Choosing The Right Professional Makeup Brushes
Many makeup brushes are too big or too small for your face, leaving scratches and red marks. The right brush will feel comfortable on your skin as you apply foundation, blush, eye shadow, lipstick, or lip gloss. Here is a guide to help you choose the right one:
The beauty industry is constantly changing and evolving, with new products coming out daily. New brushes are invented every three seconds! It’s tough to know what the definition of ‘professional’ actually means when it comes to makeup brushes (or anything else). To make things easier for you, I’ve put together a list of different styles and brands that have been through rigorous testing with professional makeup artists in mind.
Nowadays, almost all brands offer custom makeup brushes sets that include the necessities that an artist would need daily. You won’t need to purchase each brush or set; one custom kit will have all the brushes you could need. Most of these outfits also include a case to carry them in and are usually priced under $150.
Additionally, you can read about the process of how a brush is made and what materials were used to make it. You will better understand the difference between natural and synthetic hair, learn how to tell them apart, and understand what the different grades are. When it comes to deciding which brush is right for you, information is indeed power.
Natural Bristle Brushes: Natural brushes are made from animal hair such as sable, pony, goat, and badger. Quality natural brushes are expensive due to the rarity of the hair. The better the brush head’s quality, the higher the price you will pay. Many makeup artists find natural brushes to be softer than synthetic brushes, and they blend makeup much better than synthetic ones.
The right brushes are essential when it comes to makeup application to achieve that polished and professional look. I hope this article helps you find the right brush for you.
