bristle hairs, usually derived from goat or sable are great for when working around the eyes.

        Fluffy Shadow Brush

Great for looser, softer shadow applications, such as a delicate shimmer.

  Concealer Brush

Blend concealer into the brow bone area, as well as the under-eye area and other places that may need concealing. Look for flat and rounded sable or synthetic bristles. These brushes are particularly wonderful for contouring smaller regions of the face, such as the sides of the nose.

Angled Liner Brush

Use this for creating your outer wing with gels or cream liners, Bristles should be semi-stiff for more control and ease.

Smudge Brush

For me, this is a must-have. Smudge out eyeliner to make an even line or eye shadow along the waterline. Look for synthetic bristles with short hair.

 Small Rounded Shadow Brush

For the inside corners of your eyes, this brush can be used to add a hint of shimmer.

   Foundation Brush

Foundation brushes come in Flat Top and Paddle, and are ideal for contouring and seamlessly blending your foundation into your skin. Flat top brush blends and buffs; Paddle applies for an airbrushed coverage. The best bet for absorbing less product and applying it more smoothly is a brush with synthetic bristles.
