Makeup Brushes 101
Hi, this is Lisa Sim from Sim Minerals and you’re watching WatchMojo.com. So, today we’re gonna talk about essential makeup tools, your brushes. First one, hands down, is going to be the Kabuki brush. I love this one. It‘s compact. It’s tight. It’s smooth on the face and you can use it for your foundation application, powder bronze or blush. Got it? Good. This one is called a Chisel contour. You have different sides to use. So we have the flat side, the apples and then we have the narrow side, and we can actually sculpt with that so we can go in and do the contour.
Then, we go into this one, it’s called a chisel deluxe oval fluff. It’s what I like about this again, it’s chisel type. Chisel mean it goes from short to long. So, it deploys and blends at the same time. So, it’s something that easily sweep across the entire lid in like two strokes. This is the chisel double angle. This are like idiot prof brushes, right here. There is like four sides to it and there is the point in the middle so that you can do the entire lid. You can use the point and work underneath the arch of the brow. You can take that point, apply it in the outer corner, it will be is, let’s say between the lash line and the crease and fill that in. That’s gonna give the dub.
This is called a mini deluxe fluff coz it got two ends. You have the mini and then you have the deluxe fluff. The same thing, it’s like contoured shaped like little half moons so it’s great for applying the entire lower lid when you’re talking about doing smoky eyes. You fill in with the larger one, you flip it around then you line with the other side. You can also use it for lightly filling in the brow. Something totally crucial, this is called a fan brush.
What I like about this is its multiple applications. We can use it first of all for getting loose powder and just dubbing it on the top of the cheekbone, not when you are doing a big smoky eye and all that black stuff starts falling down, it will be caught in the powder and then afterwards, all you could do is brush it away, it’s not gonna be embedded in your skin and it’s actually gonna have a little highlight as well because the lose powder will leave something behind. You can actually use it for bronzer, the tallest parts of the hair are gonna hit the tallest parts of the cheeks with the part that stands at the most. We can actually hit the temple, just gonna do a C and that’s gonna sculpt the cheek bone. This is actually another fan brush but it’s made out of badger hair. Usually, all the hair that is used in making cosmetic brushes is considered byproduct. I don’t know what that really means.
We have the covered lip brush. This one is my favorite. It’s kinda like a square pulled apart and what I like about is you just slide it up, it’s ready to go. You can always load it, close it retouch when you’re ready. I hate getting lip brushes. I have a cover on it because the next thing I know, I have no more cover left.
Last but far by least, it’s the cleansed T-tapered angle. Like, I don’t know, you can’t survive without one of these. So, this is made from sable hair. What I love about sable is that it’s extremely smooth but it’s very firm. So those hairs are going to like to be interwoven together. They’re really gonna keep a sharp line. So, that’s perfect for when you kneed to really define a lash line, the beauty of it is that it’s perfect for wet or dry application.
So Christina, you maybe asking yourself how do I maintain my brushes? How do I keep them in perfect working order? Say, you can take a towel, you can do a quick cleanse. This one is like an ST alcohol. It’s a grain based alcohol. It should be less drying than conventional alcohols, but this have smoke color, out of the brush and gets it ready to be able to use again. Just drips it off onto the towel, reshape it and leave on the edge to dry. Same thing goes for when you’re actually washing your brushes. You can use a lot of warm water in case it’s saturated.
Take a little bit of really gentle shampoo, the same one that you use for yourself and just do little circles. It’s gonna make lots and lots of bubbles and you’re gonna rinse it until there’s nothing left. Once that runs clear, that there’s nothing left in it, reshape it so it looks like how it was supposed to be the always leave it on the edge of a table. Never, never, never put your brushes standing up because you know what happens? Al the water goes into the root and that’s where it starts getting funky and when you do that, you’re gonna preserve your brushes forever. Thanks a lot.
