Many people will be confused by the problem of unrecognized make-up brush. I was no exception before. So the little friend who promised to leave a message wrote a little tutorial about brush this week.


Common make-up brush


Now, let's recognize these brushes while making up:


1. Preparation before Makeup: no brush required


Face washing, water emulsion skin care, sun protection, pre makeup milk


2. hits the foundation: need to use the foundation brush.


Round and flat head Foundation Brush


Flat head Foundation Brush: flat head foundation brush head width is about 2cm, I usually use foundation, it can take care of some details, such as eye corner, mouth corner, nose wing. In addition, it can also be used for paste like highlights and shadows.


Round head Foundation Brush: this foundation brush is the easiest to use, and it is not easy to appear brush marks. You can brush out the thin and sticker foundation, because the makeup is thin and suitable for girls with good skin.


3. Concealer: you need to use the concealer brush.


The brush head of the concealer brush is very small, and the size of the brush head is about 0.3cm.

When using, stick the concealer with a brush, pat on the defect that needs to be covered, then use the finger or sponge to flutter the edge, allowing the concealer to blend naturally with the surrounding skin.

The powder brush should be the largest one among the common make-up brushes. Its brush head diameter is about 5cm.

Eyeliner brush should be used with eye liner.

10. Lip: need lip brush


Lip brush is my favorite make-up brush. After all, girls' persistence in lipstick can not be described by words. Moreover, classic red lips are my favorite. Only with lip brush can I draw smooth lip lines.

The lip brush usually has a brush head cover, or it can be made into a retractable design to prevent pollution.


Everyone has different habits and different shapes of brush heads. I'm more used to using the lip brush with square head.


Other make-up brushes - sector brush:


The brush head is fan-shaped, about 10cm wide, which is used to sweep off the dirt on the face, such as eye shadow residue, eyebrows when repairing eyebrows and so on. This brush can be replaced by other make-up tools, so it is not commonly used.
