How to Pick Makeup Brushes | Makeup Tutorials


Hi I am Patricia Longo and I am a celebrity
make up artist. I have worked with models with sports illustrated
like Propin Jecker and Julie Henderson to Alice Povin at thirty rock. All those things that experts do that the
average person does not know how to do will learn how to do it on these videos. There is so many different brush rolls out
there. I prefer disable brushes but there is also
squirrel but they are so very nice. They are synthetic brushes but you have to
know which one is good for what. I always tell people feel very sensitive skin
you want to do the synthetic you don’t want any horse hair on your face because I’ve seen
people get allergic to that even though it feel nice for some reasons people get allergic
reactions disabled or squirreled and there is all different types and I recommend walking
into Safora and letting them know if you’re skin sensitive and which brushes would be
good for your skin. I wish every cosmetic line will bride on their
brushes exactly what the brush does. Meaning if you get a brush and you pull it
out it says Eye Brow brush, contour brush , precision brush, blush brush. I think that will help people know which brush
is which and whats it used for because thats the most confusing thing because they don’t
know which brush to use where. And I hope in these videos you’ll see how
I explain precision brush is or contour brush and I’ll show you what an ankle brush does
and how I use it for the eye brow . I think that’s what is important if they can just
learn which brush to use appropriately it will make the application a lot easier. These are some of the brushes that I think
every make up artist should have on their kit. First one to me is the powder brush. You have to have the powder brush in order
to set the make up with the loose powder finishing powder mineral powder you need a powder brush. The second brush which I think is extremely
important is your blush brush. This is the classic blush brush. Its a little round a little fat and I love
it and this does the trick for all blushes. A contour brush is very important because
you want to contour the face. This is what gives definition to the face
this is where you contour your cheeks I contour my jaw I give myself a little definition on
the nose. You want a contour brush. This gives precision to the entire face. Of course the first thing you are going to
apply on the face is foundation and some people use punches but my favorite thing is using
a foundation brush. This is a general typical foundation brush. It almost looks like a paint brush. So basically you’re painting the foundation
its like when you paint a house its the same way you would paint you’re face. So you will have a little paint brush. This is a foundation brush. So now I move on to the eyes when we talk
about eye shadow my favourite thing is a flat eye shadow brush and a contour. This one just happens to be ball. I am still talking about the eyes but this
one is just a simple eye shadow brush that if you just wanted a basic eye shadowed brush
you just go with a simple one like this that puts the eye shadow all over the eyelid. So when I am working with my Mascara and my
eye brows on one side is the comb and on the other side is a brush. This is a very very essential brush. Its the brow and comb for the lashes. Now some people like putting on their concealer
with their finger or they actually put the product directly on because some concealers
come with the stick or a little brush but this is the actual concealer brush that you
may have to use if you are using a cream concealer that doesn’t have an application so you might
need a concealer brush and this really good to touch up the flaws around their face. And then I have the ankle brush this is really
great either liner or eyebrow filler. I always like to have an ankle brush because
it could do two jobs. So this is really good brush to have on your
kit. So some people use mineral powder, finishing
powder whatever powder you want and you’ll like to use a brush like this because it takes
up just the little bit of the powder on the ends and it applies it very lightly. You can also use this as a buffer for foundation. Sometimes I take liquid foundation I just
want to add a little on certain spots and this brush can do that too. This is a contour brush. I usually use this for loose powder or even
blush and basically what it does it adds a little shine here and a little powder here
some highlight there I could contour with this blush brush. And my final brush which I always say is a
must is my little lip brush. You need a lip brush in your kit to put that
lipstick on or that lipflaws. And I have this one which is a duo where I
put lipstick on one side and lip gloss on the other side. So those are the essential brushes for your
make up kit.

  1. "The contouring brush is important because you have to contour the face."…. Who came up with this script? Is this even scripted?? The information should've been something along the lines of – "If you're looking for a new contouring brush, you want to look for a brush with angled bristles. The bristles should be somewhat compact like what a foundation brush would have, but with flare at the ends so that the contour won't have sharp, harsh edges. Make sure to look at the ends of the bristle fibers and see that they aren't hooked and misshapen…."… THAT would be a helpful video. Jeezis… I would never hire this lady to do my makeup, she can't even explain what a good brush looks like and why you want it that way. She seems to be more concerned with how she looks in front of the camera than actually giving helpful information.
