Ultimate Eyeshadow Brush Guide

The best route to an effortless eye look? The right brushes, of course! Here are our ultimate eyeshadow brush guide and how to put them to good use

1.The Fan Brush
This multi-use brush is actually more of a face brush and works wonders at applying highlighter to the high points of the face, but it is also a handy tool for sweeping away eyeshadow mishaps under the eyes.

2.The Mini Dome Brush
This small dome-shaped brush is used to blur lines and create a smoky effect, so once you have lined your lids with a pencil eyeliner, go in with this brush to smudge the edges. It can also be used to create extra definition in the crease area. Because it’s small in size, you can darken the crease more precisely.

3.The Eyeliner
An extra-fine-tipped brush perfect for applying a precise even liner to the eyes.

4.The Camouflager
Disguise those dark circles with a brush designed to be used with a ‘wet’ product. This brush applies concealer precisely, allowing for good coverage where you need it most. Use the pointed tip to camouflage spots and the flat side for larger areas, such as broken veins around the nose and under-eye area.

5.The Blender Brush
When it comes to achieving a polished application of eyeshadow, always have a blender brush in your kit. Once you’ve layered on some pigment with an applicator brush, this dome-shaped hero will help create a seamless finish.

6.The Angled Brush
The angled edge of this brush is perfect for getting a precise ‘tick’ at the outer corner of your eye. A handy tip to keep in mind is to first dab the brush on the back of your hand to clean off any excess product and then go in as close to the lash line as possible, creating a clean line.
