Brushes for Foundation, Powder, Brows & Eyeshadows

A cosmetic brush is a fantastic little tool! Discover all the different types of makeup brushes and handy makeup sponges, and create your day and night looks with ease. A professional makeup brush will always make you look incredible.

Synthetic vs. Natural Makeup Brushes

The difference is not in quality – it’s in the type of products you can use these makeup brushes for.

  • Natural cosmetic brushes are mostly used for powder products (face powders, blushers, eyeshadows).
  • Synthetic makeup brushes are more suitable for oil-based textures (such as lipstick or liquid eyeshadow).

Types fo Makeup Brushes:

Foundation Brush

Foundation brushes usually have thick, densely packed bristles that are cut either straight or into a gentle curve. If you’re using a concealer, go for a smaller concealer brush with a slanted tip – it will make the product easier to apply exactly where you need it.

Powder Brush

A chubby, round brush with densely packed bristles will be ideal for the application of powder. Powder brushes usually have longer handles, but you can also get a so-called kabuki brush with a short handle. A kabuki brush will help you achieve a natural result as well as high coverage in a matter of moments.

Eyeshadow Brush

Eyeshadow brushes are often quite thin and very soft. Ideally, you should have two – a pointed one with the softest bristles (for instance for a precise application of highlighter to the inner corner), and a wider one for a comfortable application of eyeshadow to your eyelids.

Lip Brush

Your makeup collection should also include a thin lip brush with fine bristles that will always help you put on your lipstick with precision and absolutely no mistakes. Try a handy retractable lip brush you can take with you anywhere you go.

Eyebrow Brush

Eyebrow brushes tend to be small, flat and cut at an angle. This helps you fill in the missing brow hair with precision and even create a perfect eyeliner. You can often find this type of brush paired with a brow spoolie designed to brush through your eyebrows and create the right shape.

Contour Brush

Contouring might seem like a pretty daunting task – but the right contour brush will make it a walk in the park. The perfect contour brush with very thick and soft hair will help you make your nose thinner or even lift your cheekbones.

  • A thick and slightly angled blusher brush has an ideal shape for applying the exact necessary amount of blusher to the apples of your cheeks and creating a subtle, natural effect.
  • A flat fan highlighter brush is ideal for highlighting your cheekbones, while a thinner highlighter brush with round bristles will be perfect for detailed work.
  • A bronzer brush is usually slightly angled, just like a blush brush. However, you might also see a straight-cut brush or a thick one with a round head – it all comes down to preference.

Cleaning Makeup Brushes

Makeup brushes accumulate dirt and oils which might cause acne if you don’t wash them regularly. So what’s the best way to clean makeup brushes? The easiest method is using a brush cleaner.

You should wash your brushes with water ideally after every use, but at least once a week. Hold them with the bristles pointing down to prevent water from getting into the handle. Wash the brush until the water is clear.
