As makeup lovers, we’re hoarders of foundations, concealers, bronzers, correctors and so much more. But what use are these if you miss out of the correct tool to apply them perfectly? While there are a series of makeup brushes in the market, the latest ones that every beauty enthusiast is saving up for are oval brushes. Want to know more about them? Read on to find out.
These brushes are synthetic brushes that promise to give you a flawless finish. They might look like tiny hairbrushes but the good news is that they come in various sizes perfect for applying foundation, concealer and even contouring cream or powder.
How are they different vis-à-vis other face brushes?
Oval brushes have 10 times more fiber than usual brushes. The size, texture and feel of the brush ensures that the bristles sheer out your foundation without any uneven patches—one of our biggest concerns while applying foundation or concealer. Even the handles of the brushes are curved, which makes movement and application so simple. But one of the prime reasons for these brushes becoming every makeup mogul’s favourite tool is because it feels absolute soft on the skin.

How to use them?
Once you’ve applied the foundation on your face, go for the big oval makeup brush. Blend the foundation in circular motions like you’d do with a kabuki brush. These larger sized brushes are perfect for bronzers if you want that sculpted look. You can also go for linear oval brushes to apply highlighter on the high points of your face while you can use the eyeshadow brushes for that perfect smokey eye blending.
