With a few different tools and tips on how to use them, you can do it too!
Oval Makeup Brushes
Oval makeup brushes have been on the rise recently with a variety of different shapes and styles. The unique shape and design of the brush and bristles are specifically designed for self-makeup application whereas other brushes with a straight handle are designed for artists applying makeup to another person. Synthetic hair bristles allow the brush to stay smooth and soft while applying makeup seamlessly.
The larger oval brushes may seem too large and uncomfortable to fit in your hand but in reality, it is the perfect fit. With most regular makeup brushes, you only use with two or three fingers which doesn’t actually allow you to have full control of your makeup application. The unique handle shape allows your full hand to be involved allowing for precise and even application.
Why are there so many brushes in some of the sets you find? Some sets have up to 10 different brushes allowing each brush to be used for a different area of the face. Some brushes can be used for eye makeup, others for foundation, and others for highlighting and contouring. These brush sets can give you endless options in makeup application.
