9 autumn make-up trends that you'll LOVE
If you haven't tried applying the primer with a special brush yet, it's time to take up the challenge. Firstly, because this method allows for precise and more convenient application, secondly, it is "cleaner" than in the case of applying a cosmetic with fingers or a sponge. We suggest what kind of brush for the foundation you should choose when you start your adventure with professional makeup.
Invest in a primer brush
It turns out that the brush application method is fast, simple and pleasant, and what is most important, it guarantees a natural, very effective makeup. Why should I buy a primer brush? He's got a lot of advantages:
- Thanks to it, you will cover a larger area of skin in one go (than with your fingers),
- is evenly distributed
- It is much easier to keep it clean than a sponge applicator (it does not absorb skin and cosmetic secretions so much),
- it's more comfortable to manoeuvre it,
- is better suited for application of foundation on oily and mixed skin.
The brush should be made of high quality artificial hair. Avoid natural bristle brushes as they quickly absorb the fluid and prevent it from being applied to the skin. A perfect brush should have slippery bristles to achieve a uniform, transparent make-up without the mask effect. It is also important that it is small in size. The shape and size of the brush will allow you to reach hard-to-reach places, such as the wings of the nose, corners of the mouth, or the inner part of the upper eyelid.
Two types of primer brush
If you want to evenly cover and mask enlarged pores or scars, use a flat top brush. It's flattened, compact and thick. His hair is fine and soft. The shape of the brush allows you to reach the most inaccessible places. Before using this type of brush, you should moisten it so that the cosmetic spreads smoothly. Even if you use a super hiding undercoat, the flat top brush will perfectly spread it over your face without streaks. And if you happen to apply too much cosmetic in one place, this type of brush will make it easy for you to level it. Its absolute advantage is that it allows for precise distribution of the cosmetic and perfect finish of the make-up. The end result will be stunning.
