So I have been asked to write a blog to explain which eye brushes are needed to create a simple, everyday look.
For a simple look you only need 3 brushes. Get a decent quality brush. If the hairs are going all over the place, or if the brush doesn’t seem to “pick up” the eye shadow, you might need to get a better brush.
First you need a highlight brush. This brush you will use to highlight your brow bone – just under the eyebrow. It’s not real big, and it might be a little dome shaped.
Next you will need an all over face brush. This will look like the highlight brush, but it will be bigger and flatter. These flat bristles are designed to really pick up your eyeshadow. This is the perfect shaped brush to apply a base color (if you are using multiple colors, or even if you are doing something funky, like a smokey eye).
For comparison sake, I have put the all over shadow brush and the highlight brush side by side.
The third and final brush you will need is a small tapered brush, or a small fluffy brush. You can use this the define your crease and also blend the lid.
Now, to enhance your naturally beautiful eye! I will be using the Naked Palette from Urban Decay.
First apply eyelid primer. This will help your eyeshadow last all day. My fave is Urban Decay’s Primer Potion.
To really frame the eye. You can go ahead and apply eye liner the the outer third of your upper and lower lash line. Then you can top it off with mascara. Now your easy, simple eye look is done!
