Hi Loves! This is my first post on Raia’s World. I’m super excited to start blogging! The first topic is brushes. I honestly feel that once I started using brushes to apply my makeup it started to look a lot better! I don’t want you to get so caught up on brands…although I will be sharing my favorite brands, it’s the type of brush that is really important.
No matter what product I use to fill in my brows I always use a spooly to blend the product out. You can get this from anywhere!! The one I’m currently using is a two-sided #12 Anastasia Beverly Hills brow brush. The other end is a small angled brush that I use to fill in my brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow. The last brush I use for my brows is a EB 23 Sedona Lace brush. I use this bigger angled brush to clean around my brows with concealer.
To pack on color to the lid I use small eyeshadow brushes. My favorites are the MAC 213 brush which picks up shimmer colors very well and a crown brush I got from IMATS LA. It has no number but I think it was only $3.
The next eye brush are crease brushes that I use to apply a transition color between the brow and lid. My transition color is usually a flesh tone color to defuse harsh lines. My all time favorite crease brush is the EB 09 brush from Sedona Lace. It picks up color well and is a dream for blending. My next go to crease brush is the Real Techniques duo-fiber eye brush.
The next crease brushes I use are to place colors in my outer v area and deepen my crease color. Both of these brushes are good because they come to a point but are still fluffy enough to blend into your lid color. The two I reach for the most are the Sedona Lace EB15 (can you see a theme here lol) and a crown brush I got from IMATS LA.
The last eye brush I use is from BH Cosmetics (got in a set). It is a flat definer brush that I use to put color on my lower lash line. I am really into smoking out my lash line, whether it’s with a pop of color or just smoking out my eyeliner. This brush works great.
