Eye Brushes

Fluff Brush

A fluff brush has densely packed fibres which are good for applying powder eyeshadows.  It's also good for blending out eyeshadows.  These come in different sizes, so look for one that best suits your eye size.

Angled Shading Brush

Just like the fluff brush, this has densely packed bristles which are good for powder products.  The angle makes it good for applying and blending eyeshadow in the crease area.  Again, these come in different sizes.

Flat Shader Blush

The synthetic hairs in this flat brush make it a great choice for both powder and cream products.  The hairs don't soak up cream products, and you can use the flat surface to pat on powder shadows to really build the colour.

Short Shader Brush

Short Shader brushes are good for packing on dense amounts of eyeshadow.  This comes in handy when doing the 'outer v' section of your eye.  It's shape also makes it good for applying eyeshadow along the lower last line, or smudging out eyeliner.

Flat Definer Brush

A flat definer works well when used to push products right into the last line when lining the eye, particularly with powder or cream products.

Pencil Brush

Pencil brushes allow you to place colour in small areas, such as the outer v, or lower lash lines.  It's also good for smudging pencil and kohl liner for a smokey eye.

Fluffy Tapered Blending Brush

Another brush that works well with powder products.  For larger eyes, this works well for depositing soft colour in the crease.  Smaller eyes may find it brings the colour too high up the brow bone.  It also works well for applying a highlight.

Tapered Blending Brush

A stiff tapered blending brush lets you deposit more colour into a smaller crease area than a fluffy tapered blending brush.  They're also good for blending out any harsh lines.

Eyeliner Brush

Eyeliner brushes come in different thicknesses.  Use them for liquid or gel liner.  Generally, the thicker the brush, the easier it is to control.

Angled Brush

An angled brush is a staple in a makeup kit. They can be used for lining with gel or liquid liners, winging out pencil liner, and filling in eyebrows.  These come in different sizes to suit all needs.

Mascara Brush

If you're doing makeup on others, a lash brush is essential for applying mascara hygienically.  They're also good for combing brows into place and applying brow gel.
