BEAUTY: TOP 5 EYE BRUSHES
Along with an excessive makeup collection often comes an even bigger collection of makeup brushes. Each makeup brush i own comes with a makeup brush of the same purpose that always stays left behind in it's pride of place on my dressing table. Having only one face and only two eyes makes it impossible for me to use each brush in my stash on a daily basis, and there is a set collection of brushes that i reach for on a more regular basis. I decided to take you through my favourite eye brushes which i managed to whittle down to just five..
NANSHY BLENDING EYE BRUSH - LINK(*): The first on the brushes list, is a beautifully soft blending brush from Nanshy. This is part of the Masterful Collection which has yet to launch, but you can get more information and a 20% off code here! The flat blending property of this brush makes it perfect for applying colour through the crease along with adding a dash of colour on the lower lash line. It's one of the more multi-tasking brushes of the selection as it also works brilliantly at applying a wash of colour all over the lid, while it's semi-dense bristles work at blending out all those unwanted harsh lines. It's also the perfect shape for applying colour to the outer third of the eye.
CROWN C441 BLENDING CREASE BRUSH - LINK: Another blending brush, but unlike the other this Crown brush works solely at blending out harsh lines and blending colour through the crease. This domed shape blending brush has loosely packed bristles which work at blending any colour. Unlike many other blending brushes, with this brush you don't do most of the work. This brush has the ability to blend out colour seamlessly without being too time consuming. It's also perfect for blending a transition colour through the crease before creating a smokey or any dramatic eye.
CROWN C213 CHISEL MINI SMUDGER - LINK: When it comes to smudging out colour on the lower lash line this brush from Crown Brushes is first rate. It's densely packed bristles make it super easy to smudge colour onto the lower lash line. It's the perfect small flat shape for blending out eyeliner for a more smokey look while not making it look ridiculous and messy. This brush is definitely the go to for a good smokey colour on the lower lash line, and in my eyes is essential for a smokey eye in general, alongside a good blending brush.. obvs.
CROWN C431 PRECISION DETAIL BRUSH - LINK: A pencil brush is definitely not an essential, but is definitely a good one to have in your stash. This one from Crown Brushes is the perfect tapered shape smoking colour onto the lower lash line and smudging out eyeliner. However, this brush is also perfect for applying brow bone highlight as it the perfect shape and size. Its also suitable for applying colour on the outer V of the eye pre-blending!
CROWN C208 CHISEL DELUXE FLUFF - LINK: A supersized flat shader brush to reduce the manual labour involved in applying a wash of colour to the lid. This brush makes it easy to apply colour to the full area of the lid in just one go. The densely packed bristles make it perfect for packing on colour to get the shadow to it's full colour and pigmentation intensity. It's definitely an essential in any collection, especially for all you lazy, the less work the better kind of gals.
And that's it, my full guide to my favourite makeup brushes. From blending to packing on the colour, these brushes have got you covered..
