I have received super many questions about which makeup brushes I use, so now comes a post about it! :)
In addition, I will be better at showing the makeup brushes when I do step-by-step make-up. You can peek Modern Mom now, you will see which brushes I have used for today's smokey eyes! :)
To begin with, I can say that I use as many different brushes as I like, I have so many.
You should wash your brushes 1-2 times a week, but instead of doing that I simply take a new brush with about the same shape!
Then I wash them all at once, and then it looks like this! :) Large towel on the floor to be able to dry everyone.
So instead of talking about specific brushes and brands, I thought I would explain which ones sort of makeup brushes I use for different areas.
And for the sake of simplicity, I have only photographed brushes from this makeup brush set with 24 makeup brushes :)
Except for the Kabuki brush which is from Creative Make Up, and which unfortunately is not sold there anymore.
My two favorite brushes that I use for the eyelid.
I use it a little less when I apply the eye shadow.
The slightly larger one, I blur the edges with!
This brush is like the two in the upper picture, but a little smaller and harder.
Used mostly at the bottom of the lower lash line and in the corner of the eye, where I want a smoky effect on a small area.
This is larger than the brushes in the top picture.
I do not use it very much, but most people think it is nicer with a larger and softer brush when you blur the edges. Then this is perfect!
A narrow eyeliner brush for liquid eyeliner, absolutely perfect I think!
An oblique brush.
Used for eyebrows, and if I want a sharp line when I apply eye shadow.
A fairly flat and hard brush for the lips.
This one also has a kind of cork, so that you do not smear lipstick in the make-up bag :)
Kabuki brush to apply powder foundation.
Small, compact and soft.
Is looking for a good kabuki brush for the webshop :)
A foundation brush, flat and compact.
I use this for my Foundation, and dab in places that need more coverage (for example pimples)
Fluffy powder brushes.
I use this for powder and sun powder, gives an even result!
Inclined blush brush.
Used to apply blush on the cheeks.
