How To Use Make-Up Brushes

Make-up artist Lisa Glassock shows you how to use make-up brushes to get a professional looking finish. Get the look you want with VideoJug's simple steps to use make-up brushes.

Step 1: Blusher brush

Use angled blusher brushes to get into the socket line and for applying highlighter to the tops of the cheeks. Blusher brushes are useful for applying powder to the whole face, giving a light even finish.

Step 2: Eye shadow brush

An eye shadow brush can be used to apply eye shadow all over the lid, and can be used to apply concealer into the tiny corners and lines of the eyes.

Step 3: Lipstick brush

A lipstick brush gives an even coverage of lipstick, and is wide but also thin and tapered for effective application in the ‘cupids bow' and lip corners.

Step 4: Eyeliner brush

An eyeliner brush, with long bristles and a fine point, can get in between eyelashes and gives very fine, neat detail.

Step 5: Care

If you use synthetic brushes, clean them regularly to keep them in good condition.

Ideally spend more to get brushes made from natural hair.
