To learn how to choose brushes, you do not need to be a professional make-up artist. Our guide
will help you navigate the world of “tools” of beauty.

Let get started!

First Step. Decide on the material

Brushes made from natural (sable hair, ponies) and synthetic nap (acrylic, plastic). The natural product is good
easily for using dry means – blush, shadows. They do not hammer into the pile quickly wash out.

Synthetic is suitable for liquid cosmetics – foundation, fluid. This material absorbs fewer products (more giving
away the skin), so synthetic brushes better natural.

Second Step.Choose brush size and hardness

It is also important to select a brush in size so that, as makeup artists say, it fits into the area where you are going to
apply makeup. Bristles should not be rough and stiff and must have some degree of flexibility.

This tool, like cosmetics, is worth starting to test. Check the maneuverability of the brush, holding it in different
situations on the outside of the palm.

Third Step. Choose brushes, depending on their purpose

You can divide the makeup tools into several subclasses – for the eyes, lips, and face. Moreover, in each row,
there are essential brushes – those that help create competent makeup.

How to care for brushes


Even if you wash your face thoroughly, when you come in contact with the skin, the keratinized skin, the cream,
and the powder get into the brush. This cocktail is an excellent medium for the reproduction of bacteria, and for preventing
their appearance in your beauty tools, you need to wash your brushes every time after the makeup ritual or at least twice a week.


Furthermore, you can clean brushes in two ways: with the help of professional disinfectants, which sold in cosmetic shops or create
a cleanser yourself at home.


In the first case, spray the disinfector on the entire surface of the bristles; wait until it absorbs, next put the tissue in the form.


The second method requires you to spend a little time, shampoo and water. Pour in a small container of warm water,
add the shampoo there, and stir. Dip the brushes into the resulting solution for 10-20 seconds, then rinse under running
cold water. Seal the brushes, give them a shape with a napkin so far, and dry it on a towel horizontally. With vertical drying,
water will pour into the fixtures, eroding the adhesive and weakening the design of the brush.
