Basic Eye Makeup Brushes for beginners
Just like the face makeup brushes, eye makeup brushes are very important. That’s a different thing that you can still do the eye makeup using your fingers only! I will share some of my favorite eye related makeup brushes that I will recommend that the beginners should have and may start with. These are the basic brushes that can help you achieve most of the look and makes your eye makeup application a whole lot easier.

Angled brush- This can be a multipurpose brush when it comes to eye makeup. With an angled brush you can fill in your eyebrows, apply eye shadows as eyeliner especially when you are not feeling like putting gels or liquids on your eyes or doesn’t want any harsh lines. Then an angled brush can be helpful as you just dip your brush in any eye shadow you want and line your lash line just the way, you do with an eyeliner.
Eye shadow brush – You might have seen those tiny applicators that come along with your eye shadow quads, duos and trios. Honestly, I am not a fan of sponge tip applicators as they makes the application a bit patchy, hence an eye shadow brush is something, you must have if you love eye makeup. Flat eye shadow brush is primarily used to pack or put the color on the lid which is the very basic step in any eye makeup. Vega and Audrey makes very cheap and affordable eye shadow brushes that you can try.
Tapered brush- Tapered blending looks like a blending brush but the bristles at the centre are pointed rather than the round dome shape of the normal lending brushes. Tapered blending brush is mostly used on the crease to darken it and at the same time blending the harsh edges.
Eyeliner brush- If you like liquid eyeliners and feel that your hand shakes or the line that
you made is not even then try putting your liquid eyeliner with a liner brush. Reason being when you use the brush that comes along the bottle, you are actually holding the cap that is attached with the brush due to which your hands are more likely to shake whereas with eyeliner brushes, you get more controlled strokes and steady lines. Try it and experience it yourself.
Smudger brush- These brushes can be of two types, one has a round sponge tip and other has bristles arranged in a dome like shape. Smudger brush can be handy, when you like to smudge your eyeliner pencil for a subtle and soft smokey look. They can be used under the lower lash line or waterline to give a complete smoked out eye look.
Fluffy Blending brush- This is one brush which is an absolute must have. Not only it helps blending but also creating a gradient while using multiple colors. Most importantly it softens the harsh edges. Blending brushes are fluffy in appearance and can vary in size. You should get one that suits your eye size. I mean, if you have small eyes and getting a large blending brush is not the best choice. I have seen cheap and affordable blending brushes on ebay.com or buyincoins. Else if you really want to invest in brushes try Real techniques, Sigma, Mac, coastal scents etc.
So, that was all from me and those were the brushes which I think are basic and important enough to do a lot of eye makeup related tasks for you.
