Hey, fashionsistas! Welcome to this week’s
episode of Fast Fridays, the place to be for quick fashion and beauty tips to help you
get out the door every morning looking and feeling amazing. Today I’m gonna talk about makeup brushes.
I personally know that when it comes to makeup brushes, it can be really confusing because
there are so many different types. And unless you are a makeup artist or a huge makeup junkie
just like myself, you don’t really need every single brush in the world. You only
need a few essential brushes to create your everyday makeup looks. I remember the first
time I went to a department store to buy makeup brushes, I was so overwhelmed by the amount
of makeup brushes there that the makeup artist ended up selling me so many that I didn’t
actually need and I ended up throwing them out. So today I’m gonna go through six essential
makeup brushes that you can use everyday. First up is the foundation brush. A foundation
brush is gonna give you a really lightweight, even and smooth finish to your foundation.
And it is not recommended for you to use your fingertips or sponge to apply your foundation,
because your fingertips can actually produce oil, which can later breakout and damage your
pores and makeup sponges also hang on to bacteria and they also use up a lot of product so you’ll
find that you’ll be wasting your foundation because it is being soaked by the sponge.
Sponges are great so those beauty blender that you can wash blending are very good for
blending in when you are contouring and highlighting. Number two is the concealer brush. A concealer
brush is great for using the cream or liquid concealers to cover dark circles and any blemishes.
It’s definitely best to blend a concealer using a brush, not with your fingertips or
sponge because your fingertips and sponge actually wipe away any concealer. So if you’re
trying to get a heavy coverage, lightly blending it with the concealer brush, it will really
gonna give you that finish. Number three is a big puffy powder brush.
A powder brush is used to apply loose or pressed powder and is recommended over a puff because
of the flared shape. It applies powder really smoothly and evenly and gonna give you a really
smooth and luminous finish rather than a heavy and uneven coverage. Number four is a blush brush. Blush brushes
are cut on an angle to mold to the cheekbones for smooth application and natural finish
much better alternative to the small shaper brush that comes with a blush. Number five is an eyeshadow brush. There’s
so many different types of eye shadow brushes out there that can be really hard to tell
which one you need. So the standard all rounder eyeshadow brush is long, bristled and flared,
so it’s really good for dusting a dark to light eye shadow. You can soften the intensity
of the color and really illuminate your eyes so it is the perfect all rounder. Number six is the eye crease brush. Eye crease
brush is tapered in shape so it’s really good for blending dark eye shadow to the inner
and outer corner of your eye as well as your crease so it’s really good for applying
something dark and around in blend it in softly. And that’s my six staple makeup brushes.
You don’t really need anything more than that if you’re just creating a simple everyday
makeup looks. Even if you’re doing smokey eye, you can use two of the eye brushes that
I talked about. I hope you loved this video and if you want to see more of Fast Fridays,
