To begin, I have a question for you: have you ever noticed this kind of belt that makeup artists put around their waist? They use it to keep on them the different types of brushes they use according to the specific needs of each client they deal with.
Most makeup tools can be used by hand, but there are some that require the use of an accessory designed for that purpose. This is why I propose to help you choose the different types of brushes needed to apply certain products for a successful make-up.
USE KABUKI FOR LOOSE POWDER OR POWDER FOUNDATION
It is common knowledge that brushes with a large diameter are ideal for applying powder foundation. One such brush is the Japanese brush (commonly called kabuki) which is highly recommended by professionals. The shape of its base and bristles is perfect to facilitate the application of this kind of foundation.
You can also use it to apply bronzing powder. With these two main characteristics that are its shape (which makes it easy to use) and its versatility, the kabuki is an indispensable accessory for a successful makeup.
USE A FLAT BRUSH FOR FLUID FOUNDATION
The flat brush is the ideal and most recommended accessory for people who have a clear preference for fluid foundation. Its biggest asset is the fact that it is very easy to use.
Indeed, you just need to put a little foundation on the back of your hand, and then gradually remove it with the bristles of the brush. Mix a little, then apply to the face in circular motions, and you’re done! In addition to its great ease of use, the result offered by this accessory is satisfactory.
USE A FINE-TIPPED BRUSH FOR CORRECTIONS
People with imperfections or dark circles can use a fine-tipped brush to apply the various corrective touches for a satisfactory final result. The trick in these cases is to apply several coats of foundation on the areas to be corrected, let it dry and then use the fine-tipped brush for the final corrections. We see this regularly during my make-up classes in Paris.
The use of this accessory is rather crucial, because if you actually have dark circles or other types of imperfections on your face, all the efforts made to have a flawless make-up will be in vain if you don’t take the time to make them disappear as much as possible.
Many people have become accustomed to using only their hands to apply makeup products. However, as you have seen here, it is more appropriate to use certain accessories, in this case brushes, to achieve a more successful result.
Apart from the examples cited here, there are several others that can be used according to the specific needs of each person. Therefore, make sure you are well informed, either on the internet or through makeup professionals, and take into account the different advices that will be given to you in order to make the best decision.
