Different Kinds of Makeup Brushes
There’s a makeup brush for every single makeup product out there - and even then, they’ll differ when it comes to what the brush itself is made of and the shape it has!
Foundation Brush: This type of face makeup brush has a few different shapes - the most beginner-friendly is a paddle brush, but flat-top kabuki and dome foundation brushes are also great choices for foundation brushes.
Powder Brush: Powder makeup brushes are large and fluffy - perfect for diffusing setting powders over your skin. Pro MUA tip: never go straight from your powder compact to your face, especially if you want a non-cakey finish. Tap your brush first to get any excess powder off the brush - then you’re ready to start setting your face!
Eyeshadow Brush: Eyeshadow brushes come in a huge variety of shapes, depending on whether you’re adding a concentrated shock of colour to your eyelids or if you’re just adding a subtle shadow. Flat eyeshadow brushes are the best makeup brushes for applying pigment to your eyelids.
Pro MUA tip: spritz your makeup brush with setting spray to intensify any eyeshadow you use! Small, fluffy eye makeup brushes are perfect for blending away any harsh edges for a flawlessly diffused eyeshadow look.
