With a plethora of makeup brush options readily available, the question of which makeup brush to use, and where can be a true conundrum. There’s a makeup brush for any and every need! Over the next few weeks I’ll be taking your on a series describing which makeup brushes Today I’m going to show you a few makeup brushes I like specifically for your cheeks.
Each brush serves a specific purpose.
The brushes I’m featuring in this post are some that I use all the time. Even if you don’t use these specific brushes, these are the types to look for when you’re makeup brush shopping. The good news is that great brushes are available at a wide variety of price ranges and materials, whether animal hair or synthetic fibers. I love brushes that range from IT Cosmetics to the elf Cosmetics.
I’ll confess when I first saw this brush I thought it would be impossible – the size! But it’s truly the only one I’ve used for a few years now. If you want to concentrate the color, I recommend holding the bristles closer together like in this picture.
The Bdellium Tools 942 brush is perfect for contour. The angled brush allows you to get right into the contours of your face.
For highlighting there are so many options and it really is personal preference. I like brushes such as the Real Techniques Contour Brush (from their kit of face brushes) and Smith Brush 122 because they allow you to precisely target and blend out highlighting powders, creams or liquids.
When I used the elf Power Glow Liquid Highlighter, the Smith Brush made it so easy to tap the liquid into my skin.
For a very diffused look, a fan brush can come in handy. Big or small, fan brushes give good glow without being overwhelming.
The small brush is from the cute unicorn brush set I picked up a while ago, and the larger one is Morphe M495. That Morphe looks monsterous, but it’s really handy! I guess it’s a similar feeling to the Real Techniques blush brush – it looks impossible, but it really works well to create a diffused makeup look.
What are some of your favorite makeup brushes for your cheeks?
