Makeup "EYE" Brushes Every Girl Should Have

Eyes Brushes every female should have, barbies beauty bits
It’s Makeup Monday and as part of my brush series, I’m going to share with you some "EYE" brushes that every female should have in her makeup arsenal.  Similar to a painter, the perfect makeup strokes can’t be achieved without the correct eye brush.

So Let's Get To The Point: Bottom line, the right brushes can make a big difference in the final results! It’s the difference between a great smoky eye, and a disastrous, “you got beat up look”.  Therefore, if you are one who chooses to use the mini-brush that comes with your makeup, STOP and invest in some good quality brushes.

Although there are so many brands and brushes to pick from, they all have a purpose.  Today I’m going to be referencing MAC brushes, as these are the ones I am most familiar with and honesty, work the best.

So What Brushes Do I Spy For My Eye?

 239 Eyeshader Brush: I’m in love with this brush as it can do a lot.  It is fluffy, so it enables you to pick up and deposit color to the entire eye lid. This brush has a tapered, rounded edge with smooth, firm, fine fibers; it’s fool proof.

286 Dual Fibre Blending Brush: Obviously by the name, this brush is also great for blending.  It is a two-toned, duo-fibre brush of goat and synthetic fibres that picks up a “Bit” of color providing a sheer, application.  Yes, I said goat hair, it is very common in makeup brushes and from what I’ve experienced,   it is the most effective hair type in brushes.  These goat hairs are great at picking up color or powder and depositing it evenly and smoothly.  Synthetic, is wonderful for applying cream shadows, and cream eyeliners.

217 Blending Brush: The bristles on this brush are densely packed, allowing you to pick up a lot of color.  I like using this brush to apply shadow in the crease, as well as using it for shading.  (This brush will help you achieve sexy smokey eyes).

 224 Tapered Brush: This brush is a more controlled brush.  It works great for blending, so if you’re in fear of applying to much color, no worries with this brush. This brush has soft fibers which taper to form a medium size dome shape

  1. The 239 Eyeshader Brush is my favorite brush! MAC brushes are great, but I've also tried Sigma brushes and they are very comparable. Have you used these?

  2. Like your blog! Love the brush post. Thanks for the eyebrow comment. :)
