Brushes Made Easy - The BASE Pro Artists Brush Guide

When it comes to achieving a flawless, crease-free finish, it’s all about having the right tools in your beauty box.

Make-up brushes are not only an essential component to achieving the perfect finish, they are also great for employing a number of techniques that will allow you to experiment with different looks and finishes, so they are definitely a worthwhile investment.

That said, pinpointing the perfect brushes can be a bit of mind-field if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

Don’t worry, this is where we’re here to help. We’ve complied a handy BASE Pro Artist guide, which will introduce you to a range of high performance brushes, whilst outlining what each brush does and why you should use it!

The Shadow Brush – This is a brush that is perfect for packing on and dispersing your eye shadow. To apply, simply place the brush in the product and gently dab onto your eye in order to release the colour. This brush is also ideal for use with cream and powder.

The Brow Brush – For perfectly groomed brows, this brush should be your first port of call. Complete with firm but gentle bristles, this beauty box staple will ensure that your brows are always shaped the way you want them.

The Buff Brush – When it comes to applying liquid and cream foundation, this is the only brush we will ever use. But it does take a certain technique to ensure that you achieve optimum results.
