The beginner’s guide to eyeshadow brushes

Mastering the art of eye makeup is not an easy job; it gets more difficult when you don’t have the right tools. If you often watch beauty gurus on YouTube and try to recreate their eye makeup look with utmost precision only to notice that your end result looks nothing like theirs, then guess what, it’s not your skills that need work, but your makeup tools that are in need of a serious upgrade.

You know how the base of your makeup looks different when you use your fingers for application and when you use a brush or makeup sponge? The same applies to eye makeup. Therefore, today we’re going to take you through the different types of eyeshadow brushes you can add to your vanity to level up your makeup skills. Take a look…


Blending brush

Cut crease brush

An eyeshadow blending brush is usually flat, dense and has compact bristles. This allows the brush to blend any harsh lines and creates an even and smooth look. As a beginner, you don’t need too many brushes — just the right ones and this is one of them.


Stamp eyeshadow brush

Cut crease brush

A stubby compact brush that is used for picking a lot of product in one application. If you love a bold eye makeup look like a coloured block shadow, then this should be your go-to brush.


Fluffy blending brush

Cut crease brush

If you love creating smokey eye looks, you should invest in this brush right away. The fluffy blending brush is an expert at blending colours for a seamless look. So, if you’re playing around with more than one colour, this brush should be right up your alley.


Cut crease brush

Cut crease brush

As the name suggests, a cut crease brush is designed to apply eyeshadow right in your crease. This brush helps add more definition to your eye makeup look. It’s small enough to help you draw with precision and also works well when you want to highlight the inner corner area.
