When I first started doing my own makeup, I use to watch hour on hour of makeup tutorials. The one thing I took away from those videos was... makeup brushes are the key to achieving that perfect look. I learnt that different brushed are used for different things. For instance, I have three go-to brushes that I use to apply my eyeshadow.... Mac 224 to lay down my transition color and blending out harsh eyeshadow lines, MAC 217 is great for adding and blending eyeshadow to my crease and last MAC 239 for packing eyeshadow to my lids. Down below is the ultimate guideline for tips and uses to help with the confusing world of makeup brushes. I hope you find this guide helpful.
