Beauty Basics - What are these brushes for? - Part 3: Eye & Lip Brushes


When you are new to makeup all the different brushes can be confusing. There are just so many. When my cousin started getting for into makeup she bought a brush set and text me a video of them asking what they were all for. 

There are so many different brushes intended for different things. Of course you don’t have to use the brushes for what they are intended. I don’t always use them for the intended purpose. I use them for what I think is best for me, and what brush applies the products they way I want.

There are so many different brushes. Some brushes have the same name but are different sizes and slightly different shapes. It can all get a bit confusing.

There are so many different makeup brushes, I will most likely miss a few, but I think I’ll get the majority.

I will be doing this in three parts, Face Base, Cheeks and Eyes & Lips. This is the Eyes & Lips post. I decided to throw eyes & lips together because there aren’t enough lip brushes for their own post. This post is going to cover the brushes that are typically used for applying eye shadow, and other eye products, and brushes typically used for applying lip products.

All of these brushes can be used wet or dry, with liquids and powders. All of these brushes are used with eye products to create awesome eyeshadow looks. They are intended for the same use so what I’m going to do in this post is describe what these brushes look like and list the main thing they are intended for.

Beauty Basics - Well Known Brands Guide: Drugstore vs High End


There are tons of makeup brands out there, and there are lot of names everyone knows no matter where you live. Today I’m going to take the most well known brands and sort them out into Drugstore or High-end.

These are brands that I have seen people from all around the world use. I have found these to be the most well known and most common brands. These are the brands I know most people in beauty have heard of. You would find these brands walking down the asides of Ulta or Sephora, with the exception of a few high-end brands that you only find at a counter at a department store.

This list is a mix of makeup, skin care, hair care, nail polish, and makeup brush brands. It is also a mix of American and UK brands.
