HERE IS THE NEW COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO OUR BEST SELLING MAKE-UP BRUSHES

Monday, September 3rd, 2018

Figuring out which make-up brushes you really need can be over-whelming whether you are a professional make-artist, or purchasing your first set of brushes. My first bit of advice is to splurge a little and invest in quality brushes.  So, I have put together a  comprehensive guide to all the make-up brushes available here at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center to help you figure out which brushes your just can’t live without. Check out my blog on A Comprehensive Guide To Our Best Selling Make-Up Brushes For Eyes for an in-depth explanation on eye brushes.

FOUNDATION:

Flat Top Kabuki:

The design of this brush allows for applications of both pressed mineral powder foundation or liquid foundations (though you should have one dedicated to each product rather than one brush for both products so that you do not transfer unwanted ingredients into your powder). It’s expertly designed “flat-top” as apposed to a rounded top, is perfect for buffing (in circular motion) mineral powder into a smooth, radiant finish. It provides light to medium coverage, depending on your layering preferences.

When using this the Flat Top Kabuki to apply liquid foundation, you can expect a soft, flawless, airbrushed finish with medium to full coverage. This brush also comes in a travel-friendly version for quick touch-up and on-the-go applications. Perfect purse size!

Pro Kabuki:

This is a tightly packed, round top, mineral powder foundation brush. Choose this brush when you are looking for the full coverage of a pro! Its brush head is packed with very dense, soft bristles for a full, radiant coverage.

 

CAMOUFLAGE / CONCEALER:

 Dual Foundation / Camouflage Brush:

This is a dual-ended, double duty brush. It is suitable for both liquid and cream concealers and foundations. One end offers the precision needed when applying camouflage and other end provides the ease an expert liquid foundation application.

Full Coverage Camouflage Brush:

This is a flat-domed shape brush with a somewhat pointed tip. This brush is commonly used to cover blemishes, facial redness, brown spot etc. It is intended for cream camouflage formulations. It is easy to blend and perfect. For a more fluid application, try misting the end of the brush with setting mist or water. Blot the fibers between paper towels to remove access. Then you are ready to begin applying your camouflage.

Precision Camouflage Brush:

This is a smaller version of the full coverage camouflage brush. It works well with cream camouflage, concealers or primers for smaller, detailed areas.

 

HIGHLIGHT / CONTOUR / BLUSH / POWDERS:

Contour / Highlighter Brush:

Make no mistake about it, when it comes to make-up brushes, the right contour brush is a girl’s best power tool! It is the key to changing your look from everyday to runway!! It is a dual-head brush. One end contours while the other end highlights. The contour end is tapered with a nice apex for more precise placement. I like to pinch the bristles together to accentuate the apex ,which give me more control when shading. It’s ideal for both highlighting and shading to create dimension, chiseled jawlines, nasal narrowing and prominent cheek bones.

Powder Brush:

Typically an extra full, soft, rounded brush designed for translucent powders, bronzers, finishing powders. Distributes sheer to medium coverage. Tap off any access powder before using a circular motion to buff the product on the skin.

Tapered Powder Brush:

A tapered powder brush is typically a soft brush with a pointed end for delicate placement of setting or finishing powders.

Powder Blush Brush:

These brushes can be rounded or angled and intended to apply blush, bronzers or highlight powders.

Dual-Fiber Blush Brush (a.k.a – Texture Brush):

I must own 4-5 of this brush. They are made from a blend of synthetic, soft, flowing fibers, which makes for a luxurious experience. The feathery, flat-top head delivers a light-weight applications of powders, shimmers, and cream blush. Perfect for layering and building.
