Makeup brushes are very important. They help you apply your makeup products correctly to give you the desired effect. I want to introduce you to Glad Lash's 7 Piece Sable Brush Set and explain what each one does and how it can help with your makeup application! The price point is outstanding, you get 7 brushes for a very reasonable ask. You can use them daily AND travel with them to work or on vacay!
Let's start my review with the foundation or stipple brush which is the only two tone brush in the set. This can be used to help apply liquid foundation evenly on you skin. You can use it in a sweeping motion or with a stippling effect to achieve the desired look. Usually, if you stipple, it creates more of an opaque feel as opposed to using painting strokes. You may also use this brush for cream blushes to blend into your cheeks or onto your eyelids if you like monochromatic looks.
The fullest brush is for setting powder, loose or compact. More so for loose in my opinion but the makeup police will not come after you if you use it for a compact. This voluminous tool will give you a dusting of powder to set your makeup. It's great for those who want to look finished but not overdone.
Next up is the blush brush which has the all white bristles. For powder blushes this makeup tool will gently add color to those cheeks without over doing it. Be sure to tap off excess blush dust before applying to your face. Of course, similar to your creams, you can add this powder blush color to your eyes as well. Always optional.
All the brushes you need to complete your perfect look.
Your eyeshadow brushes are the ones with the rounded tip and the angular tip with the fuller bristles. The flat one is to apply shadow to the larger, flatter eyelid areas and to pat or press the color on as opposed to the angular brush that is meant for your crease eyeshadow color or to smudge a shadow in order to make it look softer. A great combo!
Your lip brush is the smaller one with tight bristles and rounded tip. This, you can use with ANY lip color or gloss you desire. It can easily tend to the curvature of your lips to give them the perfect shape or wash of color.
Lastly is your angled brow brush which can be used with powders or creams for the desired effect. You can utilize the angle to mimic the way in which your brow hairs grow when applying your brow shadow or cream. You may also give this brush a whirl as a winged eyeliner friend and/or a lip brush too!
This brush set is off the charts - a great find and addition to your at home or travel kits. It's everything you need in one cute PINK roll up case. Live your best BRUSH life!!
