Hello hello hello ;D
I am back on a Saturday with a new post!

I realized I spoke a lot of makeup but never the brushes!
So let me use this time to make a short and personal post on makeup brushes essentials that are a must for me. These are just plain my own personal choice in all aspects, I personally love and think these brushes work well on me :) and I hope they work well on you too.

Or if you are confused on what to buy for makeup brushes (the essentials)
I hope this post helps! :*

Alright! So before I start, I am not saying you have to buy this items individually. There are shops where they sell brush in a set and probably easier for beginner to buy a set :) I personally choose and pick brushes that are useful and I will use in daily makeup.

AND! no i am not teaching you that this is the right brushes but i am sharing with you my own opinions, thoughts and tips.

Most of the brushes, well all of them are from Masami Shouko
(no this isnt a sponsored post, I just happen to love them)

Here is the list of the brushes must-haves for me:

Before I start with the usage and how I use each of these brushes, 
I just want to briefly explain why I love Masami Shouko's brushes.
I love the density of the brushes, I felt with the volume and the density, it blends all the makeup into places and evenly. I love the shape and the size that ease me to have control when I apply makeup.
I love how they have variety of choices. 

Alright, the first step I always do is foundation.
Some people apply eyeshadow first but hey this is how i do my makeup hahah
There are a few brushes available in Masami's collection but I pick this common ones.
This is used for cream foundation mostly but liquid will do too it is just that, with liquid,
it will leave brush strikes on the face, but no worries, just keep on blending!

Patience is the key! haha

Next, for an oily skin like me, I need to settle my face with powder.
It could be compact or loose powder. Some people used the sponge that comes with it but I prefer to use brush, I feel that using brush it doesnt give a thick and cake-y finishing on the face.

Unless you are up for a photoshoot or something then the sponge will be good to use.
I love using powder brush because it spread the powder evenly and it gives a natural finishing for my daily basis makeup look.

Then, for a round face well for all face shape, I personally think shading or contouring is a must to give more structure to the face. This angled brush is super handy for it. The size and shape fits well for my face when i contour and with the texture of the brushes, it blends in nicely without any harsh and pricky feeling. This brush can be use for blusher brush too just remember to clean the brush after shading/contouring. So i guess a multi function one ;D

And next, Concealer brush, Well I used this for concealer but this is useful for any other cream makeup product because of the shape, the material and the density of it. It blends my concealer perfectly well even when I use this to blend away the concealer or highlight cream for my makeup.

When it comes to applying eyeshadow, there are variety of applicator for it.
I personally pick this brush. I love it!

Why? Look at the thickness, shape and the density of the brushes.
I use this for powder eyeshadow or loose ones, it picks up well and apply nicely.
The best thing about this, the shape of the brush that is "almond" like so when you apply it onto your eyes, it helps to give the almond shape onto the eyelids.

I love how it easily picks up the eyeshadow and when I pat it onto the lids,
the colors are still there, vibrantly settled well onto the lids!

Up next is the blending brush!
you can leave that almond shaped of eyeshadow on the lids alone,
you gotta blend them to make it look natural ;D

I love this blending brush, the shape fits well onto the crease of my eyes,
it feels super comfortable when I blend my eyeshadow and the best thing,
it blends the eyeshadow well! The brushes strand are flexible so it follows the direction of your hand.

I use this brush for my eyebrow although i believe you can use this for eyeliner both gel or pencil or perhaps eyeshadow. As you all know I have to shape my eyebrow whenever I go out, or if i dont, I probably will get weird stares from strangers haha

I love the stiffness of the brush strands, it helps with the shaping of the eyebrow well without having me to measure the straight-ness of the line haha :P

and that is all for my brushes must haves!
What are yours? let me know in the comment box below, might try them out haha
