One way or another, an enjoyable evening out starts with preparation. We wash away the cares of the day and choose our favourite clothes appropriate to the occasion to look well. Last but not least, we tackle the important factor of applying make up, then fine brushes in great assortment are readily available these days for applying makeup, making the task much easier. Makeup brushes are indispensable.
Before you begin that makeup session, here are some essential makeup brush application tips to consider. There are five popular and basic types which will assist you greatly. Start with a blush brush. This brush will be slightly tilted so you can apply the blush into the hollow of your cheek. Many like to put blush on the apple of the cheek and this is good but be certain that it’s right for you. It is best to do the hollow of your cheek first and then if you want a little more brightness, highlight the apple of your cheek. Smile and the apple of your cheek appears! Study others and you can easily locate it too; it will be the area which becomes colored on exercise or excitement which both draw colour to the cheeks.
Your next brush is a high quality eyeliner brush. This brush should be very thin at the tip and slim in length. This will help reach between the lashes and the outer corner of the eye. Eyeliner applied correctly can define the attractive aspect of your eyes. Be sure to have a reliable eye shadow brush. This brush should have a flat edge so you can get into the crease of the eye and corners. The brush will also be used to blend colors together and should be soft and pliable. Use color to emphasize the color of your eyes. For example, green eyes are beautiful, when pink, plum or light brown shades of shadow are applied. The color of your shadow should never be the same color as your eyes. Gold or bronze can also accentuate the color of your eyes, bring them alive. Experiment with the many colors offered.
Let’s not forget the lips. Your lip brush will also be thin at the tip, so your lipstick can flow with the shape of your lips. After all we want the entire face looking beautiful by focusing attention on the very best of the features given. This brush can also be used for lip liner if you decide to use it. Remember your liner should be close to the lipstick shade as not to stand out and look like a deliberate outline.
Another makeup brush application tip is to use a full brush for all over application of face powder, highlighter or shimmer. This brush should be a full fat brush. If you decide to put shimmer on after applying your makeup, use this brush and be sure to tap off any excess. Use makeup sparingly is a good motto to follow, both for the face and your purse.
Nothing comes without some effort. It is very important that you keep your brushes clean. They should be washed weekly with mild soapy water and be sure to rinse well and lay flat to dry; this helps keep their shape. Brushes for every aspect of applying make up definitely help us in painting a natural look clever people can achieve by using tips gleaned from the experience of others and practice.
