The secret to a flawless application? Makeup brushes. Without the right tools, blending becomes a lot harder and the results just won’t be as great. This spring we have lots of new brushes to choose from to help us look our best. Let’s take a look:
Ecotools Complexion Collection
Revolutionize your beauty routine with our NEW makeup-skincare hybrid line — the EcoTools® Complexion Collection! Combining science and beauty, it’s designed with specific cuts for enhanced performance to maximize natural beauty and aid in common skincare concerns, like fine lines, dark circles and oily skin.
CORRECTING CONCEALER BRUSH ($4.99)
A duo-fiber blend of short, wavy bristles and long, straight bristles pick up and distribute powder or liquid concealer for a precise spot coverage of dark circles, redness or other imperfections. Compact bristles precisely buff and blend the product into skin for perfect airbrushed coverage.
MATTIFYING FINISH BRUSH ($8.99)
A unique duo-fiber design creates a flawless finish with either pressed or loose powder by blending long, straight bristles and short, wavy bristles. The short bristles pick up the perfect amount of product, while the long bristles disperse product evenly and smoothly for complete control and buildable coverage.
SKIN PERFECTING BRUSH ($7.99)
The straight and dense bristles are specifically designed to smoothly and evenly apply BB/CC creams, and the rounded edge of the brush is ideal for precise coverage around the eyes and nose.
EYE PERFECTING BRUSH ($6.99)
The brush features uniquely cut, rounded tip bristles that mimics the shape of a finger for easy application under and around the eyes without tugging sensitive skin or transferring oils from the hands. Designed with straight, firm and dense bristles, the Eye Perfecting Brush allows for optimal bending and coverage to take on fine lines and even the darkest of under eye circles.
You can also buy all the brushes together in a set for $20.99. It’s available at ecotools.
Real Techniques Bold Metals
The Pixiwoo sisters have done it again. They have used their expertise to create a new range of brushes with fibre bristles and geometric handles that help brushes stay in place as you do your makeup. Rather than the usual rubber, the brushes are made of metal and look gorgeous in gold, silver, and rose gold. There are seven available:
100 ARCHED POWDER BRUSH ($25.99)
This domed-cut, powder brush sweeps perfectly across the face for flawless application of pressed or loose powders.
101 TRIANGLE FOUNDATION BRUSH ($23.99)
This brush is uniquely designed with 3 different sides for a flawless coverage. The largest of the three sides is ideal to cover large areas of the face. Use the cross-hatching technique to blend the product into the skin for full coverage. The 2 angled sides can be used for full coverage under eye, and for blending seamlessly around the nose. The pointed tip is an added bonus for spot coverage. Since the brush has 3 sides you can use 3 colors, and still blend flawlessly.
200 OVAL SHADOW BRUSH ($15.99)
It has a full, round shape for all-over eyelid application, and seamless blending of powder and cream eyeshadows. It can also be used for detailed highlighting of the brow bone.
201 POINTED CREASE BRUSH ($15.99)
It has densely packed, tapered bristles which helps to apply eye color into the crease for a more dimensional look. The firm tip is ideal for blending color along the lash line.
202 ANGLED LINER BRUSH ($15.99)
Ideal for precision application, it has firm, slanted bristles that hug the lash line for smooth, even application of eyeliner.
