Brushes and More for Your Complexion
Looking for solutions to help you beautify your complexion? A number of brushes and applicators are made specifically for the face.
If you use liquid or cream foundation, you can choose a makeup brush with synthetic bristles or flat makeup sponges to blend. Foundation brushes with natural or synthetic bristles are also ideal for powder-based foundations.
Concealer can be dotted on with sponge applicators or a concealer brush, and specially designed blush and contouring brushes are perfect for blush and bronzer.
For loose or pressed powder, you can select a kabuki brush, a powder brush or a powder puff to dust on that final finishing touch of makeup.
Tools for the Eyes and Lips
Brushes and applicators for the eyes and lips need to be smaller in size, so that you can easily control where your makeup goes. When it comes time to apply eye shadow, you can choose from sponge-tipped applicators and eye shadow brushes.
Typically, sponge applicators are best for pressed powder eye shadow that is lightly pigmented, while brushes will give you best results with vibrant shadows and all loose powdered eye shadows.
For cream-based shadow, choose a synthetic eye shadow brush. You can find thin-tipped liner brushes for your eyes and lips to ensure that you have full control as you trace the contours of your lash line or lip line.
Solutions for Blending and Perfecting
Blending your cosmetics and correcting mistakes takes the right accessories. Bullet, wedge and teardrop sponges are perfect for removing any lines of makeup along your jaw, cheeks and forehead. When your makeup goes astray, you can reach for cotton swabs and cotton rounds dipped in a bit of makeup remover to whisk it away.
