Photo tutorial : Basic types of eye makeup brushes and how to use them

 

Hi everyone!

I’ve been receiving a lot of requests related to eye makeup brushes and I decided to do this post on the Basics of eye makeup brushes to answer all those queries.

Today I’ll be talking about the basic types of eye makeup brushes and how to use them- with the help of a photo tutorial.

Types of eye makeup brushes

 

1.       Eye shadow applicator brush

This is the most basic brush required to apply eye shadow. Generally these brushes are quite dense so that the bristles can pick up color efficiently and  transfer it to the lid without fall out.

I am using The Body Shop mineral eye shadow application brush to apply MAC eye shadow ‘Romp’ here.

Blackened olive green-gold smokey eye with coral lips : FOTD and makeup breakdown

 

 

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing the makeup breakdown of a look I recently posted in my favorite look of the week HERE. I love green eye makeup and I love doing smokey eyes- this look has the best of both!

Its a smokey eye with a blackened olive green -gold duochrome eye shadow from Coastal Scents that I picked up some time back. The look is very simple but looks interesting because of the complexity of this eye shadow. All I’ve done is smudged a black crayon kohl all over lid and lower lash line as base and applied this eye shadow generously all over the lid and softened at the crease. Lined the eyes with the same kohl, used a white-gold eyeshadow to highlight the inner corner, tear duct and browbone and  finished off with mascara. Hope you like the look 🙂

Neutral pink and brown office wear eye makeup: Step-wise photo tutorial and FOTD

 

 

 

Hi everyone!

Today I’m doing a step-wise photo tutorial of a neutral office wear eye makeup. This look was requested by many and I hope you all like it 🙂

For a natural looking subtle eye makeup- it is important to not use any strong colors or harsh lines. Eye shadows in shades like soft browns and neutral pinks paired with brown liner and mascara give a very natural and polished look.

This is the look I created  for this tutorial :
