Beautician Note Class 5

12. Contour brush

The contour brush is a hard one to pick out of a crowd simply because it can appear in so many different ways. The bristles on some are cut sharp and straight across, while others may take on more of an “S” shape to hug the shape of your cheekbones. The slanted contour brush is the most versatile and makes it easier to contour for your face shape by blending your contour powder cleanly and precisely beneath your cheekbones, jawline, and forehead. Use a brush with blunt bristles and a sharp edge for a sharper sculpt, or use one with a softer slanted shape for a subtle shade.

How to use a contour brush:

Swirl the brush into your contour powder, tap off the excess (important), then gently glide the brush back and forth below your cheekbones to emphasize your natural contours. For an even more chiseled look, reload the brush and swirl it under your jawline and along your hairline as well.

13. Highlighter brush

The shape of your highlighter brush totally depends on the level of glow you want. Use a long, tapered brush or a fan brush (more on that later) with very long bristles for a more diffused effect, or grab a brush with short, dense bristles to make even a chef highlighter look super-bright and opaque.

Swirl your brush over a powder face highlighter, tap off the excess, then lightly sweep and blend the brush over the tops of your cheekbones, brow bones, Cupid’s bow, and anywhere else the light naturally hits your face. Wanted an even brighter glow? Spritz your brush first with a setting spray to enhance the pigment payoff.

14. Fan brush

Finally! A brush with a name that actually makes sense with the shape! The bristles on this brush are fanned out and flat to give it a very distinct silhouette that’s much different from all the others. Imagine if you were to take a powder brush and pinch the bristles at the base to flatten them—that’s a fan brush. These can come in smaller sizes (like an inch across) with sparse bristles or they can expand up to a couple of inches at their widest point and be packed with dense brush hairs.

How to use a fan brush:

With a side-to-side motion (like a windshield wiper), use the bristles of a large or medium fan brush to sweep away fallout or excess setting powder under your eyes or apply highlighter along your cheekbones. And if you’re using a smaller brush, you can even use it to apply mascara for a clump-free finish. Rub the fan brush against the wand of your go-to mascara , then press the pigment against the roots to load up the base and run it through the length of your lashes.

                                         15. Flat eyeshadow brush

These brushes are known for their tapered shape and soft, fluffy bristles to help you really blend, blend, and blend without scratching the hell out of your lids.

How to use an eyeshadow blending brush:

Swipe the fluffy bristles into the crease of your lids with a windshield-wiper motion to apply your eyeshadow for a diffused look, and swirl it around the edges of your eyes when transitioning between colors or blending multiple shades on top of one another.

                            17. Pencil brush

A pencil brush kind of does it all: smudges out your eyeliner, pushes eyeshadow straight into precisely blend beneath your lashes, etc. When the other brushes  your lash line, it helps if you are too big or too fluffy, grab this stiff, dense, tapered brush—especially if you plan to do a Smokey eye or any hazy, blended-out shadow.

18. Smudge brush

The short, super-dense, packed bristles make this brush ideal for packing on the pigment exactly where you want it, then smearing it out. Because the bristles are wider and flatter than the precision pencil brush, this smudging brush is better for using along the upper and lower lash lines.

How to use a smudge brush:

Dip the brush straight into the eyeshadow and run it along your lash line for a thick, Smokey line, or use it to diffuse and set your eyeliner. Here’s what I mean: Apply your kohl or pencil liner, then use the brush to blend the edge of the eyeliner outward. Then, use the same brush to go back over the eyeliner with a similar eyeshadow shade. This will not only set the color underneath but also layer textures to create depth so your Smokey eye doesn’t look one-dimensional.

            19. Eyeliner brush

An eyeliner brush is another one of those tools that can look a million different ways, but no matter the shape of the handle or the bristles, it’s always going to be one of your smallest (if not your smallest) brushes. Some have tapered and pointed tips, some have flattened and straight or slanted bristles (like the one shown here), and on some eyeliner brushes, the stem is bent at a 45-degree angle to make it a little easier to get into tight spaces.

20. Eyebrow brush

You’ve definitely seen—and probably even brushed—your brows with a spolia or comb before, but a dual-ended eyebrow brush like this one also has flat, blunt, and angled bristles to help you draw individual brow hairs using brow gel or powder.

Use the spolia side first to shape your brows, then flip it over to the firm, slanted bristles on this small eyebrow brush to fill in sparse brows with eyebrow powder .

21. Lip brush

Easily confused for a concealer brush, the lip brush has the same flattened, curved shape but is usually smaller so that it can fit in the cupid’s bow and define the lips. Most of the time it also comes with a cap so that you can stick it in your handbag for touch-ups. You might think lip brushes are only for professional makeup artists, but if you line your lips , you’ll find a lip brush to be really helpful for diffusing harsh lines from your lip liner and blending it into your lipstick

How to use a lip brush:

Trace your lips with lip liner, then run the bristles of the lip brush along the inside edge of the line to soften it. If you’re using your own products, you can swipe the brush right on the lipstick to pick up the product for a more precise application. And if you want to create your own custom lip shade, mix together multiple lip colors with your brush, then use it to apply the product.
