I am all about teaching how to create the easiest way to achieve makeup looks, and this is one of my favorite things to teach! I am all about doing your makeup fast and flawless, so having the right tools for this is essential! I get a lot of questions about which brushes I use for my quick eye makeup looks, so today I thought I’d share my favorites and what they do! Check out my 3 essential makeup brushes for the perfect eye look!
For an easy smokey eye, you primarily need 3 brushes:
A more dense blending brush for precision work
A super fluffy brush for blending all the harsh lines
A flat defined brush for packing on shimmers/glitters
For ShadowSense, I love using a synthetic brush for blending in my crease, and using a fluffy brush to make sure everything is blended. I then use another synthetic brush for packing on my favorite glitters! The nice thing about ShadowSense is that since it’s a cream to powder formula so you can get away with using synthetic or natural brush hairs for your makeup!
Here are my favorite brushes and those that I recommend:
- Sigma E44 FIRM BLENDER BRUSH: This brush is amazing for blending shadows into the crease with precision. This is great when you want to keep darker colors closer to your lid and crease. It’s also great for blending an all over the lid color for a super fast pop on lazy days!
- Sigma E25 BLENDING BRUSH: This is a powerful little brush and it can do sooooo much! It’s amazing at blending out any shade and it works great with powder and cream shadows! I’ve been using this brush for about 6 years now and it never fails me!
- MAC 242 Synthetic Shader Brush: This brush is a super popular brush for a reason! It’s the perfect shape and size for packing on glitters, shimmers and anything you want with precision!
All of these brushes make it so easy to achieve a flawless eye look! If you’d like to see me use these in action, head to my VIP Facebook Group to see my weekly tutorials in all things beauty!
