Make up brushes are made either from synthetic or natural fibers. Natural fiber brushes are better because natural hair, such as that of goat, squirrel, sable and mongoose, include pores - tiny pockets, which collect color and allow even placement. Make up brushes are available as brush sets with a built in mirror. Small make up sets contain 5 or less brushes, medium sets contain 6 to 8 brushes and large sets contain 9 or more brushes.
Soft and durable high quality brushes for the face are used to apply and blend products, contour and buff the face. Buffer brushers help you to buff, polish and blend powder or emollient-based products. Contour brushes blend and contour all powder products. The brow comb brushes are handy for brushing and shaping the eyebrow. The blush brushes are used for shading and highlighting the cheeks and face with powder and blush. The powder brushes are for applying face powder and for full and dense dusting of loose or pressed powder on face or body. These are good for blush application also. Foundation brushes are essential for applying cream or liquid foundation evenly.
Make up brushes for the eye include shader brushes, lash brushes for applying mascara products, and the brow groomer to groom and blend brow color and to brush the brows for a natural look. The eyeliner brush is used to line the eyes with liquid or cream products. The fluff brushes are suitable for the application of eye shadow to the eyelid area.
Lip brushes are used to apply lipstick, lip-gloss and lip conditioners. The lip liner brush is for controlled lipstick or eyeliner application. The retractable lip brush is a compact lip brush for the handbag.
Make up brushes must be washed on a regular basis with a tiny amount of shampoo and warm water. Then, allow them to dry with bristles positioned over the edge of a sink. Brush cleansers can be used to clean, disinfect and condition the brush fibers.
