Now, let’s look at some of the types of brushes that we’ll be using throughout this tutorial.
Types of Brushes
Different brushes have different functions. One would be useful for packing on the eyeshadow, the other for blending and another for smoking out the lower lash line. Let’s look at a few of them.
Flat Stiff Brush
This brush can be used for applying eyeshadow on the eyelid, as well as under the lower lash line. A flat brush is best for packing the product onto the eyelid. The MAC 239 is a great product for this. This also works extremely well when you want to apply a glitter pigment as the stiff nature of the brush helps in picking up the product easily.
The pencil brush is used to apply the product onto the lower lash line. This is great for when you’re smoking out the lower lash line, or if you want to create a soft look. You can also use this at the crease to create a soft crease line. It works well at the outer corners of the eye where you want to add intensity as well.
Stiff Dome Brush
This brush is perfect for applying and blending out colors. It’s especially useful when you are using more than one color and want to create a smooth transition without removing the shade differences.
Fluffy Dome Brush
The fluffy dome brush is for blending, blending, and then – you guessed it right – blending some more. It helps you achieve that flawless eyeshadow transition from one shade to the other. It helps to diffuse any harsh lines and makes the transition look smooth.
