Brushes (Intro)

Posted on: January 25, 2010

Tomorrow I will publish blogs for people starting to experience with makeup. As everyone knows, the key to makeup is application. So we will talk about the essence of application: Brushes.

My Brushes at a Glance

Now you may tell me that fingers, applicators that come with a makeup palette, sponges, or q-tips work too. I am not going to disagree with you. They come in handy once in a while. But to bring out eyeshadows and powders to their full potential; and the most efficient, hygienic way of applying makeup is using the brushes.

The best brushes you can get are MAC brushes. They are designed by makeup professionals and hand sculpted with fine materials such as natural animal hairs and nickel-plated brass ferrules. Unfortunately MAC brushes are relatively expensive. But I assure you, with proper use and periodical care, your MAC brushes can last for years.

I will recommend six brushes for beginners: Three for eyes and three for face makeup. I will finish this series with some brush purchasing tips as well.

Stay tuned 😉
