What does it really matter when you choose a makeup brush? Which are the secrets that make the difference?
An absolutely indispensable instrument in a makeup artist’s work is the brush. The canvas – the client’s face – is right in front of you, so what will you use to get the perfect result? Buying brushes requires an accurate and calculated approach.
Be aware, there are a lot of fakes on the Internet.
So, see below 3 tips for buying THE BEST makeup brushes!
1. BRISTLES - Pay attention to the hair, natural or synthetic.
If it’s natural, it should be flexible, trimmed at the end and have a mild natural shine. Squirrel hair will be very soft and flexible, goat hair will be flexible, but a bit drier and thick, and sable will be fairly flexible, with straight hairs, a natural color.
If it’s a synthetic fiber, it will have to be thin, strongly held together, have a fairly shiny look. A synthetic bristle that shines like plastic fiber will be of low quality.
2. COMFORT. Try a brush out, when possible, so you make sure its bristles respond to your movement and the handle is very comfortable in your hand. If you find a perfect brush, it will also become your favorite.
3. CONSTRUCTION. Make sure you get the best quality of execution, in a brush. The bristles have to be very well held together, the metal needs to be very clean and neat, and the handle must respond to the anatomy of your hand.
